Mandalay Media/Iginite Bingo had a very busy 2014! They started by launching Rio Bingo and were in the process of selling their business. With the latter news you may have expected that the present incumbents would rest on their laurels, but that wasn't the case as another new brand joined the Sing, Costa, City and Fancy group. Grab your lanterns and make a wish for Wish Bingo!

Wagering Terms: No wagering on bingo tickets
Wish Bingo has an Aladdin and the Lamp type feel to it as there's an Arabian town scene as the backdrop. A genie used to be the main site character but has departed due to UKGC rulings. We get the feeling the site cambe about thanks to the arrival of the new Millionaire Genie slot game on the 888 platform. Wish itself is powered by Dragonfish and is networked with the likes of Costa, City and Rio.
Welcome Bonus For New Players
New players to Wish Bingo are welcomed with a nice first deposit bonus. Deposit £10 to receive 120 free bingo tickets. These tickets can only be used in selected rooms, but any wins are paid as cash. No wagering terms apply. Second and third deposit free ticket offers also apply.
Unsurprisingly given the nature of it's sister sites - Costa and Rio - free bingo is available at Wish! Non depositors can play for nothing in The Bingo Academy. Note that this is only accessible for 24 hours after registration. Further free bingo is available to depositing players only.
£5000 Genie's Goodies
Promotions wise things seem pretty decent at Wish Bingo. They include the free for depositors, Genie's Goodies, games every Friday. These are 5 x £1000 free games. Sounds familiar? Well that's because it's the same free game you can play on Costa and other Ignite Bingo brands. The Genie's Treasure offers £20 jackpots throughout the day for 1p a ticket whilst prizes can be won with Shooting Star and Wishign Well. Again these are networked across other sites and not exclusive.
We know that a lot of players don't mind the lack of exclusives and are happy to enjoy the usual array of 75 and 90 ball games. There are also plenty of slots to enjoy with Millionaire Genie, the recently added progressive jackpot slot, heavily featured. We expect other slots that fit the theme to get a similar treatment but the usual Fluffy Favourites and Sugar Train are there too.
The site perhaps could do with a bit of a makeover, although if that does happen we hope it doesn't lose too much character. Frustratingly, Wish hasn't quite managed to replicate the success of it's bigger sisters at Costa, City and Sing. That said, Wish Bingo is a decent site that utilises the popular Dragonfish/Cassava software. However recent changes with the no deposit bonus and free bingo haven't done the brand any favours.
