Emoji Bingo is the game you didn’t know you needed. Love ‘em or loathe ‘em, emojis’ little yellow faces are everywhere and here to stay. The range is constantly growing, and they’ve even had their own (less than well-received) movie.
Now you can play Emoji Bingo exclusively at industry juggernaut Mecca. Basically, the game uses emojis instead of balls. What’s more, it comes with not one but two jackpots! It’s also part of Mecca’s Premiere Jackpots collection, which should give you a smiley face! Emoji Bingo is one of three 50-ball offerings from this well-known operator, which promises an ‘emojional rollercoaster’.
How to play
Tickets cost between 25p and £3 — you pick your own ticket price. Emoji Bingo is open virtually all hours from 7 am to 2 am daily. However, you can only buy one card for each game. And while all players take part in the same game, the value of jackpots and prizes depends on the ticket price you’ve chosen.
You’ll play with smiley faces and similar symbols. However, the game essentially follows a standard 50-ball pattern. Emojis featured include a heart, kiss, the famous poo symbol, and others. Of course, there’s also the ubiquitous custard-coloured grinning circle.
On your bingo card, you’ll see random emojis floating in speech marks. Each card contains 10 numbers. Your ultimate goal is to fill all the numbers to bag the Full House prize.
Play on the go if you prefer! Mecca’s app received the Best Mobile Bingo Product accolade in the 2019 EGR Awards.
Emoji Bingo Special Features
You’ll be pleased to learn that Emoji Bingo has a couple of progressive jackpots. You can win the Emoji Jackpot simply by completing Full House within 19 calls. Whereas to win the Emoji Big One you need to bag Full House within 16 calls.
Both the Emoji Jackpot and the Emoji Big One are community jackpots. This means players share the prize pot in a particular game whenever they hit the jackpot.
Emoji Bingo is also one of a few rooms featuring Mecca’s exclusive Premiere Bingo Jackpots. These jackpots have five tiers of prizes, from £10 up to £30,000 and beyond, with a massive progressive prize pot.
The tiers are bronze — with a £10 fixed prize won on average every couple of hours — silver, gold, platinum, and diamond — won on average every month. The diamond jackpot starts at £10,000!
Because the game focuses on jackpot winnings, Emoji Bingo doesn’t have any bonus games.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player is a percentage that tells you how much money (on average) you can expect to win back. Like many bingo sites, this isn’t published on Emoji Bingo, but it’s usually somewhere around 80%, significantly lower than the slots average of 94 to 96%.
Emoji Bingo is packed with quirky characters. It’s particularly fun if you already love using emojis. What’s more, you should feel in safe hands. That’s because Mecca is a household-name operator.
Not all industry reviewers love Emoji Bingo, and one or two even said the sound effects are somewhat grating. But only you can decide whether it’s a game that works for you. So give it a go — and tell us what you think!
