Pirate Cove Bingo Review
|In August 2015 we visited Facebook to check Pirate Cove Bingo but could not find the app on the social media site or on any of the app stores. The review below is for information purposes only.|
Pirate Cove Bingo is a Facebook bingo app that currently has around 1,000 monthly active users. We did find that the game took quite a while to load in comparison to other applications of this kind and some might feel that this is enough to make them head elsewhere. However, we stuck with it and were very glad that we did as Pirate Cove Bingo is certainly worth the wait and great fun once you get started.
Once you load Pirate Cove Bingo you will be on the Home Deck and you will find a series of tabs across the top. Clicking on the ‘about’ tab will introduce you to the team behind this Facebook bingo app and what will soon be coming your way on Pirate Cove Bingo. Clicking on the help button will tell you everything that you need to know and how to get started and play your first game at Pirate Cove Bingo.
Apart from the initial loading, this Facebook bingo app ran smoothly with no obvious problems with stalling or hanging.
Pirate Cove Bingo Review – Game Objective and Features
Object of the Game
Click play and you are ready embark on your first Pirate Cove Bingo game. If a game is already in play when you enter, we suggest you wait for this to end as catching up is always difficult. You will then be greeted with a short ad from this Facebook bingo apps sponsors. Chat is available in the room and the chat window will be on the left of your Pirate Cove Bingo window. At the top right will be the bingo call board and just below this will be the details of the pattern you need to cover to get bingo. However, there are only 40 numbers called in each game at Pirate Cove Bingo, so if you don’t get bingo within those 40 calls then you are not a winner.
Bingo cards are free at Pirate Cove Bingo and you simply have to add them to play. You will begin in The Tale Begins room which is a free white card room. You will see to the left of the window that you have a choice of a Free White Card or Gold Cards with this Facebook bingo app. Initially use the free white card, as the Gold Cards are a special feature and you will find further details on this later in the Facebook bingo app review.
You will need to mark your own numbers at Pirate Cove Bingo and also make a claim by clicking the ‘bingo’ button below your winning card if you should get bingo. There is no need to mark off numbers that are not needed to cover the required pattern but be careful that you mark your bingo tickets correctly and make a valid claim. If you make a false claim, you card will go dark and you will not be able to carry on with the game for 30 seconds. If you accidently click mark an incorrect number on your bingo card, you can unmark it by clicking on the number again.
The Gold Cards are just one of the special features that are available at this Facebook bingo app. You are awarded five of these every day at Pirate Cove Bingo to use whenever you please and every valid bingo claim on one of these cards will enter you into a sweepstake to win a real cash prize. Details of the sweepstake can be found in the Help Centre.
You also have a series of buttons to the top right of your window which allow you turn the sound on and off and chance the graphics quality of the game.
There are no tournaments as such available at this Facebook bingo app, but keep checking the ‘about’ page as any changes will be issued here.
There is no virtual currency at Pirate Cove Bingo and the games are free to place, but each bingo that you get will be added to your bingo meter at the top left so you are able to compete with your Facebook friends to see who can call bingo the most.
