Mecca Bingo‘s Dream Come True mega promotion is back for Autumn 2021, running until 26th September. Here’s what to expect from what they are calling its “fourth, fabulous season”! At heart, it’s a prize draw promotion with draws taking place on 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th September, but there is so very much more to it than just that!
- Mecca Dream Wheel
- Win Prizes Live On Mecca TV
- Mecca Dream Come True Prizes
- £10,000 Fortune Games
- 500,000 Free Spins Dream Giveaway
- Enhanced Prize Money
Mecca Dream Wheel
The Mecca Dream Wheel is a daily bonus game, available until 26th September, that comes in two flavours. The regular Dream Wheel can be spun by anyone with an account at Mecca and the Premium Wheel can be spun by players who deposited and played £10 the previous day.
The Premium Wheel offers a better chance of winning (96% compared to the regular Wheel’s 89%) as well as bigger prizes (the top cash prize is £250 compared to the regular Wheel’s £100).
Apart from cash, the other prizes that can be won on both wheels are free spins, games bonus and prize draw entries. The free spins and games bonus both have a 7 day expiry and come with no further wagering requirements – anything you win from them is withdrawable cash.
The prize draw entries require a bit of further explanation as they don’t work quite as you’d expect:
- They are cumulative for the duration of the promotion, so valid for all remaining weekly draws not just the next one.
- The draw itself is a two stage process. First, all the entries that have been accumulated up until Thursday midnight go into a computerised draw. 3000 entries are selected at random to go into that week’s Mecca Dream Stream Live Prize Draw tombola. The live draw takes place on the Friday evening.
Win Prizes Live On Mecca TV
Mecca TV is an integral part of Dream Come True. It runs every weekday evening, streamed to the Main Event bingo room and on the Mecca website and there’s a different show every evening.
Mecca TV features many opportunities for players to win cash prizes. If you’d like to take part you will need to find out what the code of the day is (easy – it’s announced by the presenter multiple times during the show) and enter it in the bingo lobby before 9.45pm. If you’re chosen, they will ring you on your mobile (so make sure your phone is switched on and the correct number is in your account details).
The Mecca TV schedule is as follows:
- Monday, 8.30pm – 10pm: Celebrity Soap Box. This is a head to head quiz on soap operas between a pair of specially invited Mecca players with a dream prize up for grabs. Each player will have assistance from a Studio M celebrity. During the show, chat games with cash prizes will run in the Main Event chat room.
- Tuesday, 8.30pm – 10pm: The Watchlist Quiz. Another celebrity assisted head to head quiz for a dream prize between two Mecca players; this time, the topic is films and TV (presumably not including soaps!)
- Wednesday, 8.30pm – 10pm: Under The Spotlight. A chat show featuring a different celebrity guest each week.
- Thursday, 8.30pm – 10pm: Mecca Dreamers. Interviews with winners and highlights of Mecca Makeovers and Mecca Me Overs, plus surprise cash prizes.
- Friday, 9pm – 10.30pm: Mecca Dream Stream Live From Studio M. The Mecca Dream Stream Live Prize Draw takes place and the week’s 12 big winners are announced.
Mecca Dream Come True Prizes
- Mecca Makeover – a house makeover of up to 3 bedrooms and/or living rooms in your house by Claire Sweeney and her design team, documented by a TV crew.
- Mecca Me Over – a celebrity makeover including hair, make up, a fashion shoot, an outfit to keep and overnight stay in London for two. The day will be filmed complete with before and after shots.
- Postcode Street Party – A fabulous street party with food, drink, entertainment and DJ for up to 20 households on the same postcode as the winner, again with a film crew present
- Holiday – a £1000 holiday voucher for UK or international travel

£10,000 Fortune Games
The £10,000 Fortune Game plays at 21.12 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in Main Event and several other Mecca bingo rooms, and is part of the Mecca Fortune hour from 9pm until 10pm. The other 10 games which take place during the hour each have a guaranteed prize fund of £1000; most have a ticket price of 10p but there’s a couple priced at just 1p and one free game. The main attraction, though, is the Fortune Game itself. Tickets are priced at 25p and as you’d expect, it has a prize fund of £10K including a £2000 1TG sharepot.
The Fortune Game is being promoted under the Dream Come True banner and will certainly enhance the Dream Stream on Fridays, but it won’t stop when the rest of Dream Come True comes to an end; it’s running until further notice.
There’s a couple of other interesting things about the Fortune Game. One is that Mecca Retail Club players can join in via electronic Mecca Max boards. The other is the £20,000 jackpot; to start with, it was set to drop if full house is won in 37 calls or fewer but that number will be going up by one each week until it is won.
500,000 Free Spins Dream Giveaway
This is a completely separate and much more straightforward weekly draw which is running under the Dream Come True banner. Opt in and collect one entry for each £10 of play on slots, or two entries for £10 of play on the week’s featured slots. The week runs from 1am on Mondays and all prizes are 10 – 500 free spins on Jackpot King slots, with a 7 day expiry and winnings paid in cash.
Enhanced Prize Money
No promotion of this nature would be complete without beefing up the amounts that players can win in the actual bingo games, and Dream Come True does not disappoint. To tie in with the Mecca TV shows, there’s a guaranteed £10,000 of prizes to be won every evening, Monday to Thursday between 7pm and 11pm and on Fridays it’s a whopping £40,000 (including the £10K Fortune Game).
All in all, the 2021 season of Dream Come True is yet another winner from Mecca Bingo! Enjoy!
