Catching Rays At Costa Bingo

It wasn’t so long ago that our news pages were regularly updated with the latest prize promotions from Costa Bingo. If you’re a frequent visitor to Penny Bingo then you may have noticed that this is no longer the case. Costa alongside it’s sister brands of Fancy, City and Sing seem to have fizzled into the background. So what exactly is going on? We decided to grab some sunscreen and drop in to see what’s on offer at Costa Bingo – and shed some light on the lack of new offers.
No No Deposit Bonus
Costa Bingo and a host of other sites were recently sold by Ignite (part of the Jackpotjoy Group). They were sold to 888 who own the Dragonfish platform as well as brands such as Wink, 888 Ladies and Posh. This sale is one of the main reasons why the prize promos at Costa have ended. This is a big shame as it was something we particularly liked about this group. However, we suspect that the new owners don’t see them as important element for a bingo brand. Wink and 888 Ladies only occasionally run big promos so we anticipate that’s the future for Costa.
One massive change is that Costa Bingo now no longer offer new players a no deposit bonus. They were the last of their group to offer a £5 no deposit bonus. In addition they were pretty much the last Dragonfish powered site offering such a bonus. Instead they have now fallen in line with many others and are offering free bingo for a couple of days via The Bingo Academy. Depositors are now welcomed with a 200% first bonus plus free spins on Irish Luck. Note that the bonus has wagering terms (x4 deposit + bonus) but wins from the spins do not.
Currently all other regular promotions are active at Costa Bingo. With this offer, every time you top up £5 or more you will get 6 days of access to catch a daily sunshine prize! Prizes include real cash, spins, bingo tickets and bonuses. Bonuses won in this promo are subject to wagering requirement of 4x (deposit + bonus). Odds of winning vary between players depending on gaming and deposit activity.
The Friday Big Five also remains part of the mix. This is open to funded players only and gives them the chance to play five big games with five big prize pools. You can claim your free cards if you’ve topped up in the last 6 days! These £1000 jackpot games start at 7pm and run every hour to 11pm. So whilst the monthly tangible prizes have gone, there’s still plenty to enjoy at Costa Bingo. Hopefully the new owners will give it a much needed boost and propel it up to the same status that they hold for Wink. It’d be a shame to see this popular brand end up in the shadows alongside Tasty and Redbus.
