Last update: 1st August 2023
Bingostars is brand new for winter 2022, with bingo rooms by Pragmatic Play (including some Bingostars exclusives) and a proper bingo bonus welcome offer.
You may think the name Bingostars sounds familiar and you’d be right – there was a bingo site called Bingostars in operation from 2013 to 2020. It was one of the so called “Rocket X” bingo sites that were powered by the now defunct Bede Gaming bingo software and taken over by Leo Vegas in 2020. Other sites in the group such as Pink Casino moved on to the Pragmatic Play bingo software but Bingostars was closed.
The new Bingostars has Pragmatic Play bingo rooms and the logo looks very similar to that of the old site, but it’s a completely different operator – Dazzletag, who operate a number of other sites including Peachy Games and Casushi. It seems that Dazzletag bought the name but otherwise it’s a brand new site.
Dazzletag have years of experience in online bingo with their Bingocams site, which ran on proprietary software allowing players to use webcams to film their winning moments. A revolutionary idea at the time, it was overtaken by the simple fact that most people these days are playing on their phones, not at a computer with a webcam. Hence the choice of Pragmatic Play for Peachy Games, and now for Bingostars, and the retirement of the proprietary software.
Enough about the history of the site name and the credentials of the operator – what’s the site like?
Many of the bingo rooms are networked which means the prizes are worthwhile. There’s regular 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball rooms plus the Drop Pots 90 ball room, Bingo Blast and daily and weekly jackpot games, but no newbie room. The lobby is tabbed so you can have up to three rooms open at a time and switch between them quickly, and prebuy is available up to 28 days ahead of time.
There’s a major difference to most other Pragmatic Play bingo sites though; most of the bingo rooms have chat and it’s specific to Bingostars. You can see the bios of the 4 chat hosts on the home page and they seem pleasant, chatty and very keen to build a genuine bingo community. Bingostars also have some exclusive bingo rooms that you won’t find at any other Pragmatic Play sites.
Also inside the bingo rooms are minigame versions of some of the most popular slot games by Pragmatic Play and Eyecon, so you can play those games without having to close the bingo lobby. A much bigger selection of more than 1200 slot games is available in the Slots area of the site; they are listed in alphabetical order without categorisation but it’s easy to scroll through the list and add games to Favourites by activating the heart icons on the game tiles. The home page also shows your most recently played games (handy if you tried a new game and forgot to add it to Favourites) as well as Favourites and a selection of around 50 of the most popular games.
The other areas of the site include Jackpots (where you’ll find Mega Moolah, WOWPots, Divine Fortune, Mega Fortune, Eyecon jackpot slots and several others), Live Casino (with roulette, blackjack, baccarat and game shows from Evolution and Pragmatic Play) and Scratch (which contains video bingo and crash games as well as scratchcards).
Bingostars promise to run exclusive promotions including prize draws and giveaways as well as deposit offers and this, plus the hosted chat and the bingo bonus welcome offer, makes it the most exciting new bingo site to launch for quite some time. Enjoy!
Dazzletag’s Responsible Gaming page is well laid out and there are direct links to the basic safer gambling tools under the “Play Safe” initiative (which is prominently linked from the top of the page as well as the footer). Session limits and daily wagering/loss limits can also be set, by contacting customer services.
