All the games on this website have been licensed from the gaming jurisdiction of Gibralter. The Gibraltar Regulatory Authority ensures that all license holders comply with its stringent regulations regarding fair play and prize pay outs.
As well as extensive analysis of every company who applies for a license to ensure the complete integrity and responsibility of its licensees, the Commission has also adopted a series of technical standards that are applied to ensure that the games offered are fair to players.

Cassava Enterprises (Gibraltar) Limited believe very strongly that it has a responsibility towards the welfare of all players on the site. Bingo is a social game and a form of entertainment to be enjoyed without excess. We ask that you spend only what you can afford to spend, and we strongly recommend that you fix a weekly or monthly budget so that you won't be short of money for the other things in life.
If at anytime during your play you feel that you are spending too much then we kindly request that you either reduce your limits or suspend your account. Should you wish to suspend your account then please call our Customer Support team on 0800 279 4501 or email us stating the amount of time you would like your account closed for. We aim to deal with your request within 48 hours but cannot guarantee this. As soon as your account is closed you will receive a reply. Please note that we will not be held responsible for your actions while your account remains open.
Player Protection Limits and Self Exclusion
All players can set limits to the amount of money they can spend on our games. You can set a limit on both your deposits and withdrawals each day, week and month. These limits are set by default to £2,000 / day, £5,000 / week and £20,000 / month. If you wish to change your limits you can do so by contacting any member of the Customer Support Team using the form on our support page.
If, at any stage, you become concerned about your gaming behavior, you can request one of the following:
- 24 hour cooling off period
- A seven day cooling off period
- A 14 day cooling off period
- A one month cooling off period
- A two month cooling off period
- A three month cooling off period
- A six month self-exclusion period
During these periods we will block your account. Any new accounts you might attempt to open during the exclusion period will also be blocked as soon as detected. In addition, we will take all reasonable measures to make sure you do not receive any promotional material during this time.
During the self-exclusion period, the request for temporary blocked access will be enforced and irrevocable. You may call our Member Support Team to re-activate your account once the self-exclusion period has ended. We reserve the right at our own sole discretion to withhold all deposited and related monies in relation to such accounts.
You acknowledge and agree that should you choose to self-exclude from any of the Sites, you shall not be permitted to open or use a new account with any other Site operated by the Company during your selected self-exclusion period, until such self-exclusion has been lifted and the original account reopened. In the event you are in breach of the foregoing, we shall be entitled to block any new account you open with another Site, forfeit any funds you may deposit (or have previously deposited) therein, and shall not be liable to refund to you any funds you may have wagered or won through such account.
You can request a self-exclusion or cooling off period by calling our Member Support Team. Representatives are available by phone and email between 10am and 6pm every day.
If you are unsure about requesting self-exclusion, ask yourself the four questions below:
Is gaming interfering with your work or other responsibilities?
Are you trying to make up for prior gaming losses?
Are you recovering from an addictive disorder?
Do you play under the influence of alcohol or other influences?
If your answer is yes to at least one of them, we recommend that you request self-exclusion and seek professional help.
Underage Gambling and Parental Controls
In the United Kingdom, it is illegal for someone who is under 18 years of age to gamble. Closer Bingo reserves the right to ask for proof of age from any player and to carry out checks to verify the information provided. Customer accounts may be suspended and funds withheld until satisfactory proof of age is provided. In order to avoid underage gambling, we may undertake a search with a third party for the purpose of verifying that you are 18 years of age or older.
If young people have access to your computer and internet connection, please keep your username and password confidential at all times. There are a number of third party applications that parents or guardians can use to monitor or restrict the use of their computer's access to the internet, including:
