Bingo Cove is a member of the Dragonfish / Cassava family of sites. All such sites are licenced and registered on British overseas territory of Gibraltar. This is covered by the UK Gambling Commission, so the site is regulated for United Kingdom based players. The site has a tropical beach holiday theme, featuring a background of a severely out of focus sea shore. This is clearly intentional, but whether this is intended to mimic heat haze or an alcohol induced visual disturbance is unclear. The graphics may be fuzzy, but the bingo is pin-sharp. 90, 75 and High 5 bingo is offered, and these all work really well, with well-hosted lively chat rooms. It all runs very smoothly, as this group’s sites always do. There are comprehensive instructions for players new to the online bingo experience, and more experienced hands will feel at home with the familiar and well designed lay out. Regular players may also be attracted by the wide range of alternative games to play too. There are loads of slot, scratch card and casino style games to choose from.
Sadly, the sandy sea shore scene is not carried throughout the site. The promotions are exactly the same as others in this designer’s stable. How much effort would it take to design a “Sand Castle Surprise” offer, or a “Pina Colada Prize Promotion”? The same applies to the VIP scheme. This has the standard four tiered system running from Rookie to Champ. You need to spend £200 a month to become a Champ, which earns you bigger cash back bonuses and free tickets to the big jackpot game. The prizes and jackpots on offer on this site are certainly worth winning, with lots of lucky five figure jackpot winners proudly displayed on the home page.
It’s always easy to make payments on Dragonfish sites, and Bingo Cove is no exception. All the typical credit and debit options are acceptable, and there are lots of alternative e-payment choices too. You can even ring them up on their 24 hour Freephone number to sort things out if you wish. Wagering requirements are reasonably typical too. You will need to spend 4 x your deposit + bonus before making your first withdrawal. This means that if, for example, you deposit £10 and receive a bonus of £10, you will need to wager £80 (4 x £20) in real funds before making a claim. But remember that this only applies to bingo: far greater multiples apply if you are playing other instant games, and to some introductory offers. Check the site Terms & Conditions to make sure. The minimum withdrawal amount is £20. You can expect your funds to reach your nominated account in around seven days.
Overall, this review of Bingo Cove finds a well organised and easy to navigate site. There are plenty of players, so the potential prizes are good. It all functions very well, although there is little to make this site stand out from its sister sites. It’s not an innovator, but If you like the look and playing experience of Dragonfish, you’ll feel very much at home here.
