Bingo bonuses and therefore players have been hit hard over the last 12/18 months. Welcome offers, loss of free bingo and reload bonuses disappearing are just some of the changes. We have wondered whether these changes have also resulted in the decline of online bingo? However, are things about to change again as Costa Bingo are now going back to rewarding their regular depositors.
To be fair to Costa Bingo, they were the one Dragonfish group that kept hold of reload bonuses as long as possible. Others like Foxy and those on the main Dragonfish Network dropped them quite quickly. Unfortunately the days of a percentage bonus on every deposit have pretty much gone, so what's now on offer for players at Costa Bingo.
Catching Rays & Free Bingo Tickets
First of all depositors get access to a new game called Catching Rays. Top up with just £5 to play this daily game. Login and spin the sun to collect a guaranteed prize. Prizes include real cash, diamonds, Costa points, free spins, free bingo tickets and deposit bonuses. Terms apply, but only the deposit bonus has a wagering term (x4 deposit + x4 bonus). Catching Rays can be played for 6 consecutive days after topping up.
Joining the Catching Rays game is a new promo called 2 Top-Up Treats. Make a deposit of at least £10 to receive up to 40 bingo tickets to the Costa Network's exclusive rooms. Note that the number of tickets you receive is determined by your VIP status. The higher up the VIP ladder you are then the more tickets you collect. At the basic blue level the reward for a £10 deposit is 6 Tickets for the Choo Choo Ticket Room.
Reload Freebie Bingo
As well as the bingo tickets, topping up with at least a tenner gives you access to free bingo. Costa Bingo recently dropped their 24/7 freebie room and replaced it with The Bingo Academy. Depositors can access the It's Free Baby Room but there's also the Reload Freebie. This is open for 24 hours after you make a deposit.
The Reload Freebie offers a free game every hour. Get your tickets to play for £25-£50. These jackpots are paid out as cash and therefore no wagering terms apply. It's worth a punt grabbing the tickets - firsly because they're free but also because the number of players is surprisingly less than you'd expect.
Other Reload Offers
As yet Costa Bingo's sister sites (City, Season, Sing etc) haven't jumped on the reload bandwagon. We suspect that if it's a success at Costa then they will follow suit. Whether other brands on other networks pick up the reload baton remains to be seen.
However, we think that it needs to happen. Rewards such as reloads and free bingo used to be prevalent with online bingo. Then they were all taken away leaving players with nothing in return for their deposits. We believe this has resulted in less interest in playing online bingo. Costa will be hoping that their steps have a positive effect.
