Regular readers may have gathered that I play quite a lot of bingo online, although I am now establishing a taste for visiting the land based clubs having found how friendly everyone is and that there is no stigma to going on your own if you need to.
What is frustrating to me is how widely different online bingo sites vary in how quickly they are prepared to let you get your hands on your winnings should you be lucky enough to win enough to withdraw.
For me the stand out successes in this area recently have been Virgin Bingo, Jackpotjoy, Boyle Bingo and Heart Bingo. By default, all the Virtue Fusion operated sites seem to have a speedy turnaround of withdrawals, but Virgin stood out for me recently as my winnings (unfortunately not a massive amount I hasten to add) were back in my account in less that 24 hours and showed up even before the deposit!
That is what I call service and in 2012 we bingo players should be demanding nothing less. In these days of ‘Faster Payments’ there is no excuse for online bingo sites hanging on to our winnings for days at a time. Can you imagine walking out of a land based club on the promise of receiving your winnings at a later date?
We all know that Cassava sites have a way to go to catch up with the service offered by those named above, but surely it can’t be too long before they seriously have to consider their withdrawal policy that can take up to a week to complete.
If anyone has any experience of withdrawing from a Cozy Games site I would love to hear from you about how long that takes – I only ever manage to win enough to keep playing for a decent length of time before having to deposit again, so don’t play at these enough to actually reach sufficient wagering, lol.
Virtue Fusion and Gamesys have set the bar very high, give Virgin Bingo a try to see if you can experience this for yourself and let’s see how long it takes for the rest to catch up.
