Fun, stylish 90-ball Blox Bingo was launched in the summer of 2018, powered by Gamesys with some great graphics and a look and feel that players quickly warmed to. It’s available via Heart Bingo and Jackpotjoy and also incorporates a Tetris/gems-style bonus round as well as its 90-ball game.
The daubing and cards have come in for praise from reviewers, indeed one described the former as the best they’d ever seen.
How to play
Playing Blox Bingo really couldn’t be any easier. Tickets kick off from 10p a pop, with prices going up to 25p. Rooms are open from 9 am each day. The game works similarly to any other 90-ball offering, so, once you’ve sorted out your tickets, just kick back and relax as you play and enjoy the game.
As with most bingo games, you’ll need to check your numbers as they’re called to see whether you’re a winner. You can be one if you complete a single or two lines, or call Full House before your fellow players.
Jackpot and linked games
Blox Bingo does feature a jackpot, which you win by completing within 38 calls or fewer.
Equally, keep an eye out for the linked games running across Jackpotjoy and Heart as jackpot and game prizes increase. For these games, price is typically 25p rather than the more standard price for Blox of 10p.
Bonus games: Blox Blitz
Once the 90-ball game has ended, the Blox Blitz bonus round kicks in. You’re entitled to play this if you’ve purchased a minimum of six tickets.
However, you will need actively to accept this option, since you won’t be entered automatically to play it. Equally, Blox is a fast-paced game so there isn’t much time to click!
Playing the round essentially involves lining up blocks of similar colours in groups or lines of at least three. This will win you points, meaning the blocks can then be taken away from the grid. You have just 60 seconds to play this. As we said, it’s fast-paced!
Collecting enough points wins you free tickets to the next game. The number of free tickets depends on both your own individual score plus the community one. You should also be aware that the bonus round won’t activate the next game if you play it with more than six free tickets.
While there doesn’t seem to be a particular winning strategy as such, bear in mind that the blocks do move (sometimes quite slowly), whether they make a line of three or not.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is 80.99-85.45% with Blox Bingo.
Some reviewers have described Blox as an updated version of a now-discontinued game called Bejewelled Bingo. It’s true that one or two reviewers have dismissed Blox Bingo as just another 90-ball game with a bonus round that’s unlikely to push many boundaries. But the fact that the rooms are consistently busy shows that it must be doing something right!
Only you can tell whether it’s a game for you. Play it and see for yourself.
