Fancy Bingo is one of the original Dragonfish sites run by the people behind Costa Bingo and now owned by 888. It used to specialise in penny bingo but when the site received a facelift in early 2017, this came to an end. Now they have the same bingo rooms with tickets mostly priced from 5p and free games for recent depositors as the other sites in the group.
The original theming at Fancy was very loosely based on Alice in Wonderland and centred round a Mad Hatter figure. A character from a children’s book was never going to cut it as the frontman of an online gambling site once the Gambling Commission cracked down on imagery with child appeal, so he had to go. Having lost both its original concept of the “penny wonderland” and almost all of its theming, is there anything special left about Fancy Bingo to attract players?
Quite a lot, actually! For a start, Fancy has had a proper redesign and not a half-hearted one like some of the other sites in the group. It’s one of the very few Dragonfish sites where you are able to see what’s on offer in terms of bingo rooms and slot games before you sign up (at most Dragonfish sites what’s on the home page bears little resememblance to what’s in the lobby). There’s a few discrepancies but they are mostly to do with room names (which are rather less fanciful inside the lobby) , but what may not be too obvious is that all of the rooms are quite widely networked (many with different names at different sites) which means there’s always someone around to play bingo against.
Only the rooms marked Buy In Bonus are playable with bonus; there’s several weekly jackpot games offering the opportunity to win a substantial sum plus a 90 ball room that runs games continuously (at the time of writing this room has a ticket price of 5p and a maximum of 24 cards per player, so there’s scope for the bonus to go a long way).
Another major selling point is the Free Friday £7K. These games all have a prize pool of £1000 and are open to invited players only.
Fancy Bingo also does well with its range of slots (and Slingo and instant win games). There’s over 700 of them and again, you can browse through them without a login. Once you get inside the lobby you will find that many games are not playable with bonus but this won’t be relevant unless you collect a slot bonus in the loyalth shop or via a promo as there’s no slot bonus element in the welcome offer (your spins winnings will be paid in cash).
A perfectly decent Dragonfish bingo site then, with a bigger range of slots than many – but not if you expect to be able to play 75 ball bingo with your welcome bonus.
