Going Mobile on Cheers Bingo

If you are reading our brilliant Cheers Bingo blog then there is a high chance that you are one of our loyal roomies or perhaps a new player settling into the site. Whatever your reasons for visiting, we always try to provide up to date and comprehensive information on our Cheers Bingo blog and this week we are looking at how desktop players can switch to the mobile version of the site.

Why Go Mobile?

Mobile gaming is now more popular than traditional desktop gaming and this can be attributed to the massive rise in mobile technologies. Tablets are more popular than ever and mobile phones now have the technology to run sophisticated gaming software to make for a truly solid and fluid gaming experience right from the palm of your hand. This is why more and more people are choosing to enjoy a game of online bingo or slots from their phone or tablet device.

Cheers Bingo Mobile Options

On a lot of bingo sites, when you access the mobile version of the site you are only provided with a few games to enjoy. This is not the case at Cheers and our site is not scaled down in any way (apart from the screen size of course) and you will be able to play all your favourite 90 and 75 ball games just as you would on the normal version of the site. Additionally, we have a great range mobile-friendly slots to enjoy also.

How Can You Get Involved?

There is no need to mess around with any apps or downloads on Cheers Bingo and all you have to do to access our mobile site is to log in as you normally would with your existing details from your mobile browser. Our site is compatible with almost all types of modern mobile phone and tablet devices and you can access Cheers Bingo from a variety of browsers including Google Chrome and Safari. Once you are logged in you can begin to play make deposits and play games as normal.

Advantages of Cheers Bingo Mobile

Playing from your phone or tablet is great as don’t need to sit at your desktop computer. You can play from your couch or bed with extreme ease and comfort. Additionally, we may also put on mobile-friendly promotion from time to time but you can also claim the usual bonuses and promotions just as you normally would from the main desktop site. Also, a quick bingo or slot game is a great way to pass the time while you are waiting on the bus or are on your lunch break as a lot of our games can be played in just a few minutes.

Online Bingo vs Traditional Bingo

For generations, the game of bingo has had a loyal following and it is enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. While traditional bingo has declined over the last few years, the online bingo market has continued to flourish and there are millions of players logging onto their favourite sites to play the game of online bingo. Most enthusiasts enjoy the game of bingo because you can win big jackpots while communicating with others in a social setting but which game type should you choose, online or traditional?

Traditional Bingo Overview

The physical game has declined somewhat over the last decade and in the UK, this can be attributed to a number of key factors. The smoking ban had a massively detrimental effect on traditional bingo halls and while you will still find bingo clubs all over the UK, their numbers have declined dramatically and there are less than 400 halls now left in Britain.

However, many still enjoy the physical game due to the social interaction that it offers and companies such as Mecca and Gala still offer plenty of traditional physical bingo halls all over the country where you can go and enjoy the game with others. A quick Google search will point you in the right direction of your nearest bingo hall.

Online Bingo: Unlimited Options

Online bingo always tries to capture the atmosphere of the real game and some players simply want to enjoy the game from the comfort of their sofa and this is why they choose online bingo. The online variant has a bit of everything and that’s why we love it so much. Players can enjoy jackpot games, promotional offers and a social bingo lobby all from their computer, laptop or mobile device.

Land-based bingo games are set to fixed schedules but you don’t have this issue with online bingo as players can play at any hour of any day. Additionally, physical bingo requires you to play the bingo game that is presented to you whereas with the online version you can choose from a range of games (90 ball, 75 ball, 30 speed ball etc.).

Final Decision

In all honesty, we love both versions of the game and if you have never tried the physical game before then we would recommend gathering a couple friends and trying it out. It’s great fun and offers the classic bingo experience. Players will continue to play the online version but definitely give the physical game a try if there is a bingo hall near you.

We hope this article has helped you realise that there are pros and cons to both versions and you should play the game that suits you most. So whether you are online or playing the physical game, good luck and we hope you win big!

