Costa Bingo Review Continued...
Acquired by Intertain Group in the middle of 2014, Costa Bingo is a fun, relaxed site that uses the Dragonfish software to offer a great bingo experience to visitors. When you sign up, Sunny, the site’s mascot, welcomes you with a bonus and the chance to play free bingo.
The tagline “Jackpots so big, it’s scary” has remained in place even though former Spice Girl Mel B is no longer the public face of Costa Bingo, inviting players to take part in the many games which offer huge prizes.
The usual 75-ball and 90-ball games are on offer at Costa Bingo, with the games sorted by type. There are 5p and 10p games, fun jackpots, free bingo for new players and bingo rooms specifically for VIPs. You can also take part in slots and progressive jackpot games as well as scratchcards while you wait for your bingo game to start, with common offerings such as Fluffy Favourites, Cleopatra and South Park all up for grabs in addition to scores of other titles.
There certainly isn’t a lack of fun and sun in Costa Bingo’s layout, with pastel colours layered over a bright yellow background. It’s bright and cheerful without being too gaudy or overwrought.
The bingo lobby opens quickly, runs smoothly and is easy to navigate. You’re immediately presented with tabs for all of the different styles of games on offer, and you pick one and get going. That’s all there is to it!
The mobile version of the site is great, though you may want to launch it in Google Chrome as opposed to your mobile’s native browser if you’re on an Android device, and classic bingo games are available for your enjoyment. There’s even a mobile-only bingo room, called Roam Free, which offers a 90-ball game that could see you win big slices of cash on the go.
Costa Bingo has a lively community section, complete with a fun blog run by Sunny, a dedicated winners’ section and a guide to the bingo terminology that may confuse new players.
All players start out at the Blue level of the VIP scheme, known as the Diamond Club, with the opportunity to move up the ranks as they make more deposits. All players get a birthday bonus, with Platinum level roomies picking up a whopping 300 percent bonus just for making another trip around the sun.
You’ll earn loyalty points, known as Costa Points, as you play more bingo games, win chat game prizes or refer friends to the site. The Costa Points can be redeemed for cash that can be used to buy more cards. You’ll get £1 for every 1,000 points you redeem.
Costa Bingo Bonuses and Promotions
Signing up to Costa Bingo and depositing £10 will see you start off with a 500 percent bonus to spend on bingo games. You’ll also get a 150 percent bonus on your second deposit of up to £100 and a 125 percent bonus of up to £100 on your third deposit. After that, you can reap the benefits of a 50 percent deposit bonus so that you never have to miss out on a favourite room or a great promotion. Bonuses and their deposits must be played through four times before you can withdraw any winnings.
If you’re a bit shy about making a deposit, you can get £5 in free bingo just for entering your valid debit or credit card details. It’s a great way to get a feel for the site before plunking down some cash on the games found in the lobby.
Costa Bingo also offers fun one-off promotions throughout the year, giving you the chance to take part in special games or competitions in which you could win cash prizes or other items.
With a great selection of games, a welcoming community, reasonable wagering requirements and numerous tempting offers, Costa Bingo is the place to be if you’re serious about your bingo community, jackpots and fun prizes. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re totally new to the game or have been wearing out your dabbers for years.
