Fantastic Spins sister sites 2023
Let’s start with an apology to any disappointed Disney fans out there because there’s no connection between this bingo and casino site and the famous Disney movie “Frozen.” If that’s what you were hoping to find, we’re afraid you’re just going to have to let it go! The word “frozen” is appropriate enough in the context of this site, though, because it looks like it’s been frozen in time somewhere around 2009. This is a problem that plagues several of the Fantastic Spins sister sites, and Fantastic Spins itself is like something from a bygone age.
The state of decay at Frozen Bingo is such that the latest “new game” advertised on its homepage is Vlad’s Castle, which is a vampire-themed game that Eyecon released several years ago. If you’re wondering why the homepage of a bingo site is used to promote slots rather than bingo games, your guess is as good as ours. This is far from the only iGaming site on this network to suffer from that curious problem, though.
The better Fantastic Spins sister sites are every bit as attractive as the worst ones are ugly. Comparing Ted Bingo and Frozen Bingo side by side, you’d never believe that both sites were made by the same company. In truth, they weren’t – Grand Battery Holdings Limited operates by acquiring casinos and iGaming sites from other places; it never builds them itself.
We’re not totally clear on why Ted Bingo is called Ted Bingo – there are no teddy bears here, nor any sign of anyone called Ted – but that scarcely matters when the site offers up to £700 in bingo bonuses to all new players. You won’t find many bingo rooms to use them in, though – this is another one of the many supposedly bingo-focused Fantastic Spins sister sites that actually focuses on slots rather than bingo. If slots are your thing, though, you have a choice of around 500.
After seeing two Grand Battery Holdings “bingo” sites that actually have very little to do with everybody’s favourite numbers game, it’s nice to come across one that actually puts bingo centre stage. Blighty Bingo is exactly what it sounds like it ought to be – a patriotically and proudly British casino with plenty of bingo action. There’s a lot of flag-waving going on in the images on the homepage for people who are into that kind of thing, but if you’re more interested in the gaming content, you should find that the welcome promotion is to your liking.
New players can claim 64 free bingo tickets plus a few spins to use on the site’s slots when they sign up and deposit at least £10. Top bingo rooms at Blighty Bingo include Street Party, Ace Club, and Last Call. Each room has its own jackpot and ticket price, so there’s something for everyone. There aren’t as many slots here as there are at other Fantastic Spins sister sites, but that’s not really what Blighty Bingo is for.
Woman Bingo sounds like a bizarre name for an iGaming site at first, but only until you realise that it’s actually the official bingo and casino site of Woman Magazine. If you’re still none the wiser, Woman Magazine is a weekly female-interest magazine that’s been published in the UK since the 1930s. These days it’s one of many near-identical celebrity-focused glossy magazines. The magazine’s branding is all over the Woman Bingo site, which makes it a little surprising that its welcome promotion isn’t a tad more generous than it actually is. It’s capped at £40 and comes with an x50 wagering requirement, thus rendering it more trouble than it’s worth to work through. While there are bingo games here,
Woman Bingo can be added to the long, strange list of Fantastic Spins sister sites that claim to specialise in bingo but lean far heavier into providing and promoting slots. If we were Woman Bingo, we’d be speaking to Grand Battery Holdings about adding a little more pizzazz to our officially-licensed site.
You came here looking for Fantastic Spins sister sites, so we’re guessing that the absence of bingo games at the bingo sites on this list doesn’t bother you too much. If all you want is a slots site that looks and feels a bit better to use than Fantastic Spins itself, Ruby Riches might be one for you to consider. This is one of Grand Battery Holdings Limited’s white-label casinos, so while the operator is responsible for its licencing and providing it with games, someone else oversees the running of it.
The Ruby Riches welcome promotion is pretty weak, which is a recurring theme at casinos on this platform, but there’s nothing wrong with its collection of games so long as you’re happy playing the old favourite rather than anything newer. Based on what’s featured on the homepage, we suspect that Ruby Riches has the same core range of around five hundred slots that exists at all the Fantastic Spins sister sites we’ve looked at above.

Fantastic Spins operator – Grand Battery Holdings Limited
The story of Grand Battery Holdings Limited is a surprisingly long one for a company that didn’t exist until 2022. It starts with the 888 Group’s decision to get out of the bingo business and focus on its core casino and sports betting brands. All of the company’s existing casino sites were packaged up and sold to the highest bidder. That bidder was Broadway Gaming Limited – an iGaming company based in Dublin, Ireland, that already has several bingo sites to its name. It bought out 888’s sites for a reported £38m, which some industry insiders thought was a surprisingly low figure given how many sites came with the deal. After taking ownership of more than two hundred former 888 bingo and casino sites, it decided not to add them to its existing UK Gambling Commission licence. We’re not sure of the reasoning behind that decision, but it was an important one because that’s how Grand Battery Holdings Limited was born.
