Costa Bingo Review
About Costa Bingo
Costa Bingo is a long established and well known bingo brand, helped in the past by TV advertising featuring X-Factor judge and ex-Spice Girl MelB taking giant strides around London, highlighting the 'giant jackpots' on offer at the site.
In June 2016 Costa Bingo adopted the new style Dragonfish software and was back on TV. No MelB this time - instead mascot Sunny was given a voice. That voice is Johnny Vegas - which fits nicely with the new game that was introduced to the site at the same time - Vegas Bingo.
In December 2016 the brand became the first of Dragonfish based bingo sites to offer a choice of lobby to make it more user friendly for those using tablets or other mobile devices. Instead of being a carbon copy of the main site the alternative lobby and game pages appear to be more HTML5 led and everything is more simple somehow and less cluttered. Once you have made a decision as to which you prefer you can tick a box to make this your permanant platform.
In September 2017 the next step took place and the site was updated to become even more linear and to more closely resemble the mobile experience. Chat was improved, you can access all the promo rooms, move around the site faster and enjoy more instant games than ever. The site even got a new strapline, 'Your Funshine Destination'.
The welcome offer is good, backed up by great games and an overall excellent package. The withdrawal time could be better, but a small gripe on an otherwise excellent bingo site.
The promotions are constantly being updated and tend to be valid around events taking place in the real world or on TV and the prizes are always well thought out.

Costa Bingo on mobile and tablet
Access Costa Bingo via any mobile device on the relevant mobile browser. The games are fully optimised for mobile play.
The layout of the mobile version of the site is similar to the desktop versions style, it’s simple and easy to understand. The navigation bar is located at the bottom of the screen and splits up the content into five sections - ‘Games’, ‘Bingo’ , ‘Promos’, ‘VIP’ and ‘More’.
Slot games and instant win games are all under the ‘Games’ section, with a huge selection to choose from, such as Lucky Irish, Gonzo’s Quest and Imperial Destiny.
The bingo games are all under the ‘Bingo’ section, with a selection of different types available, such as 90 ball, 75 ball, Daily Jackpot and free bingo. The layout of the lobby is perfectly matched with the desktop version of the site and makes Costa Bingo on mobile very straightforward, simplistic and easy to use.
Costa Bingo has a selection of promotions available to their customers and all of them are in the ‘Promos’ section.
Everything else on this mobile bingo site is under the ‘More’ section. Such as, how to play, licensing information and settings.
If you wish to make a deposit, withdraw or set a deposit limit, simply tap on the separate ‘Banking’ section at the top of the screen.
Once in a bingo room there are three more options at the bottom of the page to enhance your game time while playing, there is 'Games' and 'Chat' . These give you the option to take part in the chat room antics, or to play from a massive selection of slots and instant games. Some will open to play within the room and others will take you away from the room, but there is no way of telling which will do what.
If you have chat or a game open you will see the numbers being called and how many numbers you have left to bingo in a panel at the top of the page so you know to click back to the game when you are getting close.
Unlike the desktop version you are unable to access the site fully, such as seeing the games and promotions, until you sign-up. The sign-up process is fairly slick, straight forward and is simple on mobile.