How to Play the New Star Raiders Slot

When we first heard that Pariplay were launching a slot based on the Star Raiders game, we knew we had to have a few spins. The classic Atari game was cemented in pop culture in the eighties and just about everyone loved playing this game. If you want to take this game for a spin then check out our fab guide first.


This game is created to look like an old style arcade game and you can use the buttons under the reels to do so. It’s almost like feeding coins into one of these machines, which helps to make the game feel much more authentic. There are always 243 ways to win in this game, but you don’t need to spend a lot to give it a whirl.

A minimum bet of 20p a spin is available in this game and it won’t take you long before you’re ready to kick it up a notch. Use the auto play feature if you want this game to play for you, it will come in handy on a long gaming session!


The aim of this game is to match up three or more of any symbol to win. As there are 243 paylines, they just need to appear adjacent or diagonally from one another, so you don’t need to worry about where they are positioned. The game is easy to play and it’s mobile optimised too, so you can continue to get playing on the go.


The design of this game really harks back to the classic age of the arcade game, which will bring a sense of nostalgia to players. You’ll feel like you’re playing on a cabinet game and the designers have done a lot to make this the case.

The symbols themselves are a mixture of poker symbols and spacecraft, each of which have different multipliers attached. If you open up the paytable then you’ll be able to see them in full.

Bonus Features

One of the best parts of this game are the bonus features that you can trigger, these are:

Free Spins – Watch out for the golden star symbol as you play this game, as three of these will allow you to play in the free spins round. This starts the battle mode too, so you’ll be playing against the computer for more spins.
Wilds – The UFO symbol appears in the game as the wild symbol but it gets even better in the bonus feature. They’ll be held in place and allowed to help you out for even longer!

If you’re looking for some amazing gameplay then be sure to play on the Star Raiders slot right here at Cheers Bingo, good luck!

Online Bingo Security Tips

The BBC recently reported figures from an official survey that looked into the effects of cybercrime. The report found that there were an estimated 3.6 million cases of fraud and over 2 million computer misuse offences in just one year. The report further highlighted that offences had risen 8% for the year and argued that fraud was now the most common crime in the UK. As a result, we thought we would come up with some tips and tricks for our bingo roomies on how they can stay safe playing online bingo!

General Device Security

This is super basic stuff and is all about the general security on your computer, mobile, or laptop. The firewall is arguably the most basic bit of security that you can activate and most devices will come with one built in so be sure to check that it is switched on. You would be amazed at how many players are unaware that their firewall has been turned off.

Password Choice

Your bingo account has access to real funds and if your password is compromised then your account can also be compromised. Of course, most players will have their own password protocol but in a general sense try not to make the password easy to guess. We know this sounds trivial but people’s passwords get hacked or guessed every day so it’s better to be safe than sorry. A combination of letters and numbers with some uppercase and some lowercase is always advised to give you the most robust password possible.

General Lobby Tips

As you are probably aware, Cheers Bingo has a lot of roomies and while the vast majority are just there to enjoy the game, you can never be too careful so we would not recommend using your real name as a username and we generally advise from giving it out in the chat although this is entirely up to yourself. Of course, never give out your address or phone number or even your date of birth!

Your Deposit Account

It can be tempting to make a large deposit and leave the funds in your bingo account for the sake of convenience. Before doing this make sure you have read our wagering requirements so that you understand how easily a big withdrawal can be made. Additionally, consider making deposits when you are physically about to play the game so that you do not need to keep money in your bingo account any longer than necessary.

Are You Secure?

These are just a number of things you can consider when staying safe online. We would recommend reviewing your account security and using this article as a checklist. Also, if you have any other ideas for bingo security then leave us a message on Facebook or Twitter and we will add them to this list. Have fun and stay safe!

As we get to the end of 2016, many of us will be thinking about what we’ll be doing in 2017. If you’re making some resolutions then we can help you out! Just check out our ideas below.

Get Out More

If you want to get out more then we can help you with that. Whether you’re heading off on the town or just out for a walk, take us with you on your mobile. Simply getting out of the house can be great for people, you can even play bingo at the same time.

