Rio Bingo Review
2014 made the bingo world a little more exciting thanks to Mandalay Media’s newer bingo site – Rio Bingo. Rio Bingo provides an exotic backdrop, a wealth of bingo games, and a big bonus to fund your play.
Get Big Bonuses at Rio Bingo
For first time depositors, Rio Bingo offers a big bonus to welcome you. To maximise your bonus funds at Rio Bingo, simply deposit £20. Making a £20 deposit will trigger the first time welcome bonus, as you instantly receive a 300% match on your money up to a maximum bonus of £60. The £60 bonus combined with your first £20 deposit lets you start your day at Rio Bingo with £80. There is a 4x “rollover requirement” when you accept the Rio Bingo bonus, as you must wager the equivalent amount of the bonus received plus the deposit made to satisfy their wagering requirement.
The Rio Bingo reload bonus is enhanced for your second and third deposits. When you top up for the first time, you get a 150% to £150 redeposit bonus. On your second top up, you get 100% to £100 on your reload. Likewise, all bonuses carry a wagering requirement of four times the amount of your deposits made plus bonus funds issued before you can cash out your deposit. Your winnings from Rio Bingo can be cashed out at any time without penalty.

UK players utilizing Rio Bingo’s preferred deposit method of MasterCard will receive quicker payouts, as Rio Bingo completes UK MasterCard withdrawals in a maximum of 5 days.

NETeller withdrawals are completed within five days, while wire transfers take a maximum of ten days. Both banking methods post from UK Regulated Lim on behalf of Rio Bingo.
Finally, you can request a cheque to receive your winnings from Rio Bingo. Cheques typically arrive within 5-8 days if you reside in the UK.

Rio Bingo Games
In terms of games, Rio Bingo offer a variety of bingo games and bingo rooms. You can play guaranteed jackpot bingo games and progressive jackpot bingo games. In addition to the variety of bingo games, you can spin the progressive slots games, play traditional slots, scratch games, table games, and other exciting side games.
On a personal note, I have to say that Rio Bingo is home to one of my favourite slots games – Wizard of Oz slots. If you enjoy playing slots, you must be off to see the wizard. In my opinion, there is no bonus better than the “flying monkey bonus”! Any time I get the opportunity, I simply follow the yellow brick road to the Wizard of Oz game and I manage to entertain myself for hours on end.
Final Thoughts on Rio Bingo
Not that I am complaining, but there has been very little in the “new” department for me to get excited about in terms of bingo sites. Rio Bingo is like a breath of fresh air. The site has an exciting, yet relaxing theme about it and the overall welcome bonus package is far better than that of its peers. After spending the day playing at the newest bingo site of 2014, I felt as if I just completed a long overdue vacation. We initiate our coverage of Rio Bingo with an overall “B” mark and we look forward to seeing this site’s popularity boom!
