A Quick Look at Candy Shop Bingo
Candy Shop Bingo is one of the brightest and most colourful online bingo sites around, where you can play 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games by Dragonfish, as well as a large selection of online slots and casino games. There are great promotions and progressive jackpot games on offer all the time, and you can join in fun chat games in all of the bingo rooms.
Games & Software
The games at Candy Shop Bingo are all powered by Dragonfish, one of the biggest providers of online bingo software, so you get access to a great range of networked games with excellent jackpot prizes, as well as a first-rate gaming experience.
Choose from 90 ball or 75 ball bingo in a variety of rooms, like the Late-Night Show room, Big Night In room, Bounce’T or Pennies Make Pounds room, with tickets at prices to suit everyone. Games feature both guaranteed and progressive jackpot prizes (where you win the jackpot if you get a Full House within a set number of calls), and you can buy bingo tickets in advance if your favourite game is being played at a time when you can’t get online.
You can also take part in The Big £10K, a huge jackpot game held on the 10th of every month, where half the prize pool is split amongst everyone who buys a ticket or has gotten one as a loyalty reward. These offers can change at any time.
Slots & Casinos
When you want a break away from bingo, you have a great selection of Candy Shop Bingo slots to choose from. With games by NetEnt, IGT and 888, there is plenty of choice and variety, and you can play popular video and themed slot games like Starburst, The X Factor Steps To Stardom, Shaman’s Dream and Gonzo’s Quest.
You can also play Betty’s Candy Collector, a unique gumball machine game where the prizes include loyalty points, bingo bonuses and slot bonuses.
How to Deposit & Cash Out
There is a reasonable range of payments at Candy Shop Bingo UK players can use, including PayPal, Neteller, PaySafe Card and entroPay, alongside Visa and MasterCard debit cards, and bank transfer. When you make a deposit, funds are credited to your account instantly, and the minimum deposit amount is £10.
Withdrawal requests are subject to a 48-hour processing period (during which time your request can be cancelled), and you are required to withdraw via the same method used for deposits. Where this isn’t possible (e.g., deposits made with PaySafe Card), you will receive your money via cheque.
While the number of payment methods accepted here isn’t huge, there is a good mix of payment types on offer, and this means most of you should be able to find a convenient and accessible way to manage your account.
Community & Customer Service
It is a bit frustrating that there is a prominent link at the top of every page where you are urged to ‘Join Betty on Facebook’, but when you click through you find that the page has been removed. Likewise, there is a Twitter page (@candyshopbingo) but this is not in use either. This broken link doesn’t create a very good impression, so they could certainly improve in the social media space.
However, in other ways the site does a good job of engaging with players. You will generally find that the chat room hosts are friendly and easy to connect with, and they always welcome new players to a room and succeed in keeping the atmosphere light and friendly.
There are a wide range of options when it comes to contacting customer services if you have a problem or a query. These include:
- Live Chat: Available 24/7
- Phone number: 0800 901 2510 (toll free)
- Email: [email protected]
Take Candy Shop Bingo with You
You can play Candy Shop Bingo mobile games on any sort of device, as there is no app to download or install. Instead, all of the bingo games and slots can be played directly in the browser of your Apple iPhone or iPad, Android smartphone or tablet, or any other phone that connects to the internet.
We think that the Candy Shop Bingo app actually gives you a more enjoyable playing experience than you get on a laptop or desktop. There is a really slick UI that makes navigating the site very easy, with most features only a single tap away. The game screens are very clear, so you always know the numbers being called and how well you’re doing in a game, while other features, like being able to pre-buy tickets, are also easily accessible on the mobile site.
Our Take on Candy Shop Bingo
Candy Shop Bingo is a site that we think offers an enjoyable all-round gaming experience. The bright colours and fun design create an engaging atmosphere, while the Dragonfish software means you can enjoy high quality 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games and get access to some very good progressive jackpot prizes.
The range of online slots and side games also adds to the playing experience, as does the fact that the site looks good and plays well on the smaller screens of mobile phones and tablets.
Overall, our view is that this is a site that players can always rely on to provide high quality gaming, and so our final verdict is Candy Shop Bingo review rating of 4 stars out of 5.
