Costa Bingo threw online gaming into a spin when it launched it’s free play for real cash site back in June 2009. Since then the site has been a front runner in terms of free bingo, promotions and mobile gaming. In many respects it’s tried to keep up with Foxy and at one even had Mel B from the Spice Girls adorning it’s website. Those days are now long gone, but it’s bright sunny outlook and constant stream of prize games and penny bingo has kept us interested – perhaps it will do the same for you?
In 2019, Costa Bingo and it’s sister brands were taken over by 888 (Wink, 888 Ladies). At that time Costa was the site in it’s group to offer no deposit bonus. However all good things come to an end and this offer has now ended. Instead you can play in The Big Academy with no deposit needed for a couple of days after registration. First time depositors also offered a welcome bonus of 120 bingo tickets. Terms apply – see Costa Bingo for full details.
There are actually six free rooms at Costa and these include Freasy Peasy which is open to non-depositors. Don’t get too excited as you won’t be able to withdraw your winnings! Winnings from the free games are paid as bonuses and they come with wagering and withdrawal terms. In other words you can play to your heart’s content for nowt, but if you want to take your money out then you need to deposit and play first. The other freebie rooms are for funded players only and act as rewards for depositing etc.
Joining the free rooms are 75 ball and 90 ball bingo. Most games will cost 5p and 10p a ticket but you can find penny games and indeed some that are a tad more expensive. Costa also have their Bingo Vegas room which is a 52 ball card based game. Surprisingly this room isn’t open all the time so it’s not going to develop in popularity. All games are accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop.
If you like playing for big money then Costa do have jackpot games every evening plus weekly and monthly promotions. The jackpots include the Daily Night Fever where you can win a £1000 jackpot each day, Thursday Big Shop which offers a £500 shopping voucher prize and Costa Crazy where you can win up to £10K every Friday for free, provided you’re a qualifying depositor.
Prize games are one of the things we like about Costa, although it’s fair to say that the value of prizes has declined in recent years. It wasn’t so long ago that they offered cars or big cash prizes but now the prizes on offer tend to be worth just a few hundred. The prize game tickets also used to be expensive but you could get freebies by depositing/wagering. That process has also changed but tickets now tend to be around 10p.
Shine Bright Like A Diamond
There’s plenty to like at Costa Bingo and their loyalty club is another plus point. The Diamond Club offers players up to five VIP levels depending on wagering levels. The rewards, free spins, bonuses, cash, prizes etc are dependent on the level you’re at. For example at Bronze you can only use your Diamonds to collect free spins. Terms apply.
The problem with Costa Bingo is that it’s almost perfect. There’s free bingo, great jackpots, big prizes, lots of promotions – what more can a player want? This is essentially Foxy Bingo but without the Fox – and that’s actually a big plus point for the site. Take a look and grab that no deposit bonus whilst you can.
