Affectionately known as BOB, Best Odds Bingo does what it says on the tin. The game is engineered to give all players the same chance of winning and that’s something we love!
To make the game as fair as possible, every player in the room gets 10 tickets each and there can be no more than 25 people in a room.
The main Best Odds Bingo game costs 0.50 coins, an amount covering all ten tickets, though you can play for more in special BOB event rooms with cards available at 1, 1.50 and 2.50 coins for ten tickets.
As if to confirm that this is a top-notch game, BOB has also won awards within the industry.
Its popularity knows no bounds and it’s hardly a surprise given that, in what is essentially a game of chance, what we all want is fairness and an equal opportunity to win and that’s precisely what you get with Best Odds Bingo.
How to play
BOB games are available at Mecca Bingo from 9 in the morning right through to 1 AM. Prizes go up to 100 coins in the main game, which is a 50-ball format giving all players a fair go which is achieved via the online game’s mechanics.
Best Odds Bingo Gameplay
All you need to do to get going is choose your particular BOB game (some have higher ticket prices, though are available from 0.50 coins), but be quick as no more than 25 players can get into a room to keep it fair.
When you buy your tickets, you will receive 10 for each game which is the same as everyone else, the even nature of the game meaning no undue advantages. This leads to smaller wins but more often, prizes being handed out for a line and a full house.
There are some special features too.
A clever take on the game’s name, the ‘A Few Extra BOB’ features involves full house winners getting a fixed amount jackpot (shown within the game) if they call house in 17 to 20 calls during the 50-ball game.
Also available is ‘BOB’s Your Uncle’. A progressive jackpot, this starts off at 100 coins and keeps growing as more players add their stakes. Once more the amount you’re playing for is shown on screen when you begin your game. You win this if calling ‘house’ in 16 calls or under.
Return to Player
Overall, the Return to Player percentage in Best Odds Bingo is around 80%, in line with other online bingo games.
The idea, however, is that each and every individual player has an equal chance of landing the full house, and that’s there the fair nature of the game kicks in.
This really has to be as close to the perfect format as possible.
A 50-ball game is neither too long nor too short, the fair nature of the game means smaller wins more often and yet with a progressive jackpot feature included you can still play for bigger money too! BOB is a winner.
