Pixie Bingo is one of the newest online bingo sites from Cassava Enterprises Limited (888), and there are many unique and improved features that help it stand out from the rest of its family members such as Costa, Circus Bingo and City Bingo. With its magical kingdom theme, exclusive rooms and prizes, and impressive array of slots and scratch cards, plus an attractive 500% welcome bonus, it’s becoming the most talked about gaming website of the year. Keep reading to find out whether our reviewer fell under Pixie’s spell.
Pixie Bingo uses an enchanting fairy and pixie theme with plenty of bold yellow and green colours and cute imagery. One of the first things we noticed about the website is that its design is completely different from most Cassava bingo sites. For example, the main menu is situated on the left-hand side rather than across the top, and the advert for the welcome bonus takes up less than a third of the homepage so that you can see everything else that’s on offer. We also like that the previous day’s jackpot total is clearly displayed as well as a list of the latest winners and the number of roomies who are currently online. The only improvement we’d make is to rename the ‘Play Now’ buttons to ‘Register Now’ so that it’s more obvious how to go about signing up.
For a moment, we got very excited about the 24/7 customer support options as the ‘Contact Us’ page states that you can contact an agent directly via live chat by clicking the question mark in the bottom-right of the screen. However, it appears that the service hasn’t been implemented as we were unable to find the elusive question mark. Therefore, there are currently three ways to get help: telephone, email, and the Live Help room.
It’s great to see that Cassava has blessed its newest offering with exclusive promotions, the first of which the welcome package. To get your hands on it, you’ll need to make your first deposit of £10 or more, and you’ll be credited with a 400% bingo bonus, a 100% games bonus, and 10 free spins to use on the popular Fluffy Too slot. N.B., the maximum bonus you can claim is £200. You also get to play the Pixie’s Dust game free-of-charge where you’ll need to match pixies to build your score and win a bonus prize. Finally, you’ll receive ten free cards for the £1k Fairy Fountain game. If you win while playing with your welcome bonuses, you must fulfil the 4x bingo and 30x games wagering requirements before you can make a withdrawal.
Another exclusive Pixie promotion is Cheeky Challenges. Simply complete all five challenges (such as refer a friend and spend £10 on the Tornado Farm Escape slot), and you’ll be given the chance to win a bonus of up to £20. There’s also a monthly £1k Fairy Fountain game which you can enter for free providing you’ve deposited that month, and unique rooms including Fabulous Friday, Golden Garden, and Mystical Monday. There’s a section for slots promotions, but last time we looked, there weren’t any offers listed.
Although the welcome bonus wagering requirements are a little higher than we’d like, we have to acknowledge the effort that’s gone into creating exciting and fresh promotions and freebies.
Pixie Bingo runs on Dragonfish software, which is easy to use even if you’ve never played at other Dragonfish sites, and makes it simple to pre-purchase game cards and view the daily schedule.
For a relatively new site, Pixie attracts a considerable number of players. At 1PM on a Monday, there were over 700 roomies online. There are also chat hosts present in each room who we found most welcoming and friendly.
You get to play the exclusive Pixie’s Dust game every time you top up your account with £10 or more, and you can win bonuses of up to £1. There are also five non-networked exclusive bingo rooms which offer juicy guaranteed jackpots as big as £50,000.
Although you can play 90-ball and 75-ball games, there’re no five-line games available which is unusual for a Dragonfish site. However, you can still take part in Cassava’s most popular networked jackpot games like Sure Win and Grab a Grand.
There’s a Mobile page on the main menu that explains how to play at Pixie on your mobile phone or tablet. You’ll need an HTML5-friendly web browser and a reliable internet connection as all of the games can be played instantly via Pixie’s mobile website. Everything has been designed to fit a wide range of modern devices, so whether you’re playing on a 10” tablet or a smartphone with a 4” screen, the games and lobby will adapt as necessary.
Pixie uses 128-bit SSL encryption to protection your payment card details, and employs a Random Number Generator (RNG) to ensure its games give random results. The site is regulated and licensed by the UK Gambling Commission, and displays the “eCOGRA – Safe and Fair” mark. You can read about safety and security in further detail, as well as information regarding Fair Play and Responsible Gaming by clicking the links at the bottom of any page.
It’s a shame that Cassava Enterprises chose not to include 5-line games when commissioning Pixie Bingo, as the standard 90-ball and 75-ball rooms feel somewhat lacking without them. That said, there’s still a good selection of rooms to choose from including many Pixie exclusives and free bingo rooms. The slots, scratch cards, and casino games might be the same as most other Dragonfish sites, but there’s a sufficient stock of them to keep you entertained for a long time.
You can fund your account using Neteller, Paypal, Entropay, Paysafecard, Wire Transfer, MasterCard, Visa, or Maestro, and withdrawal requests are processed after 48 hours.
The VIP scheme is open to all players who’ve spent at least £1 on game cards. There are four tiers (Pixie, Elf, Fairy, and Unicorn), and the amount you need to wager to move up each level seems pretty reasonable. All four levels gain access to free jackpot bingo games and free spins while the top three tiers get monthly cashback and free game cards worth £10.
Pixie Bingo is one of Cassava’s most unique sites to-date. Despite the lack of 5-line games, it boasts lots of likeable and exclusive features, a fair VIP system that doesn’t require you to spend a small fortune to benefit from its perks, an excellent mobile site, and a large community of happy players.
