City Bingo was the third site from the same camp as Costa Bingo and Sing Bingo. This site is based on a free to play for real cash offering, but with a city theme which changes each month. They used to have a cute feline mascot, but due to UKGC rules, City Cat has had to go into early retirement. Sadly City’s position as a major bingo brand has been diluted on recent years. This is a shame really as the brand was one which regular had prize games and big monthly giveaways – all themed around the destination of the month. Despite a whole bundle of changes there was still plenty of free bingo, prize promotions and regular jackpots to enjoy. So book your ticket and travel with us on a review of City Bingo.
City Bingo Welcome Offer
As of September 2021 new players to City Bingo are welcomed with a deposit bonus. Register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 to receive a 300% bonus (up to £200). In addition new players also collect 30 free spins on a selected slot. Wins from these spins attract no wagering terms as they're paid in cash. However the bingo bonus has wagering terms of x4 the deposit + bonus. These changes put City Bingo on par with Costa Bingo and pretty much ends it's chapter on no wagering terms on bingo bonuses.
No Deposit Free Bingo
A no deposit bingo room is available for new players. The Bingo Academy is open for 48 hours after registration at City Bingo. Free games play in this room every 20 minutes and give you the chance to win small prizes. These are £1, £2 or £5 for the 75 ball full house. All prizes are paid in bonuses so wagering terms will apply.
City Bingo Rooms
As well as free bingo, City Bingo offers a 75 ball, 75 ball 5 Line, 90 ball and 52 ball bingo. The latter is a card based version of bingo that uses playing cards instead of bingo numbers. A bit like Cinco that you can find at Tombola. There's also the aforementioned Bingo Academy as well as jackpot rooms. Penny Bingo fans should check out the promotions as this network of sites host 1p games every day from 2pm to midnight.
City Bingo SlotsCity Bingo has the usual selection of Dragonfish slots which can be found via the lobby. Featured titles include Starburst, Pigasus, Shopping Spree, Irish Luck, Pay Of The Dead and Lost Island. You can find slots via Top Games, Daily Drop Jackpots, Jackpots, Megaways and Deal Or No Deal. Slingo games such as Reel King, Fluffy Favourites and Monopoly can also be found but you won't find table games or live casino. Unlike a lot of bingo brands City Bingo doesn't tend to run any slot promotions which may appeal to bingo players.
City Bingo Promotions
When City Bingo launched it offered players plenty of promotions including prize games and jackpots. However as time has ticked on and the group of sites sold to 888 it's fair to say that City Bingo has been left relatively unattended. There are still regular offers such as cashback and jackpots but these are limited. That said you can play for 7 x £1000 games that take place every Friday (5pm to 11pm) provided you're a qualifying depositor. There are also network free games including a £250 one every Sunday and one for £1000 every Monday.
No app is required to play City Bingo. You can login and play as normal with mobile, tablet and desktop. This gives you access to the bingo rooms and slots. Deposits can be made safely and securely via a number of payment options including Paypal and debit cards. Like all UK bingo brands, responsible gambling is very important and therefore City Bingo has a number of tools you can use. These include setting deposit limits, taking time outs or cooling off periods, or choosing to self exclude from all brands powered by Dragonfish.
Penny’s Thoughts On City Bingo
In recent times the City Bingo lobby has been upgraded which makes for a better bingo experience. It’s much easier to find the rooms as well as access the different slots that are available. In the slots department you’ll find all the usual games such as Rainbow Riches, Starburst, Action Bank, Slingo, Temple Of Iris and many more. You can find more slots such as Megaways, Live Casino, Daily Jackpots and Progressives too. Back in the day we described “City Bingo was a great looking site, very colourful and well designed. It has potential to be a very good site provided it can differentiate itself from it’s sibling sites”. It’s still a good site but perhaps doesn’t have quite the same unique draw that it had in the early days as it has lost exclusivity. We do like the new look lobby and there’s a good range of bingo to enjoy.
