Sparkling Bingo has made its way into our warning list and is quickly heading for the blacklisted section. This is due to the company’s operations with United Commissions, which is their marketing program. Long story short, they have enacted unfavourable terms on their previous partners, which has resulted in most of their previous contracts being voided. This is always an obvious money grab, and a red flag when it comes to any sort of issues over trustworthiness.
The site itself has been in a slow decline too. Though they are part of the Dragonfish platform their site hasn’t seen much activity or development since it originally launched in 2007. The site suffers from a host of issues, with one of the biggest being lack of players. That one is on them and their bad practices, as there are plenty of better bingo sites out there for players to try.
Besides their refusal to honour agreements with former partners, which is a sure sign that integrity and trustworthiness are out of the window, the site isn’t actually doing all that well with players either.
The major gripe here comes in the form of terms and conditions. We have heard reports that these are used and enforced to deny payments. This is technically well within their rights, it’s just that it often takes the form of small print. Quite a few bingo sites come with similar small print, only it used only ever in extreme cases. Here it seems to be used against all players to deny withdrawals. That’s more than enough to suggest that you should heed our warning and stay away from Sparkling Bingo.
To start with, players have abandoned the site to its own devices. This means that you are unlikely to find much in the way of other players in the bingo rooms. And since bingo is a social game that one stings quite a bit. Obviously, the lack of players has a good reason behind it. This site is in decline in more than one way.
Major issues seem to also raise from bonuses and withdrawals. Basically, any and all casino bonuses for slots are impossible to wager and withdraw. Not to mention the win limits they come with. It’s obvious that terms like these ensure that the bonuses, no matter how big, are there to just bedazzle players, not to actually give them a chance to win. We’ve also heard reports that using similar bonuses in sister sites of this bingo site can be used to deny you withdrawals, or in fact, say you are abusing bonuses.
Let the sparkle of Sparkling Bingo fade away, and head out to our suggested bingo sites instead. Another reason to keep away is the simple fact that the decisions that the site and its management have taken always end up spiralling even further into the depths of rogue actions. There’s going to be even worse support, even worse bonuses, even fewer players, and eventually total abandonment of the site. And it’s not going to get better.

This site has a great retro look, and I loved it from the first time I visited it. You'll spend hours playing games and that is guaranteed with the Dragonfish Software. There are 90, and 75-ball, and Swedish bingo game with progressive jackpots available. Some exclusive promotions are ready for the players, such as Brain Drain game, Bingo opera, Retro nights, but they offer one million jackpot games and that's a real treat. Of course, you could also play slots and other instant games including scratch cards. You could start playing with a 100% welcome bonus up to £150, and a 50% reload bonus up to £50. I think their Loyalty program is really good; it has five levels with great re-deposit bonus options, jackpots, and cash back. If you have any questions there is a great customer support available 24/7.Show more

A nice non USA player bingo site, powered by Dragonfish so your transactions and information are quite secure, Sparkling Bingo has a lot to offer the bingo player. After you join the site you are offered a nice deposit bonus. Just deposit 10 pounds and you'll receive a free 15. With some bingo games at just 5 cents a card, that's a lot of potential bingo wins for you. And if that's not enough of a bankroll to keep you going you have the option of other deposit bonuses, or you can always try your luck at the free games and try to win for free. They offer 90 ball 75 ball and swedish bingo here, and have progressive and coverall jackpots waiting to be won. The selection of rooms is adequate. You can also enjoy playing on the slots, scratch cards, table games, etc... like you can at all Dragonfish sites. If you follow them on twitter or facebook, you will find even better and more plentiful promotions so it's a good idea to LIKE them and get the best deals.

This site is definitely on top of thing when it comes to free bingo! It's offered to all players every day and that can be hard to come by. They've got a whopping £6,000 up for grabs per month. They have some fantastic promotions here. For example their refer-a-friend promotion is pretty sweet. I know a lot of sites offer similar things but I particularly like the way this site does it. They give you £10 free for each friend you refer to play at the site and you can refer as many friends as you want. When it comes to bingo, they have the standard three types: 75, 90 and Swedish. Some sites have less and some have more so I found this to be a sufficient amount of types to offer. They have some really nice coverall and progressive jackpots that you just can't go wrong with. Overall, I was happy with this site.Show more

Like most Dragonfish sites, they offer three types of Bingo to their players. They've got 75, 90 and Swedish bingo. If you head to their â€œGamesâ€ section, you'll find a complete schedule of Coverall and progressive Jackpots that are available daily. Slots, table games, scratch cards and team bingo are offered as well. The free bingo they have here is awesome. They've got freebies day and night, all week long. All players are able to take advantage of this fantastic offer. Both funded and non-funded players are given specific rooms and times for which they can play for hours for more than £200 daily. I really like the Zodiac Bingo that they offer. If you're the type of person who loves to read your horoscope daily, then this will be really fun for you. They also feature a really nice ongoing promotion that takes place each Monday, where you get two hours worth of happy hour bonuses!Show more

Information: Lootva said: This is the site with a great design, so no wonder it was selected for the 2012. Bingo website of the year. They've got really sleek graphics and definitely is one of the best looking sites out there. Everything you should know is right out there in the open, starting with the supported payment options (you can use Neteller, but not PayPal), down to the currencies (Euros, UK Pounds and US Dollars) and countries allowed (nice and long list, US included). I wasn't really impressed with start-up bonuses, as there is no Free No Deposit Bonus, only standard Deposit bonuses, but you should definitely keep an eye on the Promotions tab, as they keep changing the active promotions. More experienced players should check their VIP offering, since they can score some very lucrative bonuses. You will find regular 75-Ball and 90-Ball variants, which are familiar to UK and US players, but also a High5 Bingo, a game that is becoming more and more popular.Show more
