Katie’s Bingo UK has carved out a real niche for itself through its very friendly site and community. One of the best features is that Katie herself welcomes you and is your guide throughout the site, so you always feel right at home. You can play 28 games in 13 different Dragonfish bingo rooms, plus a huge selection of slots by leading producers like NetEnt and Eyecon.
If you are a new player at Katie’s Bingo UK, you get a Welcome Bonus that gives you a 300% match on your first deposit, up to the value of £30. This means that if you deposit £10, you will begin playing with £40. In addition, you also collect 10 bonus spins on the Eyecon slot game Fluffy Too.
The signup offer comes with a 4x wagering requirement, so if you claim the full £30 bingo bonus, you need to spend £120 on bingo tickets before you can cash out any of your bonus winnings.
UK and Gibraltar
Your bonus spins on Fluffy Too are valid for 7 days, with winnings capped at £5 and subject to a 80x playthrough (different games contribute at different rates — see the T&Cs for the full list). The most that you can transfer to your real money account as a result of casino bonus winnings is £400.
Overall, this is a fairly standard sort of introductory bonus, although it is made a little more appealing by the addition of slot game bonus spins, as you have the chance to explore more of the site’s features before you need to make too much of a financial commitment.

As soon as you sign up for an account, you become a member of the Katie’s Crew loyalty scheme. There are 4 levels of membership that you can progress through (Rookie, Pro, Master and Champion), and along the way you pick up rewards like free bingo games, monthly deposit bonuses and extra spins. Your membership level is determined by the size of the deposits you make each month.
Katie’s Bingo players can also take part in great daily promotions and special games, like Katie’s Cocktail Party and Katie’s Fluffy 50, and you also get access to the monthly Big £10K Game.
You can play games in 13 different bingo rooms, such as Bingo Buddies, High 5 and Chatterbox, and these features both 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games, all powered by Dragonfish, with tickets available at a range of prices. You can also play a variety of free bingo games (including Daily Doozey where newbies can play for free and win cash prizes) or take part in scheduled jackpot games with guaranteed prizes and for which you can buy your tickets in advance, so you never miss out on the action.
Every day there are special games that you can join as well, like Bingo 52, WOW! and Mystery Jackpots, so you are always spoilt for choice at Katie’s Bingo.
There are more than 500 Katie’s Bingo slots and casino games to choose from, by leading names in the industry like NetEnt, Eyecon, IGT, and 888. These include some of the best-known video and themed slots, like Planet of the Apes, Starburst and Guns N’ Roses, as well as big progressive jackpot slots with huge payouts like Mega Fortune and Fluffy Favourites. If you can’t decide if you prefer bingo or slots games, you can also play Slingo games, which combine the two.
French, European and American roulette games are also available.
There are limited payment methods available here for UK players, with a minimum deposit amount of £10. For some players, one of the most convenient methods will be to pay over the phone, which you can do by calling 0800 901 2510 (toll free). In addition, you can use PayPal, EntroPay and PaySafe Card, alongside credit and debit cards. Deposits are credited to your account and available to play with straight away.
The minimum amount you can cash out is £5, and you are required to use the same payment method as you use for deposits. If this isn’t possible, you will receive your funds via cheque. All withdrawal requests are subject to a 48-hour processing period, and cash is then released on the next working day.
Our view is that while being able to use PayPal and pay over the phone are helpful, we think it’s a shame that major e-wallets like Skrill and Neteller are not accepted, and this will no doubt be an inconvenience for many regular players.
Katie’s Bingo manages to create one of the friendliest playing environments of any of the sites we feature here. Katie is your host, and her welcoming, smiling face appears throughout the site, accompanied by a friendly, informal style that always makes you feel as though you belong. This feeling of friendliness extends to the chat hosts as well (especially in the newbies room), where all players are made to feel welcome and one of the team.
Unfortunately, Katie doesn’t appear to have been very active on her social media pages lately. There is a Facebook page (@katiesbingouk), but nothing has been posted here for quite a while, while you need to be a confirmed follower before you can join in on Twitter (@katiesbingo). There are also YouTube and Instagram pages, although these too have been pretty quiet for quite some time.
If you’re an Apple iPhone or iPad user (iOS 8.0+), you can play Katie’s Bingo mobile games via a free app. Search for ‘Katies Bingo & Slot Games’ in the App Store to download and install the app. If you play on an Android smartphone or tablet, or phones on other operating systems, you can play web-based games directly in the browser of your device.
The Katie’s Bingo app features a bright and colourful layout, along with an easy-to-use UI, while the game screens are well laid out and it is always easy to buy tickets and keep up with your progress in the game at any time.
Ultimately, we don’t have any real preference for playing either on the desktop site or the mobile site, so in the end it will probably come down to whatever is more convenient for you at the time.
The friendly atmosphere you encounter here is one of the site’s real stand out features, and with Katie herself as your host, you always feel welcome. The whole vibe of the site contributes to this, and while it is disappointing that Katie is not as engaged on social media as we would like, we nevertheless always enjoy returning to play here.
Of course, the quality of the games also makes a big contribution to the playing experience, and there is something for everyone here, with a range of ticket prices, 90 ball and 75 ball games, along with a great range of specials and progressive jackpot bingo as well.
We rate this amongst our favourite UK online bingo sites, and so our final overall Katie’s Bingo review score is 4½ stars out of 5.
Do you agree that Katie makes this an especially enjoyable place to play, or does having her as your host not really make any difference to you? You can share your thoughts in the comments, or if you can prefer you can write your own Katie’s Bingo review for our readers.
