About Cheeky Bingo
It was back in February 2009 that Cheeky Bingo brought the concept of free bingo games to the world of online bingo. It was the first brand to give the player no cost games regularly!
A change of hands from Cashcade to Party Gaming and the USP for the brand was lost. Whilst they still have free games to offer players, the site has become a mirror image of many others. In addition, a move from the 888 software to the Electraworks (Cozy Games) in 2018 saw a further step down from the pick of the crop for this brand.
With that said, we’re veterans of bingo but for the new player, Cheeky Bingo may press all the right buttons and have you smiling from ear to ear.
|Welcome Offer||A 400% bingo bonus is awarded when you make a first deposit of £10.|
|Minimum Deposit||A £5 deposit is the minimum allowed but to claim the new player deal, a £10 minimum is required.|
|Best Deposit Methods||Debit card and PayPal, Paysafecard, Skrill, Trustly Instant Bank Transfer, Skrill 1-Tap, PromoCode, and MuchBetter|
|Bingo Software||Electraworks (previously known as Cozy Games)|
The new player welcome package doesn’t include anything for the slot lovers amongst us, it’s all about the bingo here! For your first deposit of at least £10, Cheeky Bingo will quadruple what you have to spend on the popular numbers game by giving you a whopping 400% bingo bonus when you have spent your initial deposit.
Unlike other sites where the bonus hits your account the moment that you drop your initial deposit, here you have to wager £10 on either bingo exclusively or slots exclusively. If you spend it across slots and bingo, the bonus will not be awarded.
The bonus can only be spent on bingo when it has been credited.
As the bonus awarded by this site is just for use on bingo, the wagering requirements are not excessive. You have to spend 4x the amount of the bonus awarded (£160) to have met the wagering requirements and not forfeit any bonus on withdrawal.
Wagering has to be met within 14 days of receiving the bonus offered or the bonus and any winnings will be void (removed from your account).
Additionally, if you still have bonus funds in your account but choose to redeposit, your bonus money will be used first to complete the wagering requirements.
Deposit and Withdrawal
There are several deposit options available to players but not all are for use in the UK. Debit cards and Paypal are the most popular options found at the site but additionally, you could choose to use one of the following depending on where you are from:
- Skrill 1-Tap
- Trustly Instant Bank Transfer
The minimum deposit value is £5. Likewise, the minimum withdrawal is also set at £5.
The promotions page at Cheeky Bingo isn’t jam-packed with deals and offers but there are quite a number that could keep you coming back for more, depending on what you like to see as a little something extra.
Some of the deals are time-limited so it is worth checking back intermittently to see the most current offers.
Below is just one example of regular promotions from the brand:
- Six Appeal Bingo – At 6.06 pm for six days a week (Monday to Saturday) you can play a game for 6p a ticket with six chances to win (full house prize and five roll-on prizes).
We do not have any Cheeky Bingo bonus codes to furnish you with at this point but if you have registered with the brand to receive marketing material, there is a good chance that you might find yourself with a code for an extra bonus on your next deposit.
Should we come across any Cheeky Bingo bonus codes in the future, they will be listed here for use.
You’re spoilt here for bingo choice because it’s not just limited to the standard 75 and 90 ball games. Although available as you would expect, they are complemented with 30 and 80 ball games too. There are 10+ bingo rooms to choose from!
Whilst slot lovers don’t appear to be taken into consideration with the current welcome offer from Cheeky Bingo, the site is still worth a visit if you fancy a spin of some of the best slot titles online today.
Electraworks, NetEnt, Microgaming, Eyecon, BluePrint Gaming, and many other developers have their titles in the portfolio of games available.
If all of that wasn’t enough, you will also find quite the selection of Slingo games amongst the mix!
If you need to contact support at Cheeky Bingo you need to use the pull-down menu from the main lobby from the ‘My Account’ icon and navigate to Help and Contact.
Phone support was not available at the time of preparing the review. They did however have a 24/7 live chat option where an agent can answer any queries in a matter of minutes.
What we found was just an FAQ section and if that didn’t answer a question, we were directed to a further help section.
Only a handful of sites are now powered by the Electraworks software and whilst they all use the product, each has its own bingo rooms and promotions. However, if you are looking for a site that offers the same gaming experience as Cheeky Bingo by way of gameplay, the following brands could be considered ‘sister sites’.
This brand has quite a history when it comes to advertising on television. However, since moving to the Dragonfish network we have not seen any more commercials from them.
The advert that we have included in this review is from way back when they were powered by the G2/Gtech software (which can be seen in the commercial):
Please note that any offers promoted in the advert are no longer valid.
Cheeky Bingo was the place to be when it first opened to players but after compiling the review on the Electraworks platform, we were left disappointed in many areas; namely wagering requirements, the lack of free games, and no easy way listed to contact support.
That said, there are not as many sites on this platform as there once was so, for originality, our star-rating has been bumped up to 3.5. There’s quite the variety of different bingo games available and some semi-decent promotions too so it’s not all bad!
