You may or may not already be signed up at the following online bingo sites, and if you haven’t, they should probably be best avoided (at least for the time being). Big Time Bingo, Bingo Palace, BingoSC, and OnlineBingo.com are reported to be closing, so they should not be played on or registered at.
Players who already have accounts with the above mentioned sites have been advised to “CHARGE BACK ALL TRANSACTIONS THAT YOU HAVE MADE IN THE LAST 6 MONTHS”. Having said that, it is unlikely that reimbursements can be obtained.
The sites listed are owned by gambling operators John and Mike Yates (father and son) and are closed or due to close due to debts owed to employees, investors, and service providers.
Furthermore, serious allegations have been made that Yates did not operate a fair gaming policy, utilising house players and software bots to prevent real players from winning. Such accusations, if true, do portray the pair as serious rogue operators. Players will always complain (losing money isn’t funny!), but sometimes you will come across a site where complaints have a genuine basis, and once you find a good number of gripes appearing in the chat facility it is definitely time to bail out.
There are further sites that have been listed as ‘to be avoided’; BestSlotCenter, BestSlotCentral, BingoVega, CasinoVega, and WorldwideVegas. Until the ‘fog lifts’ and all allegations are either supported or dismissed it is probably best to avoid these site and sign up somewhere else, somewhere with a good reputation. If you are looking for an online bingo site to sign up with, you could do a lot worse than sign up at Gala Bingo. Original article.
