This website has now closed. Our review will be left up for historical and research purposes.

Cassava Enterprises Limited is known for creating fun bingo sites with entertaining themes, and with Rio Bingo, Cassava brings you the party atmosphere of the world-famous Rio Carnival along with big Brazilian bonus offers, jackpot games, and physical prizes in its monthly Gift Shop promotion. Our reviews team recently jetted off to join the party and discover whether it’s worth hopping on board the carnival float…

Rio Bingo Verdict

Apart from the no-deposit, welcome, and reload bonuses, there are some significant benefits that come with joining the Rio Bingo community. Playing daily jackpot games for as little as 5p, earning treats through the loyalty scheme, and going for gold in the £5k Street Party game each weekend are just some of our personal highlights. So, if Rio sounds like your kind of bingo site, make sure you join the party today!

Design & Usability

The Rio Bingo website is a riot of colour, featuring fireworks, tropical parrots, and sunny beaches throughout. The welcome offers, recent winners, daily jackpot game, and introduction to the site are all nicely presented on the homepage, and the top menu lets you easily take a more in-depth look at the game types, promotions, community pages, and loyalty club. As far as the themes of the different Cassava Enterprises bingo sites are concerned, Rio’s one of our favourites purely for its fun holiday vibe.

Software & Gameplay

Rio operates on the Dragonfish network, and while it runs its own promotions and jackpot games, it only offers the three bingo variants that Dragonfish software provides – 90-ball, 75-ball, and 5-line, which might seem a little stingy if you’ve experienced the profusion of variants on offer at Virtue Fusion sites, for example.

However, the desktop and mobile platforms both deliver a reliable and enjoyable playing experience. Plus, the chat facility, well-moderated bingo rooms, and option to enjoy side games (as well as standalone slots, scratch cards, and table games) make Dragonfish a popular choice for online bingo fans.

Safety & Security

Rio Bingo is regulated and licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and gives you full visibility of its privacy, fair play, and responsible gaming policies. All of the site’s pages use a secure URL, and your personal details are fully protected through the use of the latest data encryption technologies.

Payments & Withdrawals

Although you’re welcome to use traditional debit and credit cards like Visa, MasterCard, and Maestro if you wish, you can also make deposits via Paysafecard, wire transfer, or telephone.

The minimum and maximum accounts you can deposit in a single day are £5 and £2,000 while the minimum you can withdraw in a single transaction is £30. While we feel £30 is a little too high, it’s a standard policy that Cassava Enterprises applies at all its bingo sites. Withdrawals take 48 hours to process and complete within 2 to 7 days depending on your chosen banking method. Ideally, we’d like to see Rio introduce Paypal, Skrill, and Neteller in addition to the payment options listed above.

Customer Support

There’s nothing worse than hitting a brick wall when all you want to do is play games. But thanks to the well-designed Help menu, you can quickly view the rules of Rio’s 90-ball and 75-ball games, and read the “How to Play” guide and FAQs. If none of these solve your problem, you can get in touch with the knowledgeable support team 24/7 via email, telephone, or live chat.

Bonuses & Promotions

If you’re keen to join a site that offers you excellent value-for-money, Rio Bingo’s welcome offers should be music to your ears. Deposit £5 to your new account and you’ll get up to £60 of bonus cash through the 300% welcome bonus offer.
(300% Bonus: Non-funded players only. Offer valid once per player until further notice. Min dep. £5. Max bingo bonus £60. No code required. Wagering requirements: 4x Bonus & 4x Deposit. Bonus for bingo games only. Full T&Cs apply. 18+ only).

There’s also 150% waiting for you when you make your second deposit.
(Significant Terms: 18+ funded players only. Valid on second deposit only, code: NEW. Minimum deposit £10, maximum bonus £150. To withdraw a bingo bonus, players must wager 4 times the amount of their deposit + 4 times the bingo bonus funds received. Withdrawal restrictions apply. Bonus available for use on bingo games only. Full T&Cs apply).

You can even claim a 100% bonus on your third deposit.
(Significant Terms: 18+ funded players only. Valid on third deposit only, code: THIRD. Minimum deposit £10, maximum bonus £100. To withdraw a bingo bonus, players must wager 4 times the amount of their deposit + 4 times the bingo bonus funds received. Withdrawal restrictions apply. Bonus available for use on bingo games only. Full T&Cs. apply).

The only shame is that there’s not a no-deposit bonus.

Rio’s jackpot games run daily and give you the chance to grab a share of up to £2,500 a time for as little as 5p per card. In addition, there are seasonal promotions to mark special events like Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Christmas, a monthly Gift Shop game where you can win an ever-changing range of physical prizes, daily Beach Party and Samba Surprise games, and a weekly £5k Street Party. Usually, the promotions are bingo-based but occasionally, Rio runs the odd slots tournament.

Device Compatibility

While we praised Rio Bingo earlier for having a well-designed, easy-to-navigate website, there’s one glaring omission – a lack of a mobile page. There is, however, a banner on the homepage which lets you know you can play Rio Bingo games on your mobile or tablet. To access them, simply search for “Rio Bingo” using your device’s web browser (N.B., the mobile site should be compatible with the majority of smartphone and tablet devices), and log in or sign-up.

The HTML5 mobile site allows you access to the full range of Rio Bingo games, the cashier, current promotions, and a great selection of slots and casino games.

Variety & Originality

As the world of online bingo moves so quickly, it would be great if Dragonfish could extend its selection of games to compete more easily against the like of Virtue Fusion. Although, many players are perfectly happy with the selection of 90-ball, 75-ball, and 5-line games that are offered at Cassava sites like Rio.

Rio also performs well on the number of slots, bingo rooms, jackpot games, and free games it provides its players.

Loyalty & Rewards

There’s a difference between the loyalty programme and the VIP scheme at Rio Bingo.

The loyalty programme awards you loyalty points for winning chat games and taking part in special promotions. Once you’ve collected 1,000 points, you can redeem them for a £1 bonus.

The Diamond Club VIP scheme rewards you for making deposits to your account. There are five VIP classes, and to move up a level, you must meet the stated deposit amounts. For example, you’ll reach Bronze Level once you’ve deposited between £50 and £499. The VIP page explains what benefits you receive at each level such as free spins, deposit bonuses, complimentary game cards, access to VIP-only games, and exclusive merchandise.
