Blighty Bingo is a Dragonfish bingo site with a difference – or rather, a number of differences, and pretty radical they are too. There are NO wagering requirements and winnings from the welcome offer and from free spins are paid as cash.

Because there are no wagering requirements, there are also NO BONUSES in the usual sense of the word (and no “Bonus Policy” section in the terms and conditions).  Instead, they give out free bingo tickets to specific games – their exclusive daily £250 jackpot game and the next monthly £10K network jackpot game.

There is no Dragonfish network monthly loyalty scheme and instead Blighty has a 15 level VIP/loyalty scheme based on lifetime wagering; benefits include daily free spins as well as the usual monthly cashback on losses and free tickets to the network £10K monthly game.

The bingo lobby and rooms are “tablet style” which means that they do not require Adobe Flash to work – so this site is immune to the technical issues caused by browsers such as Chrome removing support for Flash.

Blighty Bingo was the first site on the new Dragonfish Real Bingo Network.  It appears that this has some but not all of the regular network rooms and some new rooms.   The rooms currently on offer are two 75 ball rooms which we understand to be those known elsewhere as Bounce T and Big Fat 10, an exclusive 90 ball room, an exclusive 75 ball daily jackpot and Gobsmacked which is the room known elsewhere as Spintastic.  As more bingo sites join the network, the number of players and rooms should increase.

There is a free room (with a game every half hour) which can be accessed without having made a recent deposit.

Bonuses and wagering requirements as we have previously understood them face regulatory and taxation issues in 2017 which mean the unconventional arrangements at Blighty Bingo are very likely to be a sign of things to come at other sites too.

As far as the players are concerned, Blighty Bingo is definitely the Marmite of bingo sites.  The operators say that players love the lack of wagering requirements and the site is so successful that they have migrated two of their other Dragonfish sites Zinger Bingo and Hunky Bingo on to the same arrangement.  We also know of at least one other operator planning to open a bingo site on the new network.  On the other hand, of all the bingo sites we have ever written about Blighty Bingo is probably the most complained about – but almost all the complaints really boil down to one thing, players expecting the usual sort of bingo bonus welcome offer and getting upset about receiving free bingo tickets instead.

  1. This is the worst one I have ever used. It needs to be investigated. They say deposit 10, play with 80 on the site I joined from, and also promised 10 free spins. The free spins didn’t happen, the £70 became £60 bingo tickets. I went into bingo, to try to use the tickets, but when I purchased £1 of bingo tickets, it came out of my £10. I then went, in despair, to the slots with £9 of the £10 I deposited, and on 50p bets, didn’t register a single win, in any of the 18 spins. This is the worst place to gamble that I have ever come across, and I am addicted.

    1. Although Pixie Bingo is on the same (Dragonfish) network and therefore has many of the same bingo rooms it is in fact owned by a different operator.

  2. I joined this site and reading on it you have no chance of winning out of 70 quids worth of free tickets. Most unhelpful cms and won’t recommend to anyone worst site out there. Also agree with false advertising and very misleading

  3. I joined this site and reading on it you have no chance of winning out of 70 quids worth of free tickets. Most unhelpful cms and won’t recommend to anyone worst site out there. Also agree with false advertising and very misleading as says join now get 70 free no mention that it’s 70 of free tickets

    1. Sorry you were not happy with the site. Deposit £10, CLAIM £70 OF BINGO TICKETS & 10 FREE SPINS! is how the offer is presented on the Blighty site and there is also a detailed explanation in our review of what the offer is.

  4. This site is false advertising you dont get a bonus i joined on the 1st feb and dont get the free tickets until the 15th there is no free bonus there is no players on this site and the service is disgusting. The help room cannot be found it is a disgrace and all affiliates should stop promoting this site just to line there pockets

  5. I did receive the bonus when I joined blighty bingo, using promo code BLIGHTY. I enjoy playing the vast variety of games on this site, such as, fluffy favourites and starburst. The free Bingo games are a way of winning some free money.No wagering is a big plus for me.Five star.

  6. I also didn’t receive my deposit bonus and only one bingo game open. Why no chat or somewhere to complain? Not happy at all. If this is a new site it needs sorting

    The rating wouldn’t change to one star which I wanted

  7. Utter crap. Opened new account didn’t get the 300% bonus or the 10 free spins. Emailed them through their contact us section still no reply even though they state they will respond within 4 hours. Called their number this morning told they are open between 09.00 hrs am and 01.00 hrs am. Again another lie as they state 24 hour customer support. I am now closing my account and wanting my money back. I am also reporting them to the gambling commission for their lies. Be very wary signing with these people. I cannot even access my account as when I type in Blighty bingo the registration page opens but there is no login section. Will call again after 9.00 am see if they answer. Though I have my doubts. Do not register with these people.

    1. Here’s what it says in the offer terms and conditions:

      You must make a real cash deposit of £10+ using Promo Code: BLIGHTY to qualify for your Welcome Bonus. Max. Free Spins 10. Max Bingo Tickets Value £30.
      30 tickets (worth £30) will be credited to the next Guaranteed Win game – either on the 1st or 15th of the month.
      Players using code BLIGHTY will have the tickets credited the following day if the code is used on Sunday to Thursday.
      Players using the code BLIGHTY on Friday or Saturday will have the tickets credited on the following Monday.

      …so assuming that you made your deposit yesterday, the tickets should be credited today.
