Review by Sarah Taylor, 17th Oct 2009
In our opinion Costa Bingo has some of the best graphics we have come across so far. We like their bright and sunny theme, if its cold and rainy outside it takes you to a warmer place. The game has been well received having become one of the more popular sites, which is reflected in a nice number lot of players in their rooms.
The bingo game itself is really nice looking and very intuitive. 90 ball bingo is called out using full bingo lingo, which we like. Balls called out are marked off on a card in the left hand side of the screen, while your tickets are auto-daubed in the centre. This improves gameplay and makes it easy to see how far off winning you are.
What we really liked about Costa Bingo is the sign-up process and that you can try before you buy. It is simple to sign-up for an account, no deposit or even card details are initially required and you get access to the free games to test them out first. You will need to deposit to unlock all of the games, win real money and enable chat.
When you deposit you get 200% sign up bonus and £20 free money. You will then be able to play in many 75 and 90 ball halls with varying jackpots. The scheduled games have the biggest jackpots so maybe its worth setting a reminder so you dont miss them.
Overall the graphics on this site are excellent, gameplay is good, there are always a good community of active players, we especially liked the variety of mini-games. The mini-games are good quality too, roulette is offered but the best mini-game here has to be the slots, for which there are a wide variety. Our favourite is the pirate themed slot machine.. shiver me timbers!
The company uses the software that powers 888, which assures us that the game is very reliable, fair and secure.
Costa Bingo comes highly recommended!
