On 3rd May 2009 one internet bingo site is closing its virtual doors to all its players. The site was previously advertised heavily when Bingo Night Live was still airing but today we received an email informing us that that ITV Bingo is to close. Whilst the email is detailed enough about how you should spend or withdraw any funds remaining in your account it does not explain the decision for the closure.
With the news that ITV Bingo is to close it’s not all doom and gloom for any players that have an account registered at this internet bingo site. Players will be able to use their bingo username and passwords at Party Bingo although they will have to deposit funds in their account at Party Bingo to be able to play bingo there.
The email containing the news that ITV Bingo is to close simply said:
ITV Bingo is being withdrawn as a service on 3rd May 2009. We have very much appreciated having you as a player hope you have enjoyed the experience. You can continue to play until the service closes on 3rd May. After this date please proceed to cash out any remaining funds in your ITV Play Account as soon as possible, as we will be closing the accounts at the end of October 2009. Any unclaimed monies at that time will be donated to charity.
Please note that any outstanding bonuses will expire at approximately 05:00 UK time on 1st May, 2009. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
The ITV Bingo service has been powered by PartyGaming. If you would like to continue playing with their Party Bingoservice after 4th May, 2009, please visit www.partybingo.com where you can log in and sign up using the same user name and password. You will need to deposit into your new PartyAccount to then start playing.
Is the news that Bingo Night Live is not returning to our screens the reason behind the news that ITV Bingo is to close? We suspect that without the heavy marketing and advertising that came with Bingo Night Live that this internet bingosite hasn’t been generating the revenue nor seen the success it once had whilst Bingo Night Live was on air.
