Flash Fives Bingo is also known as 52-5 bingo and is brought to you from 888 Bingo. It’s a new addition to the online bingo world and is a brilliantly modern take on classic bingo. Unlike traditional 75-ball and 90-ball bingo however, this game is played using a pack of cards instead of numbered balls.
We’ve said before how much we love the combination of classic card and casino games being integrated into bingo as they add a new dimension to the game, with Flash Fives Bingo or ’52-5’ bingo being among the best we’ve seen to far!
How to play
Players can buy tickets in advance of Flash Fives Bingo, though in this case they are called hands. Each hand contains five playing cards from a standard 52-card deck. Cards are called at random and if they are shown on your ticket or hand, they will be covered by a chip.
The first player to cover all five playing cards wins!
How to Play Flash Fives Bingo
Tickets are made available for 52-5 before each game at which time your five cards are revealed. After you buy tickets for the Flash Fives Bingo game, all you have to do is wait for the next game to start. You can watch the time tick down before the next game on the screen in the upper left corner so that you don’t miss anything, as this game can move fast.
With 30 seconds left before the start of the game, the timer goes red and you are alerted to what is your last chance to take part. Games in Flash Fives Bingo begin every few minutes and the cards being dealt are called quickly.
Wins are naturally only for a ‘full house’ in this game, in other words covering all five cards with chips as they are called out. Once a player wins, the game immediately ends and a message regarding the win appears on the screen alongside the winner’s name, keeping the format simple and very exciting!
As you have to cover five cards from a 52-card deck, multiple winners are possible in Flash Fives Bingo. The jackpot, when won, is handed out evenly between all winning players with all names displayed on the screen.
As chips cover cards automatically, there is absolutely nothing you have to do in order to win this game. Simply buy your tickets and watch the game play out!
Return to Player
The RTP in Flash Fives Bingo is decided by the ticket price and the number of players buying tickets for each game. Generally speaking though, the Return to Player percentage of online games like this one over the course of a month will top 80% and that makes it fair.
We love the simplicity of Flash Fives Bingo, and unusually it’s that simple nature that makes the game all the more exciting. 52-5 can be over in a flash, but tickets can be bought cheaply and there can be multiple winners in each hand so this really is a great way to pass time for fans of both card games and traditional bingo alike.
