Sugar Bingo Review
Updated On Friday 27th June 2014
New Player Offer: 300% Bonus
Dragonfish - Moon wagering terms and conditions will apply
When we first heard about Sugar Bingo we were quite excited as it offered new players something different. Instead of the standard £5 or £10 first deposit requirement, newbies could instead give the site a try for just £1. This in our view was revolutionary as it's a lot more tempting to risk a quid than a tenner.
However the powers that be at Sugar Bingo decided that this opening offer was far too exclusive for us to tell you about. So unfortunately that offer has passed and the site has reverted back to the standard welcome offers that all others have. Has this left us with a sour taste in our mouths? And will this influence our review? Yes is the answer on both counts.
Sisters United In Bingo
Sugar Bingo is the latest addition to the United Bingo Network which includes Moon, Polo and Robin Hood. It operates on the Dragonfish/Cassava platform but is not part of the bigger group. In essence it's simply a version of it's sister site covered in sweets and sugar. Underneath there's nothing new! That's not to say you shouldn't choose to play at Sugar.
300% Welcome Offer
As mentioned new players now can't take advantage of the £1 welcome offer but instead have a choice of three deposit offers. Choose to deposit from £5 to £20 to receive a 300% to 350% bonus. There are free cards for a £10,000 sliding jackpot game (£2000 guaranteed) should you choose the £20 option.
The site itself is pretty bland. The backdrop is a Candyland featuring a Gingerbread man, but the main home area resembles a poor version of Windows 8 with it's promotional blocks. We're not over impressed but at least it's possible to quickly see the many promotions that Sugar shares with Moon, Robin Hood etc. These include Self Made Millionaire, Payday Bingo, Bingo X Multiplier and Lucky Penny. There's also "On The House" games which sound like they should be free but they're not. All Aboard The Sugar Train
Underneath the layers of sugar you'll find 75 and 90 ball games, free bingo and regular jackpots. On the slots front there's Millionaire Genie, Sugar Train, Fluffy Favourites, Robin Hood, Starburst and Jack Hammer. Surprisingly the sweetie themed slots don't get a top billing! Also the site doesn't offer the free Sweetieland slots tournaments that you can find playing at other Dragonfish sites.
Overall we're indifferent about this brand. It could have been exciting had they stuck with the welcome offer of £1 as that was new and different. As is they've simply taken away Robin Hood and replaced him with sugary treats. Is that good enough to excite the online bingo player - we don't think so. On a positive note the site do run exclusives from their Facebook page but we'd like to see more on their actual bingo site before we acquire a taste for Sugar.
