I’m slightly biased here as I love the Mega Fire Blaze Bonus Round feature. I think the Roulette version is brilliant, and I must admit, I love this Bingo variant.
Keeping the number of cards manageable is precisely how I want to play Bingo. I can just about keep track of the lines as they build, and the helpful highlighting of the dots in Red and Orange make it easy to see what numbers have gone and the single numbers needed to make up a line.
I like the extra random free ball you get on the bonus rounds, and whenever you get the bonus round, you feel there is a chance to win big.
Knowing the maximum payout for each round is good, as that sets some expectations. The big wins come in the Mega bonus round, but the stars must line up if you hope to see more than 100x regularly.
All in all a great bingo game. Simple in its delivery and excellent in its execution.
The Big Wheel game mechanic has been done to death, so I think that’s why we’re seeing more and more entertainment games with a Bingo format.
Mega Ball by Evolution started it all, and it’s the game to play if you like playing lots of cards.
Deal or No Deal, the Big Draw by Playtech uses a Bingo mechanic but isn’t Bingo.
Vegas Ball Bonanza by Pragmatic is another good bingo game with limited cards and multipliers.
Monopoly Big Baller fuses Bingo with the exciting Monopoly Bonus Round. It’s simple to play and can deliver some lovely wins on the cards and bonus rounds.
The game has two great features. Firstly the Bingo game is easy to play, and you can view the progress of the cards filling up well. Secondly is the Mega Fire Bonus round, which has three options, all delivering multiplier wins.
The only strategy you can use is deciding how many cards and bonus rounds you want to bet on. There’s a Bet All facility, which is one way to play, or you can choose to play a few cards and the bonus cards or just the bonus cards. No strategy will guarantee a win, but it will help you manage your bankroll while waiting for the bonus rounds to hit.
The games are different, so personal choice has much to do with whether you think one game is better. I rank the three in this order – Mega Fire Blaze Lucky Ball, Vegas Ball Bonanza and the Mega Ball.
The differences are the number of cards in play and how the multipliers are assigned. Mega Fire Blaze Lucky Ball has a bonus round, whereas the other two rely on multipliers in the main game.
My go-to online Playtech casino has to be BetVictor.
The RTP is 97.32%.
Payouts on the bingo cards go from 4:1 up to 99:1, while the bonus round Major pays 4 – 199:1, Grand 9-699:1 and Mega 19 – 2499:1.
Most casinos with Playtech Live Dealer Games have the game. It can be found in the Lobby under Game Shows.
