We’re all for quick and cheap games, but sometimes they come without the chance to win some serious money. That’s something you cannot say about Mega Ball Live Bingo from Evolution Gaming, however.
This brisk game styled as much like keno as bingo, hands you the opportunity to win anything up to 999,999 times your stake!
Despite the huge odds involved, tickets are available from only 0.20 coins each as Mega Ball Live Bingo really attempts to jump-start the live bingo genre.
How to play
In terms of how balls are called, picture a number generator like those seen in lottery games. As well as that, in Mega Ball Live Bingo you will also see a real live presenter and a bonus wheel in operation.
The live set is reminiscent of an old-school game show, the presenter chatting to players as the game is going on.
Your presenter will change every half an hour so you won’t get bored with the game, while the chat can be switched off.
Mega Ball Live Bingo Features
Mega Ball Live Bingo is a very fast-paced game, so be prepared for that. The first step is to buy your cards, you can have between 1 and 200 of them, with each priced at 0.10, 0.20, 1, 2, 5 or 10 coins.
Tickets contain a 5×5 grid with numbers between 1 and 50. Only 20 balls are randomly drawn when the game begins and you simply have to mark off as many of them as you can.
The twist here is that you are not being tasked with landing a full house before your fellow players, mainly because it’s not possible! The name of the game instead is to chalk off as many lines as you possibly can to win a prize.
One full line gets your stake returned, two lines gets you 4 times your stake, three lines are 49 times and five lines gets you a multiple of 999. If you’re extremely lucky and get six lines, then you are returned at x 9999 your stake!
The Mega Ball
The Mega Ball adds another dimension to the base game. The Mega Ball is the 21st ball to be drawn, with the multiplier wheel being spun first.
The wheel can land on x5, x10, x50 or even x100. If the Mega Ball then completes a line for you, then your prize is further multiplied by the amount on the wheel.
Return to Player
Across all players and over a full month of games, the RTP for Mega Ball Live Bingo is between 80% and 85% which is fair.
However, your chances of a win, and especially how much, depends on how many tickets you buy, what your basic stake is and of course how lucky you manage to be!
What we love pretty much most of all with bingo games is a wide range of opportunities.
So, a game that can be bought into from 0.10 or for 2,000 coins and can win you anything from a 0.10 coins stake return up to thousands of pounds is a winner for us!