Having decided not to directly manage its newly-acquired sites, Broadway Gaming created Grand Battery Holdings Limited. It’s effectively a trading style of the larger business and shares the same address in Dublin. A new UK Gambling Commission licence was applied for and obtained, and Grand Battery Holdings was up and running. It officially took ownership of all 200+ ex-888 Group sites in February 2022 and has been tasked with running them ever since. As Grand Battery Holdings doesn’t “really” exist other than as an extension of Broadway Gaming, it has no identity as a business. It doesn’t even have a logo; the one you see above was designed by us to fill the gap!
Fantastic Spins review
Fantastic Spins Sister Sites Welcome Bonuses
You’ll find the Fantastic Spins welcome offer right next to the Daily Jackpot figure in the middle of the casino’s homepage. It’s an offer of a 100% matched deposit up to £50, and it comes with one hundred bonus spins. The free spins are dished out at a rate of twenty per day after the qualifying deposit of at least £10 is made and can only be redeemed on selected games. The games aren’t explicitly named. The wagering requirement attached to this promotion is x30, which is considered good because it’s lower than the UK average. If the ceiling were a little higher than £50, it would be considered a good bonus.
Fantastic Spins might not look like it’s up to much as a casino, but its promotions are surprisingly detailed. Proof of that can be found in the Fantastic Spins “rewards shop.” To buy things in the shop – things like free spins and matched deposits – you’ll need Fantastic Spins coins. They’re obtained by playing slots and are awarded at a rate of one coin for every £10 spent. In addition, players who end up down on their day’s gaming receive three per cent of their losses back as cashback the following day, subject to a minimum of £5 and a maximum of £100. Smaller periodic promotions may occasionally become available, too.
Top Games at Fantastic Spins
Fantastic Spins presents itself as “the place where slots are super” but promotes surprisingly few of them on its homepage. In fact, the only slots game you’ll see under the default view is a very basic five-reeler called Fruit Salad, which is advertised as being exclusive to the casino but is unremarkable in every way. To see the top slots at Fantastic Spins, click the “A-List” tab. You’ll find that the very top slots game is the bonus-heavy Gold Blitz slot from Fortune Factory Studios, followed closely by Big Bass Bonanza by Reel Kingdom. For all the sequels that have been released to that slot since it came out in 2020, the original is still considered the best by many players. The cluster pays Fruit Blast slots game by the obscure Skillzzgaming studio takes third place. It’s a quirky slot, but its graphics are awful.
Customer Support and Licensing
Customer support is another area where Fantastic Spins performs better than you’d expect it to perform based on the casino’s shabby appearance. There’s no live chat, but players can call the casino’s support team on freephone 0800 279 7638 or request assistance via email on firstname.lastname@example.org. As a Grand Battery Holdings Limited casino, Fantastic Spins is covered by UK Gambling Commission licence 58267. It’s a clean licence with no fines or other issues.
Withdrawal Speed and Support
The logos of PayPal, Visa and Mastercard all appear in the footer of the Fantastic Spins website, which suggests that they’re the only payment methods available. The casino lacks a banking page, and the wording of the section about withdrawal in its FAQ is vaguer than we’d like it to be. All it tells us is that there’s a wait of one working day for the casino to process a withdrawal request, after which it could take a further five working days for the process to complete. If that’s accurate, it’s far too slow by modern standards.
Final Thoughts on Fantastic Spins
You’ll initially have low expectations of Fantastic Spins because, for want of a better phrase, it looks like the back end of a bus. It looks so dated that it doesn’t even resemble an iGaming site from the past decade – it’s more like something that was designed and launched closer to the year 2000. If you can forgive it for that, though, you’ll find that it has a solid range of slots, decent promotions, and excellent customer support. It’s a shame its withdrawal process isn’t faster, though.
Fantastic Spins Sister Sites Player Reviews
Here are the thoughts of your fellow players about Fantastic Spins. The reviews are all real, but we’ve paraphrased them to keep them brief.
Nobody’s posted any reviews of Fantastic Spins on any major review sites in the past twelve months. Even before that, the casino was reviewed very rarely. As such, we can’t bring you an accurate, up-to-date picture of player feedback about the casino. We like to do so where we can, though, so we’ll keep watch, and if any new Fantastic Spins reviews appear in the future, we’ll bring them to you here.
