One name on every bingo players’ lips is ‘City Bingo’: one of the most popular Dragonfish bingo sites. Live it up in the city, with well-known generosity towards players, and special promotions right on your doorstep.

Live since 2011, the site is ruled by the cuddly cuteness of City Cat. In the years since, they’ve really made a name for themselves amongst players. Read on to find out why.

Welcome Bonus Package

City Bingo's 250% welcome bonus

Regardless of whether you prefer London or Milan, the City Bingo’s welcome package is sure to appeal to you. It starts with a cosmopolitan £5 no deposit bonus and continues with great deposit offers. That £5 freebie is yours a soon as you complete registration – not bad for one minute’s work!

The deposit offers are just as generous: there’s a 250% bonus for up to £50 in funds. Bargain hunters will be pleased to hear that you can deposit much lower amounts though – as little as £10 – and you will still qualify for the generous welcome package rates.

Then, it’s into the bingo lobby to really start enjoying those freebie funds.

Pros

  • Exclusive promotions and jackpot games
  • Ace bingo rooms  
  • Friendly chat hosts
  • New mobile site

Cons

  • Just 75 and 90 ball bingo
  • Perhaps too much going on for some players

Bottom Line

We love City Bingo. They’re a site like no other – a rare find, considering the amount of bingo sites around. With unique promotions you have to be in it to win it, and what better way to introduce yourself than by accepting the City’s no deposit welcome offer.

 

In depth

Banking

Placing deposits

When you pop up to the cashier window on City Bingo, you’ll be greeted with a range of deposit options. These can be made from £5, are free of fees and can be placed with the following payment methods:

  • Credit Card (MasterCard)
  • Debit Card (Visa/Maestro)
  • Neteller
  • Paysafecard

Making Withdrawals

You won’t be able to withdraw any winnings from the no deposit bonus until you satisfy City Bingo’s wagering requirements. Once you have done so, and have enough cash in your account, you’ll be able to request a withdrawal. Barring paysafecard, you can choose any of the methods above as the means to claim your funds. The entire process consists of a 48 hour approval period then up to 5 days for the transfer to take place.


Games

We’re going on a trip to our favourite place, Game City, with this bingo site. We’ll be taking a peek into their bingo and games lobby to check out what exactly is awaiting us there.

Bingo Games

As we’ve mentioned, this site doesn’t have bingo variants – just the 75 and 90 ball versions. However, what is lacking in variety is made up for in quality and frequency. You’ll even find progressive jackpot bingo games here!

Progressive jackpot bingo is fantastic on busy bingo sites like City Bingo, as the jackpot just keeps on increasing. The more players that are in the room, the bigger the jackpot gets; the bigger the jackpot gets, the more you could win. It’s a brilliant time to get social too, as the chat hosts will usually get things started with some chat fun.

Guaranteed jackpots

Guaranteed jackpots are also a big feature on site. Super popular with players, these games will just keep on going until someone wins the jackpot. It’s just another factor that gives City Bingo an edge.

The bingo schedule is always busy and the lobby is usually filled will players making their way to different rooms. With games starting every few minutes, there’s always something different to play or a new jackpot to win. The lobby’s layout makes it easy to move between rooms, so you never feel like you’re stuck for too long.

Don’t miss a beat: the countdown timer is always racing down to the next game – act fast to take part.

Other Games

While bingo might be the capital of this site, there are a range of other games on offer in the suburbs. Check out the slots section to unlock a destination filled with jackpots and adventures. Games such as Fluffy Favourites, Shopping Spree and White Wizard feature on this site.

If you’re new to slot games then you can check out the paytables to see how the game works. This is where you’ll gather hints about the bonus rounds and wild symbols. Then set your wager and the number of games you wish to play, sit back... and watch the jackpots roll in.

Those who really want to up the ante on their gaming time can take a visit into the casino section of the site. These games are thrilling, and will really spice up your visit to site. Practice your poker face and who knows, you could be taking part in the World Series of Poker before you know it!

Scratchcards and instant win games can also be found on site, although theirs is a smaller selection. Play mini games like Arcade Horses, Hi Lo or Keno to change up your play style in a flash. With all of the entertainment on hand here, you’re bound to turn your City breaks into city stays. Did we mention that they’re also adding to these games on a regular basis? You can find something new to play almost every time you get online!


Performance

This site has a really fun theme, showing off landmarks from the world’s most famous cities. It’s not just about enjoying the view though – the site has a lot going on underneath too. This means that it’s ultra responsive and easy to use, which is always great to see in a bingo site.

Mobile

The mobile option for City Bingo players is actually a fairly new one; the site wasn’t among the first to go mobile. It’s a mobile site that looks to offer the same experience as their desktop version, just on a smaller scale. To encourage players to take to their mobile devices, this site offers mobile exclusive games and promotions. Definitely something to be checking out!


Support

Help is never cities away, and the on-site FAQ section is a good place to start. If you can’t find what you’re looking for then you can feel free to get in touch with the customer service team. You can contact the 24/7 service through phone, email and live chat any time you might need a helping paw.

Extra features

Win Souvenirs

Win souvenirs at City Bingo

City Cat is always visiting new cities and he collects souvenirs for his loyal players. You can win these in the exclusive weekly bingo games, all of which are reasonably priced. These are 90 ball bingo games – and any player that gets a Full House will win the prize of the week. So, even if you’re not a fan of globetrotting, there’s always something to look forward to from the big City.

Exclusive Promotions

City hot spots promotion

At first you’ll find that each time you head into the promotions section of City Bingo, you’ll probably find something new. While these might become a bit samey after a while, it’s ace that these are offers exclusive to the players on site. There are tourneys, prize games and even special deposit offers to be claimed, and as they change pretty often, it’s best to take advantage as soon as you spot them. Promotions are often tied to seasonal events, so look out for deals on Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and all your other favourite times of year!

In a world where so many sites simply use networked promotions, we love to see sites that do things their own way. For that reason, we’re giving City Bingo a huge thumbs up.


Final Comments

City Cat does an excellent job of representing everything that this site stands for, with a great big grin and an array of presents for players. City Bingo take feedback seriously and are always looking for ways to make their players happier. They’ve used their time online wisely to sharpen up on what players want: a gold-star example to all other bingo sites.

With all of those promotions coming and going, you might feel a bit overwhelmed... but never fear, City Cat will guide you to the best, and you can go from there.
