Wink Bingo Review
About Wink Bingo
Wink Bingo takes pride in its bingo platform and strives to provide their players with "the best online gaming experience possible". The site features chat games, giveaways, promotions every day and big jackpots guaranteed. Wink Bingo is also recognised as being one of the friendliest and sociable bingo sites.
The site underwent a radical makeover in December 2014 that saw it launch a new colour scheme and even a new logo. In September 2016 the site was updated yet again and although it still has the familiar colour scheme the whole feel is a lot more 'grown up'. At the same time the site adopted the new style Dragonfish software just to add to the feeling of this being a whole new bingo site.
More changes took place in January 2018 and the 'real life' images were once again replaced by drawings and at the same time the site introduced 'Wink Rewards'.
Wink Bingo is one of the premium bingo sites available in the UK market today. This bingo site offers players an excellent selection of bingo, slots and instant games. A big attraction at Wink Bingo is the amazing variety of big cash jackpots and top of the line prizes on special bingo promotions all year round.
For a superior experience and innumerable chances to win top class prizes give Wink Bingo a try. Take advantage of its generous welcome bonuses and free bingo opportunities.

Links to the Wink Bingo social media pages are available from the home page, indicating that they understand the significance of social media in the lives of its players.
Facebook: Usually quite active, the Wink Bingo Facebook page tends to go through peaks and troughs of activity. There tends to be lots of links to self help articles and a lot less bonus opportunities than you might expect from a brand that always seems to put the player experience first. You can also contact the site from here and expect a response within a few hours if you have a general query.
Twitter: Again links to interesting articles about gaming and about slot games, but a lot less promo codes and bonuses than were once so frequent.
YouTube: A great way to see how the Wink Bingo TV adverts have evolved and you can even go back to when the Dream Idols were brand ambassadors. The channel also includes details of many of the slot games that feature on Wink Bingo so you can decide ahead of time if you fancy playing.
G+: Pretty much the source of many of the articles that are featured on Facebook and Twitter.
