Wish Bingo Review
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! Here you will find online bingo 24 hours a day, 7 days a week as well as a fabulous array of top slots and games.
Introducing Wish Bingo
Wish Bingo started life with an Arabian Nights theme. A genie used to be the main character on the site but that departed due to UKGC rulings on images that may appeal to children. At this point Wish changed tack and took on the more mystical meaning of the word 'wish'. The site is stylishly designed in blues and purples whilst inspirational quotes like "Dare To Dream" and "Dream It Do It" now represent some of the daily jackpots. Although it's simplistic in design we do like the look. Players can access Wish via mobile, tablet and desktop. No apps are required.
Wish Bingo Welcome Bonus
Register at Wish Bingo, login and then deposit £10 and you will receive 120 free bingo tickets. These free bingo tickets can only be used in selected rooms: Ticket To Ride (75), Just The Ticket (75), Golden Ticket (90) and Choo Choo Ticket (5 Line). The rooms are open from 10am to midnight daily and winnings are paid as real cash. No wagering terms apply. Further free tickets are offered on your second and third Wish Bingo deposits. Over £1500 is paid out daily in these rooms but remember they are shared with other sites in the same group such as Frozen, Sparkly and Dino.
We all wish for free bingo and your wish comes true at Wish! Login and visit The Bingo Academy, a free bingo room that's open for two days after registration with no deposit needed. The room is also open for five days after your first deposit. Every 15 minutes you can play a 90 ball real cash game. Play for 25p for 1L, 50p for 2L and £1 for the full house. It's not exactly big money but it does give you a flavour of what to expect. Withdrawal terms apply so you will need to deposit before you can take out any winnings that arise from these games.
Wish Bingo Promotions
Wish Bingo offers four variants on the popular game. Login to the lobby to find 75 ball, 5 Line, 90 Ball and 52 ball versions of bingo. There are plenty of bargain bingo games as well as extra freebies for depositors. Wish also offers access to daily jackpot games. As mentioned above these have inspirational titles! Positive Vibes for example plays at 9pm every Thursday and gives you the chance to win a share of £500. Meanwhile Reason To Smile takes place on a Sunday and is free to play if you have deposited at Wish Bingo in the last 6 days.
Back in the day Wish Bingo used to host a number of regular prize promotions. Although to be fair these weren't exclusive and were shared with other brands. Some of these games continue although the prize is always a cash prize. Wishing Well for example runs at 10pm on a Wednesday. Tickets for this game is 1p and pre-buy is available. Other regulars at Wish include The Best Things in Life are (Almost) Free and Let Life Surprise You. These games take place daily at selected times.
Whilst Wish Bingo never quite hit the same heights of Costa and Sing, it was one of the better brands amongst the rest of the Costa stable. We loved the Arabian Nights theme and it was sad to see it go. The more mystical theme doesn't quite grab us in the same way. It feels like we should be in a spa rather than playing bingo. Most certainly it lacks character now. Thankfully there's still plenty of positive energy here including free bingo, 1p games and daily jackpots.
The no wagering terms environment is another plus point for Wish. We also like that fact that slots aren't front and centre. There are a few issues such as a few pages on Wish being out of date. This is because the Ignite group were purchased by 888 and it seems little has been done to update content. Inside the lobby things are up to date. Why visit Wish Bingo? The welcome offer, no wagering terms and selection of games should be enough to tempt you to take a look. However if you're already with Costa for example you might want to try somewhere completely different.
