City Bingo is the bright and colourful free to play for real cash site from the makers of Costa and Sing Bingo. It predominately features the cool character - City the Cat and is a well designed site based on a building with well known landmarks in silhouette in the background.
No Deposit Bingo Freebie!
The site is based on the usual free bingo for real cash format. Get £5 free when you register, but players must put in valid payment card details or it will not be added to your account. To be fair, City have clear notices about this during registration which is a lot better than some other bingo sites! Players can still open an account to play free games without entering card details, just without receiving the free £5.
City also offer a 250% deposit bonus for all new players! Deposit £10 and get to play with a total of £35. Further deposits made will receive a 50% bonus too. As a free bingo site encouraging players to pay to play is key, so City (like Sing and Costa) do offer special games for depositing players. There's a First Time Depositor Freebie for newbies and a Daily Deposit Reload Freebie for everyone else. Another depositor promo is called Break the Bank. If you play at City Bingo and make a deposit 7 days on the trot then you'll be invited to raid the bank vaults. You can win extra bingo points or even a cash prize.
If you like a bingo bonus then we suggest you do follow City Bingo on Facebook. If you allow them to update your profile when you play they'll give you £5 free. They will also pay you £10 for each friend who joins via the Facebook update. The only downside is you might not want your Facebook friends knowing how much bingo you're playing. If you don't have a Facebook account, there is still the option using the referral scheme to earn yourself £10 per friend that signs up to City.
Location, Location, Location!
One of the standout features of City, apart from all the free bingo that is, are the monthly travel themed promotions! Every month, City host themselves in a different location around the world, with previous cities including London, Monte Carlo, Rome and Paris. There is usually a big game towards the end of the month with high value prizes up for grabs and then the weekly City Souvenirs games which are either free or a couple of pence per card.
There is lots to do at City, you can play free bingo all day and night in City's 5 free bingo rooms. If you choose to pay for your games, there are cheap games on with higher jackpots, including the £125 guaranteed jackpots in the Golden Statue and City Tour Bus rooms on a Monday and Tuesday, all for 1p per card. Look out for the 75 ball and 90 ball progressive jackpots.
There are also instant tourneys and tourney marathons on the Sugar Train, Fluffy Favourites or Irish Luck slots. Don't forget to check out the VIP Diamond Club where players earn diamonds when depositing cash which can be exchanged for free bingo cards, bonus cash, deposit bonuses, real cash and prizes.
The only negative thing we found is that players cannot currently play on City Bingo via their iPhones or iPads. We are not sure if it will work on any other smartphones, as we don't have any to test with! Hopefully, this is something City will rectify in the near future.
