Chit Chat Bingo Review
Chit Chat Bingo has been around for several years and has had quite a checkered history. It emerged from the original Gala Bingo site and quickly became the flagship brand in the St Minver stable. St Minver became G2Tech/IGT and in 2016/17 bingo was dropped from that platform. This left Chit Chat homeless along with stablemates, Bid and Bingozino. All three, however, are now established on the Dragonfish Network alongside other brands including Pink Ribbon and Bingo Ireland. Chit Chat recently was named the "Best Dragonfish Bingo Site" at Bingoport's 2020 Awards.
The Chit Chat Bingo site itself is pretty basic. It's dominated by the welcome offer and other promotions. The background is a welcoming shade of purple whilst the remainder of the site is made up of a handful of featured slots. One thing we do like is that Chit Chat have a bingo schedule on their homepage. Instantly we can see the activity and jackpots on offer in the main rooms.

Other free bingo rooms are available but you'll need to be a regular depositor to qualify for these particular games. Free bingo rooms include Quids In, On The House and Freebie.
Chit Chat Bingo Promotions
Chit Chat Bingo is pretty much like every other Dragonfish Network brand that is currently in operation. It has 75 and 90 ball games. These include Chatterbox, 90's Extreme, Mystery Jackpots, Big Fat 10 and High 5. In August 2017, a VIP bingo room was opened at Chit Chat. The Royal Room is open on selected days only and offers qualifying players access to special bingo games, free spins on slot games and many other prizes. We're told that the opening times will expand over time!
As well as this new room, there are other exclusives (although these are shared with Bingozino and Bid). The bonus calendar gives players the chance to get bonuses, spins and tickets every day of the month. Complete the tasks shown to get your reward - terms do apply. Chit Chat also like to run a monthly promo. They've bosted prize games and tournaments in the past especially around seasonal events like Christmas.
Like many brands these days, slots are in the spotlight at Chit Chat. Among the top games are Fluffy Favourites, Starburst, Enchanted Prince, Rainbow Riches, Fluffy Too and Guns N Roses. If you love the slots and are a fan of bonuses then do check the Bonus Calendar as not all the offers are bingo specific. In fact most days there are games bonuses available. Most slots - and bingo rooms - are accessible via mobile and tablet. No app is required to play Chit Chat Bingo!
Given it's history, Chit Chat should really be up in the Foxy and Jackpotjoy league. They are slowly working their way back up the ladder and the accolades are evidence of this! The bonus calendar, VIP room and regular exclusives help Chit Chat stand out from it's Dragonfish rivals. The biggest hindrance is the Dragonfish platform. Whilst it's still good, it is limited and lacks in terms of variation of games and jackpots when compared to Virtue Fusion.
