One of the major debates in and around the online bingo scene in recent times surrounds what the ideal number variant is for a game.
Traditional 90-ball bingo is backed up by some great 75-ball games, but because of the advent of card-related games (52 numbers) games of around 50 have increased in popularity, including the excellent Bingo Bowl!
Various operators run their own 50-ball games, such as Coconut Island (Gala Bingo) and Mystical (Sky Bingo) and now William Hill have joined the party with this excellent variation of the game which has a great bowling theme.
Bingo Bowl can be played on desktop devices but is equally good on mobile. The game can be downloaded for any iOS or Android smartphone or tablet and can therefore be played easily on the move.
How to play
The crux of Bingo Bowl is that it is a simple 50-ball game. Tickets cost from only 0.05 credits each and the game is available daily from 11.50am. Jackpots are offered during the game too.
How to Play Bingo Bowl
First thing’s first; you should remember that Bingo Bowl is a William Hill exclusive so you’ll need to be a member there to play the game.
10-pin bowling is of course our theme for this entertaining 50-ball variant, with the game background providing a fairly accurate bowling alley feel.
Playing the game couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is click to buy your tickets from 0.05 to 0.10 credits each, then sit back and wait for the numbers to be called out! Cards can be marked automatically so there really is nothing you need to do to increase your chances of a win.
Cards are made up of 10 numbered bowling pins. As is the case in all 50-number games, the idea is for you to mark off all ten of your numbers before anyone else to win the game.
Bingo Bowl Wins
While the main win is the full house for marking off all ten numbers, there are in fact two extra prizes on offer in Bingo Bowl.
The full house is backed up by the Lucky Strike Jackpot and the Kingpin Jackpot. Keep an eye on the jackpot amounts in your chosen room, with each one triggered by landing the full house within a given number of calls.
Return to Player
In line with the vast majority of online bingo games, William Hill’s Bingo Bowl runs at an RTP of 80% – 85%. Keep in mind that this figure is based on the return given to all players in all rooms over a month, so your own return may vary and how much you win depends on your ticket price – and your luck!
50-ball games are increasing in popularity all the time, as are those with really simple and fun themes and so when you put the two together with Bingo Bowl you have a winner!
The game can be played easily on the move which is a bonus, while wins are fairly small but very regular.
