Just days after lamenting the lack of Halloween promotions that are on in the bingo world, Costa Bingo decide it's time to get in on the action. They've launched a daily prize game called All Treats, No Tricks. The prize for the full house winner is a year of cake, but will you feel a little bit tricked when you hear about the treat?
The All Treats, No Tricks game plays at Costa Bingo each evening at 9.30pm until the 1st November. Tickets cost just 1p and you can pre-buy them plus you can play on mobile, desktop and tablet. It's a 75 ball game with a full house prize plus players who finish the game on 1TG or 2TG will collect 10 and 5 bonus slot spins respectively (terms apply).
The full house prize is a year of cake which is payable in the form of a Boots voucher or £80 cash. Now we don't know how much cake you eat over a course of 12 months but we felt pretty sure that £80 wasn't enough to cut the mustard. In fact the £80 works out at just over £1.50 a week which we guess will get you at least one nice treat every 7 days.
But what could you buy if you won the prize? We decided to go shopping and offer some ideas!
- 57 x Tesco Own Battenberg Cakes (£1.40)
- 29 x Tesco's Finest Carrot Cake (£2.75)
- 48 x Mr Kipling Viennese Whirls (£1.65)
- 20 x Asda Chocolate Gateau (£4)
- 29 x Sainsbury's Victoria Sandwich (£2.75)
- 80 x Sainsbury's Iced Coffee Madeira Cake (£1)
- 53 x McVitie's Lyle's Golden Syrup Cake (£1.50)
- 37 x Mr Kipling Angel Slices (£2.15)
We could break the above down further by factoring in the number of slices so as to gauge which one will get you the closest to 365 days of cake. However, the cheapest option of the Iced Coffee Madeira Cake is probably going to win hands down as you have more cake for your buck. This option would only need cutting into 4.5 pieces, compared to 6.5 for the Battenberg and 18.25 for the gateau if you were to enjoy one slice a day!
We haven't included the prices of cake in the likes of Costa and Starbucks because quite frankly we all know that £80 would hardly last the month! We're not quite sure where Costa Bingo derived their valuation of a year of cake from - we'd love to know - but it has given us plenty to ponder.
All this aside, these are good value games and it's well worth buying a few penny tickets for the chance to win the full house. And remember you don't have to buy a year of cake if you win!
