When looking for places to play online bingo, you really need to compare all the different sites out there. Not all sites are equal and finding the best one for you really is a tough procedure.

Not only do you have to watch out for sites that don’t pay you, you also have to look out for sites with unfair bonus structure and obscene wagering requirements.

Because of this, we have decided to write a guide to finding the top bingo sites in the UK marketplace. Below are our criteria:

Long-standing Reputation

It’s important to use companies that have been around for a long haul. For example, some of the most reputable brands in the UK happen to be Mecca Bingo and Gala Bingo, this just so happens because they have had a land based bingo hall presence for the past 50+ years.  They are household names and everyone knows what you are getting when you deal with them.

The only exception to this rule is if you are dealing with a respected brand that is launching a new sister site. For example, industry leaders Costa Bingo, recently launched other brands such as Rio Bingo and Monkey Bingo, because their first website had such a brilliant reputation, this is then passed on the new sites as well.


You will find the wagering requirements of every single bonus hidden somewhere within the terms and conditions page of a bingo site. Not all brands have the same requirements, and some of them put some hidden criteria on you that make it very hard for you to withdraw your money and make a profit. We always urge all players to do their due diligence before spending any of there hard earned cash.

Try Before You Buy

No deposit bonuses are all the rage these days and we can fully get behind them. They are a great way to see what a bingo site has to offer and even sometimes win some real cash without risking any of your own.

The best no deposit sites will give you anywhere from £5 to £20 no deposit required. Any site that offers more than that is likely suspicious.

Functional Mobile Bingo App

Mobile apps are great for playing bingo on the go. Getting an app created is no easy matter, so it’s a good barrier to entry. Most fly by night operators, don’t have an established app and won’t spend time creating one.

The best operators have both Android and iOS apps, allowing you to play from your iPhone, iPad, or literally any modern smartphone device.

Look for good account functionality too, make sure you can deposit, withdraw as well as play games. The operator should talk about SSL encryption too.


Make sure you play only at bingo sites that are regulated by the UK gambling commission. The main gaming providers that have this regulation include 888/Cassava Enterprises, Cozy Games and Virtue Fusion. All of which are safe and secure places to spend your money.
