Wink Bingo has been around since February 2008, and over the years they have gone through many changes, the majority of which have improved the site. They are powered by the 888Holdings/Globalcom software that we see all too often, but are actually a standalone site. This gives them a lot more freedom to offer something a little different, whilst at the same time benefiting from software that has been honed to perfection across a number of well established brands.
Wink Bingo is targeting predominantly female players, and even though they have now removed the male strippers from their homepage, it is awash with pink and lilac. The page is nicely designed though, with a large animated banner advertising their latest promotions and a small graphic showing your cash balance, bonus balance and Loyalty Points total. Below this is a small lobby, complete with all of the important details you need and links that will take you directly to the rooms, bypassing the need to enter the main lobby.
The other advantage of being a standalone site, is that you don’t get any of those annoying duplicate account problems that we always seem to encounter when registering on networked sites. You will be welcomed with a higher then average bonus on your first deposit, plus if you deposit £10 or more, you get the chance to ‘Spin the Wheel’. The wheel is made up of different segments, and each one has a different value. Every player is guaranteed to be a winner, with prize ranging between £15 and £1,000 worth of bonus money.
The lobby is packed full of options, with tabs for Free & Fun, 90 Ball, 75 Ball, Prebuys, Instants, Progressives and VIP. Each tab leads to a range of different rooms to suit all budgets, with cards starting at just 5p each. The graphics for each room display it’s name, the number of players in there, the CM on duty, the cost of the cards, and how long until the next game starts. The only extra information that we would like to see, is the value of the next jackpot, as this is something most of us would consider before choosing which room to play in.
The rooms themselves are exactly the same as all of the other 88Holdings/Globalcom powered sites, but this is not bad thing as everything is nicely laid out and functional. There is a large area of the screen dedicated to showing the cards you have purchased, and you can click on each one to select them, or auto select in blocks of twelve to save time. The right hand side of the screen is where you can enjoy a chat with fellow roomies, or play a selection of mini games, so you will never be short of things to do.
Wink Bingo is home to some fantastic promotions, with a schedule packed full of bingo money games, including special guaranteed jackpot games, five nights a week. There is free bingo, penny bingo, bargain bingo and team bingo, all backed up with an impressive loyalty scheme which sees you unlock extra benefits as you progress through the different levels. On top of this though, you will always find them adding monthly specials to the mix, where you can win better prizes such as cars and holidays.
Wink Bingo is a fantastic online bingo sites and they are continually developing and improving. Being part of the Joy of Bingo network allows them to take part in some massive monthly promotions that usually benefit both players, and a nominated charity. The site was already great, but they have also now added a mobile option, so you can play your favourite games via your smart phone or tablet regardless of where you are as long as you have a 3g, 4g or wi-fi connection. If you are looking for a place to call your bingo home, you could do a lot worse then Wink Bingo.
Wink Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Game Options at Wink Bingo
Wink Bingo is powered by the 888/Globalcom software and is home to 75 ball bingo, 90 ball bingo and a wide range of instant games. The software is one of the slickest around and has been tweaked many times over the years to make sure everything works perfectly. There are plenty of options built in, including the ability to change the shape and colour of your dauber to make things a bit more interesting. There is an auto buy feature so you can purchase cards automatically if you have to step away from the computer for any reason.
In the chat room there are plenty of emoticons and all of the usual acronyms such as GL, WTG, 3TG, 2TG and 1TG, all of which save you having to keep on typing them over and over again. You can also change the size and colour of your font to make you stand out from the crowd. One of the nicest features though, is the ability to purchase virtual gifts with your Loyalty Points, that you can then send to anyone else in the room.
Wink Bingo is packed full of guaranteed jackpots, and you don’t even need to be online to be in with a chance of winning one of them. Click on the ‘Big Jackpots’ tab in the lobby, and you can pre-purchase cards for all of their big weekly games.
Additionally the site may host a special game and this usually will be under a dedicated tab added to the main lobby.
Wink Bingo used to home to some of the best promotions that we had seen. In addition to the guaranteed jackpots and progressive jackpots, their regular line-up includes free bingo, penny bingo, team bingo and a brilliant loyalty scheme. Where once the site had an abundance of unique and interesting promotions, since 888 acquired the company who originally ran the Joy of Bingo network, this is no longer the case.
