Hit 52 Bingo Review

Hit 52 BingoHit 52 is the Dragonfish version of 52 ball bingo. It may be called other names on different Dragonfish sites so look out for Flash Fives, Fiver Fever, 52-5, Suits You, Suit Up etc. Bingo operators are always looking for novel ways to develop the popular numbers game and using playing cards instead of numbered balls is an easy win. Tombola were one of the first platforms to look at this kind of game with Cinco. Jackpotjoy did used to have a similar game called Snap. However it’s taken other operators like Virtue Fusion (Housey) and Dragonfish (Hit 52) to catch up with Tombola. The premise and format of each of these games is the pretty much the same.

How To Play Hit 52 Bingo

In Hit 52 your bingo ticket comprises five playing cards. The aim of the game is to match cards on your bingo ticket with those that are called during the round. Ticket prices start at 5p and you can choose to play between 1 and 96 tickets. At eyes down the numbers – or cards – are called and the game plays like any other bingo version. The first player to coverall their five cards wins the pot. Note that Hit 52 games usually come with a minimum guaranteed jackpot and the pot grows as the number of players increases.

One thing that we find a little strange with Hit 52 is the accompanying oompah style music and the sound of theme park rides running in the background. It’s almost as though Dragonfish have been a little bit over-inspired by the success of Tombola’s Cinco and Roller-coaster games! You can switch the music off by clicking the speaker icon at the top right of the lobby. There is a chat window for Hit 52 but when we dropped in there wasn’t a chat host. However you can play side games in the mini games window if you like.

Penny’s Verdict On Hit 52

First of all we really wish Dragonfish had picked a name for their 52 ball playing card room and applied it across all their brands. Drop in to Suits You at Wink or Suit Up at Moon or 52-5 on Costa and you’re still playing the same Hit 52 game that’s on at Queen Bee. We like the guaranteed minimum prize and the fact that tickets are cheap, but there’s no chat and the number of players seems quite limited. If you’re a fan of Cinco at Tombola where the rooms are usually packed this actually might be a positive thing although remember the ticket numbers per player can be as high as 96 on each game.

However when compared to Cinco it’s perhaps not surprising to see Hit 52 struggling. Tombola run regular promotions, limit tickets per player per game to just 5, limit player per game and offer the chance to win fixed jackpots for calling house in 5, 6 or 7 calls. Tombola’s Cinco rooms are also a lot busier so the prizes are bigger. It is good to see Dragonfish innovating though and adding to their roster of standard 75 ball and 90 ball games, but Hit 52 just fails to hit the mark.
