Bingolot is a true online multiplayer bingo game. It allows virtually indefinite number of players to play the game at a same time. Together in same environment, or spread over in different virtual rooms in parallel. There's a great variety of rooms, offering different ticket price: € 0.05, -, € 0.10, -, € 0.25, - and up to € 0.50, - per card. Keep in mind, you can even play for free and yet win real money.
Rooms have limitations on player quantity, subject to ticket price. This is the way we build an environment for entertainment and not for high-stake gambling. Each player can acquire up to ten cards per round, but there are rooms with different limitations as well.
Basically, players buy cards with numbers on them in a 5 x 5 grid corresponding to the five letters in the word B-I-N-G-O. Numbers such as B-2 or 0-68 are then drawn at random (out of a possible 75) until one player completes a 'Bingo' pattern, such as a line with five numbers in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal row on one of their cards and wins the prize. There are many possible patterns to play for.
A bingo card contains 24 numbered spaces and one free space (blank), with which you play Bingo. The numbers are assigned at random on each card and are arranged in five columns of five numbers each by five rows (5 x 5 = 25 in total including the blank square).
The numbers in the B column are between 1 and 15, in the I column between 16 and 30, in the N column (containing four numbers and the free space) between 31 and 45, in the G column between 46 and 60, and in the O column between 61 and 75.
Players have hundreds of thousands of unique (unduplicated) cards to choose from. It is possible, however, that several cards win at a same time. This may happen both when a pattern or a full card wins. A prize amount is always divided by the number of winning cards and awarded in proportion to winning players. A player with two winning tickets gets twice more than a player who owns a single winning ticket at a same time.
Besides a pot for a full row or a pattern and a pot for a full card, there's also a Bonus Pot. This pot is raffled off in special Bonus rounds, announced occasionally when a certain limit of sold cards is reached in the room. It's like a piggy bank, thus depending solely on players when it's going to happen. The pot is made up during a Bonus round, yet increased by € 17.50 for bingo and € 7.50 for pattern. A Bonus Round is announced at the start of ticket sales. During such rounds, the sales stage is extended in time, though ticket price remains the same as during normal rounds. Once a Bonus Round started in a particular room, it gets closed for new players. This is done to ensure fair chances for all players and not to those who looks only to play Bonus Rounds.
Real money play
Playing for money means you can buy cards and win real money if you have winning ticket(s). Most of the rooms assume this way of playing, except for so-called Free rooms. There's a great variety of rooms, offering different ticket price: € 0.05, -, € 0.10, -, € 0.25, - and up to € 0.50, - per card. Cards can be bought during a sales stage, indicated by a clock in the upper right corner of the game screen. To the left of the clock, you will see cards face down, each with a buy button. Clicking it would have this card bought for you. You may also use the Buy 1 or Buy all buttons. Those would pick a randomly chosen single card or all ten cards for you accordingly (your balance should be sufficient to have Buy all enabled). An Autobuy, when enabled, would tell the game to automatically buy the same number of cards for you as in the previous round.
To start playing you need to deposit some money first. Select 'Play for real' in the Cashier menu at the bottom right of the screen. There are several payment methods available, please follow the on-screen instructions.
Bingo is not only about play, but about meet and talk. It's a social game. The booming Internet technologies have somewhat distanced people in real world, while at a same time, provided a unique communication tool for those who cannot afford to travel or is bound to a place or circumstances. With Bingolot, we've built a game, which takes the best of the "two worlds". And we also provide free rooms. It means, that players might get up to 2 cards for free, yet they can chat with others and win real money prizes. Won amounts can be either used to play further and buy cards in other rooms, or be withdrawn (requires a minimum of € 50 or more).
Enjoy our bingo game! We wish you the best of luck!
