Mecca Bingo is a household name in the UK and their brick-and-mortar bingo halls have been a staple of major British cities since the 1960s. Over 80 different bingo halls up and down the nation employ over 10,000 people and serve millions of punters each year. This makes it one of the leading players in the British bingo market.
It is not just their physical bingo halls that are highly-regarded, though—Mecca Bingo has its own online bingo service that originally launched in 2003 and underwent a major rehaul in 2015.
Today, it is one of the best online bingo sites in the UK and serves just as many players as their physical brick-and-mortar locations.
Alongside Gala Bingo, it is the UK’s leading online bingo brand.
Mecca Bingo Games and Software
Using multiple software solutions—Bede Gaming, Playtech, Eyecon, Novomatic, Bally, IGT, and Greentube—Mecca Bingo provides an online bingo experience that is difficult to rival.
Let’s start with bingo rooms.
There are well over 24 (yes, two dozen!) different bingo rooms. This means that whatever time of day you log in, there is always going to be room for you to participate in a game.
Mecca Bingo has all the classics, too. 75, 80, and 90-ball bingo are the obvious inclusions as well as lots of different bingo variants that are interesting, unique, and exciting. Due to its huge size, Mecca Bingo has managed to strike up deals to offer exclusive bingo content tie-ins with popular TV shows such as X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent.
All these games are multi-stake, so you have a choice between five different price levels for each game you play.
“Burst Bingo” is another variant on the classic, too. This game does away with the classic bingo card and instead replaces it with animals holding balloons. When a ball gets drawn, if you match a number then one of the balloons bursts. If you get a full house in 16 or fewer draws, you are awarded with the Burst Big One jackpot.
Sure, this may seem unnecessary to some but it’s nice to have variation from the ordinary, especially if you play lots!Back to top ↑
Mecca Bingo's Community
As we have said before, bingo is not a game where you go solo. While you are, of course, playing your own card by yourself, you are playing alongside lots of different people in a non-competitive game. Naturally, this makes bingo very friendly, relaxed, and social.
Mecca Bingo make the gaming experience all the more memorable by the way they have created their chat rooms.
As you play and cross off numbers from your bingo cards, you will feel the buzz and excitement exuding from all your fellow players.
It’s not just fellow players who are there for a chat, though. Mecca Bingo’s game and chat hosts are experienced and encouraged to interact positively with all players both new and old. These people keep the chat flowing and are on hand to help if any unpleasant individuals try to put a damper on everybody’s fun.Back to top ↑
You Can Take Mecca Bingo with You
Most bingo sites have their own app nowadays, however, not all of them do a good job of making one. We are familiar with the frustrations associated with an app that is slow, outdated, and frequently crashes.
With Mecca Bingo, this simply doesn’t happen. Both their Android and iOS apps have been built to an exceptional standard. This means that you can take Mecca Bingo with you wherever you go.
What’s more, the chat rooms are fully functional on their app and are not stripped down to save on resources.Back to top ↑
Depositing and Withdrawing Money
The best way to deposit cash with Mecca Bingo is to use your credit or debit card. If you want, though, you can also use PayPal or PaySafeCard. As with most other bingo sites, the minimum deposit is £5.00, and it will enter your account immediately.
As for withdrawing your winnings, you can send them to any payment method you have previously used to make a deposit with (aside from PaySafeCard—these do not support withdrawals). All withdrawals are held for 24 hours (48 hours at the weekend) before being processed. After processing, they should arrive within three to five business days.Back to top ↑
