Bingo Millions 90 Review
Bingo Millions is a bingo meets lottery style game that originally launched on Buzz Bingo. Developed by Mutuel Play this unique game has since been launched on other platforms including Jumpman. In addition Buzz has expanded it’s offering by adding 75 and 80 ball versions of the game as well as instant wins. The original Bingo Millions game is a 90 ball one and gives you the chance to win a growing jackpot of over £1.5million on Bingo Millions. When we first wrote about the game here on Penny it was to mark it’s arrival on Jumpman sites such as Dove Bingo and Balmly Bingo. We called it a good thing as it dramatically improved the bingo product on these brands.
How To Play Bingo Millions 90
Bingo Millions plays every Wednesday and Saturday evening at 10pm at Buzz Bingo and other sites. Tickets cost 50p each and you can purchase for both draws up to 4 weeks in advance. The actual bingo game plays like a typical 90 ball one. You simply buy your tickets and wait for eyes down. However there’s a twist with this game because it’s more lottery than bingo. Instead of playing against other players you’re really playing against the calls. Each game has a fixed number of calls (70) and the aim is to reach one line, two lines or a full house within a certain number of calls. It doesn’t matter if other players get 1L, 2L or FH – you still keep playing on with your ticket until the final call.
It’s possible for multiple players to win on the lines and full house. The prizes that can be won vary depending on the number of calls taken to reach one line, two lines or the full house. For example call 1L in 5 to 9 calls to win £500. However the prize reduces to £50 for 10 to 14 calls. If you’ve not reached one line by a certain number of calls (35) then you can’t win that prize but you could still win 2L or FH. Note there are limits so you won’t always win and the more calls it takes to reach a win the lower the prize. The lowest prizes are free tickets for another Bingo Millions game or a strip of tickets. In order to get the larger cash prizes you’ll need a big dose of luck. The £1.5million progressive will only be won if full house is achieved in 30 calls or less. We do wonder whether anyone will ever actually win this prize? As far as we know no one has actually won the progressive to date.
Bingo Millions Game History
Because it’s very much like a lottery game you can review the results of Bingo Millions from previous weeks. This is well worth doing because it gives you an idea of prize distribution. For example in February 2021 the biggest prize won during any single game was £100. However that’s an unusual result as other weeks the top prizes awarded were between £5 and £20. To us this doesn’t suggest that it’s a great game for winning and that the odds are against you. In many respects players might find better enjoyment purchasing tickets for a more traditional game.
Instant Win Games
As of April 2021 Bingo Millions rooms such as the 90 ball game reviewed above have been dropped by Buzz and Jumpman brands. Instant win versions of 75, 80 and 90 ball games are available at all sites whilst Buzz still has the Turbo instant game. Buzz also has slot versions of 75 and 90 ball Bingo Millions. The way these games play are similar to the above but without other players in the room. The closure of the multiplayer rooms has not been announced by any site to date but it doesn’t look like it’s going to be returning to our screens.
Penny’s Thoughts On Bingo Millions
Back in 2019 we said that Bingo Millions was a good thing for Jumpman sites – that prediction probably hasn’t come true and in fact Pragmatic Play’s product came to their rescue. The problem with the game is that it doesn’t really engage the roomies in the same way as traditional bingo as essentially you’re playing against the computer. In many respects Bubble Bingo at Tombola is similar with all players playing an instant win game at the same time but it’s much better and more enjoyable. Whilst it’s sad the multiplayer rooms have gone it’s perhaps not the biggest surprise.
