Monkey Bingo Review

Back in November 2014 there was yet another new addition to the expanding mini network from Costa Bingo. The next brand to join Treasure, Bingola, Angry, Rio and Wish in the Cassava/Dragonfish powered group was Monkey Bingo. Whilst this brand is aping the promotions of it's sister sites we felt that it had a lot more appeal.

Monkey Bingo looks great for a bingo site and the developers have had a lot of fun putting it together. Out goes the usual "new player", "free bingo" and "free bingo" names and in come things like "new monkey", "free bananas" and "orango offers". The star of the site is a very smiley monkey called Marvin and he's smiling as he's looking after King Kong sized offers and promotions.
New players are currently offered a £5 free no deposit bonus combined with a 250% welcome bonus on a deposit of £5 to £20. Marvin is also happy to give second depositors a 150% bonus and even a 100% bonus on third deposit. Use the codes NEW and MONEY to make sure you collect these. As usual terms and conditions apply when it comes to wagering and bonus money.
King Kong Cash
As well as 75 and 90 ball bingo rooms which offer a variety of games, including freebies, there are daily jackpots. All are aptly named and these include Monkey Money, Tarzan's Treasure, The Big Monkey and King Kong Cash. Unfortunately for Marvin these are all networked games and not unique to his little jungle in the bigger bingo world. Still they sound fun!
As with all new sites from the Costa Bingo camp opening promotions are limited. So what we have available at the moment is the £5K Free Banana and Going Nuts. The former is the Sunday free £5K game which is available for all depositors and which is ubiquitous on all new sites from this camp. The same can be said for Going Nuts which is a mix of "jungle games" that play throughout the day for as little as 1p a bingo card.
Gone Too Ape
Like it's sister sites there's a selection of top slots to play on including Millionaire Genie and Fluffy Favourites. Given the theme of the site we'd like to see Lion Dance and Amazon World. Disappointingly there's no monkey or ape themed slots - which we was a bit of a surprise. Sadly Monkey Bingo has few surprises and whilst it looks fabulous it's aping it's sister sites too much.
When we first reviewed Monkey Bingo we commented that "if a Fox can make it's way to the top of the bingo tree then maybe Marvin has an exciting future ahead". Unfortunately Marvin has been happy enough to sit in his tree without making too many waves in the bingo world. This is disappointing as Monkey looks great but needs more oomph to challenge the likes of Foxy.
