Charming Bingo Review
Charming Bingo became the 29th site to join the 15 Network powered by Jumpman. Launched in December 2015 the original site had a cherry theme. In fact we suspect the brand was meant to have been Cherry Bingo. However with Charming Bingo players are now inspired and motivated with selected charms like four leafed clovers, lucky dice and horseshoes. But is this brand a charming place to play slots and bingo? And is it really the self described "best site around"?
The site design of Charming Bingo is quite busy. There's plenty of things going on including images of lucky charms, a ubiqutious young lady and a rainbow. There's also a cherry in the background as a nod to the site's original theme. However charming to us means "pleasant or attractive". Charming just doesn't equate to lucky charms and it does feel like a theme is being shoe-horned into what may be perceived as a good name for a bingo brand.

Spinning the Mega Wheel gives you the chance to win up to 500 spins on slots such as Eyecon's Irish Luck and Fluffy Favourites. On a spin of the wheel you could also win Amazon vouchers.

Charming Bingo has recently updated it's bingo rooms to be Pragmatic Play's plu-in product. This means you can now play 75, 80 and 90 ball variations plust various jackpots. These are joined by Mutual Play's Bingo Millions 90 ball game and instant win versions of the 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo meets lotto game. Occasionally the Mega Bingo Millions Jackpot room is accessible too. Ticket prices are reasonable and because the new rooms are more active the jackpots are better. Pre-buy is also available.
Charming Bingo Promotions
To celebrate it's launch, way back in 2015, Charming were offering the chance to win a holiday for to Greece. Details about the prize were a bit limited and the promotion ran for over a year. Unfortunately that was the start and end of Charming offering anything exclusive to their players. The promotions that you will find at Charming at those ran by the network. These include free bingo, the Fair & Square jackpot game and Pay Day Jackpot that plays on the last day of every month.
Wagering is rewarded at Charming Bingo with spins of the Mega Wheel and the acquisiton of trophies. Get enough trophies by completing various tasks (playing slots, winning games etc) and you earn a reward. The reward is another spin of the Mega Wheel. If you're not a fan of Mega Wheel bonuses then you might want to find somewhere else to try. Finally cashback is the other main offer at Charming. Newbies are offered double cashback on their first 31 days play whilst regulars can earn up to 10% based on VIP status.
Charming Bingo is a charming enough place to play provided you prefer the slots over the bingo. Unfortunately the Jumpman platform is very slots orientated and the bingo rooms are just too quiet. They also lack variation when compared to Virtue Fusion. We'd like to see free bingo at least as an incentive for new players although the arrival of Bingo Millions is at least a minor positive. Jumpman have upped their game in the bingo stakes but more needs to be done.
With an exclusive holiday prize promotion at launch Charming did have some headway over other similar sites. However there are now 140 plus brands on the Jumpman Slots Network and 15 Network. A page detailing the virtues of various Lucky Charms isn't unique enough for us to suggest signing up here over a.n.other. In fact we think you'd be charmed by alternative options that have better bingo rooms and promotions. The recent addition of a £2.50 withdrawal fee just emphasises that suggestion.
