*Oink Bingo has now closed, and the brand no longer offers Bingo on their site. This review will be left for historical purposes, and will not be updated.*
Oink Bingo was first released in 2016. It was introduced to the world with an image of a smiling and waving pig wearing an “I Love Bacon” shirt. It’s cute, on the surface, but essentially that pig was a vicious cannibal who enjoyed eating his own kind and bragging about it via branded merchandise.
These days, the Oink Bingo site seems a little less swine-orientated. There are barely any pigs in sight (maybe the mascot ate them all) and the colour scheme is more “comic blue” than “piggy pink”.
I’ve already spent too long talking about murderous pigs, and there’s clearly more to this Broadway Gaming site than that. So, let’s get into it.
Oink Bingo is a bingo and slot site, and its welcome bonus represents this. When you first join and deposit at least £10, you’ll get a 100% boost in bingo credits and a 100% boost in gaming credits, along with 20 free spins. It’s a little bit of everything, and in combination with the low barrier to entry, it’s perfect for casual players.
There are some downsides though.
First, the most you can collect is £50, so while that should cover the needs of most players, it leaves a little to be desired for the high rollers of the world. Also, the free spin winnings are capped at just £5 and the gaming bonus has a massive wagering requirement of 35x.
The bonus wagering requirement is low though, at just 2x, and it looks like the bonus is available to everyone, regardless of the deposit method they use. That might not sound like a big deal, but I’m seeing a lot of exclusions for players who use web wallets, and as someone who mainly uses PayPal to play bingo and slots, it’s very frustrating. Thankfully, Oink Bingo hasn’t jumped on that bandwagon.
Oink Bingo is owned by the same parent company as Wink Bingo and Wink Slots, which is probably why some of the promotional images seem to have been pulled straight from that comic-book-themed website. The bonuses themselves are also very similar, but we’re talking about a website that I gave the full 5 out of 5 stars, so that’s not a bad thing.
One of the standout promotions is the Big £10,000, where you can play bingo for a chance to scoop a 5-figure prize. Oink Bingo has the full support of a massive brand and some incredible software behind it, so it definitely doesn’t disappoint when it comes to promotions.
Games and Software
Oink Bingo has a number of bingo games, the majority of which are 90 and 75-ball variants. There is an active and vibrant community behind all of these games and you’ll also find daily jackpots, cool themes, happy hour games, and more. If you’re new to the site and keeping a tight rein on your budget, you can try your hand at some free games. They have real money prizes and are fun to play.
Between games of bingo, you can spin a few slots. The slot selection is a little less unique and exciting, but it contains all of the usual suspects from developers like NetEnt and Big Time Gaming, so it’s far from dull. It’s definitely not one of those sites that try to do everything on their own (as with Jammy Monkey), but if you’re happy with the classics then you’ll be content with this lot.
All of the site’s games are mobile-friendly and arguably look and feel better than they do on desktop. You can find the Oink Bingo apps in the respective app stores, as well as on the Oink Bingo website.
Oink Bingo has some impressive customer support, but it’s not perfect. I have messaged the parent company a couple of times in the past and haven’t always had a fast or helpful response. It’s largely because all messages are routed to the same place, and that can cause confusion. When you click the “Send Email” button, you’ll notice that it goes to BingoSupport.com, which is used for many other sites.
So, how do they know which casino you have an issue with? Well, they don’t, unless you tell them, and even if you do, there’s still a high chance they’ll reply asking for more information.
There is a live chat feature, and it’s usually a faster way to get a response, but it is not available to non-members.
Verdict: Oink Bingo Review
Oink Bingo is a decent site with a big welcome bonus, a good variety of payment options, and some fantastic games. But it’s also very generic and doesn’t really try to do anything new. It looks and feels like a lot of other sites owned by this brand and created using Dragonfish. That’s not necessarily a terrible thing, and that’s why I gave it 4/5 stars, but it falls short of full marks as it’s just not distinctive enough.
It’s certainly worth a shot though, and if you have very little experience with Broadway Gaming Group, Dragonfish, or the flurry of 888 bingo sites that are now owned by this brand, it may even feel original.

Oink Bingo FAQ
Can I Play Oink Bingo on Mobile?
Yes, it has an app for both Android and iOS. It actually works a lot better than the desktop version. Most of the above review was conducted on desktop, but I did check the app on both platforms.
What Are the Most Popular Games on Oink Bingo?
Oink Bingo includes a number of popular online casino games, including some of the biggest hits in the UK. These games include Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest, and Bonanza. Unsurprisingly, these are the most popular games that the site has to offer.
Do I Need to Chat in the Bingo Rooms?
You will be asked to create a username and you can chat to the other members if you want, but you don’t have to. Personally, I am as anti-social as they come, so I tend to ignore all chat rooms and just keep to myself.
Can I Play Bingo for Free at Oink Bingo?
Yes, there are a few different bingo games that can be played for free at Oink Bingo. These games are a great way to practice your skills and enjoy chatting with other members. You can also win some real cash, although the prizes are usually much smaller than with real money games.
