How To Play Coconut Island Bingo
To play Coconut Island Bingo you need to head to Gala. Login to the relevant room and you'll be greeted with a tropical seaside scene. At the top of the bingo room you'll see a palm tree and this area hosts all the game details including player numbers, prizes and jackpots. When the game starts a sandy beach appears and coconuts from the tree drop down and crack open to reveal the bingo numbers. The only thing this game is lacking is some Hula Hula music and a couple of cocktails. To the right of the bingo room there's a chat area whilst in mini games you have the option to play Coconut Island slot and scratchcard games.
Coconut Island is a 50 ball bingo room. Players can purchase between 1 and 60 tickets per game and prices start at 5p although occasionally there are Multi Stake games so just watch out for them. Game names vary and include Castaway, Reef, Hammock, Starfish, Paradise, Tropical Storm and Hammock. These names can make a difference to the base game as for example you may get a BOGOF deal, get free tickets, or win on 2TG. Each bingo ticket has 10 numbers and these are in a 2x5 formation. There are two prizes on offer - one line and the full house. As with other bingo games the bingo numbers will be called - or in this case coconuts will fall out of the tree - until the full house is won.
Coconut Island Features & Jackpots
When Coconut Island first arrived at Gala Bingo it offered two additional jackpots as well as the base game prizes. A progressive Treasure Chest jackpot could be won by getting a full house in 15 calls or less. Meanwhile a fixed Oyster Jackpot could be won if house is called on 18 calls. As far as we know these prizes have now been dropped in favour of Gala's site wide must drop jackpots. These are prizes which must be won hourly, daily, weekly and monthly. In addition there's a Bingo Boss jackpot! Full details about these prizes can be found at Gala. Note none of them are community pots so the prizes aren't shared by the winner and roomies.
If you like the your bingo to be tropical then Coconut Island on Gala Bingo is your perfect destination. We love the theme and the coconut dropping number calls animation is pretty cool. We're pretty sure when the game first launched it had lapping waves sound effects and it's a shame they aren't around now. In our view it needs a little extra something to give things a bit of oomph. We want to close our eyes and dream we're playing bingo in the Caribbean. It's interesting that Gala have dropped the call jackpots in favour of the must drops, but the latter cover more rooms and at least get won more often. Aside from that this is a fun variation of the 50 ball bingo theme.
