Rio Bingo Review

Sue Dawson

Rating: 4.1/5

Rating: 4.1/5

Rio Bingo is a Dragonfish bingo site that’s networked with Costa Bingo, Sing Bingo and others.  It was originally launched back in 2014.

Rio Bingo

The original theming of Rio Bingo was a bit of a mash-up; it was clearly influenced by the animated film of the same name but was also a fairly obvious attempt to cash in on the 2014 World Cup which was hosted in Rio de Janeiro.  The site’s mascot, Rio the parrot, was an immediate casualty three years later when the Gambling Commission banned gambling sites from using images with child appeal in promotional materials.  The site now frankly looks as if it has bits of the design missing – because it has!  What’s left has an understated carnival theme.

In any case, the theming doesn’t really matter as none of it really persists once you get inside the lobby and find that, for example, the “Booty Shake” jackpot game is actually called “Wednesday JP” and not only is it not exclusive to Rio Bingo or even the group of sites headed by Costa Bingo, it’s the game also known as “Wacky Wednesday” on the Dragonfish network.  Some of the rooms including the 52-5 Bingo Vegas game, various jackpot games and free rooms are equally widely networked.

What about the regular bingo rooms? They’re networked rather more widely than you might expect too – you’ll find most of them (under other names) at 888 Ladies and sister sites as well as at Costa and sister sites and this is bound to have a positive effect on player numbers and prize size.  Several of them are “real money only” i.e. no bonus allowed, but since the welcome offer and redeposit offers at Rio Bingo don’t involve bonus, this will only be an issue if you collect a bonus from a promotion or by redeeming Diamonds from the loyalty scheme.  Just in case, the rooms that accept bonus are helpfully collected into the Easy Access tab in the lobby.

Rio Bingo does still have some bingo rooms and weekly games that are only shared with other sites in the Costa group.  The Bingo Academy newbie room is one and unusually, the prizes you can win in this free bingo room are cash not bingo bonus.  There’s also the special rooms where the bingo tickets from the welcome offer can be used and again, the prizes are cash not bonus.  Another room of note runs a number of free games with substantial prizes on Friday evenings for players who have deposited that week.

Also inside the lobby on Rio Bingo and hidden away from public view are hundreds of slot games – many, many more than you would think from what’s on the Games page of the site and certainly a bige enough selection to keep even the most avid slots enthusiast happy.  Again, many of them are cash only but again, that won’t be an issue due to the nature of the welcome offer.

No bingo bonus, then, but plenty of other redeeming features to make Rio Bingo well worth checking out.
