Bucky Bingo is another brand that has gone through a series of different incarnations. When it originally launched it boasted a 70s theme with a dude like character overseeing proceedings. However the site was bought by the owners of Betfred and since then Bucky has changed considerably. The dude has been replaced by a horse and more recently Bucky has changed platform. It left Virtue Fusion in 2020 and now is part of the Dragonfish Network. The move means that players can enjoy exciting bingo and slots but has it been for the best?
Bucky Bingo Welcome Bonus
If you originally joined Bucky Bingo when it was on the Virtue Fusion platform then you will need to rejoin now it’s moved home. This is good news as you’ll get another welcome bonus. New players who deposit £10 will receive a further £20 to play. This is split £10 for bingo (x4 wagering) and £10 for slots (x30 wagering). Additionally new depositors also receive 100 free bingo tickets that can be used in the Chatterbox room (wagering terms apply). If you’d like to try before you buy then Bucky players can access The Daily Doozey free bingo room for 3 days with no deposit required.
Featured Bingo Rooms
Bucky Bingo gives you access to the usual Dragonfish Network rooms that offer 75 ball and 90 ball bingo. The most popular 24/7 rooms are Chatterbox, High 5 and 90s Extreme. You may find a 52 ball card game like Hit 52 and/or 52 ball bingo roulette available to play too. Progressive jackpots are on offer in some rooms plus there are also regular jackpot games such as £600 Dream Monday, £50 Daily Treat and £500 Wacky Wednesday. A new Even Stevens room, where players all have the same number of tickets, was launched in June 2020.
Free Bingo Games
Free bingo is available to play at Bucky Bingo. New players can access The Daily Doozey for the 3 days after registration. Other free bingo rooms such as Quids In and On The House, are only accessible to depositors! Most of the free games offer prizes as a bonus, therefore wagering terms will apply to any wins. Look out for £1K Magical Mondays and £250 Sunday Sizzle jackpots as both these are free to play too. It should be noted that pretty much all Dragonfish sites offer these free Monday and Sunday games.

Penny’s Thoughts On Bucky Bingo
Moving platforms can sometimes give a brand a much needed lease of life. However we always think moving from Virtue Fusion/Playtech which is the best option in our view rarely works out well. Bucky’s move is interesting but other than the welcome offer it’s hard to see them offering anything exclusive or unique when compared to other brands on Dragonfish. That’s not necessary a bad thing if you’re happy to play on the platform, but as reviewers we want to see sites stand out from the crowd.
