If you like online bingo and are also quite fond of slot games too then Video Bingo is the perfect type of game for you. This hybrid between slots and bingo games is available exclusively to sites on the 15 Network, meaning that Cheers Bingo is one of the only places you can experience these fantastic innovative new games!
What is Video Bingo?
Video Bingo is essentially a mixture between our favourite online bingo and slot side games. Like bingo, you can choose cards, but unlike bingo you can play at a time to suit you and a wager to suit you too. Instead of being stuck to the confines of set ticket prices, you can alter your wager to be from as little as 1p per card up to 30p per card.
How the games work is that you choose between 1 and 4 bingo cards to play with, then decide how much you want to wager on each. Cards are usually selected by clicking on them, whilst wagers can be changed in the same way as most slot games – by pressing up or down buttons underneath the game board.
Once you’ve set your overall bet, hit Play to release the bingo balls. These are released at the same time, rather than individually like regular bingo, and will automatically determine what wins you get.
Why Play Video Bingo?
One of the main benefits of Video Bingo over regular bingo online is that you have the freedom to choose when you want to start a game. You don’t have to wait around until a specific time to play a jackpot game, or have to keep to the confines with bingo room hours – you simply log in and load up whenever you like, as with any other slot game!
As it’s a mixture between slots and bingo, you’ll find there are more ways to win than in your average online bingo game too. You’ll still get a payout for getting a full house bingo which covers all your balls, but there are loads of other patterns you can win on too, much like the different pay lines you get on regular slots.
There are also quite a few great games to try out too, each with their own theme. Try out Ali Baba Bingo deep in an Eastern cave, or even play bingo in space!
For keen slot players there aren’t really any disadvantages, however regular online bingo players may have to take some time to get used to the solo playing experience. As it’s a slot style game you can play when you like, it’s just you v the game, so there’s no real competition. This also means there’s no chat facility, which can sometimes be one of the most fun and social things about bingo games. However if you’re not that bothered by chat hosts or playing with fewer bingo cards than you’re used to, this range of games is definitely something you’re going to love.
