When is bingo not bingo? The answer is an easy one and it is when it’s a slot. Bingo fans who also love a dabble on slot games will really be overjoyed when playing this bingo-themed slot from Microgaming. It’s great fun to play and gives its players plenty of chances to get some tasty wins.
This is a five-reel game with three rows of symbols that have a retro feel to them but jiggled with a bit to fit the theme. There are just the nine paylines and this game is a little bit different from a fair few others out there as it plays from both left to right and right to left. The nine paylines aren’t fixed and the maximum stake here is £90.
If you like pink then this game will really suit you as it’s dominated by that colour. On each side of the reels there are bingo balls. There’s also a soundtrack that isn’t too irritating but if you’re playing this for a fair amount of time, muting it might become an option to pursue.
Symbols in the game include a fair bit of fruit making a welcome reappearance. They fit in well with the theme though as they are designed to look like bingo balls. These include strawberries, lemons, oranges and blueberries. It’s the blueberry symbol you want to keep an eye out for as this can win you 5000x your line bet if you can get five on an activated payline.
The wild symbol in ‘Sassy Bingo’ is the Golden 7 Ball and this can substitute for other symbols to get you some handy wins. Also look out for the Sassy Bingo logo which helps trigger the bonus game and can’t be replaced by the wild symbol.
If you want some time away from the reels or just get fed up of having to continually press the spin button, set an autoplay This can have you playing up to 25 automated spins before you have to start doing some work again.
Make sure you go through the paytable and have some free games. This will build up your experience of a game that is a little bit different from others you’ll be playing.
If you can get three or more of the Sassy Bingo logo symbol anywhere on the reels this gets you into the bonus round. Now this really is totally different from the usual diet of free spins and pick ’em games. You’re given six bingo cards and then the numbers start getting called out. How much you win depends on whether you can complete one, two or three lines on your cards. The top prize comes your way if you can manage a Full House.
This slot also includes a gamble feature but it’s a little bit different from those you’re probably used to. You get a chance to play this when getting a winning combination. If you want to just ignore the offer and treat it like someone who talks when the bingo numbers are being called. However, if you do take up the option then there’s the chance to double that win you’ve just had. Not a playing card or flashing ladder in sight here because for once the gamble feature is actually linked to the theme. The task here is to decide whether the next bingo ball number will be odd or even. Get it right and you double your win, get it wrong and you’ve just lost it. As usual this is a risky option so be careful with it.
There’s plenty to like about this game. Bingo fans will adore it and those of you wanting to play a slot that has some different bonus rounds and gamble feature will be pleased too. Definitely recommended.
