City Bingo Review
When you first enter city bingo you are greeted with a very metropolitan looking website. The branding and design is eye catching and user friendly. Each month there is a new city that features a free bingo room. These capital cities are from around the world and the website changes it colours and theme depending on which city it is. The main home page is taken up with the new bingo player offer.
As part of this city bingo review, we thoroughly examined the terms of this welcome bonus along with the standard terms and conditions that are applied. Having read the terms we did not spot anything that would deter us from recommending city bingo. Just be careful of the wagering requirements when accepting any bingo bonus. Although we have provided an inspection of the terms we strongly recommend you also read these carefully yourself. This bingo site is part of the UK Gambling Commission, which means you can safely play bingo.
The registration process
So we could provide detailed analysis for this city bingo review we created a new player profile. If youre thinking of joining up then you will have to first register a new bingo account. There are lots of join now buttons around the site and once pressed you are directed to a registration screen. Youll need to enter your name, address, telephone number as well as creating a username and password. To be able to claim the free £5 you will also have to enter credit or debit card details. No money will be removed from your bank account unless you make a deposit. Giving your card details is an extra layer of security to ensure that you are over the age of 18. In our assessment we found the whole process of creating a new city bingo account an easy one.
Once youve created your new bingo account you are taken to the my account section of the website. Here you can hit the bingo rooms using your free £5 or you can make an initial deposit. To trigger the bingo bonus youll need to deposit a minimum of £10. We also need to point out that there is also free bingo available. This means you will neither have to enter your card details at registration nor make a deposit. We would strongly recommend trying the free bingo room to begin with. This will allow you to become familiar with the bingo site and get used to how it plays. We believe it helps reduce the risks involved when gambling online. But please also note that there are no chat facilities to players who have not made a deposit.
The lobby and bingo rooms
Whether youve made a deposit or want to head straight to the bingo room then you will not be disappointed with the bingo lobby. It continues to have the same urban theme that runs throughout city bingo. It has also been really well designed so the layout is very user friendly. Bingo rooms are very easy to find as there are little menu tabs that point you in the direction of free bingo or big bingo jackpots. During the course of this city bingo review we were impressed with the overall choice of bingo games and rooms available. There are bingo games for players with all budgets which is important with any online gambling. The bingo rooms themselves are colourful and fun. You have a choice of 90 ball bingo and 75 ball bingo. The chat hosts all came across as friendly and helpful.
Our overall analysis and assessment for this city bingo review. On the whole we struggled to find much criticism. We were impressed with the look and design of the layout, as this makes it an easy bingo website to use. There is a good selection of rooms and prizes available. We really liked the idea of different capital cities being featured each month which allowed for different types of prizes to be won. On the whole this is an excellent place to play bingo and is highly recommended.
