Launched in 2015, Spy Bingo operates on the Dragonfish platform with the promise of huge bonuses, 24/7 online bingo rooms, free bingo, a vast selection of slots and games plus daily jackpots and progressive jackpot games. That’s quite the offering, so we wanted to put them to the test to see if they are following through and processing withdrawals in a timely manner.
Our exclusive ‘From the Players for the Players’ experiment involves sending in one of our highly-experienced reviewers with £150, a generous sum to test the deposit and withdrawal process, the games and more besides. We sent in bingosleuth, an avid 007 fan to go undercover to report back on her findings. Was it mission possible or mission impossible? Find out here as we reveal everything there is to know about Spy Bingo!
- Tester of the day: bingosleuth
- Registration date: Friday 26th November
- Deposit date, amount and payment method: 26th November, £150 via Visa Debit
- Withdrawal request date: November 26th, withdrawal request of £75.41p via Visa Debit
- Withdrawal received date: On Tuesday 30th November, the withdrawal of £75.41p was processed via Visa Debit.
New to Spy Bingo, our reviewer, bingosleuth, completed the registration form. Sign-up requires the basics such as name, date of birth, address, mobile number and occupation.
Mobile phone verification is required to complete the registration process. A 4-digit code was sent to the mobile phone number supplied to verify our tester.
Before bingosleuth could slip into the bingo rooms, she hit the cashier to make a deposit. As a new player, free bingo games are available with no deposit, but as this was part of our From the Players for the Players experiment, the tester skipped ahead to fund her account and play with cash.
On Friday 26th November, a deposit of £150 was made via Visa Debit. Other funding options included PayPal, but this requires additional verification via the PayPal website. The LBB reviewer deemed Visa Debit as a faster deposit method on this occasion.
At the time of the deposit, bingosleuth ticked the box to decline all bonuses, even though bingo bonuses carry a low 4x turn over, our reviewer wanted to avoid wagering requirements entirely.
Spy Bingo have designed the website to be easy to navigate with plenty of fun opportunities for any level of bet, you can see that by the numerous categories and freebies. The lobby is packed with the latest Dragonfish portfolio with details on available jackpots.
Triple chance games are the most popular especially when it comes to the 90’s Extreme room, where the progressive jackpot climbs until some lucky devil scoops the lot! The rules are simple; buy your tickets and watch those numbers come out. If you call house within the stated ball count, you win the additional pot of cash. At the time of our reviewers visit, the bingo jackpot was more than £1,500 with a ball count of 44. Every new game would push that ball out by 1 number: 45 then 46 and so-on.
Bingo games come in different shapes and sizes at Spy Bingo, with 90-ball, 75-ball (coverall) as well as bingo roulette and card-based bingo.
Free bingo rooms were popular with £5 in bingo bonuses up for grabs in each game. Match the pattern to win every 6-minutes (or-so). Side games are available in all rooms with a handful of titles offered by both Eyecon and Wizard Games (formerly PariPlay).
Requesting a Withdrawal
On Friday 26th November, bingosleuth decided it was time to withdraw her remaining balance of £75.41. The withdrawal process requires players to head to the ‘deposit’ option in the cashier before being navigated to the cash-out screen. New players may struggle to see what’s what, but it’s just a quick tap of the purple tab and that action will bring up a whole new menu where the withdrawal option is housed.
Once the withdrawal of £75.41 was requested, our reviewer was informed it could take up to 4-7 working days to complete. On Tuesday November 30th, the withdrawal was complete, and despite the email suggesting it would take another 4-7 business days, the funds were already in bingosleuth’s account, taking just 2 business days in total.
How Does Spy Bingo Stack Up?
Our tester was advised that the debit withdrawal could take 4-7 business days to process, but she received the funds within 2 business days. Considering the selected Visa Debit option, this was a speedy payment. It’s also worth noting that the cashout was requested on a Friday.
There’s no denying Spy Bingo offers a vibrant and exciting range of bingo rooms and games and there’s the ability to win big – if your luck is in. Our tester of the day noted the bingo rooms were quiet, but this could be due to the fact that she was playing at an off-peak time. Overall, this test ended with positive results to report.
This information concludes this extensive test as part of the project From the Players, For the Players. If you are a member of Spy Bingo or consider making a deposit, we hope this report provided some useful information.

A helpful report, at least for me. In general, the process was running smoothly that's what I prefer.
