‘Life moves pretty fast –’, since, Wink Bingo has already released its mobile apps after much ado. If you’re a fan of this wildly popular bingo purveyor then you can go ahead and get it (we just tried scanning the black and white QR code, which did indeed trigger the free download).
You gotta love Wink. It’s probably the most idiosyncratic, most flirty and saucy bingo hub on the Web today. Full-on pink, and full of attitude, perhaps you’ll either fall in love with it or hate it. We tend to love it.
We appreciate, for one, its benefits. There are many. Here we go:
- 200% cash match on your first deposit
- Spin the Wheel: up to an extra £1,000 free
- One week’s access to Newbies Room (with free bingo)
- £30,000 Dream Jackpot cards as prizes
- ‘Hundreds of £100s’: £100 every hour, every day
- £50 Party Plus Jackpot game for 2p
- Guaranteed Jackpots (£150 and £500) daily
- Risk-Free £1,000 game
- Winky Pennies: games for 1p
- Win a share of £500 on Instant Game of the Week

- Loyalty bonuses
- Fresh £50: games for 2p
- Weekly promotions like ‘Stash the Cash’
- Team/tournament Bingo
- Big progressive jackpots for 75- and 90-ball games
We wanted to give that long list to make it all-too-self-evident that Wink Bingo is dead serious about keeping players happy — despite its rosy, light-hearted visual appeal. When it comes to player retention, we gather that Wink does well.
You can see how many specials, bonuses and surprises their teams have dreamt up for you. There is literally a bingo bash happening every day and night, like the events-calendar for a big city like London.
Winking on the Run
As for the new hotly-anticipated Android and iPhone apps themselves, we’re very impressed and we congratulate Wink Bingo and its supplier, Dragonfish.
Considering the fact that Bingo sites are proving relatively slower to market than the online casino waves, we are thankful that game companies like Dragonfish and the Joy of Bingo network are careful to release high-quality products.
Wink’s apps join ranks with other top Bingo sites offering mobile services for their customers, sites such as RedBus Mobile, Bingo Street’s mobile games and other mainstays like mFortune (which makes its own gaming software).
The Technology Behind Mobile Bingo
Although most players will not care a whit about the apps’ technical features, the industry itself can remain impressed that Dragonfish has chosen wisely to adopt HMTL5 technology in the near term. This will help take this massively loved pastime into the latest generation of mobile gaming, independent of both plugins and apps.
Bingo gamers who fancy staking a little real cash while commuting will benefit from the way — for whatever reasons — the Bingo establishment has hung back slightly and is able to hop the best mobile wave.
The best wave to catch is HTML5, which puts the games squarely inside a phone or tablet’s Web browser, thus simplifying things for players considerably. Wink Bingo Mobile is riding that wave, and, for now it has some brilliant apps available.
