Popular operator Gala Bingo already had Coronation Street in its stable, now another top soap theme in the form of Emmerdale – 90-Ball Bingo has been added.
We have a healthy mixture of two quintessentially British pastimes here; the Emmerdale TV show and good-old 90-ball bingo.
Players here are invited to play a very traditional form of the game, but with various new features and all the while following the Emmerdale narrative that so many of us have been used to for the past 50 years!
How to play
Tickets cost just 0.10 credits each and the game can be played 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
There are some extra game features, such as Emmerdale Trail Jackpots and the Country Miles Bonus which we’ll take you through, while the bingo calls are done in a themed style relating to the TV show.
How to Play Emmerdale – 90-Ball Bingo
The mechanics of the game are indeed a basic 90-ball bingo game, though it is set in fictional Emmerdale, Yorkshire. Each number is called in the normal way and players are tasked with marking off a line, two lines or a full house to win.
To make things more authentic for fans, calls are made in a Yorkshire accent and have been adapted specially to match the theme of the game.
During the game you may hear “Home Farm Tree – 33”, “Dingle’s like to Skive – 35”, “Tom King’s in Heaven – 57” (controversial!), “The Hotton Bus Never Comes – 61” or “Sheep on the Run – 71” which adds some great interest to the game!
There are a couple off added-on features here to keep us entertained.
At the end of every game a white Range Rover appears and drives around the village. How many moves it makes depends on the winning number in the game. At various points you’ll see familiar Emmerdale landmarks which correspond to a jackpot; The Grange B&B (60) or the Dingles’ Garage (80) for example.
Country Miles Bonus
Should the Range Rover land on a landmark then a fixed-points prize is given out. After the full house prize is claimed a further 75 credits are given out should the car pull in at the Dingles’ Garage, while for other locations a prize of 50 credits can be shared between the full house winner and the other players in the room.
Return to Player
Keeping it in line with other themed online bingo games of this type, the Return to Player percentage (RTP) is above 80% in Emmerdale’s 90-ball game, which is perfectly fair.
These figures are taken across all players for a whole month, so the amounts you win and how often will always vary according to how many tickets you buy – and how lucky you are!
Surely everybody loves Emmerdale? Well, there is a definite correlation between those who love the popular Yorkshire soap and those who love 90-ball bingo, so we can’t think of a better combination!
This is a very easy game to play and keeps all players entertained with its familiar theme.
