Yay Bingo Review
About YAY Bingo
The Real Bingo Network with its no wagering policy is really starting to take off. Opened in April 2018 YAY Bingo opted for this Dragonfish derivative and has really managed to make itself stand out. The site is from TAU gaming and they were among the first to really step up the levels in the original bingo bonuses, so no doubt they will be looking for inventive ways to reward players without having to impose onerous wagering requirements.
There is bold use of colour, with bright pink, vivid yellow and pale blue in evidence, with real person images of both genders, a mix of ages and of couples and singles - everyone welcome at YAY Bingo. The standard offer stays static when you land on the homepage, but the top sliders provide a contrast and really emphasize that no wagering, all cash play, message. It describes itself as 'the most vibrant site around' and it is hard to disagree.
You might not be able to choose where to play your tickets or spins, but at a time when what you can offer besides loads of bonus is going to be under the microscope this site has done a good job of giving you all the reasons why you should play with them.

Quickly find your favourite games from the easy to navigate lobby. Choose initially from My Profile/Bingo/Promotions, then from On the Go/Guaranteed Jackpots/Gobsmacked/Free/Ace Club. The main section is On the Go and you will find a mixture of 90 ball, 75 ball and the 52 card bingo games.
Street Party - standalone
Blighty 90 - Sunny 90s
Wonky = Bounce'T
Number 10 = Big Fat 10
Last Call = Late Show
Hit 52 = Bingo 52
Fun'in 90 = Chatterbox
Gobsmacked = WOW Spins
3 x free bingo rooms - 2 of these are the weekly Sunday and Monday guaranteed games linked with traditional DF network sites.
Ace Club - 2 VIP rooms for guaranteed jackpots and the £10k Big Bang room where your welcome offer tickets play.
Games range in price from free to £1, with many rooms featuring a progressive jackpot. 75 ball progressive only available at selected times on selected pattern games. 90 ball progressive always available.
Although on the Real Bingo Network from Dragonfish you will note that some of the games are still networked with the original Dragonfish network. However, as the Real Bingo Network grows in numbers we would expect this practice to cease and for the network to have its own set of games and prizes.
Slots and casino games
These games can be selected from any page - you can Play Bingo or Play Slots and they are also found in the lobby, literally alongside the bingo rooms. The tabs here are New/Jackpots/All/?/Faves. You can also search for a specific game if you know what you are looking for. The ? feature means that the site will choose a random game for you to play.
Texas Hold'em is the only casino style game we could locate.
Withdrawal and wagering
- Minimum withdrawal: £5
- Processing time: 4 - 7 days
- NO WAGERING REQUIREMENTS*
*Although there are no wagering requirements to stop withdrawals it is worth noting that you will lose any free tickets waiting to be played if you withdraw. So be careful to wait till all your frees have played out before withdrawing:
"If you have not used any free ticket or free bingo voucher granted by the Company at the time you request a cash-out, then you will forfeit such unused free ticket or free bingo voucher (as applicable) and any related winnings generated through the unused free ticket or free bingo voucher (as applicable). including vouchers that are consumed/claimed and the game didn’t run yet."
£5 must have been deposited prior to a 1st withdrawal being requested. 10 withdrawals per day permitted.
Photo id, proof of address and copy of card may be requested.
Help and support
- Help Room - access this via the chat window in any bingo room 10am to 2am
- Tel: 0808 238 9814 - UK only
- Email: via on-site link
There is also a comprehensive FAQ section that may be of assistance.
Facebook: There is a Facebook page all lined up and ready to go. As we are reviewing this site immediately upon opening there is no activity as yet, but we would expect in time to find special offers and lots of advance notice of special events here. It is also an alternate way to contact the site should you need it.
YAY Bingo on mobile and tablet
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 YAY Bingo is simple and easy to understand. The navigation bar is located at the bottom of the screen and splits up the content into three categories - ‘Games’, ‘Bingo’ and ‘More’.
Slot games and instant win games are all under the ‘Games’ section, with a huge selection to choose from, such as Mega Fortune Jackpot, Fluffy Favourites, Irish Luck and Happy Birthday.
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.
Everything else on the site is under the ‘More’ section. Such as, how to play, licensing information and settings.
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.
Unlike the desktop version you are unable to access the site fully, such as seeing the games and promotions, until you sign-up. The sign-up process is fairly slick and straightforward on mobile.
Overall the site runs great on mobile with good load times and little hanging.
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.
