A must read review of Costa Bingo
Costa Bingo offers super hot bingo games 24 hours a day 7 days a week (including free games that run alongside the paid games!). So frequent are these games that a new one starts every three minutes and aside from being a pretty busy website with something going on all the time Costa Bingo has plenty more on offer to get excited about. Here are our thoughts on what it is that makes this Bingo website one to check out.
The Costa Bingo Website: A Quick Overview
Costa Bingo are one of the biggest bingo websites around; launched in 2009 it seems that this bingo brand hasn’t stopped growing and today it boasts a rather impressive 6000 unique players each and every day. With so many players, and with so many games going on it’s unsurprising that Costa have given away over £1 million in April and May of this year alone!
When you get to the Costa Bingo website itself you’ll likely be spoiled for choice as to what to play; with 50 rooms and a choice of over 100 instant games (which include top titles such as Cleopatra Slots and Fluffy Favourites). Their range of Bingo includes free bingo, jackpot games, progressive jackpots and chat games.
When we took a look over the Costa website we noticed that they proclaim that their motto is “Better Value, Bigger Jackpots”, so the question is whether they really offer the cheapest rooms with more free bingo and bigger jackpots than anywhere else and you can read on to find out!
Let’s start our look at Costa’s promotions with the Welcome bonus! This really is something to get pretty excited about as you’ll receive £5 for free, even without placing a deposit. This is unique within the Bingo world and makes for a reason alone to check the website out. Additionally however, when you do make a deposit you’ll be awarded with a huge 200% for free! This then means that a deposit of £20 would see your receiving an extra £40 in extra bingo credits, giving you a total of £60 to get started.
In terms of wagers you’ll need to know that the requirements are four times whatever you deposit. This is a relatively standard amount for bingo websites and if you do opt to cash out your winnings prior to meeting the wagering requirements then you’ll see any bonus cash forfeited. Additionally, the minimum deposit is £5, however the minimum amount you’ll need to cash out is £30.
A nice little touch if you’re a frequent player is that you’ll receive 5 points for every £1 you spend; this reward scheme then sees you given £1 for every 1000 points. Whilst this isn’t one of the most lucrative such rewards we’ve seen it does provide an additional bonus to playing at Costa Bingo.
Not only does Costa offer a great first deposit bonus, it additionally offers a re-deposit bonus; this will see you given a tidy 50% extra on whatever you deposit after your initial payment. As well as this there is also a free game for those who have placed a deposit that day. These games run every 30 minutes and have a £15 prize pool. To make the most out of this promotion you’ll want to play as many of these games as you can.
The Costa Angel promotion is completely unique and will really put your kindness to the test! Here you’ll be playing a 2p 75 ball game with a £150 jackpot. If you hit the jackpot then you’ll be offered an additional £50 bonus cash. However you’ll then be asked if you want to take the win, or keep it to yourself. We’re not sure about what choices previous winners have made of this prize, but we’re hedging our bets that the players who give away their prize are few and far between!
Carnival week sees massive giveaways of PS4s, games and PS4 Move Cameras. You can also win free cards by playing the slots throughout the week.
Costa’s VIP Scheme: The Diamond Club
Costa’s VIP scheme is known as the ‘Diamond Club’; this sees you working through 5 levels which run as follows: Blue (deposited up to £50); Bronze (deposited up to £500); Silver (deposited up to £1000); Gold (deposited up to £5000) and Platinum (deposited £5000+). The levels that you’re at will provide various benefits, from exclusive games to Birthday bonuses.
Brand New Instant Tourneys
Having recently seen a complete makeover Costa’s instant Tourneys promise much in the way of excitement and cash prizes.
There are two tourneys that can be played each day, with each of these having a £150 cash jackpot for the top ten spinners! You’re able to play these games at any time and best of all they’re completely free! Right now the tourneys on offer are Sweety Land (which plays from 8am to 5.30pm) and Fish and Chips (which plays from 6m until midnight). After your free round you can go on to buy tickets to continue playing, which are priced at 50p each, so that you can make your way into the top ten spinners.
Heading on over to Mel’s Corner
If you thought the bonuses stopped there then you’re wrong. Costa Bingo is currently featuring a special area on the site with promotions that are kept fresh. This area, known as Mel’s Corner (due to the former Spice Girl, Mel B, currently promoting the site) right now features Mel’s Lucky Dip and Mel’s Bonanza.
Mel’s Lucky Dip
Mel’s Lucky Dip will see you playing within a room that features plenty of surprise games, mystery prizes and plenty more besides. Card prices range from free to 5p and prizes are announced an hour before play. These rooms are open hourly from 9:15am to 5:15pm.
Mel’s Bonanza sees you in with a chance of winning over £8,000 every week! Games run every hour, with the 5p Game having a guaranteed jackpot of £50 (this 75 ball game runs every two hours from 9am to 11pm) and the 10p game having a £100 guaranteed jackpot (this 90 ball game runs every two hours from 10am to 12am).
Going beyond the Bingo
Whilst Bingo may serve as the main game that you’ll play over at Costa they also offer a pretty good range of additional games if you fancy a change or are waiting for a big game to start. These fall under two categories with these being casino and slot games.
A particular favourite of ours are the games that boast a progressive jackpot. These can see you playing for some seriously significant amounts of money.
Costa Bingo take their commitment to customer services seriously through providing a range of ways to contact them and find out further information. Throughout their dedicated Help section they provide an FAQ page, an email address, phone number as well as Live chat feature. They also have a pretty helpful ‘Getting Started’ guide for those who are new to the website.
One of the things about the Costa Bingo website that you’ll first notice is that it’s bright, bold and incredibly welcoming. Going beyond this however, there are plenty of things that mean that this website has a real feeling of community and interactivity. You’ll see a winners wall, get to meet your chat hosts and even be able to keep up with what Sunny (Costa Bingo’s mascot) is up to over on their blog.
We were happy to hear that Costa Bingo is mobile! Not only that but their app works on all smartphones and tablets and you can even receive exclusive promotions on the slot games when playing through the app, rather than on your desktop computer. A perfect example of the range of mobilicious bonuses is the £500 in free prizes that are given away each and every week randomly to those playing on mobile and tablet.
Costa Bingo have gotten to grips with social media and are now on Facebook, Twitter, Google + and even Youtube. It’s well worth checking them out and giving them a like or follow as you’ll be kept up to date with all of the latest happenings, as well as being informed of when and where the big money games are on. This is particularly useful for the free cards for the main Saturday game as it can be all too easy to forget during the week.
Our Finishing Thoughts
Costa Bingo is packed full of features and provides a lovely atmosphere in which to play, whether that be on the chat games or over in one of the bingo rooms, and with no shortage of large prizes and seemingly never ending bonuses you could easily find that this makes for a firm favourite of all bingo websites.
All in all then it’s safe to say that their slogan of ‘Jackpots so big, they’re scary!’ holds completely true and if you’re hoping for a big win on the bingo then there is no friendlier a place to check out!
