Forget the four-leaf clover or lucky horseshoe, your good fortune is already in once you start playing 90-ball Lucky For Some Bingo from Mecca Bingo. That’s because games alternate between being completely free or costing just a penny to play. So you’ve literally nothing to lose.
And if Lady Luck is really smiling, you could find yourself bagging the top prize of a grand. (But hundreds of pounds are given away in prizes in this room daily.)
How to play
Lucky For Some Bingo is open every day between 9 am and 10 pm, and as an alternative to playing for free, you can upgrade to something called Superbooks. This means that although you’ll be spending on tickets, you’ll have a better chance of winning the juicier prizes than with the freebies.
Just check when the next game starts, get the tickets you want and you’re good to go.
Each 90-ball ticket comprises three rows and nine columns. In each row, there are five numbers, meaning that in all there are always 15 numbers on each ticket.
And, as usual in a bingo game, there are three main prizes up for grabs, for marking off one or two lines or completing a Full House ahead of your fellow players.
Lucky for Some Bingo Special Features
Lucky For Some Bingo is one of Mecca’s exclusive Premiere Jackpots rooms. Prizes are organised across five levels, from bronze to diamond, and will pop up at random. The good news is that the rewards can be highly attractive; they start at £10 and increase in value to be worth more than £30k.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, these are won regularly, but the frequency depends on the size of the jackpot. The bronze award, for example, paying a tenner, is up for grabs every couple of hours. Meanwhile, the top diamond jackpot starts at £10k and is only won monthly.
As with many bingo games, there are no particular bonus rounds or features in Lucky For Some Bingo.
Return to Player (RTP)
In common with other Mecca games, this figure isn’t published separately with Lucky For Some Bingo. But Return to Player, or RTP, is typically expressed as a percentage and describes the winnings paid out to players, relative to the money staked.
In bingo, the average RTP is typically much lower than with slots games, so make the most of those free or very cheap tickets!
Lucky For Some Bingo is a good one to play if you like a low-stakes or free game or have a particular aversion to risk. Additionally, it’s straightforward to play, so it could be a great game to kick off with if you’re still new to the world of online bingo. If you want something a little more challenging or varied, however, you might want to look elsewhere.
Equally, you’ll have the reassurance of playing with the backing of a highly respected and well-established national bingo operator, one that’s bagged multiple industry awards. What’s more, with so many bingo rooms to play in, you can easily pop into a different one any time it takes your fancy. And the lively chat community means that there’s always a bingo buddy to natter away to and congratulate you when you’ve won or commiserate if you haven’t.
