Wish Bingo Review
Updated On Thursday 5th October 2017
New Player Offer: 250% Bonus - 3 Days Free
Wagering terms and conditions will apply - Please gamble responsibly!
Mandalay Media/Iginite Bingo had a very busy 2014! They started by launching Rio Bingo and were in the process of selling their business. With the latter news you may have expected that the present incumbents would rest on their laurels, but that wasn't the case as another new brand joined the Sing, Costa, City and Fancy group. Grab your lanterns and make a wish for Wish Bingo!

Wish Bingo has an Aladdin and the Lamp type feel to it. There's an Arabian town scene as the backdrop and a Genie who appears to be the main site character. We get the feeling the site has come about thanks to the arrival of the new Millionaire Genie slot game on the 888 platform. Wish itself is powered by Dragonfish. Cassava Enterprises and whilst standalone from the main network we believe it's networked to Costa and Rio.
£5 Free For New Players
New players to Wish Bingo are welcomed with a nice £5 free no deposit bonus. Card details must be entered if you wish to pick up the freebie. For depositors there's an initial 250% bonus on deposits between £5 and £20. A second welcome bonus of 100% is also available provided you use the bonus code shown on site. This is valid once for all players. Finally there's the usual 50% reload offer on all subsequent deposits. Wagering terms apply.
Unsurprisingly given the nature of it's sister sites - Costa and Rio - free bingo is available at Wish! Non depositors can play for nothing in selected free rooms whilst there's a special "Welcome" free game for first time depositors. When you fund your account as a regular player you'll also be able to enter the Open Sesame room for 24 hours to play a guaranteed £20 real cash jackpot every hour.
Free £10,000 Game
Promotions wise things are pretty decent at Wish Bingo. They have the free for depositors, Sorcererís Stash, game at 10pm every Friday. It's a £10K sliding jackpot game that also offers £3000 for 1TG and 2TG players. Sounds familiar? Well that's because it's the same free £10K game you can play on Costa and other Ignite Bingo brands. The Genie's Treasure offers £50 and £100 jackpots during the day for just 5p and 10p but again these are networked across other sites and not exclusive.
We know that a lot of players don't mind the lack of exclusives and are happy to enjoy the usual array of 75 and 90 ball games. There are also plenty of slots to enjoy with Millionaire Genie, the recently added progressive jackpot slot, heavily featured. We expect other slots that fit the theme to get a similar treatment but the usual Fluffy Favourites and Sugar Train are there too.
The site perhaps could do with a bit of a makeover, although if that does happen we hope it doesn't lose too much character. Frustratingly, Wish hasn't quite managed to replicate the success of it's bigger sisters at Costa, City and Sing. That said, Wish Bingo is a decent site that utilises the popular Dragonfish/Cassava software - the no deposit bonus and free bingo should encourage new player take a look.
