City Bingo Review
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.

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.

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.
