Mecca Bingo Review
Mecca Bingo are one of the biggest brands in the bingo world. In 2015 they successfully merged their online and mobile gaming activity with that of their offline clubs. They are the brand that brought us a dancing twerking cactus, the Meccarena as well as plenty of other exciting promotions. It's not always been plain sailing for Mecca Bingo online as in the early days they lagged well behind their Gala rivals. Nowadays though they're really giving them a run for their money.
Introducing Mecca Bingo
In 2015 the Mecca Bingo website had a big makeover to make it more mobile/tablet friendly. It also sadly saw the departure of Dr Paula Legg and her assortment of strange advertising fellows including that cactus. This has all resulted in one of the best sites around! It offers a good range of games, a good mix of promotions, an active community and plenty more besides. More recently (2021) the site has had another makeover plus a new logo. This redesign has freshened up the brand and highlights many of the options players can enjoy when visiting Mecca Bingo online. The site is well set up for mobile users. Apps are available for Android and iPhone users too. The app and mobile versions give you access to the bingo rooms plus the many slots that are available to enjoy.
Mecca Bingo Welcome Bonus
New players are welcomed with the chance to spin the Welcome Winners Wheel as part of a new welcome offer launched in May 2021. New players need to register, login, deposit and wager £10 to earn a spin of the wheel. Prizes on the wheel vary but include cash prizes, free spins on selected slots, games bonuses and bingo bonuses. Note that wagering terms will apply to selected prizes. There are no wagering terms on cash and wins from free spins. The bingo bonus wagering is x5 and the games bonus term is x20. According to Mecca Bingo you can win up to £120 by spinning The Welcome Winners Wheel. Everyone who spins the wheel is guaranteed a prize. Note if you don't want the bonus then customer services will be happy to remove it.
Mecca Bingo Rooms
Like it's main rivals at Gala, Mecca host a number of exclusive and network rooms. These include the usual 75 and 90 ball games which you can find in rooms like Main Event, Supersonic, Gold Rush, Mis-Shapes and Jive Talking. Themed rooms are also in abundance and include The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent rooms. Joining them are Emoji Bingo and Burst Bingo. One of our favourite exclusives, Blockbuster Bingo, sadly didn't last long at the site. Ticket prices range from pennies to pounds and there's plenty of options here for players. More recent additions to the bingo roster are Spirit Twister, Better Odds Bingo, Rainbow Riches and Age Of The Gods. Cashline is the only 80 Ball room that's available.
Popular Slots & Jackpots
Slots do play a part at Mecca Bingo and there are regular promotions for those players who enjoy a spin or two. Amongst the games featured you'll find Merlin's Millions, Super Monopoly Money, Wheel Of Fortune, OMG Kittens, Rainbow Riches, Cleopatra and Golden Goddess. Joining these popular games are mutliple versions of Slingo and Megaways titles plus a host of Daily Drop Jackpots, Jackpot King and Mega Jackpots. Live casino games aren't well signposted on the site but you can find game shows such as Monopoly Live and Deal Or No Deal Live. Gonzo's Treasure Hunt is the latest addition to the live game shows section.
Mecca Bingo Promotions
Promotions are where Mecca Bingo really do well and have improved considerably over their rivals. Over recent months they've offered holidays, cash and even cars in a variety of promos such as Everyone's A Winner and Winner Spinners. They regularly host prize games and there's usually always something exclusive alongside the many Virtue Fusion jackpots and offers that run every month. As well as exclusives on the website you'll also find them on the busy and regularly updated Mecca Bingo Facebook page. A new addition to the site is Mecca Raffles which gives players the chance to win tangible prizes in pay to enter prize draws.
Rank Cares & Responsible Play
The above doesn't even cover the many other elements of what you can find at Mecca Bingo. If you're a club player then there's information about the latest promotions for you. There's also regularly updates about Mecca's charity work under Rank Cares. At time of writing they're supporting Carers Trust and raising funds in a number of ways including hosting special games at the start of every month. More importantly for players there's an extensive section on responsible play. This special Keep It Fun section provides information on regulating your spending, staying in control and self exlcusion options.
If you're new to online bingo then we'd suggest making Mecca Bingo one of your first points of call. They have a good selection of rooms, exclusives and player promotions. The new welcome offer is perhaps the only question mark as 'spin the wheel' promos always highlight the top prize rather than the one most players will get. We like the addition of Mecca Raffles though and feel that the brand is a lot more progressive than many of it's counterparts This review probably doesn't come close to giving Mecca Bingo the kudos it deserves, especially given that we remember it when it was an ugly site with little going for it. An ugly duckling has truly become a glorious beautiful swan.
