Tasty Bingo Review
Tasty Bingo, sounds yummy to us, but is this online bingo site a tempting full three course banquet or a throwaway fast food fix?
Owned and operated by 888 Holdings, Tasty Bingo is an online bingo that is not considered part of the bigger network that includes the likes of Bingo Ballroom and Sugar Bingo. Instead, the website operates independently and rather than pooling players from the network, the bingo rooms are contested by members of Tasty Bingo only, which gives them a better chance of claiming the jackpot.
The site itself is built using the familiar Dragonfish software, also used by other bingo sites run by 888 Holdings and offers a similar line up of games to these including variations of 90 and 75 ball bingo, casino games and slots. Whilst those visitors who have played other 888 Holdings sites may not find many surprises, with Tasty Bingo operating independently it does at least mean the games are kept between Tasty Bingo members only.

As is mostly standard nowadays with most online bingo sites, visitors using a desktop computer are welcome to browse Tasty Bingo to see what is on the menu before committing and registering their details, a necessary requirement that takes a few minutes after which they are free to deposit and play. Help is on hand for those who need it with Live Help, telephone support and email contact available, there are also Live Chat moderators on hand in most rooms to help answer any queries, they also happen to be a great source of entertainment and often hold additional chat games. There is also a VIP option for committed members, called the Gem Club with exclusive offers and extra bonuses which is worth registering with if you plan on playing Tasty Bingo in the long term.
Aesthetically Tasty Bingo looks scrumptious with a nicely designed, colourful theme, which features a suitably tasty logo complete with a chocolate dipped strawberry. The homepage has a promotion slide towards the top of the page, underneath which are links to join, the welcome bonus, mobile play and a couple of other rotating bingo offers.
Compared to other bingo site in the 888 Holdings Network, Tasty Bingo may not be teeming with anything particularly new, the games and promotions having mostly been done elsewhere. However, being independent is a definite bonus and there are one or two unexpected surprises such as additional promotions, the Gem Club and the free tab that are certainly a plus. All wrapped in a nicely designed theme that looks almost good enough to eat Tasty Bingo had a lot going for it and will more than help fill the stomach of any hungry online bingo player.
Mobile & Tablet Gaming
Mobile players can play Tasty Bingo on the go either by heading directly to the normal website address or downloading and installing the Tasty Bingo app from the main website, which works on both Android and Apple operating systems.
The main difference between the two being that the app allows for quicker access and has many games pre-installed whereas playing the mobile site requires each game to be downloaded and installed as and when required.

Both versions of the mobile site feature an optimised layout making the rooms easier to play on the smaller screen, featuring similar branding and all the same games and promotions as the desktop website. The Dragonfish software ensures that the games load quickly, usually taking around 10 seconds with a decent connection and run glitch free with no noticeable slow down or bugs.
Playing Tasty Bingo on a mobile or tablet is a seamless transition from the desktop site and offers a very similar gaming experience, allowing members to take part in the games anywhere with a reasonable internet connection.
Tasty Bingo Social Media Pages
Tasty Bingo on social media is limited to a Facebook page, which has just over 5,000 followers at the time of writing.
The page itself is nicely branded to match the design of the main website with posts mainly consisting of onsite promotions. The main problem with the page is that there has been no new updates since April 2015 and has clearly long been abandoned, reflected in that fact that there is no link to the account from the main website. As things currently are, this is not a page we recommend following as the posts are not relevant to the current site and there is no sign of the update situation changing in the near future.
