There are several brands available online currently that are part of the Mandalay Media group, probably the best known is Costa Bingo. Recently we saw Rio Bingo become the sixth to join the company portfolio and then late last week, Wish Bingo became the seventh. Sadly what we are finding with the sites is that they are becoming much of a muchness with new room names or promotional names hiding the network link between all sites. That said, new players can get £10 free from Wish Bingo.
We’ve long been stalwart fans of Costa Bingo and their impressive promotional schedule but after realising that Rio Bingo, and now Wish Bingo, were actually full of networked rooms with different names – the rose coloured tint has worn off of our bingo glasses.
With other networked sites, namely Cashcade or Dragonfish, it is abundantly clear that a site is linked because all of the rooms are named the same whichever site you login into. This is not the case with new bingo sites like Rio, Wish, Fancy etc – many of the rooms, whilst actually linked across sites, have individual names according to the theme of the site you are currently logged in at.
Mandalay Media may attribute this to the theme of each site but, in our opinion, it all seems very underhand. Maybe the company could issue a statement which lists which rooms are networked across the site to be more transparent?
All of that said, as players you do benefit from the link with the Diamond rewards so even if brands like Wish Bingo were to be more transparent with the networked links, we don’t think player numbers would drop across the network.
Anyway, why not pop along and grab your £10 free from Wish Bingo, you simply have to ensure you enter your financial details at registration to receive the bonus immediately.
