About City Bingo

City Bingo launched in January 2011 utilizing Dragonfish bingo software, so the quality of the gameplay is unquestioned. They did have a nice quirky cat character, originally named City Cat, who was in charge and the changing locations every month allowing players to explore the world from the comfort of their armchair.

But he became a rarer feature of the site post November 2017 when new rules regarding ‘childish’ imagery on gambling sites came into being.

Typical destinations include Las Vegas, Lapland around December time, London, Hong Kong and the like. These give the site the inspiration for the bigger monthly prize giveaways.

The welcome package is excellent and allows players to enjoy a mix of slots (needing cash) and the bingo games available. The ethos of the site is great value bingo.

In ‘Bingo District’ is where you will find the main bingo games, both 90 ball and 75 ball versions – all reasonably priced at 5p or 10p.

There are five different free bingo rooms, although one is just for new players and for another you have to have deposited the same day for the big money .

Slots and casino games

While the range of casino options is not extensive, the selection of slot games more than compensates. Although there is a tab for instants, you will be presented with a much better selection if you look to the top left of the lobby where you will see icons for four or five slot games and an option to ‘Show All’. This is where you want to be to see the options broken down into ‘Growing Jackpots’, ‘Web & Mobile’, Big Wins, 1p, Animal, Casino, Scratch and A-Z.

From there choose from games including Foxuin Wins, Sharknado, Dr Love, Fluffy Favourites, Sugar Train and many, many more.

Social media

Facebook: There is a Facebook page with over 4,000 ‘likes’ which means a lot of players have passed through the doors. I did expect it to be busier and bursting with offers, but although there is not much in the way of giveaways and community interaction at the present this could escalate again in the future. The page does offer an alternative way to contact the site.

Twitter: We found a Twitter account for City Bingo which is sadly underused.

Once in a bingo room there are three more options at the bottom of the page to enhance your game time while playing, there is ‘Games’ and ‘Chat’ . These give you the option to take part in the chat room antics, or to play from a massive selection of slots and instant games. Some will open to play within the room and others will take you away from the room, but there is no way of telling which will do what.

If you have chat or a game open you will see the numbers being called and how many numbers you have left to bingo in a panel at the top of the page so you know to click back to the game when you are getting close.

City Bingo used to be a great site to play on. I joined not long after it opened and am still there to this day for my sins, but since it merged with all the other sites what a disgrace it has became. Loads of good hosts have been sacked to make way for hosts that have no idea what they are doing and same winners everyday and night. That’s not luck that’s just a rip off for us genuine players x.
I would never recommend any1 joining this site anymore, it has gone right down hill I’m afraid to say. They have took a nice friendly site and ruined it all for the sake of greed x

Please be aware that withdrawals on these Cassava sites are archaic, all designed to encourage you to keep withdrawing from it. I was a fool and lost a lot of money over this past weekend, if i had been able to withdraw my winnings fair and square i would have been in profit. It preys on our addiction!!
If you get a big win and it is over their withdrawal limits i suggest you leave it in pending and DO NOT go near the site again until your money has been transferred so your are not tempted.
Ridiculous system in this day and age. Funny how you can deposit til you are blue in the face yet when it is time to collect your winnings it is a different story. Shocking.
I hope this helps at least one person not to lose out and be left far from happy. Learn from my very expensive mistake. :o(

City Bingo, same caller, lay out and slots the same as some other bingo sites. For new players free games for 24 Hours worth playing. More chance to win on this site when you first join. A small win better then lose. ‘Word of warning to take out any money of £30 (cash) to withdraw needed’ Bet wise!

This site has my favourite format.. users and chat hosts are really friendly.. and unlimited free bingo an added extra .. I only wish maybe that there were bigger cash prizes to win.. which will only come from more people joining.. overall i’m sure with a bit of spicing up and maybe a tv ad this place could grow…. a free weekly jp on a sunday of 1500 is also an added bonus.. my only complaint is not winning enough and i feel the 30 pound minimum withdrawal bank should maybe be reduced to 20.

I have been playing on this site for some time now and I have found the site to be ok, but not great.
There are very few games to play although you can buy tickets for 5p a card. This is where the fun ends, the games vary in prizes, but are very rarely over £10. This is not bad you may say, but when the minimum amount for withdrawal is £30 you hardly ever get the chance to take out any winnings.
The first time I withdrew my winnings the money never arrived into my account and I then had to get letters from my bank stating that the cash had not gone in as city,bingo said that it had. When I gave them the evidence they came back to me saying it was put back onto an out of date card that had not been used for 8 months, so the money had been returned to them.
This whole process took 7 weeks all for £30 quid. The chat hosts are ok and fun and will play games to win free bingo bucks to use on bingo. My main gripe about them is that when you are playing the games they can be a bit offensive. I played a chat game called “City’s The Best” where you have to pick a number and if it is drawn you say the words city’s the best with your number at the end, my number came out and I typed the words and missed out the comma on the city’s so the chat host said it was not valid even though a player said she had let them off earlier.
This may all sound petty, but really if there is no flexibility with these games and a chat host cannot use their discretion they are no fun to play and they can make you feel stupid just because of bad pronunciation which is never good.
Summing up CityBingo is an ok game of bingo, but the prizes are low and there are rules on how much you need before you can withdraw, also the chat games have rules so if you make mistakes then you will not win.

I played City Bingo and received a free £5:00, I found the bingo hard to get around, the CH where very friendly, but no-one chatted. I found it very boring and could not wait to play my £5:00 so I could get of the site. I would not recommend this site to anyone.

City Bingo is very easy to navigate. 3 free bingo rooms (not 24 hrs) and a free bingo room for 24hrs after a depo. Not a huge choice of rooms to play in…2 90 ball and 2 75 ball. Nice cms and nice players. Pots don’t get very big as not a whole lot of players. All in all not a bad little site.

City Bingo is in a class of its own. The slots gave bonus rounds often. Seen 100X more than once on different slots. Good deposit bonus at 250% and the best site i have played on in a long time. Well worth giving this site a go – I loved it.

I absolutely love City Bingo! They have free games playing all day long and give away free points every time you make a deposit that can be claimed for seven days after that. These points can be redeemed to buy bingo cards and they always have excellent deposit bonuses running too!

Sounds great, to be honest, i never realised there were so many different bingo operators operating in the Uk. Thanks to ‘WhichBingo’ you can check out the different bingo sites and read the comments to get a feel for the company that you feel you will be comfortable with. I made the mistake of rushing to join the first one i saw on a Tv advert, not advisable, so well done to this website for giving the public a balanced view of what’s out there!

Well at least you got £100, they have just scammed me out of £160. I won it with their no deposit bonus. I was told to deposit £30 to be able to collect it. They then started to mither me for ID. Once I gave them my ID they changed my date of birth on my account and said that they could not pay out as my passport and DOB did not match. Complete and utter scammers like all their sites. That is why they hide in Gibraltar, so they are not under any regulation. I will never be playing at any Cassava bingo sites again.

I agree all these Casava sites come over all fluffy and friendly but they are money grubbing and i think their slots are doctored when you win too much on them. When you have a problem you get the same brush off email. Don’t even get me started on their fake winners on free bingo!!!!

City Bingo is a scam and nothing but a scam in my opinion.
Won money with the no deposit bonus and deposited the £30 to be able to withdraw the funds. They then required ID to withdraw and amazingly on Costa Bingo and City Bingo my ID did not match up, as they had changed my details at City Bingo and Costa Bingo. As though I do not know my own date of birth.

Thank you for your review!
