Cheeky being is not looking for new players
Cheeky Bingo was amongst the first set of online bingo sites that appeared in the UK, but it got left behind at some point when it came to maintenance of all the behind the scenes requirements. Rather than spend time making changes, the climate in the UK regarding bingo means that Entain has taken the decision to no longer actively promote the site to seek new players and concentrate on it’s other brands such as Gala Bingo, Ladbrokes and Coral. Existing players will be able to access the site and contacted and advised of next steps if they decide to close the site.
The following is retained for reference only…
A Quick Look at Cheeky Bingo
Cheeky Bingo UK is owned by Entain, the same company that manages famous sports, bingo, and casino brands such as Ladbrokes, Coral and Foxy Bingo.
The brand was launched in 2006 by the Cashcade Group, and over the years, it has seen several exciting makeovers and improvements. Now run by owner Entain the site received its latest update in late 2021, waving goodbye to its plum-haired cartoon mascot and welcoming a pop art-inspired young female in its place. The operator has also replaced the brand logo with a simple purple bingo ball and amended the site’s tone-of-voice to reflect and engage a more modern audience.
Today, Cheeky Bingo offers a vast range of online bingo variants, as well as hot-off-the-shelf slots and casino games suitable for everyone.
It’s also the sister site of the ever-popular Foxy Bingo brand, which means that it offers a fantastic bingo game that’s based on the hit US TV show, Friends and the innovative Cash Out Bingo.
In addition, Cheeky operates a great rewards scheme and offers both bingo and slot jackpots.

How do I upload my ID to Cheeky Bingo?
All UK-licensed gambling operators must, by law, perform verification checks to confirm their customers’ names, ages, and addresses. The same checks also help the operator to prevent identity theft and fraud.
So, when you join the site, you will be asked to supply two key pieces of information.
Valid identity documents include passports, driving licences, and national identity cards while proof of address documents include driving licences, utility bills, and bank statements.
You can verify your account by upload a scanned image or photo of your ID documents, and you can expect your documents to be reviewed and processed within 24 hours.
