Yay Bingo Review

Seen people sitting on their phones or computers and shouting ‘Yay!’? They’ve probably been playing Yay Bingo. This brand new online casino is a bit of an assault on the senses, with high-powered background music, bright colours and graphics as well as some pretty clashing themes and tones, certain to keep you awake after a long day at work. With a short sign-up process, no wagering requirements and over 300 slots on offer, this website couldn’t be easier to start playing and enjoying. It does exactly what it says on the tin with little frill or fuss, letting you enjoy some fun bingo halls or slots, with little red tape or terms and conditions that will bog you down.

In addition to the many bingo rooms and slots available on Yay Bingo, there’s also some pretty impressive sign-up bonuses, daily and monthly promotions for users and a very generous VIP programme. Whether you’re playing from your phone or from your desktop, they’re sure to make you shout ‘Yay!’. This may not be the most sophisticated gaming site on offer, but it is straightforward and guarantees fun for its users, no matter what level of experience or skill you have.

The company is a subsidiary of gaming-giant 888 so you’re sure to get a good gaming experience and level of service and regulation at Yay Bingo, in addition to regulation by both the Britain Gambling Association and Gibraltar Gambling Licensing to give you some peace of mind when depositing money and playing online.

Games and software

If you love slots and bingo then you have come to the right place. Bingo-wise, there are over 50 types of 75-ball and 90-ball bingo halls respectively, developed to a high standard by Dragonfish, which is a name that should be very familiar if you are a bingo aficionado. There are some generic bingo halls which you can play and enjoy throughout the week, in addition to a wide range of day-specific options, like £1K Monday where each player gets the chance on Monday evenings to win a share of the jackpot. Some options guarantee you a share of the jackpot each day, which is really comforting when you want to up your weekly winnings!

If you get tired of the bingo halls and want to try out something else, then there are over 300 slots on offer which range from classic slots to video options and progressive slots. Some of our favourites were Genie Jackpots Instant, Starburst, Shaman’s Dream, Berry Burst and Wild Saloon. All of these slots have been developed to a brilliantly high standard by some of the industry’s big names, like NetEnt, Thunderkick and NextGen Gaming.

None of the games have any wagering requirements, which means your winnings are yours and it makes online casinos and the payout process considerably easier to understand if you’re a beginner.

Unfortunately, there currently are no table games on offer like Blackjack or Poker, but this could be something to do with the fact that the website is quite new, so maybe try checking back later to see if the developers have added these to the options currently available on Yay Bingo.

Live casino

The clue to this section is probably in the name, being primarily a bingo website with a smattering of slots options, there currently is no live casino option offered on the site. This is annoying for those of you who love to dabble with both bingo halls and live casino options, but is good for the straight slots and bingo lovers who prefer a more specialised website.

User interface

When we started playing Yay Bingo, it did feel at times that the theme and layout of the website was a bit of an assault on the senses. You may even need to turn down the brightness on your screen because of the wide array of popping colours the creators have used in its design. However, that being said, it definitely keeps you engaged and awake while playing!

Similar to a lot of 888 subsidiaries, Yay Bingo is well-developed and user-friendly, with helpful menu options which makes the site very easy to navigate.

The website is highly functional, and was responsive no matter what platform we were playing from. The registration process is quick and games are unlocked immediately, with helpful filter options should you want to narrow the results you get.

Mobile casino

Although Yay Casino doesn’t currently offer an application that is available to download from the App store, you can enjoy their mobile version of the website which is honestly just as good as the desktop version. The same slots and bingo halls are available on both, so you won’t miss out if you need to take your Yay Bingo on the go.

Gamification

Yay Bingo has a 15-level Yay Rewards Programme, in addition to daily and monthly promotions for both normal and VIP users.  If you’re a new player, you seem to catch the biggest net of promotions which are either emailed or texted to you daily, so keep an eye out.

Banking

Yay Bingo is pretty standard in terms of payment options on offer, which is impressive for a new casino.

You can make deposits online on your account using the following payment methods:

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Electron
  • Switch
  • Maestro
  • Paypal
  • Neteller
  • Entropay
  • Paysafecard
  • Wire transfer.

All deposits should appear in your account ready to use within 24 hours but most customers said it appeared instantly.

The withdrawal process is slightly slower and the options available are a little more limited. You can use:

  • A credit or debit card
  • A wire transfer
  • Paypal account
  • NETeller account

Customer support

Yay Bingo offers a relatively standard, good level of customer support options but unfortunately none of them are available 24 hours a day, so you may be left waiting a few hours before someone from the company comes online and answers your query or resolves your complaint.

The customer support options on offer at Yay Bingo are as follows:

  • FAQs which can be found here. We were really impressed by Yay Bingo’s FAQ section, it feels like they have covered every question you could possibly have about a bingo site! Make sure to double check this section well if you have any questions or issues while on the site, you’ll probably find your answer instantly here.
  • Telephone: 0808 238 9814 (this number is toll-free but is only available from within the UK, no EU or international number is provided on the website).
  • Email Form Submission here, where they advertise a 48 hour response time.

We have given Yay Bingo a 3.5/5 rating because there are no customer service options available 24/7. That being said, the FAQ section is great and should probably iron out any issues you have without having to contact the customer support team.  If you’re not satisfied with the answer or level of service the customer support team give, there’s also a complaints process should you need it.

OUR VERDICT

Yay Bingo is a fun, straightforward website which you’ll no doubt enjoy but you also have a chance for some pretty substantial winnings. It’s definitely not the most sophisticated online casino out there, but if you’re looking for a good choice of games and low wagering requirements, then this is a good fit for you. There’s a nice selection of 75-ball and 90-ball bingo halls, in addition to over 300 slots. To be honest, from a basic website, what more could you want?
