Bingo Blast Review
Bingo Blast is the first variant of bingo added to the Pragmatic Play platform. Most bingo sites will offer players traditional 75 and 90 ball games but to jazz things up they also mix in themed games, speed games, different number ball games and occasionally something innovative. Bingo Blast is a mix of traditional, speed and innovation as it’s a rapid 90 ball game which cuts straight to the full house action.
How To Play Bingo Blast
When you first visit Bingo Blast at any site with Pragmatic Play bingo rooms you’ll be forgiven in thinking you’re about to settle down for a normal 90 ball game. You purchase your tickets as usual and prices usually start at 5p. You can buy up to 48 tickets per game. It’s only at eyes down that things deviate from the norm. In a traditional game the number calls start one at a time but in Bingo Blast a bunch of numbers are flash on the screen. If any of these numbers match on your ticket then they’re crossed off.
This is then followed by another set of numbers and the process repeats. At this point – as we near the full house – the number calls start in rapid succession. Blink and you’ll probably miss the winner as this is seriously speedy! And that’s it Bingo Blast is done and dusted and it’s time to buy more tickets. There are no 1L or 2L winners and no jackpots, just one winner of a full house. The idea behind the game is to cut out the time it takes to draw the first 40 to 50 balls and play the exciting bit at the end of bingo when everyone wants to know who wins the big prize.
Is It A Bingo Blast?
Bingo Blast has been hyped up a lot and perhaps that’s not a surprise as it’s Pragmatic Play’s first foray into doing something different with the bingo game. However it’s not a game we’ve enjoyed playing. With bingo the build up to 1L, 2L and FH are part of the game as is roomies sharing the 1TG, 2TG etc messages in chat. Blast does away with that and drags you right into the final throes. It’s fun for a couple of rounds but it’s all a bit too fast. There’s no time for chat, to get frustrated that 27 just won’t appear whilst you’re on 1TG and finally angry because bingoqueen01 has won for the umpteenth time today.
