With a name like Mainstage Bingo, you would expect the site to be full of bingo games! Bizarrely this is not the case, as they stopped operating bingo games in 2017. Instead, what you will find is a plethora of casino games. Cleary, with no bingo on offer, bingo fans will want to look elsewhere, but is it worth signing up for the casino games alone? Read our review below to find out…

|100% bonus worth up to £100 + 100 bonus spins.

New players on this site will be very happy to hear that not only will they be rewarded on their first deposit but also their second and third! This is the sort of promotions we used to see on most bingo sites many years ago until the taxes incurred by the sites changed and they removed these. Mainstage Bingo is going against the trend and they continue to offer this trio of bonuses.
Once you have signed up and are making your first deposit you will receive a 100% match bonus worth up to £100. The minimum amount you will require to deposit in order to qualify for this is £10. As such, deposit £10 and get £10 free credited to your account instantly. In addition to this, 100 free spins for the excellent Starburst game will be credited to your account at a rate of 20 bonus spins per day over 5 days. Terms and conditions apply.
When we landed on the site we expected to find an array of bingo games to keep us busy. Rather surprisingly we quickly realised there was no bingo on offer whatsoever! This was disappointing to see, but we were however quite impressed with the wide range of casino games that were on offer which we cover in more detail below.
In terms of the design, the theme once again is misleading with numerous bingo balls that are dotted around and really could do with being updated. Signing up was a quick process, and we were pleased with the range of payment options that were available. This not only includes your standard debit cards and PayPal but you can also add funds with various other e-wallets such as Trustly, Paysafecard, Skrill and Neteller.
Bonuses and Promotions
Promotions are subject to change, visit the official website to verify accuracy:
- Sensational Sundays – Every Sunday, players will receive a 50% bonus on their first deposit up to £25 in bonus cash. There is no bonus code required to receive this and the free money will be credited instantly.
- Loyalty Points – All players will be granted 500 loyalty points on their first deposit. After that, you will earn a measly 0.25 – 2 points for every £10 that you wager on the casino games. If you manage to make it to 1000 Loyalty Points you can convert it into £5 bonus money.
Bingo and Slot Games
Mainstage Bingo stopped running bingo games in 2017 and instead has focused its efforts on casino titles. The choice of casino games is excellent and includes the likes of Casino War, Baccarat, Texas Hedge’Em, Mississippi Stud Poker, Fortune Pai Gow Poker, Casino Hold’Em, Three Card Hold’Em and Blackjack to name just a few. Many of these games also have live versions where you can play and interact with a real-life dealer via video link.
Slots fans will also be happy as there are lots of popular titles to choose from such as Rainbow Riches Pots of Gold, Fishin Frenzy, Raging Rhino and Reel King Mega. In addition, you will be able to check out a number of scratch games if you are looking for an instant win.
There is no downloadable mobile app available for Mainstage Bingo. Instead, if you wish to play on your phone or tablet you will need to visit the site using your mobile browser. From there you can log in using your usual details (or register if you are new) and enjoy most of the games just as would on a PC.
The complete lack of any bingo games really let this site down from the get-go, and the poor loyalty program, welcome bonus and lack of promotions are also disappointing. The only real redeeming factor is their casino offering which features a number of games that are uncommon elsewhere, plus their live casino is better than you will find on most other bingo sites. If you are a big fan of table games this site could be worth a look, but if we are being honest you would be far better signing up elsewhere.
