The Shop Opens At Costa Bingo
Article Updated On 5th May 2021
It's been quite a while since Costa Bingo or indeed any of it's sister brands such as Sing and City featured in our news section. To be fair, since these brands were taken over by 888 they've not been that prolific when it comes to player promotions. However recently there has been an update on thse brands with a change in the rewards programme. The original Diamond Clubs have all now been replaced by 'The Shop' which is the same as the Wink Rewards set-up over at Wink Bingo.
Goodbye Diamonds! Hello Diamonds
The Diamond Club was the name of Costa Bingo's original loyalty programme. Players could earn diamonds for every £1 wagered on bingo and the accrued Diamonds could then be used to purchase game cards, bonuses etc. The Shop set-up isn't that much different to it's predecessor. In fact it sounds identical! Players can earn Diamonds for every £1 wagered on bingo and £10 wagered on slots. These amounts must be played in a single session - so if you play 90p on bingo then you get no Diamonds; play £2.40 and it's two Diamonds. The outstanding amounts don't roll over to other sessions. Players start earning points once they join Costa Bingo.
Go Shopping For Rewards
When you've earnt enough Diamonds you can then spend them in The Shop. The Shop offers free spins, bingo tickets, real money, jackpot spins and bonus money. You will need 600 Diamonds to claim £1 in real cash but just 420 for £1 in bonus money. However you need only 105 points if you'd like 5 free tickets to play the 52 ball playing card bingo game, Bingo Vegas. These may seem like good deals but if you put it in real terms - and our maths is correct - then that's £600 worth of bingo or £6000 of slot play to generate a £1 cash reward or if you like a 0.16% or 0.016% bonus on your wagering. We're not quite sure that feels like a good reward but maybe it's better than nothing.
The big difference with this new Shop set-up at Costa Bingo is that it links up with other sites. According to the information on site your Diamonds will be shared across all accounts based on your email address. So if you play at 888 Ladies and Costa for example and use the same email address for both then wagering on both will generate one pot of loyalty points rather than two separate ones. This accounts for all 888 and old Ignite brands so includes the likes of Wink, Posh, Angry, Monkey, Sing, City, Fancy and 888 Ladies. Note that the token (e.g. Diamonds) varies from site to site so at 888 Ladies you earn coins. We really like this approach with the reward scheme and would like to see other groups of site (e.g. Gamesys and Jumpman) adopt something similar.
Time For Some New Promos?
Over the years Costa Bingo has been at the forefront of player promotions. They've given away cars, cash, holidays and even some of Mel B's fashion. Whilst it's unlikely we'll ever get back to those heady days of big prizes it would be nice to see more from them - and indeed their sister brands. Costa were very active for example with prize games and if new kids on the block Prize Land Bingo can offer tangible prizes then why not Costa? Even more so if they link up rooms with the likes of Wink and Posh too. Hopefully the alignment of 'The Shop' with the Wink group is the first step towards creating more interest and excitement for players.
