Cupcake Bingo launched in June 2015. If branding at online bingo sites can seem a little thin sometimes, Cupcake go all out with a sweet, sugary look and icing colours everywhere. It’s a bright and well-designed site, perfect for tablets, and puts its mobile offering right on the front page.
Cupcake Bingo is another addition to the vast selection of Cassava/Dragonfish/888 sites. That means it’s backed by a big name and has proven games – 90-ball and 75-ball – that many players love. However, it also means that Cupcake will have to stand out from the crowd to make bingo players ditch their regular sites.
Joining Cupcake Bingo is very easy. A three-stage form collects your details and sets up your account, with an autocomplete for your address. If you’re a member of other Cassava sites you may have to dream up a new nickname, but it shouldn’t be a problem with creating an account. Things look much better when you take a look at the selection of games available. There are a lot of them and the choice is nicely presented.
The lobby divides a big selection of bingo games into “live bingo”, “cheap and cheerful”, “big jackpots” and “mega jackpots”. The game rooms are described on tabs telling you the house prize, progressive jackpot, time to the next game, chat host name and number of players.
Slots have their own tab and they’re nicely laid out by category. There are many of the big name favourites, including Fluffy Favourites, Shaman’s Dream, and Starburst. There are plenty of progressive jackpot machines and casino games including live dealer games.
The game room is functional and keeps the cupcake colour theme going. The chat room is to the right, with a list of instant games above it. Tickets are selected and played in the large central window, above that are the latest game details. At the very top of the room is where you’ll find your account details.
It’s a good, functional design of the sort you’ll see at plenty of other sites – if it ain’t broke…
The chat hosts seem to know what they’re doing and players get on well. Despite a busy room, the chat host we engaged with asked us to a private chat to answer our question and gave us plenty of information.
Cupcake Bingo Summary
There’s a lot to like in Cupcake Bingo whether you’ve got a sweet tooth or not. The games are good and come from a trusted brand. The chat scene’s friendly and fun too. There’s plenty of scope to find a room that suits you and plenty of big prize potential wherever and whenever you look. If you wanted to search for something to criticise, the help on the site isn’t brilliantly signposted, but with chat hosts ready to step in it shouldn’t be a problem. It’s a very nice site and well worth adding to your bingo menu as a sweet treat.
Cupcake Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Extra Welcome Bonus at Cupcake Bingo
Something that stands out as soon as you arrive at Cupcake Bingo is an extra gamble in the welcome bonus package, with the chance to win a bigger bonus with a spin of “the Cupcake Wheel”. It’s a gimmick that’s used on other sites, as you can tell at Cupcake Bingo because the text explaining the offer still refers to sister site, Gossip Bingo. That’s not a great sign. The offer is good though.
Game Options at Cupcake Bingo
From the game room at Cupcake Bingo you can easily design an experience that’s right for you. The sound can be turned on or off by clicking the icon at the top right of the screen. That area of the screen is also where you find the cog icon with full game options. There you can tailor the room appearance, turn autodaubing on or off, order your cards differently and turn off 3TG notification. There are a range of chat options and a choice of dauber symbol too.
There are progressive jackpots in both 75- and 90-ball games, look on the game preview cards to check if your game includes one. Jackpot games have their own tabs for big jackpots and mega jackpots. There are daily big jackpot games and several mega jackpots each month.
There’s a separate tab for free games. However, you’ll need to deposit to access any of them and four of the rooms are linked to the site’s loyalty scheme, with bigger wins and more games as you climb up the ladder.
Newbies Free Bingo
You can play free bingo as a new player at Cupcake Bingo as long as you’ve made a first deposit. That first deposit opens up a free room for three days. Each time you make a £10 deposit you will get access to another free room with a big jackpot. There are four free bingo rooms, each one open to one level – bronze, silver, gold and platinum – of the loyalty scheme.
The promotions page at Cupcake Bingo is packed. Most of the offers though are big prize games. There’s nothing to involve players beyond the game room, which is a nice offer and a way for players to really feel part of an active site.
