About Once Upon a Bingo

Once Upon a Bingo opened in June 2014 and operates on Dragonfish software and on the Dragonfish network. This is a site that has at least one exclusive bingo room for members to take advantage of, over and above all the great games that are offered by Dragonfish sites.

If you are a fan of fairy tales and princess themes, then Once Upon A Bingo is a bingo site just for you. The theme of the site is a photofit of every fairy story ever told. It features a colourful castle, crystal hearts and lots of pink!

The welcome page shows you that there’s plenty of bingo and games on offer, plus jackpots. You even get to have a glimpse at the bingo schedule before you even register.

The blog is where you need to head if you want to win competitions, keep up to date with bingo promotions and more. This site benefits from the personal touch lacking at many a Dragonfish networked site.

Once Upon a Bingo on mobile and tablet

You can play all the magical games Once Upon A Bingo has to offer, via your mobile or tablet. No downloading required. You simply head to the bingo site and log straight in. Access the site via any mobile device on the relevant mobile browser. The games are fully optimised for mobile play.

The layout of the mobile version of the site is simple and easy to understand. The navigation bar is located at the bottom of the screen and splits up the content into four categories – ‘Games’, ‘Bingo’, ‘Extras’ and ‘More’.

Slot games and instant win games are all under the ‘Games’ section, with a huge selection to choose from, such as Fluffy Favourites, Irish Luck, Secret of the Stones, Twin Spin, Wolf Gold, Turning Totems, Beat the Bobbies, ted, Wolf Cub, Rainbow Riches, Butterfly Staxx, 99 Time and Temple of Ausar, plus many more.

All of the 90 and 75 ball bingo games are under the ‘Bingo’ section. The layout of the lobby is perfectly matched with the desktop version of the site and makes using the site on mobile very straightforward, simplistic and easy to use on your mobile.

‘Extras’ include personalised promotions and offers.

Everything else on the site is under the ‘More’ section. Such as, how to play, licensing information, terms and conditions and settings. It is also where you go to log out.

If you wish to make a deposit, withdraw or set a deposit limit, simply tap on the separate ‘Banking’ section at the top of the screen.

Once in a bingo room there are three more options at the bottom of the page to enhance your game time while playing. There is ‘Games’, ‘Chat’ and ‘Cards’. These give you the option to take part in the chat room antics, or to play from a massive selection of slots and instant games. Some will open to play within the room and others will take you away from the room, but there is no way of telling which will do what.

If you have chat or a game open you will see the numbers being called and how many numbers you have left to bingo in a panel at the top of the page so you know to click back to the game when you are getting close.

iOS App Store – There is presently no app available from Apple’s iOS store.

Google Play – There is presently no app available from the Google Play.

Android – Presently the site does not provide an alternative way of download an app to your android phone.

I am loving this site. I literally just signed up and put £10 on and withdraw £200!! I don’t play the bingo so I can’t comment on that, but overall seems like a good site and I will continue to play on there.

Very poor site. Constant tech issues. Logged on and was only on for a few minutes when the site booted me and crashed. Apparently this site is always having issues from other reveiws that i have read.

Unless you want to spend most your evening trying to get the games to load once you do get in… i suggest you save your money and go elsewhere

Tried Once Upon a Bingo and although tried a lot of cards, few cards and middle amount of cards, wins didn’t happen, even when only a few in the room and at no point did I get any deposit bonus apart from the initial one upon joining.
No problem, it’s gambling, but I also like to play slots and have had success on other sites, but for the money I put on, I should have had something worth shouting about, but can honestly say I lost the will to try. Especially when there always seemed to be problems with loading slots and on at least 3 occasions during one week there were technical problems, including trying to get into rooms which said there were a few minutes until the next game, but wouldn’t open up and telling me to go to the lobby. Most annoying when its a 500.00 or 1000.00 jackpot game. There is no immediate help, you have to go into a room, if you can and ask a CM if there are problems. If you want info or help otherwise, you have to phone, which is another joy or email and wait up to 48 hours for a response. Not for me.

I joined Once Upon a Bingo – greatest waste of money. I play dozens of sites and not complaining about the bingo end, I know it gambling and accept that, but members never talk – i mean NEVER. Cm’s jumping from room to room so no conversations going and no one claiming cg games. But what really got me mad was I joked about not getting a word in cos of all the *chatters* and was given a warning cos filter said chatter was not allowed!!!!!!This site part of dozens of others and really rubbish. I didn’t realise when i signed up, but am familiar with this large group and they are rubbish ….so be warned x

I love how this site looks and the free funded account meant that i could try it before i deposited. Loved the No Lose Bingo room on Friday too where you could win shopping vouchers, champagne and lots more. The chat host was really friendly too.

I had the same issue as honestmaid and although i had a letter with a promocode that i used when joining i never and still have not being given the free bonus, i did however deposit and won £65 from a tenner, so im more than happy. This is a dragonfish network, site but dont be put off as they have some great promos that normally only need a deposit of £5 with a 80%-100% bonus, plus all the great weekly big money games, a plus point for me is you can withdraw from £20.

Don’t bother with this site – have been waiting two days for bonus and still not there. What they promise doesnt happen. Tried to deposit and the link would not open so could only play in free room with a chance to win a pound. After several games didn’t get anywhere close to winning.
