Nova Bingo was acquired by 8 Ball Games in November 2014, a company that are notorious for not using affiliates to promote their brands (of which there are many online today). This means that we have no means of promoting their brand so we have redirected our links to Iceland Bingo, another brand that is part of the Dragonfish network.
The following review will no longer be updated and is for information purposes only. The review was last updated in November 2013.

If you’re looking for an intergalactic bingo experience, you might think when you land on the homepage of Nova Bingo, that’s exactly what you’re going to get. There are space ships and rockets, and a really well designed homepage, but break the clouds and enter space and you soon see that this is just another Dragonfish site. The homepage is sleek and pretty well designed, but once you open that bingo lobby things are likely to get very familiar, particularly if you’ve played at other Dragonfish sites before. The bingo client, games, chat hosts and players are identical across the entire network, so once you open the game, you could be playing at any Dragonfish Bingo site.
The sign up process is fairly simple and standard, just a few simple details and you’re ready to play. If you want to try before you buy, head to the Free For All Bingo room where you can play free games from 7am to 7pm daily at Nova Bingo.
The lobby itself is well laid out and easy to navigate, as is the bingo and the bingo client is very sleek and appealing. There is a reason this software is used by hundreds of sites, and that’s because it really is great, if a little market saturated. The bingo comes in several flavours, 75-ball pattern, 75-ball five line and 90-ball bingo and you can access all these rooms easily. Once you are in the bingo rooms you’ll see ticket purchasing to the left, chat to the right and tickets that take up most of the screen.
Like other brands on this software, the bingo is complemented with a selection of exciting side games, slots, instant wins and casino games and these are great fun to play. Many of the named games will be familiar and there are big jackpots on slots such as the Fluffy Favourites and Cleopatra Slot for those who like their bingo with a side of games!
Just like the bingo, the promotions, reload bonuses, jackpot games and everything else that keeps us playing, as exactly the same as every other Dragonfish Bingo site out there. There are generous promotions, and big jackpots but there isn’t anything different here at Nova Bingo than you could get at another 100 or so sites. If this is out of this world bingo, we’d like to go back to earth please!
Overall, Nova Bingo does offer some pretty playable bingo, and again we’ll mentioned how well designed their homepage is. However, once you get past that, it’s just same old, same old Dragonfish Bingo, and that might be music to your ears if you’re a fan of the network, but for those looking for something new, you won’t find it on a rocket ship into space.
Nova Bingo Review – Bingo Games
The Dragonfish interface used at Nova Bingo is one of the most popular around, and that makes it one of the easiest to play too. If you’re looking for simple, out of the box bingo, you may well have found it here. The bingo comes in several variants, originally just 75-ball pattern bingo, 90-ball was added quite a while ago, but a more recent addition to the site is 75-ball five line bingo, and it’s shaken up the game quite a bit.
When you are playing, hit the options button and you can personalise everything from your bingo to chat. If you prefer to daub your own cards there’s an option for that, and if you prefer to turn off some of the chat options, or even switch off the bingo caller, you can do that too.
The selection of mini games at Nova Bingo is pretty impressive, from slots to instants, to casino games and the game options here allow you to either play the games directly from the bingo lobby, or directly from the bingo client while your game is in play.
One area that Dragonfish really excels, and you’ll see it here at Nova Bingo is with the dedicated free bingo. The brand hosts the Free for All Bingo room and you can play games in here for twelve hours every single day, from 7am to 7pm for £1 jackpots. The pots aren’t huge, but the tickets are free. There’s £6,000 a month to be given away in these free games, so their certainly not to be sniffed at.
The big jackpot here is the world famous, if elusive, £1 million tumbling coverall. It’s a coverall jackpot that could win you a £1 million prize, but the prize is tumbling with every call, and no one has yet become a bingo millionaire playing this game.
Each room also has its own progressive jackpots, and the network also provides many pre-buy, guaranteed jackpot games on the schedule. These are fairly generous and offer plenty to get you excited, but do be aware these games attract many players, as they are accessible right across the network.
Nova Bingo offer some pretty impressive promotions including monthly specials, big prebuys and special jackpot games. However, while they might look generous on first glance, these specials are available right across the network, and this site offers no unique promotions at all. So while the promotions might be generous giveaways, your chances of winning are much lower when you consider that you are competing with an entire network of players, from many different sites.
