Crown Bingo is a UK based bingo site, and a newcomer to the online bingo scene. With a strong 100% to £250 sign-up bonus and some graphically appealing software, Crown Bingo have made a good start and are getting a lot of traffic to the site.
What stands out for Crown Bingo even more though, is that their bingo caller is none other than Karl Seth, the UK’s 2005 Bingo Caller of the Year. Crown Bingo are one of the most impressive new sites in recent times, and a very good place, particular for the European players, to play at.

Crown Bingo Software / Layout:
The second I visited Crown Bingo, I was immediately impressed with how fun and vibrant their webpage looked. I was happy to discover that their web-based software looked the same way. I had some problems initially with getting the lobby to load, had to give up on Firefox and had to delete temp files in IE, however it was worth the wait. Crown Bingo’s software is designed very well, laid out beautifully, and very simple to use. Bingo cards are on the right, chat box is on the bottom left, and the lobby information is at the top left, which changes to the numbers called when a game starts. They are also one of the only bingo rooms to offer “tabbed browsing”, in that to view all your bingo cards if you buy more than six, you use tabs, which makes the software feel even more fresh, and keeps the screen clean. At the top is a navigation toolbar allowing you to read help, change some options, or even view your bet history. Overall, very simplistic and excellent designed software make Crown Bingo a breeze to play. bingo star rating
Crown Bingo Traffic:
At UK peak times there will be over 200 players playing games, although only 20 or so in the chat, which is always a bonus when playing chat games. At other hours there is usually at least 50 players in each bingo game. bingo star rating

Crown Bingo Chat:
Chats are usually hosted by an upbeat and pleasant chat master, although there’s been times where there hasn’t been any chat masters in the room. Although there are often lots of players playing bingo, there is very few in the chat, which increases your chances of winning the chat games. The games are set up so that there can be two winners, with first place getting £1, and second place getting 50p. bingo star rating
Crown Bingo Game Variety:
Being a UK site, Crown Bingo doesn’t offer a wide variety of games, as instead you buy tickets ranging from 10p to £1, and then can win up to three times. First, you can win by filling a line on one of your cards, then two lines, then a full house. There is at least a two minute wait between games. bingo star rating
