How to Play the New Star Raiders Slot

When we first heard that Pariplay were launching a slot based on the Star Raiders game, we knew we had to have a few spins. The classic Atari game was cemented in pop culture in the eighties and just about everyone loved playing this game. If you want to take this game for a spin then check out our fab guide first.

Wagering

This game is created to look like an old style arcade game and you can use the buttons under the reels to do so. It’s almost like feeding coins into one of these machines, which helps to make the game feel much more authentic. There are always 243 ways to win in this game, but you don’t need to spend a lot to give it a whirl.

A minimum bet of 20p a spin is available in this game and it won’t take you long before you’re ready to kick it up a notch. Use the auto play feature if you want this game to play for you, it will come in handy on a long gaming session!

Rules

The aim of this game is to match up three or more of any symbol to win. As there are 243 paylines, they just need to appear adjacent or diagonally from one another, so you don’t need to worry about where they are positioned. The game is easy to play and it’s mobile optimised too, so you can continue to get playing on the go.

Design

The design of this game really harks back to the classic age of the arcade game, which will bring a sense of nostalgia to players. You’ll feel like you’re playing on a cabinet game and the designers have done a lot to make this the case.

The symbols themselves are a mixture of poker symbols and spacecraft, each of which have different multipliers attached. If you open up the paytable then you’ll be able to see them in full.

Bonus Features

One of the best parts of this game are the bonus features that you can trigger, these are:

Free Spins – Watch out for the golden star symbol as you play this game, as three of these will allow you to play in the free spins round. This starts the battle mode too, so you’ll be playing against the computer for more spins.
Wilds – The UFO symbol appears in the game as the wild symbol but it gets even better in the bonus feature. They’ll be held in place and allowed to help you out for even longer!

If you’re looking for some amazing gameplay then be sure to play on the Star Raiders slot right here at Cheers Bingo, good luck!

Online Bingo Security Tips

The BBC recently reported figures from an official survey that looked into the effects of cybercrime. The report found that there were an estimated 3.6 million cases of fraud and over 2 million computer misuse offences in just one year. The report further highlighted that offences had risen 8% for the year and argued that fraud was now the most common crime in the UK. As a result, we thought we would come up with some tips and tricks for our bingo roomies on how they can stay safe playing online bingo!

General Device Security

This is super basic stuff and is all about the general security on your computer, mobile, or laptop. The firewall is arguably the most basic bit of security that you can activate and most devices will come with one built in so be sure to check that it is switched on. You would be amazed at how many players are unaware that their firewall has been turned off.

Password Choice

Your bingo account has access to real funds and if your password is compromised then your account can also be compromised. Of course, most players will have their own password protocol but in a general sense try not to make the password easy to guess. We know this sounds trivial but people’s passwords get hacked or guessed every day so it’s better to be safe than sorry. A combination of letters and numbers with some uppercase and some lowercase is always advised to give you the most robust password possible.

General Lobby Tips

As you are probably aware, Cheers Bingo has a lot of roomies and while the vast majority are just there to enjoy the game, you can never be too careful so we would not recommend using your real name as a username and we generally advise from giving it out in the chat although this is entirely up to yourself. Of course, never give out your address or phone number or even your date of birth!

Your Deposit Account

It can be tempting to make a large deposit and leave the funds in your bingo account for the sake of convenience. Before doing this make sure you have read our wagering requirements so that you understand how easily a big withdrawal can be made. Additionally, consider making deposits when you are physically about to play the game so that you do not need to keep money in your bingo account any longer than necessary.

Are You Secure?

These are just a number of things you can consider when staying safe online. We would recommend reviewing your account security and using this article as a checklist. Also, if you have any other ideas for bingo security then leave us a message on Facebook or Twitter and we will add them to this list. Have fun and stay safe!

Our Favourite Christmas Movies

We’re getting in the festive spirit with fun slots and Christmassy bingo games, but we can’t wait to watch out top Christmas movies. Pop these on the telly and settle down with your favourite games to make 2017 a Christmas to remember!

