Dinky Bingo definitely lives up to its name! Here is a small casino with a small selection of games and small bingo prizes. It also has a neat design. That perfectly nails the British definition of the word ‘dinky’ which by the way I had to go look up as in my head it didn’t have any good connotations. Dinky in British English means ‘attractively small and neat’. But in American English, it means 'disappointingly small.’
Unfortunately, this casino is also true to the American English definition. Unless you enjoy a spot of bingo you will be quite bored here. There’s a decent selection of NetEnt slots and some other fringe providers but that’s just about it.
If you’re a fan of NetEnt slots and want some bingo fun added to the mix then this casino might be the right fit for you. But if you want variety you’ll certainly not find it here.
That’s not to say this casino doesn’t have any redeeming features. It does have a clean design, it is simple to use and depending on the time you play there is also a nice selection of bingo games. But I cannot say I felt the excitement I usually feel at other casinos.
Dinky Bingo offers exclusive 1st deposit bonus if you create your account through Bojoko. Please note that in order to claim the following bonus you need to deposit only £10!
- First deposit: £10 bingo bonus + 50 bonus spins
Just use the bonus code FREE50 when you deposit to get the bonus.
Bonus spins are credited to popular slot (changes often) and are ready to use immediately after deposit.
Deposit balance at Dinky Bingo is available for withdrawal at any time making the bonus forfeitable.
There are two wagering requirements when it comes to this bonus. Any winnings from spins need to be wagered 40x which is slightly above industry standards. But the £10 bingo bonus money and any money won from the bingo tickets need to be wagered 4x on bingo. This does make it a bit tricky as bingo doesn’t have the same mechanics as slots and the 4x does seem quite high.
After I deposited £40 I received an extra £10 Bingo Bonus, 5 tickets on The Big £10,000 and 20 bonus spins. I decided to get the 20 bonus spins out of the way first. Any freebies can be found in the rewards section on the top right of the screen. When clicking to redeem the bonus spins a new window will open in the background if playing on desktop.
The game opened and I played my spins winning 52 points. But this only translated into 50p as per the terms and conditions. I then went to claim the 5 bingo tickets for The Big 10k game. Unfortunately, the game will happen in 7 days time so it will take me a while to see if anything comes out of the free tickets.

This casino is all about bingo and NetEnt games. Other than that, there is not much more happening here. There are other games from smaller providers but I did find myself missing some of the usual slot staples from Play’N Go and Pragmatic Play.
When playing on desktop games will launch in a separate window. I’m not a big fan of this as it makes the whole experience quite messy. Thankfully, this is not the case when playing on mobile.
Bingo games can be a bit of a disappointment if you’re playing at times when there aren’t many players about. This is because most bingo games only have a decent jackpot if there are enough players funding it. At one point I found myself playing for a jackpot of 84p which was quite disappointing.
Apart from that, it is very hard to keep track of your bingo games should you play in different rooms. It will be even harder to have separate games in different rooms going at the same time.
One good thing about Dinky Bingo is the number of free bingo games available. If you’re a casual bingo player these games will definitely go down a treat!
Desktop game information
Desktop game providers
Dinky Bingo is fully mobile-optimised for Android, iOS, and Windows and everything works in the same way as it does on the desktop version. There is not an application available so you don't need to download anything before using their site on mobile is possible. All you need to do is open your browser and log-in into your account.
All games are mobile-friendly so you are able to play both bingos and slots on the move whenever you like. Navigation is user-friendly and using Dinky Bingo on mobile is aimed to be as convenient as possible.
When accessing the casino to play slots from mobile the experience is a definite improvement. I accessed the site using Chrome on an iOS device. I played a few NetEnt games (Aloha and Magic Portals) in portrait mode and noticed the game fits well on the screen. The spin button is conveniently placed in the bottom middle so it’s a comfortable play.
When playing bingo I still prefer the experience on desktop. This is because the chat area is hidden and you cannot chat with fellow players whilst checking what’s going on with your bingo cards. This does take a lot away from the bingo experience which is a real shame as bingo is first and foremost a social game.

At Dinky Bingo, they undertake a process called Know Your Customer (KYC). Upon registration, all new players need to fill in the full registration form, with details like name, phone number, address and so on.
Each player also has to provide the following documents as a part of this KYC procedure:

They do this to ensure that all of players are at least 18 years of age, which means that they’re legally allowed to play online with real money. They do this also to ensure that players are protected from fraudulent use of any payment methods.

The process is very straightforward. I first had to add my card to their system and then went ahead with a £40 deposit. Withdrawals are incredibly easy too. I clicked on the cashier and went to the withdrawal section.
Here I had to agree to forfeit all bonus money and I was ready to cash out. My withdrawal was processed within 3 days and after 2 days the money was in my account.
