Registering & Claiming your welcome bonuses
888 keep it classy with their landing page, which has a sleek red-on-black theme. I was somewhat put off by the cheesy people drinking cocktails, but that didn’t detract from how clear the “Join Now” message is. Clicking through takes you to the registration page for 888, which is made up of sections including personal details and address. You won’t be asked for any payment details during the registration process though you are directed instantly to a page suggesting that you deposit money here.

Unlike some sites, all of the action on 888 bingo takes place in the same tab, which is great if you struggle to keep track of loads of different tabs and windows. The homepage of the site is quite basic but perfectly easy to navigate. It’s an interface which frequent players will recognise because it runs on Cassava (a subsidiary of 888). In some ways this sets it apart from some of the other big names who either use their own software or the slightly more up-market Virtue Fusion. I personally think it’s a shame that 888 haven’t gone a bit further with their own site, because as it has the standardised Cassava model it almost looks cheap.
The lobby shows which games are available, including 90-ball games, 75-ball games, and tabs for instants and jackpots. There is also a tab dedicated to free bingo games. The games open in the same tab, all of which have a quite sickly red/pink background. The ticket pane is on the left-hand side, with the chat interface on the right.The caller voice is the same chirpy voice which is across the platform, with good pace and fun calls.
There is no chat window in the Free for All room, so unless you’ve funded your account you can’t begin to get to know the community on 888. That being said, the chat is friendly and generally quite busy, with a decent level of interaction if not always conversation. The chat hosts keep the games interesting and offer a variety of chat contests as well.
What can you play?
There’s plenty of free bingo to be had at 888. Start at the bottom in Free for All and then work your way up as you deposit more!
There are plenty of slots at 888 Bingo if you want a break from the bingo games, though none are playable without having funded your account. Along with those there are a range of free games depending on your depositor level, which all leads you into whether or not to deposit at 888. If you do choose to then they offer £25 free for a deposit of £10. Not bad!

Pros and Cons

Liked their wide range of slots
I didn’t love the colour scheme which didn’t make the site feel special
