Closed Bingo Sites
A few years back you couldn't go a single month without dozens of new bingo brands opening their doors. However since 2017 times have changed considerably for online bingo. The market has become saturated, taxes have increased and the industry is in the grip of more and more compliance.
Unfortunately this means that some bingo sites will close down. In general these tend to be smaller sites that have launched on white-label platforms like Jumpman, Dragonfish and Cozy Games. However big brands are not immune from closure as ITV, Think and Bingo Scotland have all shut their doors. This section will endeavour to keep you up to date with the latest bingo site closures.

What To Do If Your Bingo Site Closes
If you are a member of a bingo site that is due to close then you should receive advance notification. You will usually be advised to play through any bonuses and funds - or withdraw your cash account. This should be completed before the site closes down. Note that any bonuses not played will not be withdrawable and therefore lost.
If you miss the deadline then usually an email address will be provided so that you can contact the operator. They should be able to assist in sorting out any unwithdrawn cash funds. In a few cases, a bingo brand may move your account to a new site. They will provide you with details so that you can access your account.
