We list the UK Bingo Brands closing as and when they close and regularly update this article to include the latest closures. The newest closures will be at the top of the article, followed by older ones you can reference. It is essential to track this as you might have a balance to claim on Bingo sites that are shutting down.
Novomatic Shut Down BingoCams – March 2023
One of the oldest bespoke Bingo sites in the United Kingdom is shutting its Virtual Doors and Cameras at the end of March 2023. BingoCams will be no more after the end of the month. The reason provided was that it was old and required a lot of fixes. A pretty sad ending for one of the pioneers of the UK Bingo craze.
Tau Bingo Sites Closing – April 2023
Tau has been a force in UK Bingo circles and has launched many Dragonfish & No Wager Bingo brands. It appears they are heading in a different direction, as a number of their bingo sites have been shut down or are in the process of closing down.
The latest Tau Bingo site closures as of the 4th of April 2023 are as follows:
- Bingo Besties
- Dabber Bingo
- Sundae Bingo
These closures are the latest announcement of Bingo site closures from the group, which has also terminated bingo sites on other networks like Blush Bingo.
Cashcade Brands Closing
It was the beginning of the end for many Cashcade brands when PartyGaming acquired the company and then later by GVC Holdings. This is because the team behind Cashcade had a passion for their product, but this got lost in the sale, and as such, all of the bingo brands became much of a muchness.
Throw into the mix that when GVC Holdings got hold of the brands, they stopped using marketing partners, and many of the brands from Cashcade weren’t getting the advertising and marketing they once were.
It was ok for Foxy Bingo, which has built an impressive player base through excellent marketing and advertising on television, but for other brands, it was the beginning of the end.
In December of last year, several Cashcade Bingo brands closed to players, and these include:
- Female Bingo
- Top Ten Bingo
- Bingo Broadway
- Little Big Bingo
On 31st August 2018, the following bingo brands are also closing:
- Bingo Scotland
- ITV Bingo
- Telly Talk Bingo
So that leaves just the following Cashcade bingo brands still up and running:
- Think Bingo
- Foxy Bingo
- Rollover Bingo
- Cheeky Bingo
Cozy Games – Electraworks Bingo Powered Sites
But, we recently received an email telling us that on 3rd September 2018, the 888 Group would no longer be the operator for Think Bingo. Operations and marketing for this brand are moving to Electraworks Ltd, which currently promotes predominantly Cozy Games brands!
Are we set to see Think Bingo move to new bingo software? Other 888-powered sites under Electraworks are Foxy Bingo, Cheeky Bingo and Get Minted Bingo. Are these set to make a move too? We won’t know specifics until 3rd September when operations are set to move from 888 to Electraworks, and we’ll be there to see accurately what this means for bingo players.
