A Quick Look at Take a Break Bingo

A few recent visits to Take a Break Bingo (the latest on 4th October 2021) would indicate that the site has been ‘Down for Maintenance’ for most of 2021. It is still on the Virtue Fusion Gambling Commission licence – the last remaining site. It could be it is searching for a new platform or sorting terms with Playtech – no official updates have been received.

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.

How to Deposit & Cash Out


Depositing can be done by using a Visa or MasterCard debit card, or by using PayPal or 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 £1 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  support@takeabreakbingolounge.co.uk and they will respond within 48 hours.

Our Take on Take a Break Bingo

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.

Wow, a lot has changed since I last used this site. I love the new look and there are lots more games including fluffy favourites and White Wizard. You can now also play it on mobile so thumbs up from me!

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.

Absolute rubbish!! They send you emails telling you they will give you a 10.00 bonus if you deposit 1000 and stake it, then when the bonus dosent appear, you spends days emailing (because live help are useless) only for them to ask you to forward the email THEY SENT YOU because there is no record of any bonus. Ive had this problem this week and its taken 4 days for them to email me and tell me I didn't enter the bonus code. I KNOW I entered it and in my opinion its just a con to dupe people into depositing. I wouldnt be so mad, but its the second time they have sent promotion emails and haven't honoured them once Ive deposited. Wont be using this site again!!

hi. I joined TakeABreak Bingo recently - not good dont bother. They draw you in with giving you a bonus and when you open your account and start playing the money is taken from you that you win to meet wagering - find that unfair. Also you chat to them and they say that you have to spend 120 pounds to get your winnings that you have already won. The site does not have many games and i find by looking there are a lot of people playing and the same winners too. It is a very strange site. On talking to the people that work there they are not bothered about you as a person they are bothered about your money. Spend your well earned cash on another site. I don't trust take a break- they rob you. Trust me there are much better sites than this one.

I'm not at all impressed with Take A Break Bingo, in all the months I have been on the site I have NEVER had a win, not even a small one, so I decided to stop depositing with them, I get sent bonus' frequently but even with those I have as much hope as I would nailing jelly to a tree, I give up!

I play in the Scratch room at Take a Break which is great value as all games 5p or less. The room is just for take a break players so relatively small numbers, but a great chance to have a little win or 2 to keep my money lasting for longer :-)

I thought take a break bingo is a much fairer site for the winners. Not so. It's the same old same old winners all the time WHY ???? but the money is very good if and when you WIN?????

Love this site!! At Take a Break Bingo there is the perfect amount of choice with a room to cater for all. I personally like the Scratch room where there are lower priced tickets and you have a great chance of getting a win. If I'm feeling lucky I will have a go in the Bingo Lounge where there are more players and higher ticket prices, but MASSIVE jackpots! A nice little selection of side games to play as well without being overrun in slots like on every other site!

Take a Break Bingo Lounge is a great site, great cms, very helpful. I've had few wins and withdrawn them so I know this site is not a scam and can be trusted. I enjoy havin chats as well as playing bingo. You can win big wins, little wins, don't matter, coz playin alone is fun. Min dep is £10 which ukash can be used, as well as bank. All in all my number 1 bingo site and my number1 magazine, so peeps I reccomend this site for its friendliness, helpful cm, trustworthy and variety of rooms. So get playin at takeabreak and gl x
