But before you get stuck into this new room – we’re going to give you a quick rundown on all things bingo.
Bingo is not only a lot of fun it’s also incredibly easy to learn how to play. How it works is that you listen to the person calling out the numbers (usually with some cheeky bingo calls!), and if you have that number, you mark them off on your card. Simple, right?
There are different versions of bingo games, including 90-ball and 75-ball in a variety of epic themes. Love Britain’s Got Talent? There’s a room for that! Fancy a trip to the Emerald Isle? Rainbow Riches has your name on it!
But okay, we’ll get to the part you really want to know – how you can win! There’s a number of ways to score a prize depending on the type of game. Most commonly is having five numbers marked off in a row (known as one line), whether horizontal, vertical or diagonal. Marked off another row? That’s two lines! Or you could cover up your whole card for a full house win. You could also cash in if the game has a special prize for marking off the numbers in a particular pattern. Plus, while you’re waiting for your numbers to be called, you can also play our mini-games to earn extra prizes!
