When Game Village first launched it was a standalone gaming site, featuring bingo, based upon the development of a strong community (a village in fact). We thought it had the potential to be the next Jackpotjoy with it's mix of unique games, prizes and points. However in 2015 the brand decided to move to new waters and established itself on the Cozy Games platform.

400% Welcome Bonus
New players are welcomed to GameVillage Bingo with a 400% bonus on a £10 first deposit. Wagering terms apply and are x4 for bingo and x40 for games. Unlike other sites powered by Cozy Games, new players aren't offered no deposit free bingo on sign up.
Before the move, Game Village Bingo used to offer new players a massive no deposit bonus. Sadly this is no longer available and, surprisingly, it's one of the few Cozy Games sites that doesn't offer a free trial. However this isn't the main difference between GVB and the likes of Gone, Harrys, Snappy and many others. GVB is in fact on it's own network - The Lucky Duck Network - which means it has it's own rooms and promotions.
Chip Van Bingo
The good news for old GVB players is that the familiar rooms of Chip Van, Village Inn and Elimination remain - although that's as far as the similarities go. Chip Van for example is now a 50 ball room but it does offer regular cheap games and freebies. In terms of game options there's plenty to enjoy including 50, 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo.
Promotions wise there's plenty to look through. There are deposit specials, weekly specials, monthly specials and just specials (which are things like £5 free for liking them on Facebook). There's nothing to compare to Game Village on the Cozy Games sites when it comes to promos - although they do tend to be "out there" at times.
Puddings & Slots
For example in Pudding Race you're asked to "guess the weight of the pudding in the Village Fair room to win up to £50 in bonus!". In case you're wondering how they figure this out - the total of the first balls called on the 11pm-11:55pm games in the Village Fair will decide the correct weight.
Away from bingo there's a whole raft of slots to enjoy including Fluffy Favourites, Avalon, Max Damage, Bust The Bank, The Hunt and Cupid's Arrow. GVB tend not to push the slots as much as other brands but they are there if you like them - and many are mobile friendly.
To be honest we much preferred Game Village when it was on it's own software and was more of a community games site with the likes of Supergems and Dingo. The Cozy Games offering is good but the community aspect - or village life - seems to have diminished. The forum and blog for example aren't exactly thriving. On the plus side there's some social activity on Facebook.
