A Game of Bingo In Progress.
Choosing a game to join.
Cheeky Bingo certainly catches the eye with its bright pink and purple layout and flash graphics highlighting bonus offers and the featured games. The site has run on the popular 888/Globalcom software platform since 2011, which allows Cheeky Bingo to offer plenty of games and casino titles as well as some tempting deals for new customers and loyal players. The company that own the software also provides secure banking facilities, dedicated customer support and licensing. Owned by Cashcade Ltd, Cheeky bingo are part of the same group as the huge Foxy Bingo site, as well as the GetMinted Casino brand, so players can be assured that they are dealing with a big professional operation and not some 'here today, gone tomorrow' company.
The site is logically laid out so that visitors can quickly register and get playing, although finding details about the casino games is not so straightforward as they are listed under the 'Promotions' tab. Apart from that, it's very easy to navigate and signing up only takes a couple of minutes.
Cheeky Bingo holds 75 and 90 ball versions in several rooms and chat games are a speciality. In the 1TG and 2TG, players who have just 1 or 2 balls to go for a win will share a part of the prize pot, which is a nice extra. There are usually some pre-buy rooms running where tickets can be bought up to a week prior to the event, ensuring that a place is saved, and there is a good range of ticket prices from 1p to £1.
Once logged in, users can go to the Lobby to see what is scheduled to start and details of how many players are entered, as well as prices and prizes. The layout is typical of sites using this software, which is no bad thing as it's all very clear and intuitive, with ticket purchases and numbers called on the left of the screen, the main part of the screen given over to the tickets themselves and any chat on the right hand side. Featured casino games are highlighted across the top so, just by clicking on them, customers can enjoy a selection of slots, instant win and table based entertainment. Slots include:
Keno, Video Poker and Blackjack are also available to play. There is the option to keep the main bingo window running in the background while at the slots and casino section, and the software will notify a player if they are getting close to a win.
A good quality mobile version of the site is available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices. 75 and 90 ball versions plus some of the best known slots like Fluffy Favourites can be found here with full chat facilities included. Although players will need to register an account and payment method via the desktop version of Cheeky Bingo, once this has been done, further funds can be deposited using just a mobile, and all bonuses can be claimed when playing away from the main site.
The offers at Cheeky Bingo are quite good, with customers able to play in six free rooms with guaranteed jackpots of up to £50. Like most online bingo sites, Cheeky like to thank anyone who signs up to play here with a bonus based on the size of their first deposit. The details of this offer change occasionally, but they tend to be generous and easy to claim, plus they often include a small no-deposit bonus offer to help people get started without having to make any payments at all.
It's not only new players who get rewards though, as there is a lucrative re-load bonus that can be collected each time a qualifying deposit is made. Again, this can vary in size but it will certainly help customers to play more bingo while paying out less of their own money, and is a nice extra that not all sites provide. Additionally, for every bingo card purchased, players earn Loyalty Points and, once enough have been collected, these can be redeemed for further bonus funds.
Like most bingo operators, Cheeky Bingo attach certain conditions to their bonuses which are designed to prevent mis-use of the funds. Bonuses are actually credits that can be used to buy bingo tickets, and while winnings made using bonus funds can be withdrawn, the actual bonus itself cannot be. There are always special offers on, such as guaranteed jackpots, BOGOF deals, surprise gifts, prize draws and extra loyalty points in certain rooms at certain times. As these vary, it's best to check out their site to see what is running at the moment, but it's always a pretty good selection.
Although there are only a few deposit and withdrawal options that can be used, they cover the main credit and debit cards, prepaid cards and vouchers and e-wallets that are used in the UK. Anyone should be able to access at least one of these, although if paying in with a prepaid card or voucher, any winnings will have to be credited back to an alternative method. This can be set up when making the deposits or requesting a first withdrawal. Withdrawal requests are processed within 2 business days, with the money going back to the most recently used e-wallet or card. As the card companies have their own processing times, it can be a few days before the money is back in the players account. If a cheque is requested, it can take a week or so.
The quickest way to contact Cheeky Bingo is by phone, which is free from the UK and open from 10am until 6pm Monday to Friday. Alternatively they can be e-mailed, although it can take them a while to respond. If a Chat Moderator is running a game, they can be contacted directly and will endeavour to solve any issues that a player may have.
Cheeky Bingo is a bright, fun operation which stands out for the number of promotions on offer, ease of use and quality of software. With lots of welcoming chat games, customers can really feel part of a community of players where everyone is there to relax and enjoy themselves. They don't have a massive range of games, and they are a standalone site which do not feature any network wide bingo, but with a number of free rooms, tickets from just 1p and guaranteed jackpots that run into the thousands, there is still lots to recommend here.
