Our third visit to Playspace takes us to familiar ground - and that's bingo. If you enjoy playing the game but perhaps want to avoid the usual big brands then this is a nice alternative. Playspace Bingo is also great if you want the fun of bingo but perhaps without the cost too.
To access Playspace Bingo - known as Loco Bingo - you need to register and login. This can be done direct or through Facebook. You can also play via mobile apps. Once inside the lobby you'll be offered to purchase bingo cards for the next game. Like with Ludo and Domino you don't have to pay to play the game. When you register with Playspace Bingo you'll automatically receive 100 coins. You earn more coins by winning games, taking challenges and logging in daily.
One thing worth nothing is that you will automatically buy one card for the next bingo game whenever you're logged in. Each card will cost you 5 coins. You can purchase a maximum of six cards per game plus you can also choose a lucky ball. If the lucky ball comes up during the game then you get a bonus boost. If you run out of coins then you can always purchase extra via the online store. It will cost £1.57 for 500 coins - enough for 100 games if playing one card or 16 games if you max out.
The game itself is a 90 ball one and it's graphically brilliant. It's all very clear and well put together. The game is accompanied by a Spanish guitar soundtrack that's quite nice - it gives you a real holiday feeling. The numbers are called clearly and are accompanied with the traditional calls. In many respects this could do well as a pay to play game. Perhaps in the future we'll see such a thing.
Playspace Bingo has all the other features that you'd expect from a bingo site. There's a chat area, although to be fair this was a little quiet when we played. You can switch off the sounds and music too if you want to a quiet game or two. One nice feature was that you can see which players are getting close to winning and how far you are behind. We also especially like the flaming bingo card to indicate that you were just one number from winning on one line, two lines or a full house.
Like Ludo, Domino and other Playspace games the premise is social gaming. This means you can gift players cards if you so wish. You can also use your coins to enhance your game by purchasing badges, good luck charms and blocking adverts. Another beauty of this version of bingo is that you can play against players around the world. Overall we were impressed and it'll be interesting to see how this develops. We'd like to see more rooms and possibly variations of the game (e.g 75 ball) but if you want a free bingo game away from the temptations to spend a lot then this is worth a look.
