Alterntatives To A Closed Bingo Site
2018 has seen a lot of bingo sites close their virtual doors. To help you find an alternative to a closed site we've put together our suggested options. These include big brands, independents and sites that we think are worth your time and money.
For each of the main networks we've selected a site that we think will be a good alternative.
What Happens When A Site Closes?
Site closures have increased in the last year or so but this generally occurs when a site is no longer active or viable. In other words the number of players impacted by a closure may be quite small. Usually players are notified of a closure with two to four weeks notice. They are given information about moving their accounts and/or withdrawing any funds. For example when ITV Bingo closed it's doors they notified players to sort out their accounts and then suggested they move to Cheeky Bingo.
Should I Worry About My Money?
As most mainstream brands are part of a bigger bingo network your money and account should be reasonably safe. For example a brand on Dragonfish may close but the accounts may be transferred to an alternative on the same network. The main concerns would be at independents, but then sites like Tombola are so big these days that we'd be very surprised to see them close. Newer independents though may be at risk so our advice is be cautious.
