A Quick Look at Crown Bingo

Packed with bingo and loads of other instant-play games like slots and casino classics, Crown Bingo UK is a great place to both take it easy or to ramp things up a notch. Aside from 75 ball and 90 ball bingo, there are also daily jackpots, speed bingo and freebie rooms. There are no downloads involved on desktop or mobile, and it’s quick to get the ball rolling.

Games & Software

  • Software provider: Bede; Netent, Barcrest, IGT, Eyecon, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, Blueprint Gaming, Lightning Box, NYX and more

The action is always hot here. 90 ball games are especially popular here, and if you’re up for something fast and furious, try their Break Neck speed bingo. It’s a wild ride with loads of laughs. There is always a game going on and you can also pre-buy for many of their bingo rooms, which have daily jackpots of up to £500 that simply must be won. The chat moderators also sometimes make their own games with extra prizes thrown in. If you’re on tight budget, you can also play in the free bingo room. Note the free rooms are only opened after you’ve made a deposit, but once it’s opened, it’s opened for life.

Slots & Casino

Video Slots, Progressive Jackpots, Blackjack, Roulette, Live Dealers – the choice here is huge. The list of slots and casino games is a long one and we have no doubt you will find plenty to entertain you.

How to Deposit & Cash Out

Depositing

The site currently accepts Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Maestro and Mastercard. That’s it.

Cashing out

All withdrawal requests have to go through a waiting period of 2 days. Once that’s over, the team will process your request and it will take another 2 to 5 business days for the money to be in your hands. As with all gaming sites, your account will need to be verified with proper ID before your first withdrawal can be processed. This is for everyone’s safety and is a one-time process.

There isn’t a lot of payment options to work with here, but at least they take both credit and debit cards. Minimum amount to deposit and withdraw is set at £10.

The Community

Crown Bingo has a lively community from the UK. The players are friendly and down-to-earth and the mood is always good. The chat hosts do a fabulous job and can be quite hilarious with their little antics and anecdotes.

The site has a Twitter account and does tweet every so often about special promos, new games, and other odd, but amusing, things like the proper way to grate cheese! However, they’re not overly active on social media and the best way to stay current is to check your inbox for their newsletter, which they send to all who’ve signed up for an account.

Take Crown Bingo with You

The Crown Bingo app works from your phone or tablet’s web browser. No need to go looking for it in the App Store or in Google Play, because it’s like going to any other website. The site will then optimise itself (and all the games too of course!) to fit your device. From the latest iPhone, to a good ol’ Android tablet, to Windows or even a Blackberry, it works all the same.

You won’t skip a beat with Crown Bingo Mobile. Once you’ve signed into their website, you’ll find the same great bingo games as on the desktop site.

Our take on Crown Bingo

Crown Bingo is a 4 star site. Other than a good choice of games, the promotions are numerous and you can find several different offers each day. We especially appreciate that once you’ve made a deposit, you’ll always have access to the Free Bingo Room, so there’s always a place to hang out and play even on a rainy day. The one snag is that they don’t accept too many different payment methods, but does have the basics for most players in the UK. Take a look and see how you will always be royally welcomed at Crown Bingo!

Have never left a review before, but been using online casinos for years. I joined Crown Bingo, and as usual, I never accept any promotions or free deposit matches, I use online slots and regularly go from site to site. I was having a bit of a bad time luck wise with crown bingo, and after a few days was approx. £2000 down, this I don’t mind as it was my decision to keep playing, I deposited another £500 and eventually won back £2300 which I withdrew.

I waited a week and heard nothing, then to discover they had sent me a verification email from a different email account which had gone into my junk, I sent the correct documents immediately, but then I received an email from them apologising that they had accidently suspended my account, but would get it rectified straight away. a few days later I had an email saying my documents had been accepted and my withdrawal would be processed, since then, (about 3 weeks) I have still not received any money, I am still locked out of my account, and they have been ignoring my emails.

I have tried to email them so many times just for an update (I have ever been rude), but don’t know what to do now, maybe call the Police?? needless to say I would advise anyone to steer clear of Crown Bingo.

