Sophie’s Bingo Review

Who is Sophie and why is she so in love with bingo? Why, Sophie is Sophie, your amiable and amicable hostess who would love nothing more than to show you around her site before leaving you to it so you can immerse yourself in 90, 75-ball and all the other kinds of bingo to be savoured here. Blonde haired, pale-skinned and young, Sophie doesn’t look like your archetypal bingo player, but that’s the beauty of online bingo: you never quite know who you’re playing against.

The homepage header at Sophie’s Bingo features a graphic of an urban skyline at night complete with a few stars twinkling merrily in the background. It’s a nice look that’s let down only by the narrowness of the site. Remember about ten years ago how all websites were skinny affairs that didn’t make full use of the page width because they weren’t responsively designed, and there was a risk that someone with a small screen might not be able to view the entire site if the full width was used? Yeah, well Sophie’s Bingo is one of them.

About Sophie’s Bingo

The skinniest little bingo site on the web, Sophie’s Bingo is further let down by the fact that entire sections of the site are dependant on Adobe Flash to run. Not only does this seem wholly unnecessary, but it restricts the availability of the site to players. If you’re on mobile you almost certainly won’t be able to access Sophie’s Bingo, while if you’re on desktop and are using the Chrome browser, you aren’t likely to fare any better either. Normally this would be described as a shame, but in truth you aren’t missing out on anything here.

Despite its friendly protagonist, Sophie’s Bingo really doesn’t look like the sort of place you’d want to linger for longer than about three seconds. That’s how long it should take you to assess the narrow gauge website, eye the absent Flash sections and conclude “Thanks but no thanks”. Assuming you’re using a browser that loads Sophie’s Bingo perfectly however and you decide to stick around and sign up, there’s plenty of bingo waiting for you plus slots and mini games at this Cassava Enterprises site that holds gaming licenses issued in Great Britain and Gibraltar.

Sophie’s Style of Banking

Cassava Enterprises sites are historically shockingly bad when it comes to providing deposit and withdrawal information and, given how the rest of the site looks, you could be forgiven for thinking the worst when it comes to to Sophie’s Bingo. Your preconceptions will be proven to be absolutely correct. There is a link at the bottom of the homepage marked Banking but clicking on it will simply lead you to a page stuffed with dozens of paragraphs of terms and conditions. Your only means of getting anywhere is by performing a page search. Type in ‘deposit’ and you’ll discover that there are 101 instances of the word on the page. This could take a while.

After much clicking and scrolling, you’ll discover that the minimum deposit on the site is £5 and beyond that, well, who knows what’s beyond that, cos no sane person is going to keep scrolling through all that legalese. Far easier just to glance at the payment provider logos in the site footer and conclude, rightly or wrongly, that deposit and withdrawal options include MasterCard, Visa, Entropay, PayPal, Paysafecard and Neteller.

Sophie’s Smooth Bonuses?

There’s up to £100 in bonus cash waiting to be claimed when you make your first deposit at Sophie’s Bingo. What percentage of welcome bonus is this? The site doesn’t specify. It could be 10%, 100% or 500%. The obvious solution would be to click through to the promotions page at Sophie’s Bingo where the answer will be found, right? Wrong. This is a Cassava Enterprises site, remember, and they don’t really do proper promotions pages. Sure, there’s a page with that name, but it never provides any satisfactory answers. For one thing, the welcome bonus bigged up on the homepage isn’t so much as mentioned here.

Instead, you’ll find mention of such things as Happy Hour which operates between 4pm and 6pm every Monday (but no details about what this involves). Other generic Cassava Enterprises promotions shouted out here include Weekender, which sees £700 in bingo prizes dispensed at weekends, and an occasional big game (or is it a prize draw?) that dispenses £10,000. In case this review hasn’t made it abundantly clear, the promotions page at all Cassava Enterprises sites – 100s of them – is awful. Every. Single. One.

Clear Playing Guides

Sophie’s Bingo fares slightly better when it comes to explaining bingo at least. One thing that all sites from this operator have is a clear playing guide to the game. If you’re new to bingo, you can find comprehensive instructions to mastering 90, 75-ball and High Five bingo here. More importantly, you can play all of these games, which operate daily from early till late. The usual Games page that appears at the usual Cassava Enterprises bingo sites explains the nature of the games. 90-ball is the most common variant of the game, but 75-ball also enjoys a wide audience.

The best way to get a feel for the sort of sums that can be won from some of the games is by heading back to the promotions page, which is useless for displaying promotions but more useful for identifying the names of some of the site’s games. There’s a monthly £1,000 game called Grab a Grand and there’s also one called Zodiac Bingo in which there’s £1,111 to be won. Beyond that, you might want to keep a look out for the progressive jackpot games which offer prizes far higher than those to be won in the coverall jackpot games. In the best case, you could win several thousand pounds from a progressive game like Diamonds are Forever.

Sophie’s Bingo Conclusion

In case the body of this review didn’t make it abundantly clear, Sophie’s Bingo is a poor site that offers nothing that might entice you into signing up. Sure, there are certainly worse bingo sites out there, but that should hardly be cause for celebration. In the current year, a Flash-heavy, overly narrow, badly designed, poorly explained site just isn’t going to cut it. Where’s the banking information? Where’s the information about the welcome bonus? Where’s the proper promotions page?

Where’s the sense of community? The welcoming friendly vibes? All posted missing and unaccounted for. The bingo games themselves probably work okay on desktop, and so will the mini games and slots. Still, you really don’t wanna play at Sophie’s Bingo if you can help it. Not when there are so many sites available that are way better than this sorry excuse for a bingo site.
