Candy Shop Bingo Review - Site Reviews
Mid April 2015 saw the arrival of a rather sweet looking Candy Shop Bingo to the Dragonfish network. It’s a site that will certainly appeal to those with a sweet tooth and an eye from an impressive welcome bonus (at least at launch) but if we’re honest, the home page is maybe a little too sickly sweet. There’s candy treats aplenty shown around the design along with bingo balls and lollipops but does the gaming experience prove to be as sweet?
Candy Shop Bingo is operated by Cassava and the bingo games powered by the 888. The site itself is owned by Digital Blue who own a number of other pay to play sites online and previously owned Bingo Port before it’s sale to Quick Think Media.
It’s a quick and easy task to register to take a bite of the treats available at the site, within minutes you’ll be ready to sample the wares that this brand have to offer. The registration form features three sections, with no requirements to enter your financial details, and then your account has been created.
The Candy Creator At Candy Shop Bingo
Our first port of all was the Candy Collector and upon registration we were given two free coins. The coins are used to get candy from the machine and of you match three, you get bonuses.
Collect five of the rare rainbow candies that the machine has to offer and you could win a bonus of £200. Additionally, you have the option of how any bonus you win is split. The value of each bonus can be seen on a table at Candy Shop Bingo.
The Candy Shop Bingo Lobby
After you have finished with your welcome coins on the Candy Creator then your first port of call will be the lobby. It is from here that you can see all that Candy Shop Bingo has to offer by way of games.
Navigation is via a horizontal menu with several different tabs. Under each tab you’ll find the corresponding rooms or games. When it comes to bingo rooms, there is an abundance of information available about each:
- Room Name
- Ticket Price
- House Prize
- Number of Players
- Time Until Next Game
In The Rooms At Candy Shop Bingo
When you have chosen a room using the information available to find one that suits your game requirements and budget, simply click “Play Now” and you’ll be taken into the room.
The layout here is the same as you will have found at other sites using this software but for the novice player, we’ll explain the room. To the far left of the room you have your ticket buying options – quick buy and auto buy. This area changes to the call board when a game is in play.
The centre of the room shows your bingo tickets with details of the game prizes above.
The far right of the room hosts your chat room and a selection of instant win games. Some of these will open in the same window above chat whilst others open in a new window.
Candy Shop Bingo Promotions
When it comes to promotions at Candy Shop Bingo you are offered those that are popular across the Dragonfish network alongside those that are ‘exclusive’ to the Quick Think Media brands – the best of both bingo worlds if you like!
The free bingo offered here is the same as the network with three days free access to one room with £1 jackpots every eight minutes from 9am until 6pm the moment that you register. Details of all the free play games available can be found under the loyalty program.
Candy Shop Bingo is very similar to the likes of Lucky Charm and Bubble Bonus Bingo that we have seen from Quick Think Media and Gaming Realms on the Dragonfish network. However, the extra features and increased bonuses make it a more attractive option than your average Dragonfish brand.
