Candis Bingo is perhaps not surprisingly associated with the women’s monthly magazine of the same name, which is an odd fit for a brand that promotes health, happiness, and family life – but who are we to judge?!
Registration is a piece of cake, with a welcome bonus of 100% on your first deposit – but there are a few free games to play before you pay, although most require a Loyalty status from previous deposits. All the major payment options are accepted, and the site guarantees that it is 100% safe and secure.
Another site from the Dragonfish empire, but that’s not obvious at first glance, it’s only when you see the same games and promotions as all the other software giant’s network, that you’d notice. The homepage is designed in a similar style to the magazine and its online website, and in fact, looks a lot like a magazine cover, but although it’s clean, it’s a tad too busy but gives you an insight into what to expect from the rest of the pages.
Decent gameplay, easy to navigate, good prizes, pretty engaged community, but just didn’t get the theme to be honest!
Bonuses and Promotions
On top of the welcome bonus, Candis Bingo has the usual suspects when it comes to Promotions, with the ‘eggception’ of an Easter Egg Hunt special given the time of the year we tested it.
There’s the ever-popular Happy Hour with loads of cheap games and fun pub quizzes, The Big £10,000 with a chance to win the aforementioned £10,000 and you can boost those loyalty points with the 2 Million Race.
Candis Bingo has the Bingo Friends Forever loyalty scheme where you earn bonus points by depositing, playing, and getting involved with promotions and chat room games, and you can also get £10 for every friend you recommend that signs up.
Bingo and Slots Games
Once signed up and in the lobby, you can check out all the games going on in the bingo rooms, and there’s a good selection of the traditional 90 ball and the American 75 pattern ball options, with coverall and progressive jackpots, a few good team bingo tournaments, and High 5 Bingo for something new.
One of the major draws of the Dragonfish suite is the £1 million jackpot coverall that happens three times a week – and you can pre-buy for this so you don’t miss out. Like all sites in the Dragonfish troop, you’ll find the Candis Bingo rooms in the same layout, with card selection on the left-hand panel with an easy auto-buy option. All the information you need about the games, your details, and other players in the room are there at a glance, and there are plenty of mini-games available to play and keep you amused.
If you like things to be a certain way, you’ll like the tool that tailors the page to suit you, with options to alter sound effects, the caller styles, and even your preference for the look of your dauber. The chat room section has loads of emoticons so you can quickly express yourself if you like that sort of thing!
Bingo cards cost from as little as 1p, and you can buy up to a maximum of 24 cards at any one time.
There’s not a massive selection of other games available here, but what they do have are most of the popular current ones on the market. You’ll find the Fluffy Favourites range, Sugar Train, Temple of Isis, and Monopoly, plus Roulette and Blackjack in the table games arena.
There are loads of great chat games here, with everything from 75 ball bingo tag, to bingo trivia, and Buddy Bingo, if these all sound foreign to you just ask the chat host and they’ll let you know how to play.
If you need help, there’s a good list of FAQs in the help section, or there’s 24-hour online support which can be contacted from within the game rooms too.

Candis Bingo is a middle of the road site, which has no connection to the women’s magazine apart from its name and visuals – so it seems a bit redundant. In today’s industry, the implementation and design of this site below par. On top of that, the bonuses and promotions are not particularly rewarding and don’t really entice me to sign-up.
