Powered by Jumpman Gaming, Charming Bingo hopes to charm the bingo pants off anyone who likes 90-ball or 75-ball bingo. With trophies and badges to be won, a beneficial VIP scheme with cashback and bonuses plus multiple spins of the Mega Wheel available, this site hopes to charm all its bingo players.
If you make a deposit of at least £10 at this site then you get one free spin on the Charming Bingo Mega Wheel. This is a ‘wheel of fortune’ split into nine sections. You can win bonus spins on either Fluffy Favourites or Irish Luck. The maximum amount of spins you can win is 500. You may also win £10 in Amazon vouchers, the chance to spin again or you may win nothing at all.

If you do win bonus spins then any winnings need to be wagered 65 times over before you can cash them out. The maximum amount of money you can win is £8 per ten bonus spins, and the maximum overall you can cash out is £250.
You can only use any bonus spins you win on the slot(s) that are nominated. When you are working through your requirements any wagers on blackjack, roulette, all other casino games, video poker, and progressive jackpot slots make no contribution. You cannot use any bonus funds on bingo.
All remaining money is transferred over to your cash balance once wagering has been completed. If you attempt to make a withdrawal of bonus funds or winnings before you have met wagering requirements then your bonus money and any winnings derived thereof will be removed from your account. This offer is only open to Charming Bingo UK players.
While the chance of winning 500 bonus spins is a great deal here, we are not in favour of the ‘risk’ of winning nothing at all via the Mega Wheel as part of this deal.

You may use the Mega Wheel again and again at Charming Bingo, as all you need to do is make a minimum deposit in order to obtain a further spin.
The VIP scheme here is automatically open to all members and is split over five levels, from base level to ‘Black’ level. Each tier receives a daily cashback bonus plus the chance to win extra bonus spins with each deposit made. There’s also the chance to celebrate with an extra bingo bonus awarded to you on your birthday!
The games covered are 75-ball bingo and 90-ball bingo. The Charming Bingo bingo site has rooms open at all times, including two free bingo rooms. One is for casual members and the other is for people that have take a step up in the VIP ranks. Both offer bingo cards for free where you can still win cash prizes.
There are also jackpot bingo rooms for you to look out for. They are only open occasionally but you will receive plenty of advanced warning, and you can even pay for cards in advance. Don’t worry if you then go and forget to play when the room’s open as your cards will still be marked for you, and any prizes they win will be paid to your account.
Withdrawals are allowed via any method you’ve previously deposited from, aside from Paysafecard. You can withdraw any amount you wish over £10, but all withdrawals under £30 are subject to a £2.50 withdrawal fee. There’s a 72 hour pending period, and then a one-to-three working day period before your money is in your account.
The withdrawal times are fairly standard, but we think the £2.50 withdrawal fee for withdrawals under £30 is a little mean.
Charming Bingo does try and create a sense of community spirit but at the moment it seems a little thwarted by a lack of players. There’s only one bingo room that’s open on a regular basis, and that’s the ‘Lucky Stars’ bingo room where tickets are available for between £0.01 and £0.05. Despite these low prices we never found more than a dozen players in the room at any one time, and most of those were not of a chatty nature.
There are more players to be found in the ‘Fair & Square’ and ‘Pay Day Jackpot’ bingo rooms, but these games were only played periodically.
One feature we did like is the ‘trophy’ gamification element. Here you are given a task that allows you to unlock a trophy. This could be, for example, to make a deposit using PayPal. You win trophies to unlock levels, and each new level you attain you achieve one bonus spin on the Charming Bingo Mega Wheel.
There’s also a brief section on ‘Lucky Charms’ such as four-leaf clovers at the site, but that’s as hard as Charming Bingo works currently to create a community feel.
If you go hunting for the Charming Bingo app then you are not likely to come up trumps as there isn’t one! However, that’s not to say that there’s no Charming Bingo mobile app, because there is!
If you are confused by this news then allow us to enlighten you. Jumpman Gaming have so engineered their online bingo software to work out the device you are currently viewing their site on. So, if you head to Charming Bingo on your desktop PC or laptop, then you will find yourself at the Charming Bingo desktop site. If you use your tablet or smartphone, then you will find yourself at the Charming Bingo mobile site.
Because of this clever bit of kit, the Charming Bingo site will work flawlessly on all mobiles and tablets, including any powered by iOS, Android or other operating systems. It is likely though that you will need wi-fi or 4G connection to the internet for the best mobile Charming Bingo experience.
There’s lots that’s charming about Charming Bingo, but there is also lots that we are less than enamoured with. We do like the Mega Wheel deal (aside from the chance of winning absolutely nothing), and the fact that you can earn your additional spins on the wheel during your time at this site. The ‘trophy’ gamification system gets a thumbs up too.
However, we don’t like that £2.50 fee on withdrawals under £30 at all, and we think that Charming Bingo needs to work on the community aspect. To put it simply, they need to have more bingo rooms open and more gaming options in order to attract more players.
So, with this in mind we are concluding our Charming Bingo review by awarding it three stars out of five. We feel Charming Bingo is heading in the right direction, but that there’s definite room for improvement!