Usual set up. Few deposits and a couple of decent wins. I won £350 the first night which I withdrew. This preceded a ridiculous losing streak on the slots of over £1100. This was across a few games and over an extended period of time. When I asked for a bonus they offered £25 with a x35 wagering requirement so I closed the account.
There are far better sites out there. Give these jokers a miss!

Well I joined this site over a year ago. I had a few wins so went to withdraw, but had so much hassle verifying my account. After 6 weeks of hell I finally managed to verify my account. Image my horror when now, a year later… I have to verify my account all over again?
Crown used to be a great site with great free bonuses, now you get nothing. I really wouldn’t bother with this site the way it is run today. Simply, utterly, terrible.

Having to get Crown Bingo investigated by the gambling commission. Tried to make a small withdrawal to test the site but it was denied unless I supply 7 identification documents (most of which they already have). They are well noted for not paying out. I would advise everyone to keep well away!

I joined crown bingo last night it said I would get a bonus when I put my 10 pound on. I did not get any bonus and when I asked in the chat room told me it will come automatically after I spend my 10 pounds – it did not. when I told customer service within half hour of joining they told me it was too late to get it I should of asked when the 10 was still on – two different exuses. also my friend had the same happen to her so I think it’s a big con I would not recommend this site I’ve told all my friends who play online bingo to stay well clear.

Jeees this site is bad, i mean really bad. I love VF sites but this is terrible. didnt get my welcome bonus as apparently i declined it – which i did not!!!!! Also looked under my promotion history to track all bonuses accepted, declined spent etc and guess what not there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
please dont use this site its awful spend your money else were.
Also promotion terms and conditions are hard to find. They dont put on the promotion offer in small print at the bottom so you have to go and read the full terms of the main site.

What can i say??? i have no words to say how Crown Bingo is the worseeeeee site ever been on. Played over a year, only went back for depo match, wished i had not bothered, still the same winners from 6 months ago, do they work for Crown???

Never ever won a thing. slots, well lol say no more, you only have to check out the freebie games, see how many players? compare it with a good site??? yes you will see the difference, plz go ahead depo, but beware your only paying so the reg winners keep on winning, i can name them. good luck… your need it.

I had been playing on Crown Bingo for a month or so and had no luck. After receiving a deposit match email I deposited what I thought was 20.00 but auto filled to 200.00 (which has never happened to me before… or after, and I have played on most if not all virtual fusion sites) .

This was almost my weeks wage so as you can imagine I panicked to say the least. I immediately requested a refund. To which I received an email asking for id verification.

This started on 7th July and though I complied in every way they kept coming back with email after email saying it wasn’t good enough. They wanted pictures of cards I had used in the past that I didn’t have and were out of date.

In the end I had to threaten twice to report them before they accepted the id I sent. I finally got my money back on 14th July – not ideal under the circumstances I think you will agree.

To conclude –
I still would not have my money if I had not threatened to report them!!!!!!!!

The bingo games are good, many different extra bonus games attached. I have won on both slots and bingo, although I personally don’t like the slots here just too cluttered to navigate the site to find them. Had to send in I.d to withdraw and that was dealt with quickly. Friendly cms. A good site, I just don’t like the layout/look of the site. Definitely a site I will return to.

I have watched online Crown Bingo grow since joining in 2006. It is massive and very popular – being one of the leading established bingo clubs. They have a lot of original fun formats to play bingo – I particularly like their “Joker Jackpot” room which combines the fun of a game of bingo with a deck of cards. Also do check out the live Bingo Studio. Their jackpot linked games have some of the biggest prize money. If you’re into slots, Crown has a big choice and do some of the biggest progressive jackpot prizes seen on slots. Winning is not easy, there seems always to be a lot of players, even for night owls, but your modest stakes can always win big when your luck is in. Crown has got to be in the top 10 bingo sites.

