The new bingo side games released by Microgaming in February constitute an interesting mix. There is a high power branded slot game, the mandatory fruit machine slot game and a feature rich blackjack game.

Hellboy, which has already won immense popularity in online casinos, is being launched as a bingo side game. It features the super hero Hellboy from Dark Horse comics along with other heroes and villains. Apart from high payouts players will love the Super Mode Bonus in which three wild symbols are held fixed. Players will also be on the lookout for three or more scatter symbols appearing anywhere on the reels because this will trigger the exciting four level bonus round. The lucky players will be able to find the tunnels to advance to higher levels. The unlucky ones will enter a collapsed tunnel and have to exit the bonus round.

The fruit machine based bingo side game released by Microgaming is Thor Blimey. This is a 3 reel and 5 win line slot with all the features one expects in fruit machines. These include nudge variants of gamble and repeat, nudge bank holds and a turbo gamble option. On the screen players will be enthralled by the burly bearded Vikings and the Norse maidens along with symbols like thunderous hammers, longboats and flagons of ale.

Bingo players who like plenty of options should go for Premier Blackjack. This Microgaming blackjack variant offers a choice from eight different table colors and also a number of card designs and play speeds. There are four different sets of rules to choose from. These include multi hand blackjack tables, blackjack games with bonus bets, multiple win games on the high streak tables and the ever popular Hi-Lo blackjack tables.

The other bingo side games released in February are the video slots Age of Discovery and Dogfather. Age of Discovery will take bingo players to the adventurous journeys on uncharted seas and reward them with wild features and bonus games. Dogfather has a predictable mutt mafia theme with heinous hounds on the reels. Fleas and fire hydrants are both scatter symbols. The fleas trigger free spins with tripled payouts, whereas the hydrants trigger the bonus game on the second screen.

Neill Whyte, Head of Bingo at Microgaming said, "It's not only 'eyes down' in the world of Bingo, but increasingly 'eyes to the side', with bingo side games fast becoming an integral part of UK Bingo sites." He added that the sophisticated side games provided by Microgaming enhance the value of the bingo operators by making their sites "complete one stop shops of fun, entertainment and, indeed, reward".

I have yet to see what the fascination is with bingo... I think that I might be too young still to appreciate the game of bingo. Maybe in a few more decades I'll really be able to enjoy playing this game but right now I really can't be bothered with it.
