We had such high hopes for this site when we saw that the homepage actually lived up to its classy name, but alas, it’s just another cookie cutter Dragonfish network site – just a little better dressed than the rest!
That said, there’s a good selection of bingo games, promotions, a decent loyalty program, and it’s reliable and secure… just like all the other Dragonfish sites.
Plus if you decide to make your first deposit today, you will be rewarded with 150% extra, up to the value of £150. On top of that, if you are a bit cautious about depositing, you can easily try out the site and play a few games for free before deciding to commit.
The home page is a well-designed introduction to the site, with a crisp and clean styling, plus expected touches of sparkle and bubbles, and banners and tiles promoting all the big deals, featured games and promotions, and almost a third of the page dedicated to enticing new members.
But it’s not a good sign when the homepage is the highlight of the site! Once you head into the rest of the pages, which are easy to navigate around, you’ll find less bling and more of the same old Dragonfish thing!
Having said that, if you’re new to online bingo, you’ll enjoy all the promotions, bingo games, and slots, because you won’t have seen them a hundred times before! If you are an old hat, you might want to look for greener pastures.
The lobby is easy to navigate around, and you’ll find all you need here.
The bingo rooms are fun, exciting and you’ll never get bored!
Bingo & Slots Games
In the bingo lobby you’ll find a left hand column of tabs which will easily take you to the game or promo you want to play, or just select from the classic 90 ball and the American 75 ball options, with coverall and progressive jackpots, plus the popular team bingo tournaments, and High 5 Bingo.
The bingo room is set up in a user-friendly style, so it’s easy to navigate around, simple to select cards, and there’s a good choice of mini games to play while you’re waiting. You can interact as much or as little as you like in the chat room, but they’re a pretty friendly bunch here.
If you’re particular about the way things are, you can even tailor the page to suit your particular style, with tools to adjust sound effects, caller styles, and even daubing appearances. 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 a reasonable selection of slots and other games, with most of the latest and greatest here, as well as a few casino games including Roulette and Blackjack.
Bonuses & Promotions
The usual set of Dragonfish promotions are on parade here, with the popular Happy Hour where you get cheap games, BOGOF options, and pub quizzes, there are guaranteed jackpots every month in Zodiac Bingo, slot fans will love the Sweetie Land tournament, and earn up to 2 million Loyalty Points in the appropriately named 2 Million Race.
There is also 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 get £10 for every friend you refer that signs up.
There is a Facebook page, but with no posts since 2012 despite the potential gold mine any social network page can have, it’s not really worth following.
There are plenty of FAQs to answer most of your queries, but if you’re really stumped you can call a freephone number within the UK, or you can contact customer support 24/7 from the help room when you’re logged into the site.
Champagne Bingo proves you can’t judge a book by its cover, as first impressions are of a well designed and fresh site, but under the surface, it’s just another facade for more of the Dragonfish suite.
But we’ve said it before, and we’ll no doubt say it again, Dragonfish know their stuff, and there is some good gameplay here, decent promotions, an engaged community, and of course, some reasonable prizes up for grabs.
Personally, if I was going to play at a Dragonfish site, I would pick a brand like Robin Hood or Polo Bingo over this site, both provide superior bonuses and promotions and just have an all round better feel to them. At the same time, this isn’t the worst website in the world, it’s just that there are potentially better opportunities out there which are more valuable, giving you a better chance of a win.
