Rival Gaming Fuses New Concept to Create a Bingo-Themed Slot Game

May 30th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

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
  • Announcer
  • Squeak rubber doll
  • Bingo cards
  • The old lady
  • The old man
  • Star

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.

New Texas-themed Slot from Rival Gaming

April 8th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Rival Gaming recently released Gushers Gold, a Texas-themed slot game which went live March 30th, 2011. Gushers Gold is a name that refers to the amount of oil pumped from the ground across Texas. Due to the recent economy, oil is worth more than its weight in gold. The background in the game is set to the Texan desert while the symbols relate to the oil industry in addition to the vast wealth it generates. The symbols include:

  • Oil rig
  • Cigars
  • Luxury car
  • Map of Texas
  • Helmet
  • Wads of cash
  • Ownership deed
  • Trendy flask
  • Texan tycoon
  • Oil barrel
  • Tycoon’s girlfriend
  • Oil pump

The Texan tycoon icon is representative of the jackpot symbol thus delivering the highest payout in the game of 1,000 coins. This occurs when five or more tycoon’s appear on an active payline. The oil barrel is another special symbol that represents the wild icon which can be substituted for other symbols to make winning combinations. This symbol only appears in reels 1, 3 and 5. When it does appear, the character expands to all reels.

The tycoon’s girlfriend, wearing a tiara, grants the free spins round. To activate this bonus, players must hit three of these symbols anywhere on the reels which gives the player 3 free spins. When four symbols appear, 10 free spins are awarded and five symbols equates to 15 free spins. Payouts during this round are tripled.

Finally, the oil pump is the special symbol that triggers the bonus game. This occurs when three or more appear on any of the reels. The player is transported to an oil field where he must select one of the three oil rigs. Using the levers that appear, the player must then select from one of four depths to drill. The player must finally click to reveal his winnings. Depending on the result, the player can play the bonus game several times.

An additional feature in the game is random jackpot which is measured by the jackpot meter on the left side of the screen. After any spin, oil could flow into the meter. If the oil does not fill the meter, it will be dumped out. However, if it goes to the top, the player wins the jackpot.

With many extra games and features, Gushers Gold looks to be an exciting new addition to the Rival Gaming portfolio. To try the game, go to Ruby Royal online casino or Sloto’ Cash online casino.
