Rival Gaming has developed a new concept of fusing two different gambling games into one; a bingo-themed online slot game. Although players are unable to actually play a competitive game of bingo, they will still be able to enjoy the atmosphere of a bingo hall in new slot game, Five Reel Bingo.
The introductory clip takes players through the experiences found at a bingo hall such as the casual chatter. The announcer then calls a number at which the clip shows an old man holding a bingo marker, anxiously awaiting the next number announcement. The announcer calls the next number prompting an elderly woman to stand up and yell “Bingo.”
The symbols on the reels in the slot game stem from the game of Bingo itself. These icons include:
- Bingo market
- Ball dispenser
- Squeak rubber doll
- Bingo cards
- The old lady
- The old man
The old lady from the introductory clip is representative of the jackpot symbol since she won. The highest paying jackpot in the game is 2,500 coins. The old man, also from the clip, acts as the scatter symbol. Three of these icons and the player is awarded five free spins, four and the player is given ten free spins and five will grant the player twenty free spins. Also, payouts during this round are tripled. The star is the wild symbol which only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5.
Five Reel Bingo also offers an unusual bonus game in which each reel is designated with a specific scatter symbol letter that spells BINGO. If the word BINGO appears across all five reels, the player can engage in a regular game of Bingo. In the bonus game version, numbers are called and marked off a standard bingo card. There are a variety of Bingo patterns, each with a different payout. The player will receive the payout of the pattern that initially forms.
All horizontal and vertical lines pay 3,000 coins while a diagonal line pays 5,000 coins, four corners equates to 7,000 coins and a horizontal/vertical combination equals 10,000 coins. The game is available for play at regular and accelerated speeds.
Five Reel Bingo is currently available at all Rival Gaming casinos like RubyRoyal and Sloto’ Cash. This game is an exciting and innovative take on the standard, popular game of Bingo. All aspects of the normal game are present to improve the experience.
