This game could be just the ticket (literally!) if you’re after some good old-fashioned classic bingo fun. Jackpotjoy’s Bingo Royale is bursting at the seams with juicy jackpots, fun, and above all, winners!
It’s a traditional 90-ball affair, with three main prizes up for grabs – for completing one or two lines or a full house. Just be the first to do one of these three things and you take home a cash prize. There’s a twist, however – in the unusual form of a Royal Pardon. Read on to learn more…
How to play
There’s nothing overly complex about playing Bingo Royale, and it follows standard rules.
To play Bingo Royale, first click on the Buy Tickets button, which you’ll find in the middle column of your screen, and go to the purchasing facility. Choose how many tickets you want, hit Buy to confirm and you’re good to go.
You’ll find ticket prices vary, as do jackpots, depending on things like the number of players, how many tickets have been purchased and how much for.
There’s no need to bother about marking off the tickets yourself. The game’s automatic daubers can do that for you, giving you more time to just watch or focus on what really matters – nattering away to your bingo buddies using the chat feature!
Bingo Royale special features
The chat feature
If you’ve played other Jackpotjoy games, the chat feature will be familiar to you, and so you’ll already know it’s straightforward to use. Simply enter your message, hit Send and that’s it.
Chat away to the chat moderators or hosts and fellow players, and indulge in some top-notch bingo banter. Words from the chat host are highlighted in red, so they stand out.
What’s more, it’s worth looking out for the regular chat games offering more chances to land cash and other special prizes.
The Royal Pardon feature
This is issued by His Majesty if he’s in the palace. The feature crops up nearly a third (30%) of the time following a game, and it gives you five extra balls to play with, as decided by the Royal dog you’ll see, and the number of times he barks.
The Royal Pardon jackpot
Should you complete Full House thanks to these calls, you get a share of the Royal Pardon jackpot. Part of every ticket sale is added to the total for this.
Again, how much this is worth can vary depending on how many players are taking part in the game.
But, essentially, it works in the same way as a conventional bingo progressive jackpot.
Return to Player (RTP)
Return to Player or RTP is the sum paid out to players relative to all betting. With Bingo Royale, it hovers around 80.99% – 85.45%, which is the same as it is for all of Jackpotjoy’s offerings, and pretty standard for a bingo game. For the really high RTPs, head for the slot machines.
With TV stars such as Paddy McGuinness and Barbara Windsor advertising the brand nationally, Jackpotjoy has a huge profile. And the operator has many other games in its catalogue, so you can easily try something else any time you fancy a change.
What’s more, it’s known for its excellent customer service and generous welcome bonus. (You get £50 of free bingo on your first deposit of a tenner.)
With the emphasis firmly on fun, we’re confident there’s every reason to give Bingo Royale a whirl. Let us know what you reckon.
