City Bingo is yet another site that has fallen under the Joy of Bingo Network, owned by 888. When it was bought it had a revamp, and now offers some of the best online bingo In the UK.
When entering the homepage you will be met by a slick and fun looking page, which has similar navigation to many other online bingo sites with quick click tabs taking you to all the relevant areas. You also get to see all of City Bingo latest offers, jackpots and sign up deals.
The page has a nice red and black colour scheme and tries to create a classy environment, with lots of the rooms having celebrity lifestyle themes. Such as stretched limos, and shopping sprees. It does appear to be more aimed at the female players, but it definitely manages to create its own identity and brand. Something other sites fail to do.
Moving on to the first deposit offers, and City Bingo has one of the very best offered by and on the Dragonfish Network. You get a huge first deposit boost of 250% on your first deposit between 35 and £100. It does not stop at that though.
Every further deposit after that will receive a 50% reload bonus, so you know you’re going to be getting free bingo money for the life of your account. The real stand out though is the “newbie non funded” room. You do not have to deposit a penny into your account in order to play this room for 3 full days, and win the £20 jackpot, £5 bonuses and loads of potential loyalty points.
City Bingo will bring you 90 ball, 75 ball and speed bingo games, meaning they really do cater for all player types. The rooms run all through the day and night, be sure to look out for when some of the specialist rooms are running. For example, the speed bingo room plays between 7.30 and 11.30 for those people short on time.
Like most online bingo companies, and all being owned by 888, you get your usual assortment of casino games. These include slots, scratch cards and instant win games. These carry some very handsome prizes and have people signing up for them alone. The piggy payout progressive jackpot was one that we found to be a high earner, and can see you playing for a share of £50,000.
City also offer you 90 ball and 75 ball on their online bingo app for smart phone and tablet. It is very bug free and is a great way to play on the go. You can also play a select number of their instant win games and slots on the app.
The game chat, and social interaction on City is very pleasant. Users appear to be friendly and the chat hosts are always on hand to help. They do not create the same buzz I have experienced in other online bingo sites, but they more than get the job done, and can let players relax and just concentrate on their cards without being overpowering.
24/7 live support is on hand, as is a phone line, on site email and separate email address you can contact from your personal account. Like with all sites under the Joy of Bingo network, support is fast and easy to use, with very knowledgeable staff. A real strength from this group of online bingo sites.
In summary City Bingo really is starting to stand out as one of the top sites On the UK bingo circuit. During day time hours prizes can be a little small, but as this site gets more popular that will soon change. Many will be enticed in with its fantastic welcome offer, which really is one of the best around.
The customer support is outstanding, and the uniqueness of the site, in an era when online bingo can all look the same, should not be overlooked. Finally the penny and free rooms really offer something for players who just enjoy the fun and socializing of Bingo.
