When it comes to themed games, online bingo players have quite the choice at the various different sites on the Internet today. In this article, we’re looking at just a couple but if we’re honest, many are quite similar in how they award the bonus feature to players.
The two we have opted for are TV themed online bingo games but there are others that have no relevance to popular small screen reality shows or quizzes available too.
TV Themed Online Bingo Games
These are listed in no particular order of favourtism, they are simply the games we like the best that are currently available.
Take Me Out Bingo
This game is available on the Gamesys platform at JackpotJoy. As the name suggests, it’s themed around the popular ITV dating show and the bingo caller, like the host of the show, is Paddy McGuinness.
It’s a 90 ball game and the one line, two line and full house prizes are paid out in the normal way.
The bonus feature is based around the 30 ‘girls’ and their lights. As their numbers are called in the main game, lights are turned off. If 18 or more are left lit at the end of the game, then everyone with tickets in the game takes a share of the community jackpot.
In 2012 Mecca Bingo launched the XFactor Bingo and this too is a 90 ball game. Like the others before it, the one line, two line and full house prizes are paid in the same way and there is a bonus game to be played.
When you start the game, you are asked to pick a category exactly like those the judges are allocated in the TV series.
Each category has an allocated set of numbers. For example boys are 2 to 23, girls are 24 to 45 etc. Each number called represents a vote for that category. As one line is called, the two categories with the lowest votes face the Judges and one is eliminated.
The same happens for the two line win. When the full house has been called, the remaining category with the most votes will be the winner and all players who picked them will share in the X Factor Prize Pot.
Other TV themed games available include:
• Coronation Street Bingo
• Tipping Point Bingo
• Emmerdale Bingo
We’re hoping to one day see Eastenders Bingo!
