Champers Bingo is a member of the Cozy Games / Live Bingo network (LBN) stable of online bingo sites. It features a relatively plain design, with a backdrop of a nightclub party scene. The only champagne to be seen is a discreet silhouette behind the site logo.
There are certainly some generous welcome bonuses for new players. Experienced bingo players will also be impressed by the wide range of bingo formats offered: 90, 80, 75, 50 & 30 ball bingo games are available on this site. Ticket prices vary widely from a few pence up to £1. There are no “free” games as such, but new players are awarded a free £10 sign up bonus, so you can still try things out before making your first deposit. But of course you must still spend real money before collecting any winnings (see wagering requirements).
It all runs smoothly enough, despite the ominous warning in the “How to Play Bingo” section that a “…great deal of patience required”. Thankfully not when I visited! The chat rooms were busy and the jackpots competitive, both boosted by the fact that you are joined by players from other sites on the LBN network. The promotions are the standard LBN offerings, with a seasonal flavour.
In conclusion, this review of Champers Bingo is a little lukewarm. It’s OK, it works well, the games are smooth and the prizes competitive, but there are better designed sites on the network and some of the Terms & Conditions are a little “unusual” (see The Legal Stuff below). The introductory offers are certainly attractive though, so if you just want to get on with the bingo, give it a go.
There are around 40 slots to choose from on Champers Bingo, together with a few scratch card & casino-style options.
The software for this site is provided by Cozy Games.
One loyalty points is awarded for every £1 you spend. 100 points can be exchanged for £1 to be spent on the site. “Bonus Bucks” are also awarded on deposits which can be spent on tickets.
All the typically used credit and debit cards are acceptable on this site, including Visa, MasterCard, Switch and Solo, together with a few e-payment methods. Making a deposit is a simple process: after providing your registration details, just click on “Banking”, choose your method of payment and amount, then “submit”. The minimum deposit amount is £10.
The minimum withdrawal amount is £30. You must wager 4 x any deposit + welcome bonus, before your first withdrawal. This means that if you deposit £10 and receive a welcome bonus of £20, you must spend £120 in real funds (4 x £10 + 4 x £20). Further bonuses carry a wagering requirement of 8 x your bonus amount. This applies to bingo only – other games have a higher requirement. Your requested funds can be expected to take around 7 days to reach your nominated account.
Champers Bingo is licensed and registered via the Isle of Man. This means that it is covered by the UK Gambling Commission and is therefore considered safe to play in the UK.
NOTE - Interestingly this site reserves the right to charge you a maintenance fee of £5 per month if your account is dormant for more than 90 days. Be warned!
Yes you can play on Champers Bingo without wagering any real money.
