Mecca Bingo Review

Rating: 4.9/5

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.

Mecca Bingo

You can’t get much more of a household name as far as bingo is concerned than Mecca Bingo, with its 60 year history of running bricks and mortar bingo halls.  And the online version of this iconic bingo brand is every bit as special.

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 Rank’s own proprietary platform).  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.

  • Playtech casino slots including Age of the Gods, Jackpot Giant, DC Legends and Gladiator.
  • Red Tiger daily jackpots
  • Blueprint’s Jackpot King networked with other Rank sites
  • IGT Megajackpots
  • All the usual Virtue Fusion slots including Clover Rollover, Big Top Tombola, Cleopatra’s Chest, Bouncy Balls etc
  • Mega Moolah, Immortal Romance and other Microgaming classics
  • NetEnt slots including Starburst, Butterfly Staxx, Jumanji and Reel Rush 2
  • Dream Catcher, Crazy Time, Mega Ball and Monopoly Live by Evolution
  • SG classics such as Zeus, Raging Rhino and Spartacus Gladiator of Rome
  • Everything you could possibly want by Eyecon including lots of progressive jackpots
  • Online versions of games that are popular in Mecca clubs including Book of Ra Deluxe, Action Bank and Thai Flower
  • A host of other titles you wouldn’t normally expect to find alongside Virtue Fusion bingo – Foxin’ Wins, Vikings Go Berzerk, Extra Chilli, Leprechaun Song and many others

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 typically pay winnings in cash and although slot bonuses at Mecca do 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 Age of the Gods Bingo, Mecca offer a number of bingo games that are unique to them:

  • Emoji Bingo (50 ball multi stake)
  • Burst Bingo (50 ball multi stake)
  • X-Factor Bingo (90 ball with an extra feature game)
  • Best Odds Bingo aka BOB (maximum of 25 players allowed per game to improve the chance of winning)

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 regular rather than one offs.  Occasionally, though, they run amazing promotions with money-can’t-buy prizes such as celebrity makeovers, and live player participation on Mecca TV

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 is a past winner at the prestigious EGR Operator Awards 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.  For added useability and security they also have a mobile app, which is available for Apple and Android and includes fingerprint recognition so there’s no need to remember a password.

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 various 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!
