Rio Bingo is a bright and colourful design from Dragonfish. The home page features a depiction of a Rio cityscape, with a silhouette of the Christ the Redeemer statue, together with a sunny bay full of yachts, a palm tree dotted beach, beneath a blizzard of ticker tape and party streamers. The football and stadium is a bit outdated now, given that the World Cup was in 2012, but maybe this will soon be redesigned with an Olympic theme.
Bingo wise, you get the standard offering of 90, 75 and 5 Line to choose from, along with some excellent slot and other instant games. It all looks great and is up to the usual high standard. The theme is carried throughout the site nicely too, so that at the time of review the promotions include a carnival type Street Party and a Samba Surprise. The party atmosphere is no façade either, with some decent prizes and juicy jackpots to go with the lively chat rooms.
Overall, this review finds that there is plenty of fun to be had when you play on Rio Bingo. Your friendly host Rio the Parrot has plenty to offer, so you wouldn’t want to miss out in this lively and colourful fiesta, would you?
Other Games Available
There is a good range of slot and other instant games to choose from on this site. There are around 30 different slot options including many of the most popular, such as Fluffy Favourites and Sugar Train. There is also a good selection of mini games, scratch cards and casino style “table” games to choose from as well.
The software for this site is supplied by Dragonfish.
This site runs the usual Dragonfish Diamond Club scheme. New players start at Blue Bird level (presumably geezers are allowed as well), before working their way through the four further tiers from Bronze Bods to Platinum Pros. You will need to be a Pro to reach this level though, as a total spend of over £5,000 is required to reach this level. Benefits as you rise through the metallic themed bands include access to exclusive VIP rooms with increasingly generous jackpots.
Funding Your Account
All the typically owned debit cards are available for you to use on this site, including Visa and Maestro. There are also several e-payment options to choose from, including the most popular, PayPal. This site also has a 24 hour Freephone number for you to call if you are having difficulties. The minimum deposit amount is just £5.
Can You Withdraw Your Winnings?
The general wagering requirement for this site is that you must wager 4 x your deposit + bonus in real cash before making a withdrawal. This means that if, for example, you were to deposit £10 and receive a bonus of £50, you would need to spend £240 (4 x £60) of your own funds before cashing out. These terms apply to bingo only, so the requirement when playing other games such as slots is far higher. The minimum withdrawal amount is £30. You can expect it to take around a week for your withdrawn funds to reach your own bank account.
The Legal Stuff!
Rio Bingo is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and is therefore considered safe to play for players based within the United Kingdom.