I used to like Crown back when I first joined, but now it just takes, takes, takes and I get nothing back. I just don’t find it fun anymore watching the same few people win in practically any room you go in. One room I went in and maxed tickets (cost £11), there were around 150 people so I didn’t expect to win, but what really annoyed me was that one person won the whole lot- 6 lines in 75 ball bingo! Now I know some people are lucky, but to win ALL 6 lines when there are 150 people?! Highly highly unlikely. So I tried smaller rooms, same problem and still no sniff of a win even when maxing tickets. I watched one person in the course of an hour or more win a prize nearly every game and I am not exaggerating. Rooms are clicky and they jump on you if you mention same winners when a CM is there even though it’s true. But when no CM is on we have a moan about same winners.

I occasionally like to go on in the very early morning as there are less people in the big rooms (though still 100 or so), well often the site is down at this time, but no explanation or warning of this happening or clue of when it will be back on so I was sat one morning waiting for ages to get on and it wasn’t even that early, I think it came back on about 8am.

No fun anymore when it seems something is working against you and even though you max tickets for tiny pots in small rooms, another “same winner” comes and wins. It’s the network I have a problem with not Crown per se as they are all linked sites. I will say Crown offers a lot of bonuses from time to time, but you still don’t get ahead. I had deposited nearly £200 to play with last time, but got nowhere. Winning becomes virtually impossible after so long. Newbies – take your winnings and run for the hills.

Been moaning meself rachie. VF have changed the way lucky numbers is being played. 2p games, free scratchcard if lose, always a 0p or 10p, could work out better of a night where tics are 15p each, but will now have 2p, 5p, and 10p games on as well, but my gripe is the money is far less on the 5p games than i normally play in mornings, even though same amount of players.

Hi Lennon, I sound like a right moaner don’t I? Lol but yeah it gets annoying, and maxing certainly doesn’t work as all you get left with is 20 flashers and still no win 🙁 I never usually play 75 ball on Virtue Fusion sites as I have never won on there and have definitely learnt my lesson after the last time! We all expect some of the same winners now and again but on these sites it gets really really ridiculous. Good luck to you too and I am strictly buying less than 10 tickets per game now if I ever bother playing again!

Hi rachie. I found out long ago that 75 ball bingo surely does have a lot of repeat winners. You’re right though about regulars on each site moan when no cm there, but if cm there and some1 not in the click mentions same winners they get attacked by the gang that moan when no cm there, think it’s just human nature to moan. Also rachie i don’t play any sites local rooms as think all have big same winner problem on each site – dear tics and small prizes. Anyway good luck, hope you have a big win and take it easy on the maxing out lol,

It’s very easy to deposit at Crown Bingo, but a different story when u want to withdraw, will defo not be staying on it, an when i mentioned this in one of the rooms another player had the same problem. I won 300 and have emailed them few times and all i got back was they recieved email and would look into it. The 300 pound i won was put back on and lost. I have emailed to say i want my account cancelled, seems to be a big problem with this site.

That is odd, I have never had a problem trying to withdraw from Crown- were you waiting for the withdrawal to come through and it took too long and you reversed the withdrawal, or had some other problem? It does take a long time for the money to appear in your bank, they process it for days and then afterwards it takes another few days to go to your bank. Sorry you lost your money.

I am disgusted with Crown bingo. They have been taking money from my account for years with no problems, but as soon as I want to withdraw (£50 winnings) they tell me I need to send a photocopy of my Passport, Driving Licence, Birth Certificate, Household bill and a copy of my credit card.

Be warned, they are happy taking your money but make it very difficult for you to withdraw any winnings. They don’t ask for any of this information when taking money from your account, but as soon as they have to pay out they claim it is for your ‘protection’.

I was not happy sending my personal information, so I could not withdraw my winnings. I will never give them another penny ever again.

I agree it’s not unusual. I’ve been playing online since 1999. Before it was great,a special bingo ballroom, there was more chat and games, now hardly any talk. Yes you get a whacking bonus, but bare in mind winning is just luck and the right pick of your cards, but if you take it out it’s not easy to get a win, so keep on funding till u might be lucky to win. It’s 2012 now not 1999, times change and the rules with it. Remember to check terms before playing. gl to u

Hi Looby. Requesting id for withdrawals is now common practice at many online bingo sites and Crown are not alone in this. We would say that providing the sensitive information is covered as per the Virtue Fusion instructions you should be quite safe providing the required information and get your hands on your well deserved winnings.
