Founded in 2009, Costa Bingo promotes itself as the home of the “brightest bingo community” in the UK. The bingo operator has attracted the attention of UK players with its smart promotional campaigns like the ad that features a gigantic Scary Spice Girl Melanie B who strides across the streets of London frightening passers-by before she gracefully sits down on top of a building to play some Costa Bingo games on her mobile device.
Yet, Costa Bingo has more to offer than fun, smartly produced TV advertisements. Its Cassava-operated website features a nice range of 75-ball, 90-ball, jackpot and free bingo games alongside a variety of slots and casino table classics by suppliers like NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, and IGT. A portion of the operator’s portfolio runs on proprietary software.
Costa Bingo’s success can at least partially be attributed to its magnanimity towards new and existing players. Bingo rookies can start their gaming sessions with a nice no-deposit bonus while roomies who are willing to fund their accounts with actual money are in for a nice welcome package consisting of bonuses on their first three deposits. We elaborate on how this welcome package works below.
Full Welcome Package Terms and Conditions
New registered roomies at Costa Bingo receive a warm welcome in the form of a first-deposit bonus of 120 free tickets for different bingo games in select rooms. There is no need to enter any promotional codes for this offer, only a minimum deposit of £10 is required. This princely sum will qualify you for 30 tickets for each the following rooms – Ticket to Ride (with 75-ball bingo games with 1 and 2 TG prizes), Just the Ticket (75-ball games), Golden Ticket (90-ball games), and Choo Choo Ticket (5-line games).
The prizes you could win there when playing with bonus monies range between £2 and £10, depending on the room and the bingo pattern you win with. In cases, of multiple winners, the jackpot prizes are split between the lucky players. The overall prizes players are awarded in these four rooms exceed the amount of £1,500.
Newcomers’ second deposits of £10 earn them 60 free tickets for the 5-line games that take place in the Choo Choo Ticket Room. As if this is not enough, Costa Bingo rewards players who deposit £10 for a third time with 30 more free tickets, this time exclusively for the Golden Ticket Room where 90-ball bingo games with £5-prizes for a full house take place.
The games in both the Golden Ticket and the Choo Choo Ticket Room start at 10 pm and run every 20 minutes until midnight, presenting players with plenty of risk-free winning opportunities. Participating players can use no more than 6 free tickets per game. The winnings you accrue with your free bingo tickets will first be added to your bingo bonus balance. They will be transferred to your real-money balance after you clear the wagering requirements associated with the welcome offer. Wagering of 4x the total of the deposit and bonus amounts applies to these bonuses.
According to the terms and conditions of the operator, the wagering requirements must be met by playing bingo games only but the good news is these have the highest contribution. To our knowledge, Costa Bingo does not impose a cap on the free-ticket winnings eligible players can withdraw. That being said, players must comply with a minimum withdrawal limit, which is £5 at Costa Bingo. If you request a withdraw for a smaller amount, the transaction will not go through and the money will be returned to your balance.
Several other conditions must be reckoned with. Each new depositing customer can receive no more than one bonus upon completing their first, second and third deposits at Costa Bingo. You can proceed to claim a second-deposit bonus after you have used up your free tickets and have met the wagering requirements on the first-deposit bonus. Costa Bingo prohibits players from using one bonus in conjunction with another.
Another rule dictates that each customer can opt in only for one bonus per account and household. Take the time to carefully consider whether or not you intend to claim a welcome bonus. If you opt out of this promotion, you will not be offered these welcome bonuses again.
Also, the free bingo tickets your first three deposits earn you have an expiration time. If you do not use them within a period of one week after they had been credited to your new account, the tickets will be forfeited automatically after this time passes.
Costa Bingo prohibits players under 18 from partaking in betting activities and bonus redemption on its website. To prevent underage gambling on its platform, Costa Bingo requires all registered customers from the UK to undergo an age verification procedure within 3 days counting from the time they process their first deposit. Naturally, the same applies to customers who deposit for the purpose of claiming the welcome bonuses. Make sure you send the necessary documents to confirm your age in the designated timeframe as otherwise you will be locked out of your account.
Last but not least, the welcome package cannot be claimed by bingo players with permanent residence in Antigua, Belgium, Denmark, France, Gibraltar, Israel, Italy, Spain, Turkey, and the USA.
