GameVillage ran as a standalone bingo site for many years and was renowned for its chat hosts and players’ forum. In Autumn 2014 the site migrated to the Cozy platform. This was done in order to provide a more up to date and mobile friendly playing experience, and also to comply with the changes to UK gambling laws by coming under the umbrella of Cozy Games Management’s licence instead of having to apply for their own licence. The migration therefore had to take place somewhat hurriedly before the deadline for the new licences, and there were a number of teething problems which took a long time to be sorted out.
To start with GameVillage was NOT like other Cozy sites – many of the rooms, huge array of promotions and chat hosts were exclusive to their own Lucky Duck network which only had a couple of other sites on it, so you weren’t competing with thousands of players across a huge network. Sadly that is all now a thing of the past and since some time in 2018 GameVillage has had exactly the same bingo rooms as all the other Cozy sites.
