Coconut Island Bingo Review
Coconut Island Bingo is a 50 ball game that’s exclusive to Gala Bingo. If you like your bingo with a tropical twist and bingo calls generated from falling coconuts then this game is perfect for you! As far as we’re aware this was Gala’s – and possibly Playtech’s – first 50 ball game but it’s not the only one now available. Sites like Sun Bingo (Mystic Meg), Sky Bingo (Mystical) and William Hill (Bingo Bowl) have their own variations on this game play. However Coconut Island is the original and seems to have a lot more features.
How Do I Play Coconut Island Bingo
To play Coconut Island Bingo you need to head to Gala and login. The room is usually open from 10am onwards. The Coconut Island room is a standard Virtue Fusion affair with details of the game at the top of the page and tickets below. A tropical theme dominates the background. The premise of the game is the same as a 90 ball one, except for a 50 ball version you have tickets with 10 numbers and prizes only for one line and a full house.
Ticket prices are typically 5p and 10p with the maximum tickets you can purchase per game being 60. Note that some games may be Multi Stake! At eyes down the numbers are called as in any other bingo game. The cool thing about Coconut Island is that the numbers appear via falling coconuts. It’s simple but fun! When Coconut Island first launched it did offer a Treasure Chest (15 Calls) and Oyster Jackpot (18 Calls). These seem to have been dropped now in favour of Gala’s Bingo Jackpots.
Gala Bingo Jackpots
Gala has a number of ‘must drop’ bingo jackpots that run hourly, daily, weekly and monthly. In addition there’s a Bingo Boss Jackpot which at time of writing was well over £60,000. We’re not quite sure how these jackpots are won – we assume by random and on any game rather than within fixed numbers of calls. It should also be noted that the jackpots are not community ones so they’re not shared by fellow roomies when they fall.
50 Ball games are fast and furious so blink and you’ll find the coconuts have all fallen. However this particular game is good fun and not too expensive to play. It isn’t the most popular game on Gala either – typically 30 players – which means that whilst the prizes for 1L and FH are small there’s a better chance of winning.
