Wish Bingo is the latest brand to be launched by the Mandalay Media group, the company behind names such as BGO Bingo, Costa Bingo and Rio Bingo to name but a few. The site is powered by the popular Globalcom software, but even though they bill themselves as a standalone site, we have discovered that many of their rooms are actually networked, which means you will be competing against players from the other six sites that make up the group. There is no mention of this however, which in our opinion is a tad sneaky, and something they really should clarify so their player’s know exactly where they stand.
Nevertheless the site is easy on the eye with a purple and gold colour scheme and a jolly blue genie. The whole place has a Disney’s Aladdin feel about it, which is not a bad thing but it won’t appeal to everybody. The home page of Wish Bingo is made up of a sliding banner that advertises their welcome bonuses, a brief introduction and a couple of graphics displaying the values of some of their jackpots and a list of the most recent winners. The rest of the site can be accessed from the simple menu at the top of the screen and there is a handy ‘New’ section to help get you started.
When you click on the large golden ‘Join Now’ button, you will be taken to a one page registration page where you will have to enter the usual details such as name, address, email address and username. You are required to enter your credit card details, but don’t worry they won’t take any money until you are ready to make a deposit. You will be welcomed with a small amount of free money so you can get a feel for the place and if you decide you want to fund your account, you will earn a bonus on every deposit you make.
The lobby continues the purple and gold theme and you will find eight tabs offering a wide range of games including 75 ball bingo, 90 ball bingo, jackpot games and a wide range of slots and instant games. Click on any of these tabs and you will find a number of different rooms, some of which are for funded players only and some that are only open during certain hours of the day. Make sure you take some time to check out the free bingo section as they give you plenty of opportunities to win real cash prizes without having to spend a penny.
The rooms themselves use the Globalcom softwares standard layout, so the odds are everything will look very familiar. This is no bad thing though as everything is well designed with large sections of the screen dedicated to displaying your cards and enjoying a bit of banter with the other roomies. There are plenty of built in features to keep things interesting and you can also access all of the instant games without it interfering with your bingo play; This comes in really handy during those boring minutes whilst you are waiting for the next bingo game to start.
At the moment their promotions are restricted to bonuses, jackpot games and a loyalty scheme, but we can forgive them this as they have only just opened their virtual doors. If they follow the trend set by the other Mandalay Media group sites, we can expect to see this line-up expanded in the very near future as they never scrimp when it comes to promotions. The jackpot games they do have will keep you going for now though and there is plenty of guaranteed cash, Loyalty Diamonds and Wish Points just waiting to be won.
Wish Bingo is not a bad site, they are home to a great range of games and enough jackpots to keep most players happy. The trouble is, at they moment they just can’t compete with their sister sites; Costa Bingo, Sing Bingo and City Bingo all offer the same experience but with many more benefits and prizes. We are sure this will change as the site develops though, so you might as well register now and take advantage of their free no deposit bonus whilst it is available, after all you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Wish Bingo Review – Bingo Games
Game Options at Wish Bingo
Wish Bingo uses the Globalcom software and is home to both 75 ball and 90 ball bingo, plus a wide range of instant games. The software is one of the nicest around and you see that is has been tweaked many times over the years to make sure everything works just right. There are loads of options built in, including the ability to change the shape and colour of your dauber to make things a bit more colourful. There is a handy auto buy feature so you can purchase cards even if you have to step away from the computer for a while.
In the chat room you will find plenty of emoticons and plenty of the usual acronyms such as GL, WTG, 3TG, 2TG and 1TG, all of which save you time and all that repetitive typing. You can change the size and colour of the font to suit your own tastes and lock down chat if you want to read anything before it vanishes. One of the nicest features though, is the ability to purchase virtual gifts with your Loyalty Points, and you can then send them to any of the other roomies.
Wish Bingo is home to an abundance of free bingo games for both funded and none funded players. Head into the lobby and click on the Free Bingo tab and you will find five different rooms to choose from. The Free Bazaar is a 75 ball bingo room and Free Wishes is for all of you 90 ball bingo fans. These two rooms can be accessed by everyone and you will be able to play for real cash prizes ranging between £1 and £2. Free Wishes is another 90 ball room but for funded players only, and it is here where you can win larger cash prizes.
The other two rooms are a bit more special though. The Welcome room is the exclusive jackpot room just for first time depositors. Once you have funded your account for the first time, you will be able to access the room for twenty four hours, where you have the chance to win a guaranteed £15 cash every hour on the hour. Every time you make another deposit, you will instantly be rewarded with twenty four hours free access to the exclusive Open Sesame room where there’s a guaranteed £20 real cash jackpot to be won every hour.
If you make a deposit during the week, you will also gain access to the 10K Gold Souk room. This room is open for just one free game each Friday night at 10pm, and there is a whopping £10,000 up for grabs.
You will find a constant stream of guaranteed jackpots popping up throughout the day, spread across all of Wish Bingo’s rooms. Head to the Jackpots section of the lobby though, and you will be able to pre-purchase cards for all seven of Wish Bingo’s nightly jackpot games, where you can win cash, Diamonds and Wish Points.
From the moment you make your first deposit at Wish Bingo, you become part of their Diamond Club VIP programme. As you play your favourite games you will earn Diamonds, climb the loyalty ladder, and unlock a range of top benefits. There are loads of exciting things you can do with these Diamonds too including converting them into free cards into games, bonus cash, deposit bonuses or even real cash and fantastic prizes such as a brand new iPad!
The specials offers do not end there though, because Wish Bingo like to reward you for the time you spend playing, Their loyalty scheme is their way of showing you how much they care, so they give you the opportunity to earn Wish Points by winning chat games or for special promotions! You can keep track of how many points you have accumulated on your accounts page, and you can redeem every 1,000 Wish Points for £1 worth of bingo funds.
