Mecca Bingo review

Mecca Bingo is a brand that is synonymous with land-based bingo, with over 100 clubs around the UK and over 15 million customer visits every year. This is before you add the amount of visitors that are playing online, which is also huge for a brand brand that has grown from strength to strength. Mecca Bingo was founded in 1961 and now makes up a large part of the turnover at Rank Group, which owns Mecca Bingo as well as Grosvenor Casinos and Blue Square Gaming. Having only been to a Mecca Bingo hall once I cannot really comment on them, however I have played online at their site quite a bit and I have to say it is pretty good. Once you get over the bright pink everywhere you are greeted with a good selection of online bingo and wagering games. The site is really easy to use, with little thinking required. Most of the navigation is found at the top of the site, with sub navigations to get to lower menus.

Mecca Bingo online is registered and licenced in Alderney, with is good news for players as this is one of the strictest jurisdictions for remote gambling. There are several indicators at the bottom of the website to give me the impression that Mecca Bingo is a responsible operator in many ways.

Gameplay - 8/10

One thing Mecca Bingo has a lot of is players, which means lots of chat and banter when playing bingo. It really doesn’t seem to matter what time you go onto play there always seems to be lots of activity in the bingo rooms. As well as pay-for bingo games there is also plenty of free bingo, with little waiting times for games during normal hours. There are also plenty of very enticing jackpots, with tens of thousands of pounds given away every hour on the site.

If you like slots then Mecca Bingo has plenty to choose from. Lots of the favourites such as Rainbow Riches, Deal or No Deal and Cleopatra can be found here as well as the X Factor Jackpot with up to £50K available to be won. There are also instant wins to play, such as Chain Reactors, Virtual Horses and Lucky Star. These are quite often played between games of bingo or just to do something different.


Promotions - 9/10

New players joining Mecca Bingo can grab themselves up to £50 matched deposit bonus. Simply deposit between £5-£50 on your first deposit and Mecca Bingo will match that in your account. You do need to meet the wagering requirements of this bonus before withdrawing it, so check the terms for details if you want to know more.

Being such a big brand allows Mecca Bingo to arrange partnerships with major TV programs and events. This means you can always be in with a chance to see some great shows or attend something really cool by being a player at the site. Competitions are running all the time, so if you are registered with them you will get to take part.


Transactions - 8/10

Most popular forms of deposit method are available at Mecca Bingo including all major credit/debit cards as well as Switch, Solo and Laser. There are also other ewallet and pre-paid methods available such as Neteller, Moneybookers (Skrill) and uKash. Getting money out of Mecca Bingo is very simple and quick. Make a request through the cashier and you can expect your withdrawal to be in your account within 12-24 hours. You may be asked to provide some sort of ID on your first withdrawal, which is not uncommon at most gambling sites.

Mecca Bingo use highly sophisticated encryption technology to protect customer details from getting hacked or mis-used. It is in their interest to have security at a very high standard, as they are such a big brand and they would get a lot of attention if they weren’t looking after your details properly.


Customer Support - 8/10

I found that the support at Mecca Bingo is pretty good. To be honest you will find a moderator in most of the bingo rooms, so there is little reason to go anywhere else for questions about the bingo. If your question isn’t urgent then I would suggest emailing Mecca Bingo, which I found was normally answered within the hour. For more pressing questions then try the live chat or call the free phone. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly on the whole and they should help you out pretty quickly.
