Like many people, you may well have a (very) soft spot for ice cream. And, considering you’re reading this, you more than likely enjoy playing online bingo games, too. So how would you feel if you could treat yourself to both of these delights at the same time? Like you’d be living the dream?
Well, dream no more because the bright sparks over at Sundae Bingo have made this fanciful idea a reality, launching an enticing ice cream-themed bingo site that – on first taste – certainly looks good enough to devour. But how sweet is it, and does it come with all the trimmings? Read our review to find out...
Launched by Tau Gaming in June 2018, Sundae Bingo runs on Dragonfish bingo software operating via the no-wagering Real Bingo Network. As well as ensuring all winnings are paid out as cash (always welcome), this set-up provides users with a reassuringly familiar feel.
In addition to the bingo, which naturally takes centre stage, Sundae Bingo also offers plenty of action on the slots front, as well as a selection of casino games and scratch cards. Happily, these offerings are of a consistently high standard, which should come as no surprise when it’s considered they’re sourced from leading software developers like NetEnt, NextGen Gaming and Thunderkick. As you’d expect, all of the games run smoothly and can be played without issue on desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
Sundae Bingo doesn't have any apps at present. This isn't an issue though, as the entire platform has been optimised for mobile play. Moreover, the layout of the lobby on the mobile platform is pretty much identical to that of the desktop version, making on-the-go play just as simplistic and intuitive as the fun you'd have at your desk.
Like sister sites Bingo Besties and Yay Bingo, Sundae Bingo has an easy-to-use interface that makes navigating the site seamless and stress-free. As well as being bright, colourful and welcoming, the home page and lobby areas are neat and simply designed. The site’s search facility does what it’s meant to pretty effectively, plus there’s a handy favourites tool (a heart icon) that enables users to store all their fave games in one convenient place. If you like a bit of unpredictability in your life then click on the question mark icon, which chooses a game for you to play at random.
While there may not be as many bingo rooms here as there are on some other bingo sites, Sundae Bingo has plenty to offer in the old ‘Eyes down’ department with 75-ball and 90-ball options front and centre. Games start every few minutes with prices generally ranging from free to £1. Many rooms feature a progressive jackpot, too.
If you fancy a break from the bingo rooms then give Sundae Bingo’s catalogue of slot games a try. With more than 300 high-quality titles on hand, including perennial favourites like Da Vinci Diamonds, Cosmic Cash, and Love Island Slingo, you’re sure to find a spin-clicker or two to keep you amused and, if you’re lucky, top up your balance.
And don’t forget about the casino games. Sundae Bingo doesn’t have a huge selection of them but it does have enough to meet your roulette needs or let you try your luck at cards with baccarat, blackjack et al. And if that doesn’t float your boat then there’s always the scratchcards.
Sundae Bingo does have a Facebook page but, in all fairness, it’s a bit of a dead duck, with very little going on. This is a great shame as any bingo fans will tell you the social media side of things can often be half the fun in this theatre of iGaming. On the plus side, there are chat rooms on hand in the bingo rooms so players who want to be sociable can enjoy a natter whenever they like.
Newcomers to the Sundae Bingo family can tuck into treats like free bingo tickets and free spins when they make their first deposit. Once signed up, players can benefit from a range of delicious promotions such as 50 daily free spins, monthly cashback and VIP status. If you opt in to text and email communication when you sign up, you'll be contacted about the latest exclusive promotions.
The support team at Sundae Bingo has earned a reputation for being a friendly, pro-active bunch. Though there's no live-chat feature, players with questions or issues can get help via email or courtesy of the cheery customer support telephone line.
All major payment methods are accepted, including Neteller, paysafecard, PayPal, EntroPay and wire transfer. You can also deposit by phone free of charge. Withdrawals take a minimum of two days. Be warned though; some methods can take seven to ten days.

Though it lacks a decent selection of casino games and isn’t so swift with some withdrawals, Sundae Bingo definitely delivers the goods in bingo and slots terms. The generous promos are pretty impressive, too. So, while it may not have all the trimmings, it’s certainly very tasty overall.
