Overview - Bingo site review - Top 5 Bingo Sites

INTRODUCTION

Roll up to Circus Bingo, the greatest online bingo show! Circus Bingo ranks right at the top of the best new bingo sites to launch in 2015. Owned by Lindar Media, Circus Bingo is the flagship brand in a family of bingo sites, including some other recognisable names like Oink and Pixie Bingo. The site is themed around Pablo the peanut, who works at Circus Bingo (along with other nuts) and welcomes first time depositors to the Circus experience in an exclusive game called ‘Pablo’s Nuts’ that rewards you with extra bingo bonus cash on every deposit!

Good game selection
Software and graphics - Bingo site review - Top 5 Bingo Sites

SOFTWARE/GRAPHICS

This new dragonfish site baffled industry experts when they first saw it as they thought it was a totally new standalone site! Circus Bingo has created a new and unique template that makes it refreshingly different to other sites on the dragonfish network and thankfully the same is true of the gaming experience at Circus Bingo. The software is quick to load, and both reliable and secure – exactly what you need from a bingo platform.

Bonuses and Promotions - Bingo site review - Top 5 Bingo Sites

BONUSES & PROMOTIONS:

What You Get

Circus Bingo offers three sign up bonuses for the price of one! First, for just a £10 deposit, there’s a huge 350% match first deposit bonus, giving you £45 to play with! Second, Pablo pops up and offers you the chance to win up to an extra £5 if you can pop enough of his nuts! Pablo’s Nuts is an addictive little game is a bit like Candy Crush and has equally addictive music! Depending on what device you are playing on, drag the mouse or your finger over matching nuts to pop them. The more nuts you can pop in one go, the more points you get and the more bonus you unlock. Third and finally, all new first time depositors receive 6 FREE tickets to the £1K Big Top game, where you can win £1,000 real cash every month! Added together that is more than £50 worth of freebies for just a £10 deposit!
Freaky Friday has an amazing £100,000 and a Mercedes SLK up for grabs for Circus players and Mystery Monday awards real prizes – but you have to be in it to find out what… could be a HD TV, could be loads of shopping vouchers, could be a holiday! Every month, there are unique promotions on both Bingo and Slots with cash and real prizes to be won and as well as getting goes on Pablo’s Nuts with every deposit, you can also receive up to £20 worth of bonus goes by completing Pablo’s High Striker challenges!

What You Need to Know

The deposit bonus comes with the usual strings attached, and it’s crucial to read the Ts & Cs before signing up for the bonus offer. Wagering requirements on the bingo bonus stands at 4x, while bonus spin winnings must be wagered 80x before being eligible for withdrawal. You also have a 7 day window in which to use the bonus, which is only available in any case to new players over the age of 18. Maximum winnings from the slots bonus are £5.

These terms are too restrictive, and there are better bonuses, with more acceptable terms and conditions out there. It’s not that it’s a bad bonus – it’s still a bonus, after all. It’s just that the terms are so restrictive as to make it too difficult to practically use the bonus, or to win any money from it. This only serves to disappoint unsuspecting or unsavvy customers, and undermines what is otherwise a great place for new players to play.

Bingo games - Bingo site review - Top 5 Bingo Sites

GAMES:

As part of the Dragonfish network, there are plenty of 75 and 90 ball bingo games running all the time with plenty of players and good prize pools to play for. Circus Bingo has gone further though and created a range of promotions exclusively for Circus Bingo players that are superb value as they are not available to anyone else on the network.

Circus Bingo also has a huge selection of slots games from some of the most renowned providers including favourites such as Barcrest’s Rainbow Riches, Eyecon’s Fluffy Favourites and NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest.

MOBILE

If you’re on an Android device and hoping to download an app for Circus Bingo, you’re about to be disappointed – there isn’t one. The only app they offer is for iOS users, and while the app itself is attractive, easy to use and fast-loading, it’s just a shame this doesn’t extend to their Android customers. If they are looking for a way to improve their offering, this seems like low-hanging fruit – an easy win, that would provide their players with the flexibility they’ve now come to expect from a leading bingo site.

Aside from the iOS app, players on any device can access the Circus Bingo mobile site. This is the same as the desktop site, which is designed to be fully responsive and native on any browser or screen size. While not quite as quick as the app version, the mobile site is an acceptable substitute for most players, and ensures you can still play on the go, regardless of your device OS.

Deposit and withdrawal - Bingo site review - Top 5 Bingo Sites

DEPOSIT/WITHDRAWAL:

Depositing and withdrawing at Circus Bingo is easy! The following deposit and withdrawal methods are available:  Visa, MasterCard, Electron, Maestro, Neteller, PayPal, Paysafecard, Entropay and Wire Transfer.

SECURITY & TRUST

Circus Bingo is owned and operated by Lindar Media Ltd., a company specialising in developing online bingo brands and portals. They are also behind a number of other sites, like Oink Bingo and Pixie Bingo, giving them the strength in numbers players often look for when trying to verify the trustworthiness of a bingo site. Established in 2015, Circus Bingo has already gone on to win loyal players, with very little in the way of negative feedback doing the rounds about this bingo site.

Payments are processed by some of the most secure names in the industry. PayPal is available, for example, which ensures total security for your deposits and withdrawals. In the extremely unlikely event of a payment issue or hack, there are security features built in to PayPal, including arbitration processes, which can be filed in seconds – not to mention the fact that both payments, and the Circus Bingo platform are as secure as they can possibly be, thanks to robust SSL encryption.

As with most reputable bingo sites, Circus Bingo holds two separate licenses – one from the UK Gambling Commission, which is now a legal requirement for bingo operators in the UK, and a separate license from Gibraltar for international players. While the UK regime is arguably stricter, the fact that both UK and Gibraltar licensing authorities have an eye on Circus Bingo means you can rest assured in the knowledge they’re legit.

Negative reviews do exist, and some players in particular question why they don’t win too frequently. In reality, this is the nature of the game – you can’t win every time! As far as meaningful complaints are concerned, there aren’t really any, which is a good sign for a bingo site of this caliber.
