Joining the Costa camp as their first new release of 2016 was Crocodile Bingo. This snappy brand joins the likes of Season, Monkey, Treasure, Wish and Rio in the same stable and also on the Dragonfish platform. This means that at Crocodile you get the standard formula of free bingo, decent first deposit bonus and regular reloads. In more recent times it’s been acquired by 888 and now offers no wagering bingo!
Crocodile Bingo Welcome Offer
As of September 2021 new players to Crocodile Bingo are welcomed with a deposit bonus. Register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 to receive a 300% bonus (up to £200). In addition new players also collect 30 free spins on a selected slot. Wins from these spins attract no wagering terms as they're paid in cash. However the bingo bonus has wagering terms of x4 the deposit + bonus. These changes put Crocodile Bingo on par with Costa Bingo and pretty much ends it's chapter on no wagering terms on bingo bonuses.
No Deposit Free Bingo
A no deposit bingo room is available for new players. The Bingo Academy is open for 48 hours after registration at Crocodile Bingo. Free games play in this room every 20 minutes and give you the chance to win small prizes. These are £1, £2 or £5 for the 75 ball full house. All prizes are paid in bonuses so wagering terms will apply.
75 & 90 Ball Bingo Rooms
As well as free bingo, Crocodile Bingo offers a 75 ball, 75 ball 5 Line, 90 ball and 52 ball bingo. The latter is a card based version of bingo that uses playing cards instead of bingo numbers. A bit like Cinco that you can find at Tombola. There's also the aforementioned Bingo Academy as well as jackpot rooms. Penny Bingo fans should check out the promotions as this network of sites host 1p games every day from 2pm to midnight.
Slots & GamesCrocodile Bingo has the usual selection of Dragonfish slots which can be found via the lobby. Featured titles include Starburst, Pigasus, Shopping Spree, Irish Luck, Pay Of The Dead and Lost Island. You can find slots via Top Games, Daily Drop Jackpots, Jackpots, Megaways and Deal Or No Deal. Slingo games such as Reel King, Fluffy Favourites and Monopoly can also be found but you won't find table games or live casino. Unlike a lot of bingo brands Crocodile Bingo doesn't tend to run any slot promotions which may appeal to bingo players.
Bingo Player Promotions
When Crocodile Bingo launched it offered players plenty of promotions including prize games and jackpots. However as time has ticked on and the group of sites sold to 888 it's fair to say that Crocodile Bingo has been left relatively unattended. There are still regular offers such as cashback and jackpots but these are limited. That said you can play for 7 x £1000 games that take place every Friday (5pm to 11pm) provided you're a qualifying depositor. There are also network free games including a £250 one every Sunday and one for £1000 every Monday.
No app is required to play Crocodile Bingo. 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 Crocodile Bingo 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 Crocodile Bingo
Crocodile Bingo does have some good points! Free games, the Crack A Croc depositing game, fun Aussie theme etc. However it does need it’s own exclusives to hit the heights. Unfortunately it’s not any different from others on the same network – as the identical review will testify. Crocodile has suffered from ownership changes, UKGC interventions and the bingo market becoming over saturated. It did however outlive our very own Snappy Bingo so in the battle of the Crocs it’s a winner!
