And so it begins
On February 5, 2017, a member initially posted a complaint calling BitBingo rogue for not paying a cashback bonus on February 5, 2017.
Their welcome bonus boasts 200% on your first deposit but players must read the offer in its entirety to realize that it's not granted at once but rather in 25% increments as cashback on losses. There's no doubt that this is not a great offer but that's not the problem. The real problem here is that they can't even honor an offer as crappy as that.
The actual complaint: 'Please be aware that after depositing here twice and over 40 emails/chat request (they say they have chat support!) Please know that the "200% bonus" is NOT really a bonus but a "cashback" 25% released over a period of days,25% per day gmt +2 hours everyday at midnight if you lost (equaling up to 200% of your original deposit) and NOTHING has been put in my account! Waited 48 hours now, NOTHING added "33ish PENDING" and I would avoid this site like the plague!'
Where is the Live Help?
Live chat is offline day and night in any time zone. Players may send messages while support is unavailable but no one ever responds. For LBB, as affiliates, it's the same deal. They have a messaging system within the affiliate program and after 4 messages, it was clear that we were being ignored too. Needless to say, we weren't happy.
Email Couldn't be Found?
While our affiliate messages seemed to get lost somewhere in cyberspace, we sent a private message to the official bingo rep and, of course, no reply there either. We then sent an email to the address listed on the rep's forum account, which was firstname.lastname@example.org. Lo and behold, our email was immediately rejected with the following message:
Address not found
Your message wasn't delivered to email@example.com because the address couldn't be found. Check for typos or unnecessary spaces and try again.
It's been nearly one month and we haven't heard a single peep from anyone at BitBingo. Based on the lack of response and failure to make good on their bonus offer, we have slapped a warning on them. We do not recommend that anyone deposit here, in fact, don't even bother registering period.
As for the outstanding complaint, it's unfortunate that we couldn't mediate but it's not due to a lack of effort on our part. The player also confirmed that their bingo account had been closed. After two deposits and umpteen messages, they close the player's account. Trifling!

This is really bad business practice, I must admit. They could have been a good bitcoin bingo site if they were taking care of their players.

I feel sorry for the players who claimed the fake offers and earned some money there. The easiest thing for the casino is to ignore the messages. They simply don't want to take responsibility and face the truth. Fortunately, they are caught red handed.

Its always worth checking out licensing info, and this site does not have one. Thus, I would never risk my money there.

How rude you should be to ignore all that complaints: by email, chat, etc. Every aspect of communication is blocked. So what we can expect from website like this one. We can only hope they are busted before we deposit there.

Classic scam. Thanks for the warning guys.

I'm sorry for this member and who knows how many others scammed by this site. At least now we know they are not to be trusted, a month of silence on their part is more than enough to make a verdict. They won't even try to lie about the situation, they got the money from the player and that's all they care about. One or...
I'm sorry for this member and who knows how many others scammed by this site. At least now we know they are not to be trusted, a month of silence on their part is more than enough to make a verdict. They won't even try to lie about the situation, they got the money from the player and that's all they care about. One or two deposits from each victim is all they need. I'm sure they will soon disappear into thin air.Show more

They don't even have a security certificate for their page, definitely not a place to spend any money at.

I guess we will have to wait for another bitcoin bingo site; this one is certainly not the one. I'm surely not going to play here - it just causes lots of trouble. They didn't even pretend to look like they were trying to solve this issue - they just disappeared.
