Mecca Bingo are one of the biggest brands in the bingo world. In 2015 they've successfully merged their online and mobile gaming activity with that of their offline clubs. Plus last year they brought the most surreal element to the table in the shape of dancing twerking cactus. It's not always been that way with them as in the early days they lagged well behind their Gala rivals - nowadays though they're really giving them a run for their money.

In 2015 the Mecca Bingo website had a big makeover to make it more mobile/tablet friendly. It also sadly saw the departure of Dr Paula Legg and her assortment of strange advertising fellows including that cactus. This has all resulted in one of the best sites around! It offers a good range of games, a good mix of promotions, an active community and plenty more besides.

No Deposit Newbie Room

New players are welcomed with a decent first deposit offer of spend 10 to receive a 400% bonus. In addition to the 40 to play online there's also a 10 voucher to play in clubs. One thing worth noting about Mecca's 40 online bonus is that it can only be used for bingo. A number of other Virtue Fusion network brands offer a similar 400% bonus but the bonus is shared for gaming and bingo - and gaming tends to come with a higher wagering term. Wagering terms do apply to the 40 though and this is typically x2 or x4 for a VF website.

Although Mecca Bingo doesn't have a no deposit bonus for new players it does have a newbie room. No deposit is required to access the new player room for the first seven days after registration. You will be able to play free bingo from 12pm to 1pm and 6pm to 8pm daily. Once your time in the newbie room is up you'll be invited to "graduate" with more free tickets and the chance to win up to 1000 in some additional special games.

The X Factor Bingo

As you'd expect there's plenty of bingo to choose from at Mecca. They have almost 25 rooms to visit including Deal Or No Deal, Britain's Got Talent, The X Factor and Rainbow Riches. They used to have a Blockbusters Bingo game too but sadly this has closed. However the choice is impressive and on top of the rooms there's a variety of games including roll ons, 1TG and 2TG, Last Chance Saloon, Superbooks and of course Bingo Linx hjackpots.

Slots do play a part at Mecca Bingo and there are regular promotions for those players who enjoy a spin or two. Amongst the games featured you'll find Merlin's Millions, Super Monopoly Money, Wheel Of Fortune, OMG Kittens, Rainbow Riches, Cleopatra and Golden Goddess. These can all be played via freeplay for fun without registering as a player. A few of the slots are accessible via mobile/tablet.

Everyone's A Winner

Promotions are where Mecca Bingo really do well. Over recent months they've offered holidays, cash and even cars in a variety of promos such as Everyone's A Winner. They regularly host prize games and there's usually always something exclusive alongside the many Virtue Fusion jackpots and offers that run every month. As well as exclusives on the website you'll also find them on the busy and regularly updated Mecca Bingo Facebook page.

The above doesn't even cover the many other elements of what you can find at Mecca Bingo. If you're a club player then there's information about the latest promotions for you. There's also regularly updates about Mecca's charity work under Rank Cares. At time of writing they're supporting Carers Trust and raising funds in a number of ways including hosting special games at the start of every month.

This review probably doesn't come close to giving Mecca Bingo the kudos it deserves, especially given that we remember it when it was an ugly site with little going for it. An ugly duckling has truly become a glorious beautiful swan.
