It is not very clear how the name Roaring Twenties Bingo is connected to the game, but in the ultimate analysis that is not very important. Roaring Twenties Bingo is an online casino game from the software provider Realtime Gaming (RTG). It is not a game played at bingo halls where players compete to finish the patterns first. This is a game played by one player. If he gets certain patterns within the stipulated number of balls then he is paid out as per the pay table.
Roaring Twenties Bingo is a game meant for the serious no frills player. The player can play up to hundred cards in one draw and can set the auto play to 100 draws. This leads to a whopping 10,000 cards without manual intervention. All 100 cards cannot be displayed on the screen at the same time. Four cards are displayed in large size and six cards at a time in smaller size. To see more than ten cards the scroll up or down arrows need to be used. Some online casino bingo games offer features like changing a particular card if the player does not like the numbers, but such frills are not available in RTG Roaring Twenties Bingo.
Because of the large number of cards and draws two sets of up and down keys are provided for setting these parameters. The outer set changes the number in tens and the inner set in units. This is a useful facility. If the player wants 44 cards he does not have to click the up key 44 times. He clicks the outer up key 4 times and the inner up key 4 times and he is through. The amount that the player can wager per card varies from $0.01 to $5.00.
RTG Roaring Twenties is based on the 90 ball bingo format. The cards contain 25 numbers randomly chosen and arranged in a 5 x 5 matrix. Actually there are 91 balls – 90 balls bearing the usual numbers and one wild ball. When the wild ball is drawn the central number on the card is automatically hit. 48 balls are drawn in total. If any of the patterns shown in the payout table is hit on the cards then the appropriate payout is credited to the player's account.
One additional feature available in RTG Roaring Twenties Bingo is the Extra Ball Replay. It has to be activated, if required, before the main game is started. It doubles the initial bet and provides five extra balls, making the total number of balls drawn equal to 53. The payouts are made as per the original bet per card. The advantage is that the extra five balls increase the chances of completing a pay table pattern.
There are three progressive jackpots offered in RTG Roaring Twenties Bingo. The Maxi Progressive Jackpot pays out if all 25 numbers on the card are hit. In the case of multiple cards with all numbers hit the Maxi Progressive Jackpot pays for only one card. The other cards pay out 10,000 times the bet per card. The Major and Minor Jackpots are like the random jackpots of the RTG Real Series Slots. They can hit randomly after any draw.
Roaring Twenties Bingo can be played at RTG online casinos like Cherry Red, Rushmore, Aladdin's Gold and Club World.
