Fans of low-stakes bingo games, and the previously popular Pirates game, will be happy with the launch of Picture Bingo which has been designed for players on the move.
The game is available not just on desktop sites but also on all smartphones and tablets and has a picture matching theme we absolutely love.
The narrative in one theme features crime in the 1920’s, a real murder mystery, with players being tasked to find out who committed the crime and thus win the jackpot! In another you can play the “greatest show in bingo”, but whatever you choose you can chat away and play from just 0.05 coins a ticket.
How to play
In Picture Bingo you can decide from various game themes; Pirates, Circus or Mystery. Within each you can buy 1-3 tickets per game, at 0.05, 0.10, 0.25 or 0.50 coins and remember – how much you play for affects how much you can win.
When the game begins calls are made using symbols, players simply matching symbols from their ticket if they have it, rather than numbers. The winner is the first player to match all symbols on one ticket.
Picture Bingo Features
Picture Bingo is played for one line and full house prizes. The Circus theme features tiles with circus performers and implements, Mystery is represented by suspects from a 1920’s crime and the Pirates tiles are, well, Pirates!
The engine underneath Picture is essentially a 90-ball game, only with symbols instead of numbers which are on tiles instead of balls.
The game is played on a 5 x 3 grid with 45 pictures maximum in each game. The first player to match all symbols on a single ticket wins, with prizes given at various levels for a line and a full house.
There is a jackpot prize in Picture Bingo, with up to 1,000 coins being available. If a player matches all symbols in 26 calls or less from the 45 pictures available in the game.
Various tickets and prize amounts are available, so players need to maximise their chances of winning.
Players can buy up to 3 tickets each per game – a full strip contains all 45 symbols – from 0.05 to 0.50 coins with the fixed jackpot prize amount being 2000 coins x your card price.
In other words, if you bought a card at 0.05 coins and won the jackpot, your individual prize amount would be 100 coins rather than 1,000 coins.
Return to Player
In line with most similar online bingo games, Picture has an RTP of over 80% which is more than satisfactory for a game in this category.
The point of playing online bingo, other than attempting to win real cash of course, is to have fun and so the symbol idea in place of numbers here and the choice of three themes really does tick a few boxes.
Picture Bingo is cheap to play, offers a fair jackpot and RTP and provides great entertainment along the way so all in all, there is nothing not to like!
