Diva Bingo Review
Diva Bingo is a bingo site that intends to bring out the Diva in you. Truth be told, they do little to accomplish such feats though. I really expected to see all kinds of promos like “win a trip to the spa”, or “win a shopping spree”. However, this is simply your run of the mill Dragonfish powered bingo site that does little to add value to their standard package of special games and offers – aside from the bigger 200% deposit bonus.
That being said, Diva Bingo is certainly not a horrible new bingo site. It is just that Diva Bingo do little to make themselves much more than ordinary – which is clearly not good enough for unleashing the inner Diva. Their welcome bonus with the spin the wheel bonus booster is the high point of their site. Beyond that, Diva Bingo lacks the depth I expect from a well-hyped and new bingo site.
Diva Bingo is licensed and operated by 888 UK Limited. Diva Bingo is powered by Dragonfish, who powers some of the world’s largest bingo networks.
Diva Bingo Bonuses & Specials
Diva Bingo offers a 200% First Deposit Bonus for new accounts up to £100. Players must deposit a minimum of £10 to qualify for this bonus. Players also are awarded one free chance at Spin the Wheel on their first deposit, which will award them a random prize between £10 – £2500 extra – FREE. There is also a redeposit bonus of 50%. In order to qualify for this bonus, players must deposit a minimum of £10, but they must have valid credit and debit card details in their account before depositing.
Diva Bingo offers over £11,000 in Guaranteed Jackpots every week. The “Jumping Jackpots” are spread amongst more than 50 guaranteed jackpot games very day. The Diva Bingo Jumping Jackpots come with a guaranteed prize ranging from £20 up to £100. The games start at various times of the morning, afternoon, evening, and night at Diva Bingo.
On top of the deposit bonuses, jackpots, and giveaways, players can also enjoy the Chat Games offered by Diva Bingo. These chat games run at a rate of about 10 games an hour in the 75 Ball and 90 Ball bingo rooms. In order to participate, players must be depositing members, and have purchased tickets to the bingo game that is currently playing. The games are run by Chat Monitors who are more than happy to help explain how the games run. Winning players are awarded 1,000 GPs.
Diva Bingo Rewards
In order to qualify to join Diva Bingo’s VIP program, players must deposit a total £500. This does not need to be all in one deposit- however once they reach this amount; they are automatically entered into the VIP program. Players will receive an invitation email detailing the benefits of the program. Players should keep an eye on their email address, as Diva Bingo will often send VIP exclusive promotional information to inform players of upcoming events and special offers.
Players earn “Glamour Points” or GP through many different promotions and giveaways throughout the site. For every 10p spent on bingo card purchases, players earn points. However, players can only earn GP on wagers purchased with their cash balance, not with bonus funds. Players can redeem these points for Bonus Funds in “My Account” at a rate of 1,000 GP for £1.
One of the great benefits of the VIP program is their Cash Back offer. In order to qualify, players must be a funded player and have wagered a minimum of £20. At the end of every month, the 5% cash back is calculated and awarded to players. The minimum amount players can receive is £1. The maximum amount is £100.
On top of this, the redeposit bonus is upped to 60% instead of 50%. The birthday bonus is increased to 100% instead of 70%, and the bonus for referring a friend to play at Diva Bingo is increased £5 up to £15 total. Players also qualify for special VIP exclusive gifts.
This VIP rewards program is your standard cookie cutter rewards program offered by plug and play sites on the same network (read: nothing much to write home about in our opinion).
Games Fit for a Diva?
Diva Bingo offers a wide variety of game types. Players can enjoy Instant win games, Slots, Roulette, Video Poker, Blackjack, Wheel of Light, and a wide selection of Bingo games. Some of the slots offered include Bejeweled, Cleopatra, X Factor, and Pharaoh’s Luck.
Some of the different types of bingo offered include 75 Ball, 90 Ball, Pre-Buy games and Jackpot games. The ticket values range from 1p up to £1. The 90 Ball Bingo rooms are The Rehab, Access All Areas, Casanova, Backstage Bingo, Talk is Cheap, and The Daily Freebie. 75 Ball is played in The Sauna, Paparazzi Playground, and Share the Love bingo rooms. These rooms are all open during different times of the day, with only Access All Areas open 24 hours. Ticket cost also varies by room- Talk is Cheap and The Daily Freebie are the only rooms with free tickets. The Rehab’s tickets vary in price between 1p and 6p per card, while the most expensive room is Backstage Bingo (priced between 25p to £1 each).
Diva Bingo offers two progressive jackpot games. Money Talks is available in all 90 ball rooms, except on games that have a fixed jackpot. To win this, players simply need to hit a Full House in 39 calls or less. Gift of Gab is the second progressive jackpot, but is only available in the Paparazzi Playground room. It is held at a quarter past the hour from 5:15pm to 11:15pm, and players must hit a Full House on “G” pattern in 30 calls or less.

Final thoughts on Diva Bingo
As we mentioned in the beginning of this report, Diva Bingo is slightly more than the average Dragonfish offering. They do little to differentiate themselves in terms of specials, promos, or games in relation to the standard package set up for Dragonfish bingo sites. The VIP program leaves even more to be desired, as this was yet another area in which I expected them to excel. However, this site is clearly one that peaked my interest in name and perceived theme only to leave me disappointed at the door.
Overall, we rate Diva Bingo a “C” and challenge them to up their game significantly if they wish to be included amongst the elite.
