Mummies Bingo Review
Joining the ever growing ranks of The Live Bingo Network on the Cozy Games platform is Mummies Bingo. Now if you're expecting an Egyptian themed site with lots of bandaged bodies promoting bingo then you're going to be disappointed. Mummies Bingo is in fact aimed at Mums! To date the site, which won awards from BingoPort and Which Bingo in 2016, has managed to so far survive the Cozy Games closures. Are you ready for a "first rate bingo experience"?
We're not too sure about the name - Mummies Bingo - we actually think the Egyptian theme would work a lot better. However, the brand is obviously hoping to appeal to the Netmums and Mumsnet bingo brigade. In fact the site actually says that Mummies is a "a brand new bingo site just for all you hot mamas out there"!! Still the name is better than Gravy Train and United Colours in the bingo name stakes. The site does look quite dated in design though and features a cartoon style mum as it's main character. Obviously she doesn't appeal to kids because she'd have been kicked in to touch like many other bingo characters.
Mummies Bingo Bonus
New players to Mummies Bingo are welcomed with a £3000 Week Of Free Bingo. Register and login to access the new player room to play. Note that any wins from these games are paid out as a bonus and has a x4 wagering term. Whilst the free bingo is the same for other Cozy sites, Mummies Bingo's first deposit bonus is slightly different. A deposit of £10 gets you a 50% bingo bonus, £15 means a 67% bingo bonus whilst a £20 first deposit results in a 100% deposit bonus plus 20 spins on Fluffy Favourites. Wagering terms of x4 for bingo and x40 for slots apply. In addition, make a £10 reload and you'll get a spin of the Fortune Wheel every day for seven days.
Inside the lobby of Mummies Bingo you can enjoy a good choice of bingo variants. There are a range of games including 30, 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo. The rooms include Down Town (80), City Hall (30), Devoted Dabbers (75) and Big Ben (90). These rooms are joined by jackpot games such as The 10K Sliding Jackpot. Ticket prices range from 2p up to £1 so there's plenty of bargain games to enjoy. Pre-buy is available on selected games. None of the rooms are exclusive to Mummies so you'll be playing against people from Foxy, Coral and others using the same platform.
Mummies Bingo Promotions
As mentioned in the introduction, Mummies Bingo started life as an award winning site. However, when the site changed owners things changed! For example the social media pages were left redundant. This pretty much killed off Mummies Bingo in our view. The welcome offer and Fortune Wheel are the only elements of the site that actually differentiate it from other sites. Albeit there's now only a few of the original Cozy Games brands left running. They all now run the same promotions such as a £10K monthly jackpot game and monthly network offers that give you the chance to win bonuses.
Many of the offers and bonuses are very much slots orientated. In fact the slots and casino area are where Cozy Games have improved things. Players now have access to a full suite of games like Heart Beat, Fluffy In Space, Starburst, Vikings Go Bezerk and many more. Casino games like blackjack, roulette and Dream Catcher complete an impressive line-up. All games are accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop. No app is required to play on devices.
Mummies Bingo is another survivor of the great Cozy Games cull of 2019. Whilst this is a good thing for Mummies and their players, we're not sure how much longer it has left. The same can be applied to any company, but as Mummies is running the same bingo rooms and slots as Foxy Bingo in our view it's more prudent to wager at Foxy - assuming you're looking to use the Cozy Games platform. Foxy is more likely to still be around whereas the future of Mummies is potentially a lot shorter.
If you do choose Mummies then there is still plenty to enjoy. The free bingo trial always remains attractive although the welcome bonus not so much. We like the variety of bingo rooms that are available at Mummies and the slots selection as good as any other. The promotions and exclusives though are poor or uninspiring. And it's for this reason we would suggest looking at Foxy or Coral. Both are on the same software, both have recently been revamped and both offer a better all round user experience. Mummies may have been a top site in 2016 but not in 2020.
