Created by Mandalay Gaming (The same folks that brought Costa Bingo and Sing Bingo to market), City Bingo is a no deposit Dragonfish bingo site that gives all new players £5 free cash on registration.
Getting started is simple. Just register through a link on this page, create your account, verify your card details and automatically start playing with your £5 fully funded account.
Add to that the site provides a 250% first deposit bonus, meaning you get £35 of playable funds from a £10 deposit, you will have a decent chunk of change to go after that jackpot prize you always wanted.
The lobby showcases all the free games & jackpots up for grabs.
The games software is well design and will undoubtedly look familiar.
Upon landing on the homepage, I have to say that the site didn’t exactly make me feel super welcome. I would go out on a limb to say that it’s ‘okay’ designed, but it in reality, it doesn’t look all that great. The colour scheme looks a bit brash and garish, plus some of the graphics are a bit blotchy. Plus in today’s climate where bingo sites are competing for your business arm over fist, I don’t think this reflects amazingly well on City Bingo. One thing I did like though was the Cat mascot who always seemed to have a cheeky smile on his face. I get that with a site like this you want to give a feel of all the sights and sounds of a busy bustling city metropolis, but in all honesty, they have missed the mark slightly on this one.
That said, once you have created an account and logged in to the site, the lobby area and games are much more as you would expect from any reputable Dragonfish site. It really is like it’s another site, with clean graphics and an easy to use interface. Remember, there is a good reason people tell you not to judge a book by it’s cover – this is that reason.
Like any self respecting Dragonfish site, you will find 75 ball and 90 ball bingo games. Likewise, it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to get started playing here, this is because there are plenty of games with a 1p ticket price, not to mention all the free game choices out there if you are skint.
Speaking of free games, there is a whole section dedicated to everything free at City Bingo. You see the section is called ‘Freebie Kiosk’ and has free games for real cash prizes starting every few minutes 24/7. Prize pots won’t set the world on fire and are just £1 and £2, but they are open to everyone, whether you are a funded or unfunded player. So if you have some time to spare, you can easily play a few free games and top up your account balance.
Not only that though, there is a £15 prize game every 60 minutes for all new players who make their first deposit. For old hands, their is ‘The Daily Depositor’ which provides a £20 free game, likewise every 60 minutes, so if you do decide to fund your account, be aware that there are some serious perks for doing so. Add to that the fact that you can also get 50% extra free when you reload your account, it really does make City Bingo seem like one of the best sites around.
There is another tab dedicated to jackpots only, where you can see all the big games that are up and coming that week. Looking at the tab myself, I can see there are games with prize pots ranging from £125 all the way up to £5000 when you play the ‘Main Attraction’ every Sunday at 9PM. What’s more, ticket prices are free, so it really is a must try if you do register at the site.
When it comes to slots games, City does not let the side down. If you fancy a few cheeky spins of the reel, you can do so playing top games like Cleopatra, Sugar Train and Fluffy Favourites. Fluffy Favourites has a massive progressive jackpot where you can win up to £30,00 if you hit it big.
Finally, it’s definitely worth mentioning that unlike some Dragonfish properties, City Bingo provides a great mobile and tablet gaming experience. After you have created an account through the site, head over to the Android or Apple app store depending on your device, and download the app. You will see that because the app is new, it works even better than the standalone site and is really a great selling point.
With a 250% first deposit bonus, a £5 no deposit required bonus & a plentiful supply of 50% reload bonuses, City Bingo is definitely up there with the best in terms of bonus and promotion value.
Add to that the fact that they have some pretty amazing, large jackpot games, giving away cash sums of up to £5000, plus free games available round the clock, it really is easy to see that City Bingo is a must play at bingo site.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a perfect site. Some things are not completely polished and some players may not have a great first impression of the site. That said, all things considered, this really is a great place to play at and I highly suggest you give it a go.
