Mecca Bingo has been something of a “household name” for bingo players in the UK since the 1960s.
While this is mostly thanks to their wide network of brick-and-mortar venues, for about a decade now, the company has also been bringing the same excitement with its online platform.
Mecca Bingo Community
Despite being such a big business, Mecca Bingo does go to some lengths to ensure that all of its patrons are treated with a personal touch. This includes a “Community” page in which customers can read customer reviews, stories about big wins and even vote for their favourite bingo room “CM”, or chat moderator.
This sense of an online community is something which seems to be typical for bingo-based gambling websites and is often lacking at websites more tailored to the slot machine market.
Given the British-centric nature of the Mecca Bingo service, the website and support systems are only available in the English language. What’s more, given that the service evidently handles such as large player base, customers will be able to access a huge archive of frequently asked questions in the “Help & Support” pages. Should this information bear no adequate answers, patrons will be given the option to use a live chat portal that is open from 09:00 to 23:59. However, you can expect to be placed on stand-by during busy periods of the day.
The Bingo Games
Of course, the main focus of this gambling website is on the bingo. As such, there are many classic and themed online bingo rooms with a variety of gameplay features such as 90 ball, 80 ball and 75 ball drums. What’s more, these live bingo rooms are always opening to allow new players to join in on the action, so you shouldn’t have to wait too long until you can get started.
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.
As for other casino games, there is actually quite poor showing on the table game front with only a couple of blackjack and roulette games mixed up among the slot machines.
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.
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.
Please see the full T&Cs for the welcome bonus.
Mecca Bingo recently redesigned their online and app-based platforms. The new pastel pink and purple colour schemes are very easy on the eye and make for an appealing first impression.
However, if you prefer something a little more masculine, there’s also the option to customize the colour scheme in your account settings.
A lot of thought went into the new design, with plenty of customer feedback taken into account.
One of the interface updates allows you to favourite bingo rooms so you can easily gain access with a single click so the site is very easy to navigate.
Mobile Bingo on Mecca
There are a few different mobile apps to choose from:
- Mecca Bingo (iOS and Android)
- Mecca Slots (iOS only)
- My Mecca App (iOS only)
Even if you aren’t interested in anything other than bingo, it’s worth installing the My Mecca App too.
You’ll get special access to everything available on the website, as well as exclusive offers and updates on any events happening at the nearest brick-and-mortar club.
However, if you prefer hedging your bets, you’ll enjoy the Mecca Bingo app, which gives users exclusive access to the Best Odds Bingo games.
These rooms have a maximum allowance of 25 players with 10 cards each.
There are many popular payment methods available to use when playing the slot machines at Mecca Bingo, as you might expect from a service of this calibre. Those options include also e-wallets such as PayPal, Neteller and Skrill and more.
If you are lucky enough to have some winnings to withdraw, then you can do so using any of the above methods – as long as you have registered the same service to make a deposit. The minimum deposit limit is a very reasonable £5 for all methods while the minimum withdrawal limit is £10. If you are really lucky and have more than £15,000 or more for withdrawal, then you will have to contact customer services to arrange this.
Mecca Bingo Customer Reviews
Although WhichBingo is rather fond of Mecca Bingo (having granted several awards over the past few years), the user reviews are a little mixed.
Based on 150 comments, Mecca Bingo has an average score of 3.63/5 points.
The overwhelming majority are highly positive!
Many are saying that Mecca Bingo is the best bingo platform they’ve come across.
Even looking at some of the more negative reviews, players usually agree Mecca Bingo is their favorite bingo site, but they’re giving lower scores because they “don’t always win”.
Mecca Bingo Final Takeaway
Having spent some time on Mecca Bingo’s site and testing their app, I feel like this is the best online bingo site I have ever played on.
