Few casinos or bingo games developed by giants of the industry Playtech ever fail, and they have come up with another belter in the shape of Housey Bingo.
While ‘housey’ is simply another name for bingo, there is a difference here from what we’re used to; there are no numbers or balls, but playing cards instead.
How to play
While how the rounds, or hands, in this case, are displayed are a little different this is still an incredibly simple game to play.
Housey Bingo Ticket Prices
Rather than buying tickets, you buy into a hand, much like any card game, and you can do this from 0.05 to 0.40 coins making Housey Bingo very cheap.
Players can get hold of up to five hands at a time to increase the chances of winning.
There is no caller needed here as there are no numbered balls. Instead, playing cards and icon combinations are shown as the game progresses with the main point being to get a full house – in Housey Bingo, this is called ‘matching a whole hand’.
In every game of Housey Bingo, there is a row of 5 cards, with ten rows in a game being the maximum. Cards are called frequently as the game plays out, i.e. the ace of spades or the jack of diamonds.
Your own hands can be marked automatically and if you mark off five cards in a row, you are the winner!
Getting a full house prize, or in this case, matching a whole hand, is the aim and if you can manage that then you can qualify for the progressive jackpot.
Visually, the game is impressive. Information on jackpots and total prize funds is displayed at the top of your game page along with how many people are playing.
You can also use the ‘Ace of Spades Bar’ to change up the number of tickets you want while the game is played amid a fairly normal casino-style background.
Housey Bingo Jackpot Feature
We always love a bingo game with a jackpot, and the Housey Jackpot is a good one! If you’re the first player to see all the cards turned over and get a full house, you could be in line for the jackpot.
The Housey Jackpot is a progressive beginning at 500 coins. It kicks in should the full house be claimed in 7 numbers or less, with everyone scoring.
Half the jackpot is given to the actual full house winner, the rest is divided among the other players – a terrific feature!
Return to Player
As is often the case with such games, the Return to Player percentage is above 80% with Housey Bingo which is more than fair.
We always love the mixing of casino aesthetics and traditional bingo games, with this 52-card game being simpler to play than a 90-ball game.
Tickets are cheap, graphics are good, and there is a very easy way to get a shot at the progressive jackpot so there is nothing not to like with Housey Bingo!
