Mecca Bingo is a Playtech / Virtue Fusion bingo site run by a grand old name in British bingo and is unlike other Virtue Fusion sites in that it has a much bigger and better selection of slots including Net Ent classics like Starburst and Butterfly Staxx. It has more than 25 bingo rooms, some networked with other Virtue Fusion bingo sites and some exclusive to Mecca.
One thing that is not immediately obvious when you login but which sets Mecca Bingo apart from most other Playtech/Virtue Fusion bingo sites is that the site management software – the back end – is not by Playtech (it’s by Rank subsidiary Stride). 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 much bigger and better than at other sites.
Almost every week at Mecca, there’s at least one slot promotion running (sometimes more than one), giving players the opportunity to collect a bonus or free spins by depositing and playing selected slot games. The free spins pay out in cash with no wagering requirements and although slot bonuses at Mecca carry a wagering requirement, it is usually ridiculously low compared to slot wagering requirements elsewhere.
So much for the slots, but what about the bingo? As well as the standard Playtech bingo variants such as Rainbow Riches Bingo, Deal or No Deal Bingo and Housey Bingo, Mecca offer a number of bingo games that are unique to them:
The exclusive bingo content doesn’t stop there though. There’s 4 hours of 90 ball session bingo a day with a buy in price of £5 or £10, and there’s several Mecca only 75 and 90 ball rooms alongside the Virtue Fusion network rooms. The Mecca exclusive rooms are certainly lively, with hosted chat and some pretty worthwhile prizes including Mecca Premiere Jackpots ( a suite of 5 jackpots, three of which drop daily and two of which drop monthly) and Mecca Links games every hour with prizes of up to £2000 across the 5 Mecca 90 ball rooms.
The bingo lobby has a number of different tabs so it’s easy to find the type of game you like and in a nice touch, Mecca add ribbons to rooms with promotions coming up so you don’t have to keep checking the promotions page to find out what is going on. As at all Virtue Fusion sites, tickets can be bought up to a week in advance so you can play any bingo game you like even if you can’t be online.
Mecca have a number of exclusive bingo promotions but most of them are recurring; for example, on Winning Wheel Wednesday there’s a spin the wheel feature game after every Winning Wheel Wednesday bingo game, with a community payout benefiting every players with 6 or more tickets to the game.
Underpinning all of this is the Mecca Promise, a set of guarantees to players about fair treatment, safety and security. For instance, the customer service team is UK based and available 24/7 apart from on Christmas Day (which is no doubt part of the reason why Mecca Bingo have won multiple bingo industry awards for customer service). They can be contacted via online chat, email, 0800 phone number or post.
Mecca’s mobile bingo product was a winner at the prestigious EGR Operator Awards in 2019 and it’s easy to see why – they were one of the first online bingo sites to go fully responsive meaning that you get a full rather than a cut down service when you visit the site from a mobile phone browser, but for added useability and security they also have a mobile app which is available for Apple and Android.
Because they offer bingo both on and offline, Mecca offer the facility to make cash deposits and withdrawals of up to £100 a day to/from an online bingo account at Mecca clubs, and it’s also possible to transfer funds between an online Mecca Bingo account and a Mecca Max account (for playing bingo in a Mecca club using a Max handheld electronic bingo device), so you can use club winnings to buy tickets for online games.
From time to time Mecca Bingo 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 bingo industry awards.
All in all, Mecca Bingo offers one of the very best combinations of bingo and slots on the UK market, all parcelled up with a strong community and top drawer customer service. No wonder they are so popular with players!
