Ignite Bingo Sites
Ignite are the operators behind Costa Bingo and sister sites, which are well known for their theming and promotions. A network wide loyalty scheme allows benefits to be transferred between sites and the jackpot bingo games are also networked allowing larger prizes to be on offer.
Ignite Bingo Sites
Ignite bingo sites have some of the very best promotions in the business. There’s chat tourneys, prize draws, free and penny games with excellent prizes and most months, several of the sites have at least one big promotion with a special prize game to win a holiday or something of similar value. There used to be various ways to collect free cards to these games but this has all now been streamlined and they go on sale in the bingo lobby in the normal way.
The Ignite bingo sites have a cross-site loyalty scheme called the Diamond Club. Diamonds from any site can be used to collect a bonus at any other site as long as you have a funded account there.
Ignite sites run on the Dragonfish platform but the chat works more like Virtue Fusion with each site having its own chat room even where the games are networked (some are, some are not). This, together with the exclusive promotions and the theming going deeper than just the home page, means that each site very much has its own identity.
Another important plus point about the Ignite sites is that they have regular 75 and 90 ball rooms where the maximum card purchase is a relatively low 24 cards, making maxing out less expensive than elsewhere.
The Ignite free bingo rooms (some of which are open to all) and jackpot games are networked. The network has the following games every day:
- £50 fixed jackpot 90 ball game with 1p tickets, 3 times a day
- £50 fixed jackpot 75 ball game, 5p card price – every 2 hours 9am – 11pm
- £100 fixed jackpot 90 ball game, 10p card price – every 2 hours 10am – midnight
- 888 massively networked 90 ball room from 7pm with £1000 fixed jackpot for the first game
Ignite have a long standing flagship promotion – a network sliding jackpot game at 10pm every Friday. Players can claim up to 6 cards for this on the day of the game only, but to be allowed into the bingo room they need to have made a deposit in the last 7 days.
As sliding jackpots go it is certainly one of the better ones as the £10,000 cash headline prize does not start to slide until the ball count gets higher than 46 and for the prize to go all the way down to the baseline guaranteed £1000, bingo would have to be in a very slow 70 calls. The game typically has 25,000 + cards in play so it is extremely unlikely that it would last that long. It also has extra prizes; 1TG players share £1000 bonus and 2TG players share £2000 bonus.
Some Ignite sites have a second network sliding jackpot game on Sunday nights (with the same entry conditions as the Friday game) but this is a much poorer proposition; the ball count required to win the £5000 jackpot is ludicrously low at 29 calls, the baseline £500 is for bingo in 51 or more calls (whereas the Friday prize for 51 calls is £7000) and there’s nothing for 1TG or 2TG. Since the cards are free it is still worth claiming them any week you have made the necessary deposit at a participating site .
