Click on any of our Play Now buttons to start playing fun Costa Bingo. You'll be directed to the lobby area where you'll find a wide variety of games to choose from including FREE bingo, 5p bingo, 10p bingo, guaranteed jackpots and instant games.
Once you arrive in the lobby area you will be presented with a whole host of great games to choose from. Simply click the type of game you would like to play from the tabs presented across. Once you have made your choice, all you have to choose is which bingo type you would prefer, either 90 ball or 75 ball bingo.
Each ticket will show the price of the card, ball type, the time when the next game is about to begin, how many players are in the room and whether the room is chat hosted or not.
24 randomly generated bingo cards will be issued to you, they will be displayed on the screen in batches of six cards at a time. To scroll through all of the 24 cards, use the left and right arrow buttons at the top left of the card display area.
The current batch will be shown in the navigation panel on the left of the screen, for example, 'cards 7-12 of 24'. To select or deselect a card, simply click anywhere on the card. The number of cards that you have selected will also be displayed on the navigation panel.
If you want to change the cards issued to you, simply click the 'GET NEW CARDS' button located at the top of the card display area. This will provide you with a set of 24 new randomly generated unselected cards.
You can also autoselect cards, in batches of 6,12,18,24 or the maximum number of cards, this saves you clicking and scrolling through individual cards.
Once you are happy with your selected cards, click on the 'BUY SELECTED CARDS' button situated on the navigation panel on the left of the screen. Subject to funds, this will complete your card purchase. Please note that card purchases are non-refundable and all sales are final. The navigation panel will also display the number of purchased cards you have for the upcoming game.
Each purchased card will display a number at the bottom of the card, for example, 122235761. This number is a reference for both yourself and our customer services team.
You have 10 seconds prior to the start of next game to purchase bingo cards for that game.
For some of our jackpot games you have the opportunity to pre-buy your cards, simply click on the room and follow the above to purchase your cards.
At the top of the screen you will find the number of players, jackpot and time remaining before the game begins. The current game name and pattern (if 75 ball Bingo game) are also displayed.
The screen will announce that a game is about to begin. The game screen will display the cards you have purchased in batches of 6 (assuming more than 6 cards have been purchased). Scroll between cards by clicking the left and right arrow buttons at the top of the card area. The current batch of cards is also displayed as, for example, 'cards 1-6 of 9'.
The top of the screen shows how many people are playing and the current jackpot of the game. You can toggle the "Show from 3tg" (three numbers to go before your card has bingo) by clicking the 'OPTIONS' menu at the top right of the card display area and selecting the 'In Game' option. After being selected, all cards with 3, 2 or 1 number to go will be indicated.
In order to toggle the Autodaub, simply click on 'In Game' in the 'OPTIONS' menu and then select 'Autodaub'. When it's on, the game automatically marks or "daubs" your card every time your numbers are called out. When this button is off, your card numbers are not automatically daubed, so you can mark them manually by clicking the number on the card.
Called numbers are marked in blue if they form part of the required Bingo pattern for the current game played. Bear in mind that whether you daub the numbers or not, and how you daub them has no effect on the game outcome. IF YOU HAVE A WINNING BINGO CARD YOU WILL WIN!
When the game starts, a slight pause will occur before the balls are called out. After being randomly drawn, the balls are shown at the top left of the screen, accompanied by a speaking voice announcing the numbers. Each ball called is displayed on the bingo board, and the last 5 calls are displayed to the left.
At the end of the game, "BINGO!" will be announced and the winning alias(es) will be presented. When you win, your winnings will automatically be added to your account. The game will then automatically return to the next game screen after a short time, or after you click "OK".
A couple of other points worth mentioning - you can alternate between having the sound on and off. Simply click on the sound icon in the top right hand section of the screen.
If you need any assistance during the game, click on '?' in the top right hand section of the screen. Once you have finished playing bingo then simply click 'x' in the top right hand section of the screen.
