I believe there are 9 sites in the Worldbingo Network. There could be more since many sites are finding a benefit in being in a network. The sites I know of are:

USA Bingo
Bingo Comics
Bingo Topics
Bingo House
American Bingo
Bingo Gang
Bingo Oasis
Fair N’ Square Bingo
Wave Bingo

These sites seems to have a clean record, base on the fact that we have not received any complaints. The only negative aspect of these sites is they allow Gifting you can find out more about this in our THE HIDDEN TRUTH ABOUT SITES THAT ALLOW GIFTING forum. Here is a link to it:

I’m sure there are others that can offer more information.

BingoWorkz is also part of WBN. They have 5 or 6 rooms you can go into and different prices for cards. They also have all cash rooms, part cash and bbs and a free room. The drawbacks with these sites they all feed into the same place, they have gifting or as they call it transferring funds from one player to another which is a detriment to depositing players

If you have an acct at one of their sites you use the same nick to play at all their sites.

As with all sites make sure you read the rules and understand them and if you don't understand them ask until you do.

World Bingo Networks is now booting legitimate players who win small amounts every few days and then accumulate enough for a cashout of 75 dollars or more out and accusing them of cheating like they did to me. I have done nothing wrong and both me and my wife played and they new that hand our Drivers Licence IDs and addresses. We asked about this in advance if we could both play but never received a reply. (I signed up several weeks after my wife did). We both play mostly from work and occasionally from home. The following is the letter we both received. I believe others that work where I work also received these letters.

Dear Player,

As part of our on-going security procedures we conduct extensive audits on all player activity on a regular basis. As you are aware your present cashout requests have been delayed as part of this procedure.

Our audit teams have uncovered evidence of suspicious gaming activity emanating from your account and certain other accounts that appear to be linked to it. Unfortunately our operating rules mandate that any account flagged for this category of activity must be disabled immediately.

Winnings in your account will be voided and your last deposit refunded.

We are sorry to have to take this action, but the integrity of our games and the protection of our player base leaves us no other option. Thank you for your past support. We wish you luck in the future.

Regards,

Dee


I want to re-iterate that I have never done anything wrong and they are stealing our legitimate winnings while allowing the same players to win 5 and more times an hour. I basically rarely ever won a game but did manage to get Runners Ups that allowed me to cashout. I guess they dont like that. Beware here.

I WANT MY MONEY from them-- as does my wife. Hers totals 150 and mine is 130. I put up a notice on the bulletin board and asked if others were having the same problem and they said they got the same email. There are about 10 other players from my worksite (a large government facility) that I am aware of so far ---and it could be more as WBN does have a referral program-- who log in and out from there usually before or during shift changes. WBN was also notified of this fact about 6 weeks ago as well but seemed ok with it and let everyone keep playing.

Help please if you can.

Thanks

Rob D

Sorry about typos above. WBN knew we are a husband and wife. They have our personal IDs on file and addresses and other sensitive info to prove we are 2 separate individuals with an account each. My wife usually plays from home but when she is working she logs on from a hotspot somewhere on her lap top as she us not allowed to use her office computers for this.

I see that there are lots of families playing. ie husband and wife or parents and their kids and they seem to be doing ok and NOT getting kicked out -- but then again maybe they never try to cashout at all and just make deposits and hope to win the big jackpots.

Maybe they (WBN) are unhappy with us because we do not play their slots or casino games and therefore avoid their draconian 12x playthru. But I learned my lesson about playthrus from other sites that screwed me that way. So I just dont play those types of games PERIOD. To me they just made me feel like I was in a squirrel cage and could not get out of it till I quit that site.

I used to love WBN because they made me feel so welcome and I had fun when I could sit down and play for an hour or two and watch the action, even though I did not win all that often or much. But they have really hurt me with their false accusations and essentially calling me a cheater.

I had the misfortune of dealing with the notorious Laverne at BingoA2Z too, once upon a time so WBN seemed like heaven and I referred several players because of it.

Boy was I wrong. So sorry to you all who get burned at this site for no reason other than you got to cash out your winnings a few times.

Good luck to you all.

