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 Easy Access are playable with bonus, but due to the nature of the welcome offer at Fancy Bingo this won’t be relevant for new players; any winnings from the welcome offer tickets, which can only be used in the special free ticket rooms, are paid in cash. You might collect a bingo bonus later on though, in the Tea Party daily bonus game or by redeeming loyalty points, so it is worth knowing.
The Bingo Academy newbie room also pays out in cash, and so do the five free £1000 games that run on Friday evenings for players who deposited in the past 7 days – two major selling points right there!
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 again, this won’t be relevant unless you collect a slot bonus in the loyalth shop or via a promo.
A perfectly decent Dragonfish bingo site then, with a bigger range of slots than many – but only if you prefer free ticket offers to bonus offers.
Free Bingo Academy room for newbies for 24 hours following registration. Get access to Tea Party – a daily bonus game – for 6 days after making any deposit. 120 free bingo tickets on 1st deposit – 30 for each of 4 different rooms (max 6 tickets per game, all games have a prize pool of £10 cash). 60 free bingo tickets on 2nd deposit and 30 free bingo tickets on 3rd deposit