Get Fit

Heading to the dreaded gym can use up just about all of your willpower, so get some support from your roomies. Chat away to others in our rooms and talk about what you’re hoping for in 2017. If you want to get fit, lose weight or even stop smoking there’s probably another player with the same ambitions.

If you find a friend that’s attempting to reach similar goals to you then this can help you immensely. You can cheer each other on and chat about your goals while you play bingo. Just having a positive chat about what you want from next year can help you out.

Save Money

After the big blowout of Christmas, you might be wanting to save a bit of money. Cutting out your daily coffee or going dry for January can save a whole heap of cash.

If you want to save money while you play online bingo then you can keep your eyes peeled for bonus offers. These will help you get more games for your money and you won’t feel like you’re missing out either.

You can also take advantage of our free bingo offers, as you don’t need to spend to play. We also have loads of cheap bingo games too, so you can play from as little as a penny if you’d like. Plus, if you win a jackpot your savings will be booming once more.


If you want to chat with other people then you can do so in our rooms. Making friends and having fun is all a part of the bingo experience, so make sure you take part. The more you play, the more you’ll get to know other roomies and form friendships.

Head over to our Facebook page if you want to have even more fun, as we love chatting with roomies and making friends. If you love funny pictures and jokes then you’ll be right at home on our Facebook page, we’ll even give you 5,000lps for liking us (T&Cs apply).

Playing Fluffy Favourites

At this point, most players have had a go on Fluffy Favourites at least once. If you’re one of the few players that hasn’t then never fear, we’ve got you sorted with our no nonsense guide. The game is simple and all you really need to do is set up your bet, which will already be done for you when you’re playing with free spins.

Then you’ll just need to match up three or more of any symbol to release a multiplier onto your bet. These can range from doubling your bet to giving you hundreds of times your wager. Watch out for the in game free spins too, as these will keep you playing without paying.

That’s all there is too it, just claim your daily free spins and get playing! Good luck to all of our roomies!

Our Favourite Christmas Movies

We’re getting in the festive spirit with fun slots and Christmassy bingo games, but we can’t wait to watch out top Christmas movies. Pop these on the telly and settle down with your favourite games to make 2017 a Christmas to remember!


Will Ferrell’s Christmas movie Elf has to be on the list of top movies of all time. The all-star cast and hilarious comedy stylings mean that we can watch this movie over and over again. The tale follows the Christmas Elf Buddy, as he goes on a journey of self-discovery to find his dad in New York.

If you love this Christmas classic then you’ll love playing it while in our Snug online bingo room. Get cosy with your fellow roomies and get chatting about your top movies, as this is a hosted room that’s filled with fun.

It’s a Wonderful Life

Speaking of classic Christmas films, It’s a Wonderful Life gets brought out every festive season. Whether you have the classic video or an up to date Blu Ray, there’s nothing better than settling in to watch this movie. Most of us will probably know all of the words off by heart at this stage!

With this movie, we’d recommend a Christmas themed slot like Very Merry Christmas. As the story unfolds you could be winning yourself a few Christmas presents with this rewarding slot game.

Die Hard

The eternal question of ‘is Die Hard a Christmas film’ is answered as soon as you fire up this movie. Hans Gruber’s face just gets us in the festive spirit and the film has more twists and turns than you can imagine. The best part about this movie has to be watching it with someone that’s never seen it before and watching their expression.

It’s the perfect movie to get watching while you wait for the big jackpot games to begin. Just watching it any time of year brings back memories of being too full for pudding!

The Nightmare Before Christmas

This little musical number comes on every year and we can’t help but sing along to it every time. The story follows the King of Halloween as he takes on a more festive role. Be prepared to have these songs stuck in your head for days after you watch it!

If you’re a big Tim Burton fan then this might just start you off watching the entire collection all over again. This is definitely one to watch while playing bingo, you can even share the lyrics with other roomies as you all get in the festive mood.

There we have it, our complete guide to the movies we love to go along with the games we most enjoy, what’s your perfect combination?
