When your favourite bingo site announces downtime, it can be frustrating, but when it’s done for a good reason such as to allow for new games to be added or for the operator to make improvements to the lobby or chat, suddenly it becomes a more exciting and intriguing prospect.
So, when Mecca Bingo posted on its Facebook page, giving its members the heads-up that its website would be offline for maintenance between 3.30 AM and 7 AM on Tuesday, 23rd March, we immediately took note.
The post states the overall reason for the site going offline as “so we can carry out some work”, but it does onto say that there are several new features on the way too.
Firstly, there’s a brand-new Keno mini-game called Bee-i-n-g-o, and more importantly, in April, the operator will be unveiling a new 75-ball bingo room called Spirit Twister Bingo which will offer a full house multiplier feature that enables players to win up to five times the full house amount!
Currently, Mecca Bingo has four 75-ball rooms, Jive Talking, Lucky 7 Bingo, Deal or No Deal 75, and Mis-Shapes; so, the addition of the Spirit Twister room will come as a bonus for many members of the site.
So far, the operator is keeping under wraps any further details of the new room top-secret such as ticket prices, rules and prize amounts. Spirit Twister Bingo may come with its own jackpots like Britain’s Got Talent Bingo and Snakes and Ladders rooms do. Alternatively, it may become one of the bingo rooms that qualify for Mecca’s Premier Bingo Jackpots, the largest of which is the Premiere Diamond Progressive.
While we must wait with bated breath to find out, there’s always the new Bee-i-n-g-o mini-game to enjoy, as well as other exciting online bingo variants!
