Wayne's Cheeky Bingo Review

I was around when Cheeky Bingo first launched in 2009 and it went totally bonkers as the first site to offer free bingo with real cash prizes. I was manager of a free bingo website at the time so I remember it well. Our player numbers dropped!

Over the years the site has changed a few times and the free bingo has all but disappeared. However, the site is beginning to enjoy a new lease of life under owners Entain (formerly GVC Holdings).

It is part of a small network of brands that include Foxy, Coral and Ladbrokes Bingo. Cheeky has the benefit of having most of it's rooms linked with these other mega-brands, and so the player numbers and prizes you can win are comparible with a much bigger site.

However, there isn't a lot that's unique to Cheeky, particularly when it comes to bingo. There isn't really anything here that you couldn't find by playing at one of the other sister sites.

Bingo Games Available

Here is a list of all the different varieties of online bingo available at this site:

Bingo Games Available

How to find the bingo games

When you login you are taken to the Cheeky Bingo homepage. Here you can see a slider with various offers and promotions, then below that a selection of the next bingo games about to start.

To view all the bingo rooms simply click on 'See All' or click on the 'Bingo' link in the top nav. This is the best view to see all the games Cheeky has to offer.

Each room you will notice has a heart symbol in the top right corner. If you click on this it adds that room to your favourites. In future when you return to the site you can click on 'My Favourites' within the bingo section to filter out all the rooms except those you marked as faves.

How to make a deposit at cheeky bingo

There is a large deposit button in the top corner of the site that is hard to miss. Simply click on this to open up the cashier directly onto the deposit page. Here you can choose from the following:

  • Debit Card
  • Trustly
  • PayPal
  • Skrill & Skrill 1-Tap
  • Paysafecard
  • MuchBetter

There is also one called 'Promocode' which I'm not 100% sure about but may be used for when you win a competition of some kind.

Click the deposit method you wish to use and then follow the instructions. If you see 'transaction currency' GBP (1GBP = 1GBP) just ignore this as this is for overseas players using different currency.

The minimum deposit amount is £5.

How to make a withdrawal

To make a withdrawal isn't immediately obvious what to do. There is no big withdraw button on the page.

What you have to do is click on your avatar in the top right corner. This will present a dropdown menu with more options. Select Cashier and then Withdraw.

Choose the withdrawal method you wish to use and enter your amount. The minimum withdrawal amount is £10.

Like with all bingo sites, you can only withdraw to a method you have previously used to make a deposit. This is to prevent money laundering.

Cheeky Cashback

Much like the Foxy Perks over on sister site Foxy Bingo, Cheeky has a cashback promo of its own. It doesn't seem to be widely publicised on the promotions page, but if you click on the avatar icon at the top you may then see an option of 'My Cashback' in the dropdown menu.

Click on this to read all the information about this promotion, which gives various amounts of cashback on slots and casino gameplay. Unlike at Foxy, it doesn't appear to reward cashback for bingo play, which explains why I never really noticed it before. But if you do enjoy slots then you may wish to ensure you are opted in to this particular feature.

See website for all the details and promotional terms.

Free Bingo at Cheeky

Cheeky Bingo used to be well known for offering more free bingo than anyone else, but those days are long gone.

There is a free game that appears to be played each evening called Cheeky Exclusive, but it is only accessible to depositing players. So not entirely free in that regard.

Does Cheeky Bingo have an app?

Yes. Cheeky Bingo does have an app available on both the Google Play Store and Apple iOS Store (iPad & iPhone).

However, you get just the same experience on the mobile site so there isn't any great reason to download the app specifically.

Cheeky Bingo Contact Details

In the footer of the website there is a contact us button. This opens up a help & contact page which at first appears to be nothing more than a list of FAQs.

However, if you click through enough questions in any FAQ topic you will eventually be asked if you need more help. Answer 'yes' and you'll be directed to a contact page with links to live chat, phone and a contact form.

Who owns Cheeky Bingo?

Cheeky Bingo is owned by Entain Plc (formerly known as GVC Holdings). They're a publicly listed company based in the Ise of Man. They own several gambling brands including:

This is why all of these sites (with exception of Gala) are networked, meaning they have many of the same rooms and promotions as each other.
