Bingo has always been a popular social game. With the advent of online gambling it was a matter of time before dedicated bingo halls came into existence in cyberspace. Most online casinos have online bingo portals where bingo can be played in its pristine form or with innovations. Players compete against each other to be the first to complete their cards. But some software providers have developed fixed odds games based on bingo in which the players wager against the online casino. Playtech is one such software provider and its bingo based game is Pop Bingo.
Conceptually the objective of finishing the card ahead of the other competitors has been transformed into finishing the card with fewer balls drawn. The fewer the balls drawn the larger will the payout be. For this purpose the numbers of balls drawn have been clubbed into groups. Actually the balls pop out from a frying pan like pop corn and are therefore referred to as pops in Playtech Pop Bingo. Completing the card within 40 pops has a payout of 10,000 to 1; within 45 pops has a payout of 1,000 to 1; within 50 pops has a payout of 100 to 1; within 57 pops has a payout of 50 to 1; within 60 pops has a payout of 10 to 1; within 65 pops has a payout of 5 to 1; within 70 pops has a payout of 4 to 1; within 75 pops has a payout of 2.5 to 1; within 80 pops has a payout of 2 to 1; within 82 pops has a payout of 1.75 to 1; within 84 pops has a payout of 1.5 to 1; within 86 pops has a payout of 1.25 to 1 and within 88 pops has a payout of 0.5 to 1. If more than 88 pops are required then the player does not win anything.
The main choice that the player makes in Playtech Pop Bingo is the bet amount. The bet amount varies from $0.10 to $100. With a bet of $100 the maximum payout is $1 million. The player cannot choose the numbers on the card as in online keno. But can replace the card any number of times by clicking on the New Card button. Mathematically minded players will realize that one card is as good as another because the pops are drawn randomly. But there are players who look for lucky numbers on their cards or for certain card configurations and they can try a find a card that suits them.
Because fixed odds arcade games are constructed in a simple manner they have to be visually appealing and Playtech Pop Bingo scores high marks on this count. The card and the operating buttons are placed to the left of the screen. The master sheet containing all 90 numbers is placed on the right. Below that is the animated frying pan from which balls pop out and stick to numbers on the master sheet. Above the master sheet is the payout table.
When the Play button is clicked, several things happen on the screen. The counter rapidly moves to 90 as numbers are called. The portion of the payout table that is valid for the current number gets highlighted. If the number called is on the card the pop on the master sheet turns red and the number on the card gets circled. Hence the situation is amply made clear to the player. When all the numbers on the card are marked the payout is announced. Pop Bingo can be played at all Playtech online casinos like Casino Tropez and Omni Casino.
