With the Summer Olympics taking place in London in 2012, one of the busiest UK bingo sites, Costa Bingo, is warming things up with their Slots Winter Olympics promotion. Members will be able to play online slots to earn points for their chance to win a share of £2,500 in cash prizes as well as get their name into a special prize draw in order to win some fantastic prizes and bonus cash.
In order for Costa Bingo members to earn points, they simply need to wager £1 on any instant game and they will get 1 point. But members who choose to play Sunny’s Favourites instant games, they will earn double the points for every £1 wagered, thus boosting their chances of climbing up the leaderboard. These games include Temple of Isis, Irish Luck, Sugar Train, Fluffy Favourites, Piggy Payout, Enchanted Prince and Shaman’s Dream.
There are two remaining Slots Olympic Races, one running for a 5 day period while the other one over a 10 day period. The former starts on Monday January 2nd and finished on Friday January 6th while the latter begins on Wednesday January 11th and concludes on Friday January 20th. The top 10 members to have collected the most points will get to share a number of cash prizes, with the 10 day race dishing out more cash than the 5 day slot race. An individual leaderboard will showcase the standings of the respective races so members can monitor their progress.
At the end of all 3 Olympic Races, the 3 members to have scored the best rankings across all races will get to share an extra £700 in cash. The Gold medal winner will get £300, the Silver medal winner will receive £250 and the Bronze medal winner will get £150. Furthermore, everyone who has accumulated 1,000 points or more, will have their name entered into a hat for a special prize draw, with a Blackberry Playbook, a New Kindle and 3 £50 in bonus cash up for grabs. The draw will take place on Monday January 23rd.
