Glitter Bingo is another one of the hundreds of Cassava bingo sites, powered by Dragonfish software. You have seen these sites before, sites like Costa Bingo, Moon Bingo and Robin Hood Bingo all use this exact same software. The only difference really is the unique promotions each of the sites run and the visual appeal of the website.
When it comes to those factors, Glitter Bingo ranks somewhere in the middle. They are not a cookie cutter site that offers absolutely nothing of any value, but at the same time, they can’t match the kind of value industry heavyweights provide.
If I am being 100% honest, I feel like the site was designed by a child and has a very amateurish look to it. After looking around a bit, the design grew on me slightly, but in all honesty, I wasn’t a fan. The colour scheme is rather dark but features the stereotypical bingo colours of purple and pink.
The headline offer has recently been upgraded, where they now provide you with a 300% first deposit bonus. This means if you deposit £10, you will get £30 extra and a total of £40 to play with. Not too bad!

Bonuses and Promotions
Free Evening Bag Promotion: Make a £10 or more deposit and you will get sent a free evening bag. You can choose from black, gold or pinkcolours . The only downside to this is that the site does not show exactly what bag you get. Call me skeptical, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it’s not going to be a high-quality bag.
- 300% Welcome Bonus: This bonus is larger than quite a few of other Cassava bingo sites. Deposit just £10 now and you will get £30 extra free and a total of £40 of playable funds.
- No Lose Bingo: Play every Tuesday from 8-9 PM and play 20 different games for £20 each. If you don’t win, the money you lose will be returned back to your account.
- Penny Bingo: What site would be complete without a selection of penny bingo games. The games are available on Monday, Thursday and Saturday nights.
Forfeit Bonus Warning
If you register for an account and don’t immediately enter in your debit or credit card details at sign-up you will forfeit the right to claim your evening bag or 300% welcome bonus. This is something I really don’t like about this site or any site for that matter. You should be able to register without putting in your card details, have a look round and then decide whether you want to make a deposit. Penalizing someone for not immediately funding their account is pretty draconian and obviously, something that is a major negative factor.
Slots and Bingo Games
Granted the site has both 75 ball and 90 ball games, however, if you play during weekdays you will be very much disappointed with what’s on offer. Quite simply, the bingo site is not very busy and the prize pots are pitiful. This is why I prefer the larger Dragonfish sites like Wink and Costa, because no matter when you decide to play, you will be able to compete for massive jackpot prizes – I wish I could say the same about Glitter Bingo.
When it comes to games, there is a ‘free bingo for all’ lounge which allows all players to play free bingo for real money, no deposit required. That said, prizes are tiny of £1 and you are capped on the amount you can with from those games before they confiscate your earnings.
When it comes to slots games, however, this is one of the areas that Cassava/Dragonfish sites definitely excel. You will find a wide range of games, including leading titles like Zuma Slots, Fluffy Favourites, Sugar Train and Irish Luck. Plus if it’s your thing, you can play some instant win games and casino side games.
Promotion codes do not give you anything extra at Glitter Bingo. By registering you will automatically be entitled to the 300% welcome bonus and all the other promotions on offer at the site. Please do remember that you are required to enter your card details straight away, otherwise, you will not gain access to these freebies.
Is Glitter Bingo a bad website? Short answer – no. That said, I would not choose to play at this site compared to some of the larger players in the industry that I mentioned earlier.
The used to run a free evening bag promotion, which has now been discontinued. That offer was basically the only unique thing about this website and they have recently got rid of it. Having said that, the new player offer provides some reasonable value, yet at the same time, there are some more rewarding deposit bonuses out there as well.
The biggest downside, however, is with regards to the jackpots available and player volumes, which are incredibly low during non-peak hours. This stops me from making it my go-to bingo site and would lead me to give this site a pass in favour of better alternatives.
