Astro Bingo is one of only a handful of brands online today that is still powered by the Parlay Entertainment bingo software. The home page for the site doesn't have the proverbial bells and whistles of other brands on the Internet today; in fact it is rather dull in comparison.
You'll find details of the welcome bonus, well the cash match part at least but you may find it doesn't quite add up. This is because Astro Bingo doesn't make a big song and dance about the no deposit required welcome bonus part of the deal, the part that really would grab a player's interest. In fact, the £10 free deal has been banished to small print.
Registering an account with Astro Bingo is a fairly painless process with no financial information required at sign-up. The free bonus (if still available at the time of your registration) is added to your bonus balance the moment you have logged into your new account. These funds can only be used to play bingo with, to try the array of side games available you would need to make a deposit.
Once logged into your account you can see all of the rooms available at Astro Bingo. The lobby can be a tad confusing dependent on the time of day you visit. Whilst writing the review the Lucky Streak room was open and hosted 75 ball games but at other times there are only 90 ball games offered.
Free bingo is available at the site but only if you have wagered at least 5p between Monday and Sunday in the week prior. This then opens up the free room that hosts £15 cash games (One line for £2, two lines for £3 and £10 for a full house) on a Tuesday at 8pm.
Promotions from Astro Bingo change on a regular basis but the rules can often be quite confusing, at least we have found this to be the case. There are a selection of guaranteed jackpot games on offer and bonuses on all deposits but player numbers at the site are fairly low despite it being part of a network.
The site is one that will appeal more to a player looking for an intimate gaming experience or a bonus hunter rather than someone looking for big jackpot games and an impressive community feel.
Bingo Games Available
Astro Bingo offers just two different variants for the bingo game at their site; 75 ball pattern games and 90 ball bingo. The selection of instant win games isn't that impressive either, not in comparison with the likes of the Virtue Fusion and Dragonfish brands.

The minimum deposit required is £10.
The minimum withdrawal amount is £30.
Astro Bingo do not list specific wagering requirements in their Terms and Conditions but do state that "players always have access to their funds - they may redeem their winnings, including the amount they deposited, at any time".
