Bingo Idol is the latest addition to Tau Gaming’s stable of sites and is another on the real money (no wagering terms) Dragonfish platform. Taking it’s theme from reality style shows such as Britain’s Got Talent and The X Factor, Bingo Idol would like you to become the next bingo star.  However, does this site have the potential to be a star amongst the dwindling number of bingo brands as well as sister sites such as Bingo Besties? We’ve cast our beady eyes over it’s talents – but have we hit the golden buzzer or will it be a “no”?

Progressive bingo jackpots can be won in some rooms.

Free Bingo

Free bingo is available to play at Bingo Idol. New players used to able to access the Free4U room and pick up cards without making a deposit for the first couple of days after registration but this now seems to have ended. These days the room is only accessible to funded players and offers a £4 prize game plays daily at 4pm. Despite this small prize the game still attracts a large number of players. The only other free games that are available are the £250 Saucy Sunday and £1K Monday. Both these games play across the whole of the Dragonfish Network!

Featured Slots & Games

Slots from top providers such as Eyecon Games, Slingo and Net Entertainment are available to play at Bingo Idol alongside a handful of progressive jackpots and instant wins. You'll find all the slots linked via the lobby and these are under sections such as Favourites, Hot Games, New, Daily Jackpots and Scratch Cards. Note that you generally won't find table games, roulette, blackjack and live casino at Real Money sites.

Bingo Idol Promotions

Promotions at Bingo Idol tend to be network orientated. These include The Big £10K, the network's loyalty offering where players earn tickets for every £10 deposited/wagered during the previous month. The Big £10K plays on the 10th of every month at 10pm. Look out for Mystery Jackpots and other free games such as those mentioned above. You can also find daily offers on Real Money sites. You will usually have to make a deposit to claim the offer. All regular players can also claim daily free free spins and tickets as part of the site's loyalty scheme. . Bingo Idol does not have any exclusive offers nor does it have any community on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

Responsible Gambling

No app is required to play Bingo Idol. You can login and play as normal with mobile, tablet and desktop. This gives you access to the bingo rooms and slots. Deposits can be made safely and securely via a number of payment options including Paypal and debit cards. Like all UK bingo brands, responsible gambling is very important and therefore Bingo Idol has a number of tools you can use. These include setting deposit limits, taking time outs or cooling off periods, or choosing to self exclude from all brands powered by Dragonfish.

Penny’s Thoughts On Bingo Idol

Bingo Idol doesn’t qualify for a golden buzzer, far from it, but we’re not sure it deserves to be buzzed out completely. The problem it faces, and the same applies to all these Real Wagering brands, is that “no wagering” is no longer new. When big brands like Jackpotjoy, Heart Bingo and Costa Bingo are offering no wagering plus big jackpots, exciting games and promotions then this network – in fact Dragonfish as a whole – needs to up it’s game.
