Can't decide whether you're in the mood for bingo or a slot machine? Why not get the best of both worlds with this bingo themed slot machine by Parlay Games, with 5-reels and 20 paylines filled with iconic bingo paraphernalia.
This video slot takes on the same gameplay settings as most other titles from this software developer, meaning that players can expect to play a relatively simple game with a few special features, such as free spins, wild wins and a special bonus side game with random prizes.
Bingo Slot is actually quite a simple game is terms of theme and design, with no particularly interesting narrative elements or characters to give a personal touch. Instead, there is just a basic range of bingo related icons presented in block squares upon the reels. Five of those symbols spell out the word B-I-N-G-O while other icons depict a set of bingo cards and some bingo brand logos from The Bingo Affiliates programme – that includes Amigo Bingo, Canadian Dollar Bingo and Bingo Australia.
So, if you love bingo, then there is every chance that you will love this slot machine. If you're not too fussed about bingo, then you'll probably be a bit underwhelmed!
Hopefully, players won't be too disappointed with the range of wagering options on show. Because, in truth, it isn't the biggest in the business. In fact, the biggest total bet on offer in Bingo Slot is capped at 10.00 credits, which consists of 5 coins worth 0.10 credits laid down on 20 active paylines. While that may not appeal to the highest of rollers out there, there should be plenty of scope to play around with lower stake permutations, making this game perfect for casual and intermediate level bettors.
The maximum possible stake per line is 0.50, and this is important to know since the majority of wins that this slot machine has to offer are calculated from line bet multipliers. These occur whenever a series of identical reel symbols align on active paylines and the biggest multiplier available is only 600x. So, the biggest win you can hope to find in the base game is 300 credits, which isn't a lot by any slot machine's standards. Check out the table below to see all of the different winning combinations with their respective line bet multiplier payouts.
Admittedly, this slot machine doesn't offer the biggest payouts in the standard game. However, it does hold the potential to award bigger wins thanks to one of its generic bonus features – a free spin triggering scatter icon. This star symbol scatter won't payout any prizes in and of itself, but it will award 13 free spins whenever three or more appear in any position over the 5x3 reel grid. And how does this game help you rack up the wins? Well, all prizes awarded for the duration of the 13 free games will be multiplied by 3x, effectively upping the potential jackpot line multiplier to 1,800x.
This game also has a side game triggering “Bonus” icon – depicted by the bingo tickets. Again, three or more of these scatters will trigger the feature, regardless of where they line up on the game screen. This will give players the chance to pick some bonus prizes from a set of options which are calculated in relation to the total bet. So, the bigger the bet you play when this side game is activated, the bigger the bonus wins you can expect to find.
Last, but by no means least, there is a wild symbol as represented by the diamond icon. Even though this symbol doesn't have any value on its own, it will help players to make those winning sequences by substituting for all of the normal paying icons.
Truth be told, Bingo Slot is a fairly disappointing slot machine all round. Unless you really like your bingo, then there is nothing interesting about the theme other than a few bingo balls and a random Easter egg. And as for the payouts, this game's ultimate base game jackpot is limited to a measly 300 credits, so there isn't exactly much of an incentive to play from a prize-winning perspective. What's more, even the bonus features take after the generic Parlay Games set-up, so you will be able to get the same triple-win free spins elsewhere with much more interesting design features.
