Bingo and casino games are usually considered as two entirely different breeds. Bingo leans more towards the ‘lottery’ style of betting with a little more interactivity, in that, you get to choose your numbers. On the other hand, casino games tend to be balanced a little more squarely between luck and skill. Some examples of the latter are slot machines, jackpots, card games, and other table games such as roulette.
It naturally follows that some online platforms tend to opt for a multidisciplinary approach to things by incorporating both bingo and casino games on their site. This is a smart approach considering that there are some players, who, rather than specialise, like to mix things up. Maybe while placing a few bets on bingo, they might want to test their skills at poker or blackjack, and then top it all off with a few interactive spins on their favourite video slots.
In light of this, we’ve decided to bring to you, what we believe, are 4 of the best bingo platforms that also stock up on NetEnt games for fans of our favourite provider. So, read on and find out which is best for you.
Mainstage Bingo is run by Caddell Limited N.V. under a license issued by the UK Gambling Commission. They also manage another two sites. This is already telling of their trustworthiness and experience in the industry.
While this site is predominantly a bingo site, there is no lack of casino games or related features. NetEnt fans will be pleased to hear that this one features almost all NetEnt RNG (Random Number Generated) games, all NetEnt local jackpots, a good number of pooled NetEnt Jackpots, as well as NetEnt Touch. Not to mention live casino games, sports betting, scratch cards, and more. Everything is tucked away under specific categories making searching a breeze.
If you’re starting off at this site for the first time, catch an earful of what the welcome bonus is about:
- No deposit (sign up) – €5
- 1st deposit – 150% up to €300
Moving onto WishBingo, things are surely done differently here in terms of presentation. The site is splashed with bright shades of purple and the background seems inspired by a cartoon-version of Aladdin and Arabian Nights, giving it a fun and playful feeling. This one also operates under an UK-issued license, however the company running it is a subsidiary of 888 Holdings, which, to seasoned fans, needs very little introduction.
Here, casino games fall under the categories slots, progressive slots, mini games, scratch cards, and table games. At this time, the selection of NetEnt games available is still somewhat limited. That being said, the related welcome bonus is quite promising:
- No deposit – €10
- 1st deposit – 250% up to €50
- 2nd deposit – 150% up to €150
- 3rd deposit – 100% up to €100
Costa Bingo derives its site theme from the idea of fun under a warm sun on the beach. The name itself – Costa – is the Italian/Spanish reading for beach/coast. This platform has a license from the European Gambling Commission (Gibraltar), which is a heartening feature as it offers a stronger sense of security. One great feature is that you can choose a site optimised for either your pc or your tablet, and the layout changes somewhat to accommodate that. Games-wise, there are just some NetEnt ones, which we hope to see increase in the future.
Costa Bingo’s sunny welcome bonus is as follows:
- No deposit (sign up) – €5
- 1st deposit – 500% up to €50
Bingo.Com sounds quite straightforward as a name, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not just the name. The whole site is designed in a way to make navigation intuitive and fun. There’s no clutter here and everything is stylish.
Security and trustworthiness are not issues with this one as it’s operated by the powerhouse Unibet under a Malta Gambling Authority License (EU).
While this one specialises in bingo, tournaments, and lotteries, there is no shortage of NetEnt games. Besides having almost all NetEnt local jackpots and some pooled ones, they actually have an exclusive game called simply ‘Dallas’.
Bingo.Com welcomes new members with the following bonus:
- 1st deposit: 200% up to €20
