Blighty Bingo Review

Blighty Bingo was the first Dragonfish bingo site ever to be launched with NO wagering requirements on anything – winnings from the welcome offer and from free spins are paid as cash.  Now this bingo site which celebrates all things British has been given a cool redesign, along with an upgrade to the loyalty scheme which enables players to claim free bingo tickets as well as free spins every single day.

BlightyBingo Screenshoot

When Blighty Bingo was first launched back in 2017, the welcome offer was considered to be pretty radical and upset a lot of players who were expecting to get a conventional bingo bonus and hadn’t read the offer correctly.  The thing to understand is that 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 their daily £250 Street Party bingo game and the next monthly £10K network jackpot game – and anything you win is paid in cash and yours to keep.  Better still, you WILL win something, because as well as having five line prizes, the Street Party game is an everyone-wins game with £95 of the prize pool split between non winning players.

Another innovation that began at Blighty Bingo is that there is no Dragonfish network monthly loyalty scheme and instead they have a 15 level VIP/loyalty scheme based on lifetime wagering. Benefits include daily free spins and free bingo tickets to the daily Kaching room (from level 1, reached after just £1 or lifetime wagers) as well as monthly cashback on losses (from level 5)and free tickets to the £10K (from level 2).

The bingo lobby and rooms at Blighty Bingo 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.  Again, this was pretty radical when the site was first launched but players are now used to it.

Blighty Bingo has many of the same rooms as regular Dragonfish network bingo sites, including the Wonky 75 ball room (elsewhere known as Bounce T) and the massively networked Number 10 75 ball room (elsewhere known as Big Fat 10).  90 ball rooms include Fun’in 90 (aka Chatterbox) and the Blighty 90 room (named after Blighty as it was the first of the no wagering bingo sites, and not accessible to players from Dragonfish sites that give out bingo bonus offers).  Also on site are various Dragonfish daily and weekly jackpot rooms, the Gobsmacked (aka Wow Spintastic) penny bingo room where all prizes are free spins, and the 52 ball bingo game Hit 52.  There’s also a free room (with a game every half hour) which can be accessed without having made a recent deposit.

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 opened several other sites on the same model – and so have a number of other operators.  The bingo rooms seem lively enough but what players really seem to be into is the range of hundreds of slot games coupled with there being no wagering requirements on anything.  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. Joined the sight and won on my first game a lot of people moaning about it being 70 tickets and not money do you really think a company are just going to hand out £70 because you deposited 10 really? Everyone has as much chance of winning as the next and that’s exactly what the game is chance it’s a game of luck not a guarantee that you will win if you don’t like losing money don’t play funny how no one who has won is running the site down only people who have not won says it all really sore losers great site well done blighty bingo

  2. 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.

  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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.
