Coconut Island Bingo Review
When you play in the Coconut Island room at Gala Bingo, you really feel as though you’re on holiday somewhere exotic and warm.
With single or multiple tickets at your disposal, you can play for two different prizes in every game. There are also five Must-Drop Jackpots (including two progressives) to play for that are exclusive to members of Gala Bingo.
As only 50 balls are used in this online bingo variant, the games tend to last no more than 3 minutes. If you’re familiar with speed bingo games, you’ll know how much fun the fast-paced gameplay can be, but if you’re worried about keeping up, don’t worry as the software automatically dabs your cards so that you don’t fall behind.
How to play
The ticket sales panel appears as soon as you enter the Coconut Island room, and it allows you to purchase between 1 and 60 tickets for each game.
Once the game begins, a coconut appears at the top-left of the screen which shows a number from 1 to 50, and if it matches a number on your ticket, your ticket is dabbed accordingly.
There are two ways to win in every game.
The one-line prize is awarded to the first room to create a horizontal line across their ticket while the full house prize goes to the first player to mark off all the numbers on a single ticket.
Although Coconut Island games don’t offer dedicated jackpots, the room is one of several at Gala Bingo that are eligible for Gala’s Must-Drop Jackpots.
There are five jackpots in total, two of which are progressive which means that they keep growing each time that a ticket for a qualifying game is sold until they’re won. They can be awarded to any player at any time.
Further details of the Must-Drop jackpots follow below:
- Hourly – The Hourly Jackpot is fixed at £20
- Daily – The Daily Jackpot is fixed at £100
- Weekly – The Weekly Jackpot is fixed at £250
- Monthly – The Monthly Jackpot is a progressive jackpot that is funded by 0.5% of all ticket sales. It seeds at £25,000
- Bingo Boss – The Bingo Boss Jackpot is a progressive jackpot that is funded by 0.5% of all ticket sales. It seeds at a massive £50,000
Graphics and Sounds
The background includes a beautiful, clear, and calm blue sea, and in the distance, there’s a tiny island.
In the foreground, there’s a sandy shore complete with a small fishing boat and some palm trees on the left-hand side.
Over on the right-hand side of the screen, there’s the chat window which you can use to talk to other players, as well as a panel where you can choose to play a selection of slots, scratch cards, and jackpot games.
Every couple of seconds, you see a coconut fall from one of the palm trees, and when it hits the sand, it splits open to reveal a number. As further coconuts fall, the line of numbered bingo balls bounces further down the beach.
The chat room is on the right-hand side with the side games panel underneath it.
Coconut Island Bingo is a wonderfully tropical type of bingo game that offers generous prizes, including five mouth-watering Must-Drop jackpots.
The animations of coconuts plummeting onto the sand are great, and the variety of games (such as 1TG&2TG, free tickets, and BOGOF) mean that you always get more bang for your buck.
If you need a holiday, why not take the opportunity to book a getaway to Gala Bingo where the sun is always shining in the Coconut Bingo room?
