The Mandalay Media Group expanded at an alarming rate during 2015, adding a number of different brands to their line-up including Giant Bingo, Monkey Bingo and Treasure Bingo to name but a few. Dino Bingo launched in February of 2015 and even though we can’t see any correlation between our favourite games and those long lost reptiles, they have managed to pull it off thanks their usual mix of a slick layout and cartoon style graphics.
The Dino Bingo homepage is everything we have to come to expect from a Mandalay Media brand because it uses the same tried and tested formula. They use the same basic design with every one of their sites and just change the graphics to match. This is not necessarily a bad thing though, as everything works well with all of the important information you could need right there in front of you. They do not rely on loads of flashing images, just a scrolling banner, a couple featured banners advertising their latest offers and promotions, and a welcome message from the team.
Click on the ‘Join Now’ button and you will be whisked away to a registration page where you will need to enter all of the usual details such as a username, email address and telephone number etc. You will be asked to enter your credit card details but this is for security purposes only, and they won’t actually take any money unless you decide to make a deposit. They will welcome you with some free money so you can get a feel for the place, and if you decide to wager any of your own hard earned cash, you will pick up plenty of bonuses.
Head into the lobby and you will find the dinosaur theme has been continued with bingo balls designed to look like giant eggs! There are loads of tabs to choose from including free bingo, 75 ball bingo, 90 ball bingo plus all of their special events and jackpot games. It’s always worth taking the time to explore these tabs further because they change on a regular basis and you could easily miss out on a new promotion or a few extra freebies. From here you can also access their instant games, your options and banking in case you need to add funds in a hurry.
There are rooms to suit all tastes and budgets and it does not matter which you choose, you can’t help but be impressed by how professional everything looks. The screen is split equally with half dedicated to your cards and half for a chat room. The hosts are good at keeping everything ticking along and also announce special games, giving you time to swap rooms before they start. There is also a dedicated help room but we often find it confusing when they are talking to several people at the same time and trying to sort out multiple problems.
Dino Bingo is not a bad site at all, with plenty to offer both old and new players alike. You will undoubtedly have a good time and their jackpots and prizes are well worth winning. Our only real niggle is that it feels just like all of the other Mandalay Media brands and they just seem to be choosing a random name, adding the word bingo and then launching yet another rehash of the same old thing. Unless they start using their imagination for more than just graphics, we can’t help but feel that the likes of Dino Bingo could soon be extinct!
Dino Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Game Options at Dino Bingo
Dino Bingo runs on the popular Globalcom software platform and is home to both 75 ball and 90 ball bingo, plus a wide range of exciting instant games and slots games. The software has been around for many years and has been constantly tweaked and developed to make it one of the smoothest on the market. Everything works with the minimum of fuss and they have built in plenty of useful options including a range of dauber shapes and colours and a handy auto buy facility, so you don’t have to miss any games when you go to make yourself a cuppa!
In the Dino Bingo rooms you will find an impressive mix of emoticons and an extensive list of time saving acronyms such as GL, WTG, 3TG, 2TG and 1TG, all of which help you avoid the repetitive typing associated with the bingo games. They give you the option alter the size and colour of the typing which is really handy if you any difficulties with your vision, and you can lock down chat if you want to read the rules before they disappear. One really nice features is the ability to use your Loyalty Points to purchase virtual gifts for your bingo buddies or fellow roomies.
It does not matter when you log into Dino Bingo or whether you prefer 75 or 90 ball bingo, you will never be far away from a big money game. If you are looking for really impressive prizes though, make sure you check out the special jackpot games that take place every night at 9pm, because they come complete with thousands of pounds worth of guaranteed jackpots or Dino Bingo Diamonds and Points:
- Monday – Stego’s Stash with a £2,500 prize pot
- Tuesday – Dino Diamond Dash for 500,000 Diamonds
- Wednesday – Diplo Dosh with a £2,500 prize pot
- Thursday – Triceratops Treats for 1 million Dino Points
- Friday – T-Rex Treasure with a £1,000 prize pot
- Saturday – Brachio’s Banker with a £500 prize pot
- Sunday – Jurassic Jewels for 500,000 Diamonds
That’s not all though, because every Friday night at 10pm they host a 90 ball Yabba Dabba Dough game, and as long as you are a funded player you can pick up six cards for free. There is £10,000 up to for grabs including prizes for those unfortunate players that miss out with the dreaded 1tg and 2TG.
From the moment you become a Dino Bingo player, you automatically become part of their loyalty scheme. The way it works is actually quite simple and for every £1 you deposit you will earn 1,000 Dino Points. In addition to this though, you can boost your point tally by referring friends, because for each one that becomes a depositing player, you will earn yourself an extra 10,000 points. You can trade in these points at any time and you will receive £1 in bonus funds for every 1,000 you redeem.
As you build up more points, you will progress through the different loyalty levels. As you reach VIP status, you will benefit from free games, each one giving you the chance to win guaranteed cash jackpot:
- Bronze Members – Win £25 every hour between 7pm and 10pm
- Silver Members – Win £35 every hour between 7.15pm and 10.15pm
- Gold Members – Win £50 every hour between 7.30pm and 10.30pm
- Platinum Members – Win £500 on the 30th of every month at 9pm
The one thing you can never say about the Mandalay Media Group brands is that they are short of promotions. Right from launch, Dino Bingo made sure there was a healthy dose of free bingo games and guaranteed cash jackpots. In addition to this though, they regularly add both weekly and monthly specials into the mix, and it is through these that you can win tangible prizes such as gadgets, items for the home and garden or even thousands of pounds worth of vouchers so you can plan your own dream holiday.
