Costa Bingo Review

Costa Bingo is the cheerful, sunny, beach holiday themed site designed by online software giants Dragonfish. It’s all licenced and registered via Gibraltar, so it is fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and regarded as safe to play in the United Kingdom. But how does it fare after its conversion from desktop to mobile format? Well pretty well actually. Gone is the panoramic seashore vista, but not much else is absent. The bingo offering is much the same, with 90 and 75 ball options on offer. The prizes, jackpots, promotions and loyalty incentives are much the same as those on the full screen version. Games wise too, there are plenty of slots, scratch card and casino style choices to play when you’ve had enough of your favourite bingo format. They all operate very well, with everything customised to fit the compact screen of your handset. There is therefore no need for any scrolling or zooming when playing the games. It’s a different story if you are navigating between games however. The sheer amount of choice means choosing from some long menus, so your thumb may well require some on screen dexterity. The same applies to the registration process too. If you are already a member of the main site, you can just log in using your current details. If you are a Costa virgin, it’s probably easier to register using a larger keyboard and screen first, then log on with your mobile later. Remember to consider whether to opt out of receiving text massages too. Getting the occasional e-mail is one thing; receiving annoying texts just when your partner is complaining about how you are always pre-occupied with your phone is another!

But here at Pay by Text Bingo, we don’t just check out the fun side, we look into all the nuts and bolts too, like banking arrangements and those interminable Terms & Conditions pages. Payment wise, you can use Visa and MasterCard credit cards; Delta and Maestro debit cards and any of several e-payment methods. Costa Bingo also provide a 24 hour Freephone number to help you. Sadly, at the time of review, there was no facility to pay by text. The minimum deposit amount is £5.

In conclusion, this review of Costa Bingo finds a bright and fun filled site with plenty of things to do. You could certainly play on this site on the beach, and the only worry you would have is how to keep the sand out of your handset.
