Joining the stable of Costa, Rio, Fancy, Sing and City are Wish Bingo. The site originally launched with a ‘genie’ style theme. However with UKGC intervention the site has had a makeover. The theme is now all dreams and wishes and there’s no sign of the previous cartoon look. Whilst Wish uses familiar software it’s not part of the bigger Dragonfish Network. Instead it shares the same games, rooms and promotions that Costa and Sing do. In that respect it’s a bit of a disappointment as Ignite who own the brand have always been good in terms of unique new sites and innovation.
Wish Bingo Welcome Offer
As of September 2021 new players to Wish Bingo are welcomed with a deposit bonus. Register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 to receive a 300% bonus (up to £200). In addition new players also collect 30 free spins on a selected slot. Wins from these spins attract no wagering terms as they're paid in cash. However the bingo bonus has wagering terms of x4 the deposit + bonus. These changes put Wish Bingo on par with Costa Bingo and pretty much ends it's chapter on no wagering terms on bingo bonuses.
No Deposit Free Bingo
A no deposit bingo room is available for new players. The Bingo Academy is open for 48 hours after registration at Wish Bingo. Free games play in this room every 20 minutes and give you the chance to win small prizes. These are £1, £2 or £5 for the 75 ball full house. All prizes are paid in bonuses so wagering terms will apply.
Wish Bingo Rooms
As well as free bingo, Wish Bingo offers a 75 ball, 75 ball 5 Line, 90 ball and 52 ball bingo. The latter is a card based version of bingo that uses playing cards instead of bingo numbers. A bit like Cinco that you can find at Tombola. There's also the aforementioned Bingo Academy as well as jackpot rooms. Penny Bingo fans should check out the promotions as this network of sites host 1p games every day from 2pm to midnight.
Wish Bingo SlotsWish Bingo has the usual selection of Dragonfish slots which can be found via the lobby. Featured titles include Starburst, Pigasus, Shopping Spree, Irish Luck, Pay Of The Dead and Lost Island. You can find slots via Top Games, Daily Drop Jackpots, Jackpots, Megaways and Deal Or No Deal. Slingo games such as Reel King, Fluffy Favourites and Monopoly can also be found but you won't find table games or live casino. Unlike a lot of bingo brands Wish Bingo doesn't tend to run any slot promotions which may appeal to bingo players.
Wish Bingo Promotions
When Wish Bingo launched it offered players plenty of promotions including prize games and jackpots. However as time has ticked on and the group of sites sold to 888 it's fair to say that Wish Bingo has been left relatively unattended. There are still regular offers such as cashback and jackpots but these are limited. That said you can play for 7 x £1000 games that take place every Friday (5pm to 11pm) provided you're a qualifying depositor. There are also network free games including a £250 one every Sunday and one for £1000 every Monday.
No app is required to play Wish Bingo. You can login and play as normal with mobile, tablet and desktop. This gives you access to the bingo rooms and slots. Deposits can be made safely and securely via a number of payment options including Paypal and debit cards. Like all UK bingo brands, responsible gambling is very important and therefore Wish Bingo has a number of tools you can use. These include setting deposit limits, taking time outs or cooling off periods, or choosing to self exclude from all brands powered by Dragonfish.
Penny’s Thoughts On Wish Bingo
Is it worth taking a look at Wish if it’s a clone of Costa? Well yes as there’s still a bit of no deposit free bingo on the menu. Players sometimes get bored of the same old and a change of scenery sometimes changes their luck. The free bingo makes it worth dropping in for. However it’s a little lost in the shadows of Costa, City Bingo and Sing. We’d have liked to have seen it become a more prominant brand by now but suspect that this will never be the case. Take a look but you might wish you’d gone for an alternative like Wink or Costa.
