Rewind Bingo is powered by Dragonfish and is a sister site to Costa Bingo and a dozen other sites. Their main selling point is the five £1000 bingo games that play every Friday for the week’s depositors.
The theme of Rewind Bingo is the 1980s and these days that’s just arcade style graphics in rather lurid colours. The theming used to be much more ambitious; it featured a cartoon of an 80s aerobics instructor complete with leotard, legwarmers and head band, and all of the bingo rooms had 80s inspired names (now, they’re called things like “90 Ball Varied”). Players absolutely loved all that and back in 2016 and 2017 Rewind Bingo was one of the most popular bingo sites we featured.
Other things that players really liked were the £5 no deposit bonus offer it used to have, the super generous welcome offer and the “Nineteen Eighty Free” free bingo room but unfortunately all of this is long gone. The aerobics instructor was removed in the purge of cartoon characters from online bingo sites that took place in 2017, and the offers and freebies were phased out in the wake of changes to taxation and advertising regulations. Not long after that, the entire group of sites was sold to 888, the owners of the Dragonfish software.
The upshot of that is that Ignite no longer really exists as a separate network. Most of the bingo rooms are shared with 888 Ladies and sister sites and some (including the newbie room) are even shared with the main Dragonfish network. Ignite do still have a few exclusive daily and weekly games, the most notable of which is a series of £1000 games on Friday evenings. These used to be free to anyone who’d deposited in the last 6 days, but now you need an invitation (probably forthcoming if you make a deposit?)
The Diamonds loyalty scheme used to be exclusive to Ignite but is now available at 888 Ladies, Wink Bingo and elsewhere. The advantage of this is that you can collect Diamonds at one site and redeem at another (which could be handy if you don’t want to mix different types of bonus).
Rewind Bingo also offers more than 300 slot games – a far bigger and more up to date selection than you would think from looking at the home page.
Rewind is still a perfectly decent Dragonfish bingo site and in Autumn 2021 it went back to having a bingo bonus welcome offer (replacing the unpopular free tickets offer that had been running for the best part of 3 years) but we can’t help thinking that there’s a huge amount of wasted potential in the theming – just imagine how great it would be if the 80s aerobics class imagery was restored using photographs of real people instead of cartoons!