Rob D

Here is the other email I received in response to Dee:

Hi Rob,

Thank you for your email. The investigation is performed by our audit team in conjunction with our processors and the actual parameters of the investigation are not disclosed. Unfortunately their results are final as I am not able to override them however they have agreed that I can reactive the account for 24 hours so that you can play off the existing balance and as stated in my previous email your last deposit will be refunded.

Regards,

Dee

HOGWASH!! The only thing they are accomplishing with this is giving their paying players who may have a chance of withdrawal upon a win even stiffer house odds to beat. With this option, they would be using you as a house player and you would be taking from those you probably call friends.

Rob nice to meet you and welcome to BPU. Please forward your emails to either admin@bingoplayersunion(.com), Sherry@bingoplayersunion(.com) or Sissy@bingoplayersunion(.com). We will need contact information etc, in order to ask questions and try to establish communications on your behalf.
As well, we do need the documentation as back up of any issues we handle on either player or sites behalf.

Once again, welcome to BPU!!

Rob very nice to meet you. We most certainly will try to help you, as Sissy has stated if you send one of us all the info documentation etc etc, we will be happy to e-mail you back and explain exactly how we work.

If you send to anyone of these emails one of us will look into this for you.
sherry@bingoplayersunion.com sissy@bingoplayersunion.com Admin@bingoplayersunion.com

I would suggest that neither you or your wife play at the site until this is straightened out one way or the other.

My 2 cents on the matter is :

I simply do not understand why 30 people in the same place can't play as long as they all have their OWN accounts and fund them via their own method so long as it's their name on their funding method. I mean this is not poker we are talking about where talking across the table or via the next room or on phone can happen. It is supposed to be BINGO by RNG correct ? So what does it really matter ?
They do this ONLY as a means to have YET ANOTHER reason to not pay out when the need arises.

Just my own 2 cents :
I sincerely hope you get paid.

I BEEN THERE/ MISSY

I agree Missy. My wife and I each have our own separate accounts, our own Instadebit accounts and separate computers, and we sent the our picture ID in order for them to pay us on our first cash out.(drivers licence and a bill with our address on it.) Now I am worried about that as well. If they are really this corrupt as to kick people off their site and refuse to pay them just because they can accuse them of whatever happens to suit them--- then who knows what else they will do for money? :(

I too am receiving these very offensive emails. They are holding $571us of mine and have simply refused to pay me out for my honest winnings.

They will not give any explanation and the only proposal they have offered is to "play out this amount within a 24hr period". It sounds wonderful on the surface (to some) but if I add that I dont get to keep any of the winnings is it still enticing or even an option??? My $571 winnings then becomes a donation to WBN and decrease the odds of other people (YOU) winning if I am in there just to play and donate back to WBN.

I have been emailing to try to find a resolution and sometimes they respond but most often they dont. At this stage I have given them a deadline for resolution. If they do not give me my winnings by May 10, 2009 I will let you all know. If they do... I will also let you know and you can make your own decisions from there.

I am a person with great intregity so these false and unprovoked allegations have been very disturbing. Good luck to the others who are going through this as I know I am not alone!!! Good luck to everyone out there playing to have a bit of fun :-)

To add to my above comments.

I too am quite concerned about my identification and safety of that. Its quite a scary feeling actually!!! They have everything on me except my blood type and a urine sample. After all.... who are they??? Some people in Costa Rica who are unreachable except by email??? Thats all know and it may be inaccurate... but all in all ... who are these people with our identities in hand and now our money???

I came to WBN on recommendation from a colleague. Lets hope it wasnt a big mistake and that they will sort out this mess for all involved!!!

Good Luck Yummimummi

I hope this gets sorted out soon too and you get your money. You are correct in your assessment decision not to play for the 24 hours. This situation is actually very frightening because they have our addresses too, and could come knocking on our door, and we have no idea who they are, or what they look like but they have all that data and pictures of us too. Who knows where they are? I did find some data on them on this site and a fax number and that they are in the Turks and Caicos Islands. I also heard they have their servers all over the world and some in Canada too.

Have a good day!

Rob D
