If you suffer from Coulrophobia then you may wish to avoid the latest addition to the Costa Bingo collective. Bingola is the next brand to join Angry, Wish and Rio on the new site conveyor belt that's currently at full speed over at Mandalay Media. The strapline for Bingola is The Free Bingo Funfair - but it has clowns!!
We presume that the name Bingola comes from a combination of "bingo" and "tombola" and the two together results in a funfair themed site. The site itself looks great! It has big and bold graphics, is very colourful and has a fun theme. We don't really get the clown though - even if it does have a bingo ball hard hat! Mind you it's presence does mean that Bingola could have a cheap game called Pennywise!!!
200% First Deposit Bonus
In all seriousness, what's actually on offer from Bingola? Well new players are welcomed with some free bingo and a 200% first deposit bonus. This is only available for deposits of up to £10! Go on and make a second deposit and you'll get a 150% bonus with code NEW1 whilst code NEW2 will bag you a 100% third bonus. Wagering requirements terms are x4!
The Free Bingo Funfair is full of freebies! A free bingo room is open to all players - funded and non-funded. Real cash prizes are on offer but you would need to deposit before you're able to withdraw any winnings. Depositors are rewarded with access to additional games. If you choose to pay to play then there's a nice selection of 75 ball, 5 line bingo and 90 ball rooms.
You may be thinking by now - haven't I heard this all before? And you'll be right in thinking "yes". Bingola is simply a sister site of Rio, Angry and Wish - which are all in turn related to City, Costa, Sing and Fancy. It does seem that Mandalay Media are trying to grab more of the player market by creating more and more brands. In some ways that's good - but it can get a little confusing.
Unlike some of the brands, there are actually no exclusive Bingola promotions. What you do have is The £10K Free Show every Friday (the same game as Costa Crazy), a £5000 Jackpot game on a Sunday and Thrill Seeker jackpots throughout the day. In addition there are progressives, lots of games to play and of course a decent selection of slots. We'd really love to see something exclusive to Bingola, even if it is to win a clown outfit!
Overall it's a great looking site but scrape away at the surface and push away the clown and it's a struggle to see anything new. The free bingo is perhaps a good excuse to take a look.
