The London Marathon takes place on Sunday April 22nd and lasts 26 excruciating miles, but now you can stay at home, put your feet up, and take part in a marathon that requires little effort from your end. One of the UK’s most prolific bingo sites, Costa Bingo, is hosting their own Costa Marathon, allowing their players to play online bingo and instant games as they would normally do and win a share of the £2,600 cash pot. One lucky player will also get to win the brand new Kindle Touch 3G.
The Costa Bingo marathon runs from April 10th until April 22nd and players can make sure they finish that crossing line in winning fashion by claiming as many points as they possibly can. Players will get 10 points for every one pound they stake on bingo play, they will get another 10 points for every pound they stake on instant game play, they will get 1,000 points every time they call bingo on the number 26 and they will get another 1,000 points when they call bingo on the Trainer pattern. Players can monitor their progress by checking out the leaderboard.
After the end of the marathon, the top 26 players that will have accumulated the most points will get to share the £2,600 cash pot. The first ten players will win real cash prizes, ranging from £350 for the winner and going down to £75 for the player that finishes in 10th place. After that, all the players from 11th place all the way down to 26th place will each win £26 in bonus cash for their efforts.
But that’s not all, Costa Bingo will give the chance to all their players that have build up over 2,600 points, the chance to win the e-book gadget that allows you to download books and magazines thanks to its free 3G wireless function and has a battery that will last for two months. The prize draw to determine the winner of the Kindle Touch 3G will take place on Monday April 23rd.
