A Quick Look at Take a Break Bingo

It looked like Take a Break Bingo had closed for good at one point, but we hare happy to state that it is back with a fresh new look and is definitely alive and kicking. It is still on the Virtue Fusion Gambling Commission licence – the last remaining site.

Everyone in the UK has at some stage in their lives thumbed through a copy of Take a Break, the country’s leading puzzle magazine aimed at the gentler sex. Obviously, Take a Break Bingo is hoping that at some stage, everyone in the UK will play bingo at their colourful bingo site.

Take a Break Bingo UK is on the Virtue Fusion network and has been around since 2007. Read on as we put Take a Break bingo through our strict evaluation process.

Games & Software

Despite there being a dozen bingo rooms available here, there are only three forms of bingo which you can play. The main games are the most popular forms of bingo available, namely the 75-ball style of bingo that is popular in the USA, and the 90-ball style of bingo that will be familiar with all Take a Break Bingo UK players.
80-ball bingo is played here on a regular basis too. If you click on the ‘side games’ tab you’ll find a diverting range of online slots to play, including popular titles such as Eyecon’s Fluffy Favourites. This site used to have online casino games too but those seem to have been removed.

Slots & Casinos

  • Video slots.
  • 5-reel slots.

Limited amount of slot games by Playtech and Eyecon, but they do tend to be player favourites like the Age of the Gods series, Dynamite Digger, Enchanted Prince and Fluffy Favourites.

How to Deposit & Cash Out


Depositing can be done by using a Visa or MasterCard debit card, or by using Paysafecard. Single deposits must be between £5 and £1,000, and they are processed instantly.

Cashing out

Withdrawals can be done by BACS transfer and they must be between £5 and £50,000. Once your withdrawal has been verified your money should be with you in around three days.

These details get a thumbs up from us.

Community & Customer Service


With so many bingo rooms you might think that the bingo clientele would be stretched a little too thinly, but that is definitely not the case. Most rooms will have at least one hundred players in, and we counted five hundred in some of the bingo rooms we popped into. All chatter is overseen by dedicated chat hosts who never seem to take a break! Take a Break Bingo’s Facebook page is nicely active, although there’s nothing from them on Twitter.

Customer Service

This is a site with a limited selection when it comes to customer contact. You can contact them via live chat or email them at  [email protected] and they will respond within 48 hours.

Take a Break Bingo with You

We all need a break from time to time, so you’ll be pleased to hear that you can take a break with Take A Break bingo at any time thanks to the Take a Break Bingo mobile site.

Just power up your smartphone or tablet and navigate your way to the site. The Take a Break Bingo app will download within your browser, enabling you to play. All games will work on any iOS or Android-powered device.

Our Take on Take a Break Bingo

We’ve always had a fondness for the gentle nature of Take a Break, the magazine, and we are pleased to announce that this fondness has stretched over to the Take a Break bingo site. This site has virtually everything you need to play online bingo anytime, anywhere!

It’s four and a half stars for Take a Break Bingo. We’ve taken off half a star for a lack of payment options. Take a break at Take a Break Bingo today!

Avoid! Been waiting 6 weeks for the withdrawal, have received others but this one hasn't gone on. LIVE chat doesn't work. CMs palm you off. There is no telephone number and no one replies to your emails. I will have to seek legal advice!

I have had problems with this site and have sent loads of emails and all I get back is an automated response saying it has been escalated to the appropriate department we will contact you soon. I have had not one reply back from any of my emails they have no intension of answering my emails and sorting the problem. I will have to inform the gambling commission.

Was a fantastic site, played and enjoyed, 1st withdrawal went smoothly in my account in 3 days. The 2nd one is yet to show and chat staff just give you a load of different stories. A shame really because other than that games are good.

I used to be a loyal member of take a break bingo, but the site has steadily been going downhill so much I swapped sites, but still kept my account and popped in from time to time. What they have done recently in sacking all the amazing and friendly CMS who I have known for years, and had lots of fun, chats and advice from is totally disgraceful. I shall no longer be giving them a penny of my money. Pull your socks up tab, or accept the inevitable and close your site down.

Yes, i agree the way CMs were treated is disgraceful. TAB you should be ashamed of yourselves. Was a great site once and now the future looks bleak.

Rubbish!!! I have been on this site for 10 years only to find that all the old chat moderators have been replaced, no warning..just replaced! The new moderators are non-UK based and apparently the centre is now in Manilla. Must surely be a cost-cutting exercise. The new CMs are totally out of their depth, roomies not happy at all. Changeover is messy, appear in room late, leave early etc. To do this with no warning is bang out of order and after the free bingo finishes on Wednesday I for one won't be going back, and I know there are others who feel the same! Good luck Take-a-Break Bingo with this new change, you are gonna lose a lot of loyal players...and a lot of money!

This is now my favourite site. I did try it a couple of years ago, but I couldn’t use my iPad so didn’t bother staying. It now has a bright new look and you can use it on mobile and tablets. The cms are so lovely and you can talk about anything, my favourite is Andrew he has us all in stitches. :) I love the deposit promotion every Saturday.

Totally garbage. I have been messed around for over 10 months regarding a serious Server Error on one of there games. They admitted about the problem. Yet after 10 months they keep coming up with the same story that management is looking into it or its sent to the technical team, Where nothing ever gets done. Surely that is an infringement of there gaming licence, Considering they know about the error for so long, Yet they still allow the game to be used on there website. It should be taken down straight away until its fixed. Disgraceful that they allow it to go on for so long. I wouldnt recommened this site to anyone, I have played on a few bingo sites. But this has got to be one of the worst.