Elf

Will Ferrell’s Christmas movie Elf has to be on the list of top movies of all time. The all-star cast and hilarious comedy stylings mean that we can watch this movie over and over again. The tale follows the Christmas Elf Buddy, as he goes on a journey of self-discovery to find his dad in New York.

If you love this Christmas classic then you’ll love playing it while in our Snug online bingo room. Get cosy with your fellow roomies and get chatting about your top movies, as this is a hosted room that’s filled with fun.

It’s a Wonderful Life

Speaking of classic Christmas films, It’s a Wonderful Life gets brought out every festive season. Whether you have the classic video or an up to date Blu Ray, there’s nothing better than settling in to watch this movie. Most of us will probably know all of the words off by heart at this stage!

With this movie, we’d recommend a Christmas themed slot like Very Merry Christmas. As the story unfolds you could be winning yourself a few Christmas presents with this rewarding slot game.

Die Hard

The eternal question of ‘is Die Hard a Christmas film’ is answered as soon as you fire up this movie. Hans Gruber’s face just gets us in the festive spirit and the film has more twists and turns than you can imagine. The best part about this movie has to be watching it with someone that’s never seen it before and watching their expression.

It’s the perfect movie to get watching while you wait for the big jackpot games to begin. Just watching it any time of year brings back memories of being too full for pudding!

The Nightmare Before Christmas

This little musical number comes on every year and we can’t help but sing along to it every time. The story follows the King of Halloween as he takes on a more festive role. Be prepared to have these songs stuck in your head for days after you watch it!

If you’re a big Tim Burton fan then this might just start you off watching the entire collection all over again. This is definitely one to watch while playing bingo, you can even share the lyrics with other roomies as you all get in the festive mood.

There we have it, our complete guide to the movies we love to go along with the games we most enjoy, what’s your perfect combination?

Join us in our New Speed Bingo Room

Here at Cheers, we always want our players to have the best online bingo experience possible which is why we offer a range of games to suit every type of player. Speed Bingo is a lot of fun and can really be a great way to win some big jackpots in no time at all!

It is fast and furious so you need to have your wits about you to succeed at this game. Not to worry, though, as we have all the details on how and where to play below.

When and Where?

Our latest Speed Bingo game is playing out in our Glitz & Glam bingo room between 8pm and 9pm every single day. This means more bingo, more excitement and more prizes Ticket prices will be priced between just 2p and 5p so you really don’t have any excuses not to get involved!

The game itself is called Power Hour so be sure to look out for it as soon as you enter the Glitz & Glam room. If you have never played speed bingo before then fear not as we have all the details on how to play below.

What is Speed Bingo?

Speed Bingo can take many forms and guises and some players may recognise it under the name 30 ball bingo on other sites. The structure of the game involves a fast pace with the aim of creating a lot of excitement. The basic premise is to take the standard game and speed it up so that each game lasts around 30 seconds. Things happen extremely quickly so players need to be on their toes to keep up.

How to Play Speed Bingo

The rules are pretty straightforward and it is similar to 75 ball bingo but this game only uses 30 numbers with a smaller bingo card. As we mentioned it progresses much faster than a traditional bingo game. Speed cards consist of a 3×3 grid and there are 9 numbers as a result. Each column will have a random number with 1-10 in the 1st, 11-20 in the 2nd and 21-30 in the 3rd. Quite simply, the first player to fill the card wins the game!

Additionally, games are usually played for the full house which means that all numbers must be called. Some games do take this further and allow for wins with just a single filled line resulting in a win and with just three numbers to watch out for on some games, it can become normal for players to buy multiple cards per game.

Why is Speed Bingo Special?

Not all players have the time to play bingo and Speed Bingo offers a fantastic alternative. Games do not take long at all so those with restricted playing time can get in on the action and still win big. Additionally, speed bingo cards can be some of the most affordable on the web and it is not uncommon for tickets to cost 1-2p.

So what are you waiting for? Join us in the Glitz and Glam room for some speedy fun.
