Cheeky Bingo was launched in 2009 and then it was redesigned two years later to become the lively site we see today, over the past few years Cheeky Bingo has built a reputation of being one of the most fun and cheeky bingo and gambling sites in The United Kingdom, it is also known for being generous with its prizes and promotions.
Cheeky Bingo is run by Cassava Enterprises who are owned by 888 Holdings who also have popular brands such as 888.com and Casino-On-Net, Cheeky Bingo is one of the few sites that can offer free online bingo for cash prizes and was actually one of the first sites to do so. Cheeky Bingo have even had several high budget television adverts, these adverts are fun, upbeat and have great comic timing, they usually show an unusual and comical situation which is then followed by the slogan “And then there’s cheeky free”, this showing us that Cheeky Bingo offers both free games and a fun, cheeky experience.
If you join Cheeky Bingo you can enjoy over 750 free games a day with free jackpots of up to £50 and you will get 200% extra credit on the first deposit you make, so for example if you deposit if you deposit £10 you will receive a free £20 extra credit, you can do this up to £100 which means you will have a massive £300 in credit should your first deposit be £100.
Cheeky Bingo offers both 75 ball which is the American style of bingo and 90 ball games of Bingo, the latter being the British version of the game. There are a plethora of bingo rooms on the Cheeky Bingo site with various different tickets prizes and jackpot amounts, there are also progressive jackpots which see’s the jackpot rise until somebody finally wins the prize.
The bingo is very user friendly and it is quite easy to purchase your tickets, you just click on the ones you would like with a minimum of one and a maximum of 96, following this you then click on the button on the yellow button on the left that says BUY SELECTED TICKETS and then you just simply wait for the game to start, you can chat to other users whilst you wait or you can even play an instant mini game, the tab for this is above the chat feature and there are several titles to choose from such as Money Bunny slots, the Mini Noughts & Crosses scratch card, and Blackjack as well as European Roulette. The best thing about these mini games is that it does not mean you have to leave the bingo room as both can be played concurrently. The chat room feature at the right hand side of the screen can be used whilst playing the bingo, you don’t have to use the chat feature but it is an enjoyable part of the game and adds to the social experience
The software allows your customize your games of bingo, options include either dabbing your own bingo card or letting the computer to automatically mark your bingo cards. You can also change the colour and pattern of your dauber. You can also choose whether you want any audio or not.
There are many rooms in the free bingo section, including Fancy Free, Forever Free, Free n Easy, Free Style, Freedom, and Free’s a Crowd, these games are quite frequent but the big money wins are every two to three hours and these rooms include Free Range and Big Freebie
Cheeky Bingo also has games with five pence tickets, these rooms include Bar-Faced-Cheek, Cheeky Monkey, Nice n Saucy and Cheeky Minx. The jackpot gets progressively higher throughout the day and it is possible to have jackpot of nearly £50 from just a five pence ticket which if you win from one ticket effectively means you have multiplied your little five pence by a thousand.
Ten pence bingo rooms include Naughty But Nice, Giggle n Jiggle, Oh So Cheeky, Quick Kicks, the progressive jackpot at the time of writing standing at just a little more than £15, however at 9pm every evening it is possible to win £250 from just a ten pence ticket.
The big money game on Cheeky Bingo is the £2,500 Pre-Buy Jackpot which is every Friday at 8pm, the cards for this are just 25 pence.
There is also some consolation for those who have a near miss when playing bingo, if you play 1TG and 2TG games and finish the game with one or two balls to go then the pot will be shared between you and the other players who are in the same situation. This show that Cheeky Bingo is a generous site and rewards those who haven’t been lucky enough to win the jackpot.
Despite it’s title there is more to Cheeky Bingo than just bingo, there are an array of fun games to augment the online gambling experience , there are slots, table games and video poker as well as scratch cards. Many of the games have a practice play mode meaning you can play for your own enjoyment or for learning how to play the game before you commit to using your funds. There are a wealth of fun slot games for those who like a quick instant win, , one of these is games is Shopping Spree.
Shopping Spree has a progressive jackpot and you can win some big cash prizes. There are five progressive reel and nine different pay lines. If you bet on all the lines you can win big money. There are also special features in this game, if you get more than three pound signs you get instant credit bonus.
There is also a slot game based on popular 1980′s puppet Roland Rat., this game has five reels and has twenty five paylines. There are also two bonus games. One of the bonus rounds is the Travel Feature in which we see a map of Britain appears, you get a number of picks from each symbol symbol that appears and you can win a large jackpot on this. When you get a winning combination in the Roland Rat game you can also choose to gamble this amount to win even bigger prizes. This game is one of the most fun and rewarding games I have played and I like it’s retro feel in particular.
In addition to your cash jackpot you can also win bingo cards by putting a £25.00 wager on slot games such as Happy Mushroom, these tickets are usually for massive jackpot games with a bingo jackpot of £6,500.
Table games also feature Cheeky Bingo and the titles include European roulette, French roulette and Blackjack. In French Roulette the wheel is numbered from 0 to 36 and the aim of the game is simple, you have to predict where the ball will stop on the wheel, you can bet on a variety of outcomes including inside bet, outside bets and ball bets. This version uses La Partage rules which means that you only lose half of your money if you have placed an even money bet. The realistic graphics create a tense game and it is a fantastic alternative to normal roulette.
There are four scratch card games on Cheeky Bingo these are Hollywood Stars, Frolicking Frogs, Noughts and Crosses and X Factor Scratch Card
As well as the first time deposit bonus of 200% , everytime existing Cheeky Bingo members make a deposit a 50% bonus will be added your account, this gives you more to play with and makes the fun last so much longer
