What we recommend instead
Rap Chic Bingo Verdict
Rap Chic Bingo has a lot of fun touches like the funky design and the randomised bonus round, plus you get some nice software and offers, but it lacks anything really punchy to draw you in. Most of what’s here can be found on any Jumpman site. Check it out for bonuses and other freebies, maybe you’ll end up rapping to the beat of bingo wins!
Design & Usability
Rap Chic Bingo’s site design is very bright and fun, with a rich purple background and a trendy young woman (presumably a rap chic?!) as a mascot. The usual animated wheel seen on many Jumpman online bingo sites is presented like the disc on a DJ’s turntable, a nice little idea.
The site’s layout is straightforward and you can hop from one area to the next easily, but many pages feel a little empty, lacking artwork or colour. The registration form could be clearer, but won’t take long to complete and doesn’t push you to register a card.
Software & Gameplay
The lobby loads fairly quickly and it has the same rich purple scheme as the main site. The top half is filled with offers and your personal controls, but the bottom half is a little bland, having no artwork for the bingo games.
Bingo rooms are a little bland here but easy enough to follow. They use the BINGO counter with five columns, which comes in handy for generating chat games. On the downside, hosts seem to be hard to find and the chat is very quiet.
Safety & Security
Rap Chic Bingo is fully licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, with licensing information viewable on the home page. The main site has an up-to-date security certificate and there is encryption for your payments.
There is a responsible gaming section on this site which details how to maintain control of your spending. The site’s fairness is guaranteed by the SQS logo.
Payments & Withdrawals
The site cashier is very simple here and really, it’s just a case of following a few icons. The minimum withdrawal is £30 which is a little high really, plus the site advises that withdrawals could take 7-14 working days!
There is a big downside here, however, in that the site only accepts cards. You can use Visa, MasterCard, Switch, Solo and Maestro credit and debit cards, but e-wallets users are stuck.
The help section is a bit poorly made, giving you a page of plain black text, which handily explains a lot of terminology, but it’s not well presented. The site can be contacted by email and telephone, or there’s an FAQ section for everyday problems.
There’s no indication of toll costs for the number or what hours it remains open, plus there’s no live chat feature here. A pretty poor setup. On the plus side, emails seem to be answered quickly and concisely.
Bonuses & Promotions
Visit the specials section to see Rap Chic Bingo’s offers. Sadly there’s nothing unique to this site, but you can join in all the best Jumpman offers. The Friday Night Takeaway is a chance to win an actual takeaway (always tempting!) and there are many guaranteed jackpots. The Weekend Wad offers £300 in bonus funds if you win on the lucky Golden Number in bingo.
The welcome bonus is fun, offering 200% and a spin on the decks. This can net you an extra amount from £5 to £2500! It’s a different approach to the usual welcome bonus mechanic. This cash has a wagering requirement so you must play it through four times before withdrawing.
Rap Chic Bingo is lacking any apps or even a page to direct players to the mobile site. There is a mobile site, which you can reach by visiting the site on your mobile’s browser.
The mobile site loads quickly and it’s neatly made, with slots laid out in tiles and bingo rooms in blocks. You just swipe side to side to find the right category. Unfortunately, the bingo itself is very basic and doesn’t offer much entertainment. The slots are much better for mobile viewing.
Variety & Originality
Rapchic Bingo suffers in variety, only having 90 ball and 75 ball bingo on offer. There are 11 rooms on offer, with four of those being jackpot rooms and two free bingo rooms, one limited to VIP. The site could use some more twists, or just some artwork to make each room feel more interesting.
There is a simply huge selection of slot games. There are several very high quality games like Starburst, plus a huge amount of very average games.
Loyalty & Rewards
There is a ‘VIP Slots Club’ at Rap Chic Bingo, which is pretty straightforward. You deposit £50 or more between Monday and Sunday each week, to get a guaranteed IG bonus the following Tuesday, up to £100. The actual details of this are not listed.
For bingo players, there is a ‘dream team’ where each player is popped into a team and that team’s wagering puts it on a leader board. This has a £300 split prize. This is nice but still doesn’t tell us what a VIP can really expect. On the plus side, you can win daily free spins on Fluffy Favourites.
