A move in October 2012 saw XBingo close its virtual bingo doors and re-open as BGO Bingo. It migrated all of its players over to BGO Bingo therefore the following XBingo review is for informational purposes only so won't be updated. All the play links on this page have been changed to BGO Bingo as this site replaced XBingo when it closed.
XBingo opened its virtual doors hot on the heels of Fancy Bingo, another recently launched internet bingo site from Mandalay Media. Other sites behind this name include Costa Bingo, City Bingo and Sing Bingo, which are all powered by the 888/Dragonfish software. However, don’t be fooled into thinking XBingo is anything like these brands because it isn’t. The decision to beta test the unique software using players from Facebook means that XBingo has ironed out any issues that players may have been unhappy with before the site was officially launched.
There is clever use of animation at XBingo that brings a different feel to that of many other online bingo sites and the Out of This World/Sci-Fi theme is one that will appeal to players of both genders. You have a set of options at XBingo in the bingo rooms that you can change to suit you when playing bingo, such as the colour and style of your dabber and Chat Room preferences at XBingo.

|Summary||XBingo Site Review|
XBingo has also recognised the growing popularity of social media and integrated much of this into the features of this internet bingo site. The ability for XBingo players to make use of avatars which will then be displayed if you feature on the winner’s board, is just one of many features at XBingo. You can also invite your friends to join at XBingo by simply clicking on the ‘invite friends’ button in the bingo room and sending them an email or a link. But we have to remember, XBingo is still only in its infancy and there could be many more exciting things to come.
Registration at XBingo is an easy process, just simply fill out the straight forward form then you will be able to explore what this internet bingo site has to offer. There is also a 200% first deposit bonus for new XBingo online bingo players on a deposit as little as £10, followed by a further 50% bonus on subsequent deposits.

This site is terrible, the XBingo games are ok but chat games non existent and the chat hosts are ignorant. The responses are slow from the XBingo customer support and withdrawals are left on site for 3 days so you can reverse wait around a week for withdrawals and even longer as XBingo request photographic identification pictures of bank card and copys of utility bills for withdrawals as low as £20 - anything to stop you actually making a withdrawal of any kind and when you do send these the response is days, XBingo its a rediculous site and a con.
BallsUp Bingo Response
Whilst we understand your frustration we urge all players to check the full terms and conditions regarding withdrawals on any online bingo site when they first sign up. On the rules pages on XBingo it states that once you have made a withdrawal request it will be processed in three business days and to make sure the right person receives the withdrawals that may ask to see identification to confirm your identity and ownership of the credit/debit card. All the rules regarding the withdrawal process at XBingo are available to view on the rule page at this online bingo site.

XBingo is probably the worst bingo site of all time. Im surprised to see this site advertising on ITV1 as its that poor. I joined because I saw the ITV1 ad. Alarm bells rung to begin with as there was no live support at XBingo but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. I was disappointed to see no chat games at all.
The rooms at XBingo were also VERY tight (such as late at night in the "true blue" room, 100+ players, 5p a card, but overall jackpot was lucky to be more than £5). I used to be quite a high roller when I played at XBingo. In a few days I deposited around the £2000 mark..... not to play bingo however... but instead the slots and blackjack which were fairly tight.
I hit a run of very good luck at XBingo and won £3250 (£1250 profit) and cashed out. The very bad news is they leave your withdrawal as pending and reversible for a very mean 5 working days. The fact is XBingo do that in the hope you reverse and lose it (a tactic used by many bingo sites/casinos for years now... bottom line is if some can pay you in 2 days, then its rubbish using the excuse "for security reasons"). 3 days on and I have a request for identification. I send it in. 3 or 4 days later when its past the 5 working day pending time and the XBingo withdrawal still not processed and no email to confirm XBingo have my ID. I emailed XBingo to ask whats going on.
A week later no reply still from XBingo. But in that time they were still sending me a lot of promo emails for bonuses and games. The waiting got too much and I reversed and lost all my money. I then decided to terminate my account and 4 days later XBingo finally got back to me which means if I hadnt slipped up and fallen for their tactic it would of taken further time to be paid (over 2 weeks in total). Since then I have quit gambling completely. If a site widely advertised on tv acts like this then I simply cant trust any online gambling website anymore. Support are very slow to get back to you, payouts are the slowest I have seen at any bingo site, games are not too great. Avoid XBingo!!! you will regret it otherwise!!
