Mecca Bingo Review
Mecca Bingo has been a household name amongst bingo players for many years, as far back as the 1960s when it comes to retail clubs. It was inevitable that this brand took to the Internet with their offering and over the years, we have seen many changes to their website. Mecca is a brand you can trust and with innovative games to offer, it’s a must-visit for the discerning online bingo player.

Welcome offer for new players
When you register an account with Mecca Bingo you have seven days to deposit and spend £10 with them to take full advantage of the warm welcome they extend to new players.
For your £10 deposit you get a £30 bingo bonus, a £20 slots bonus, and a £10 voucher to spend at your local Mecca Bingo hall. This bonus gives you a little taster of all that this well-known brand has to offer; it covers all the bingo bases!
New player bonus wagering requirements
With quite the history in online bingo, it’s no wonder then that this brand gets the wagering requirements on their bonuses spot on. You’re not expected to wager excessive amounts in order to withdraw any winnings from the bonuses received; in fact, these have to be some of the fairest wagering rules online to date.
For the bingo bonus, you have to wager it just once which means you have to spend just £30 before winnings become available for withdrawal. The slots bonus has wagering of just 4x. That means you have to wager £80 in Reel King Mega before winnings can be withdrawn. The stakes on the game are capped at £0.40 per spin whilst the slots bonus is still active.
There is no wagering attached to the £10 club voucher. Any winnings in the club are given to you in cash immediately.
All bonuses remain in your account for seven days.
How to deposit and withdraw
There are just four ways with which you can deposit funds into your account at Mecca Bingo. Whilst this is quite limited when compared to some other online bingo brands, the two most popular options are available; debit card and PayPal. These are complemented with Paysafecard and Click to pay.
The minimum deposit amount is £5 and the minimum withdrawal amount is listed as £10 but with a note stating ‘A minimum of £10, unless your balance is less than £10’.
Mecca Bingo promotions
Often we are left slightly disappointed when visiting a promotional page at some online bingo sites. This is not the case when we headed over to Mecca Bingo’s promo page!
It starts with the welcome bonus and acceptable wagering requirements and then continues with a whole plethora of time-limited, changeable offers that keep coming month after month.
Alongside the monthly specials, you will also find a selection of ongoing promotions. A couple of examples of these are below:
Penny Lane – as the name suggests, it’s a penny bingo promotion and it happens every day from 6 pm until 10 pm in the room of the same name. Prizes per game are guaranteed at either £50 or £100 and have five roll-on prizes. There will also be two Meccalink games with £500 prize money.
Lucky For Some – even cheaper than penny bingo are free games and these are offered every day from 5 pm until 6 pm in the room of the same name.
Complementing these are a selection of jackpot games.
Mecca Bingo bonus codes
A bonus code is not required to claim the new player bonus but when it comes to Mecca Bingo bonus codes, you might find that you are sent some if you register to receive special offers and deals from the brand by email or SMS.
Games to play
It would take us far too long to list all of the bingo games that are available to players at this impressive site. Not only do Mecca Bingo have the usual 75 and 90 ball games that we all know and love, but they are also home to 80 ball bingo (Cashline).
However, whilst they do the standard bingo variants, it is worth noting that these come in many different themes and with an array of bonuses, or extra features.
Mecca Bingo is home to exclusive bingo games like Britain’s Got Talent Bingo and Emoji Bingo. Rollercoaster Bingo is another and you can see a little more information about this on the clip below.
Navigation around the main lobby is easy with the different game types available to view all at once or using a specific choice.
Session Bingo is another great feature of this site, also BOB (Best Odds Bingo) – lookout for them from the main lobby.
All of that is quite the choice in itself, but Mecca also offers an extensive slots and instant win sections including exclusive titles. Again, all can be viewed from the main games lobby.
Support at Mecca Bingo
There is a dedicated Help section on site and by visiting this page you will find the support options available. This includes the ability to search their extensive FAQ section for the answer to your question.
Additionally, you can use the Live Help feature or complete the online webform to send them an email. Alternatively, you can drop them a line on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you require an immediate response to your query, we suggest calling them on 0800 083 1988.
All of the chat hosts in the rooms are very well-versed about the Mecca Bingo product so it may be that they are able to help you with any query that you may have
Sites like Mecca Bingo
Mecca Bingo is a standalone bingo brand so doesn’t have sister sites in the sense that players in the rooms are Mecca Bingo players online.
However, if you are specifically looking for other bingo sites that use the same software platform, there are a number of brands that are also powered by the Virtue Fusion / Playtech offering. These include, but are not limited to:
Mecca Bingo TV ads
Mecca Bingo has advertised on television many times over the years, and many stars have been involved in marketing their brand.
In 2015 the site used a dancing cactus in their advert but more recently, and our favourite of the commercials from this brand, they used the 1983 song by Los Del Rio when they launched the #Meccarena.
The commercial certainly grabbed the viewer’s attention, at least those of a certain age group.
As well as the standard full adverts, you will also see this brand advertise various features of their site on social media (YouTube, Facebook, etc.) so it is well worth giving them a follow on these platforms.
Mecca Bingo summary
There’s only one score that Mecca Bingo rightfully deserves considering the amount of choice in games, customer service, playability, innovative games, and low wagering requirements – it has to be a top score of five stars from us.
Mecca Bingo brings more and more to the bingo table and is up with the latest industry trends and demands from their players. You could say they have their finger on the bingo pulse at all times!
