Mecca Bingo is a Virtue Fusion bingo site run by a grand old name in British bingo – play in a bingo hall, online or on a mobile. Newbies get 7 days of free bingo so you can try before you buy. There’s a strong community here with exclusive games such as the X-Factor tie-ins and Cashline, which is played in Mecca clubs. In June 2015 Mecca launched their redesigned website, which is fully responsive with all sections being equally accessible to PC, mobile and tablet and as of June 2016 they offer both versions of the Virtue Fusion platform on desktop, which means that their exclusive games Burst Bingo and Emoji Bingo (which started life as mobile only) can be played on the desktop from the HTML5 (new-look bingo) lobby. These games have now been joined by another exclusive, the playing card based bingo variant Royal 5s.
One thing that is not immediately obvious when you login but which sets Mecca apart from other Playtech/Virtue Fusion bingo sites is that the site management software – the back end – is not by Playtech but by Bede Gaming. This enables Mecca to offer many exclusive promotions that are unlike those at other Playtech/Virtue Fusion sites. Prize giveaways are a regular feature as are slots prize draws – and, again because of the different back end, the slots selection is different to other sites and includes many exclusives, such as the live wheel of fortune style game Dream Catcher.
Mecca also now offer the facility to make cash deposits to and withdrawals from an online bingo account at Mecca clubs.
From time to time Mecca Bingo also raises very substantial sums for the Carers Trust charity via the Rank Cares initiative; in 2014 the Rank Group as a whole (which includes Mecca bingo halls and the online and offline versions of Grosvenor casinos as well as the Mecca Bingo site) raised over half a million pounds for this worthy cause. They were also selected by a panel of expert judges to win the award for social responsibility at both the 2015 and the 2017 Whichbingo Awards.
The 2017 award for best customer service also went to Mecca Bingo and again, this award is judged by a panel of experts. The customer service department is entirely based in the UK which these days is something of a rarity.
