Playing cards and variations on the bingo game are nothing new. Tombola for example have had Cinco on their site for many years now. Essentially it's a 52 ball game where the aim is to get a full house of five matching cards. Following in Cinco's footsteps is a brand new room over at 888 Ladies Bingo. It's called Flash Fives!
Flash Fives like Cinco uses the 52 cards in a playing deck, and also like Cinco the aim is to match five cards to get a full house. The main difference between the two games is that you can only play Flash Fives at 888 Ladies Bingo between 6pm and 1am daily. Tombola has a number of Cinco rooms open throughout the day.
The beauty of the 52-5 game is that it's pretty quick, so ideal if you like speed when you play. There's only one winner and that can mean big jackpots if there's a lot of players. The ticket price at 888 Ladies Bingo is currently 50p, which may put off some players. However we guess there may be scope to follow Tombola's example and have multiple rooms but different ticket prices?
It's nice to see new variations on the bingo theme, although it'd have been great to see something we've not seen before. However the launch of Flash Fives is perhaps good news for 888 - as the room is available at other brands including Posh - and bad news for Tombola. Tombola have always been the stand out site because of it's games like Cinco, Pirates and Rollercoaster.
Now it seems that other platforms are starting to not only catch up with them in terms of innovation, but surpassing them with more inventive games. In the past year we've seen the likes of TOWIE Bingo, Emmerdale Bingo, Coronation Street Bingo and Emoji Bingo launched. In that same period there's been little from the Tombola camp in terms of innovation - Pulse being the last addition.
Flash Fives is currently available at a handful of 888/Cassava powered brands, but we expect it will be rolled out to others including Foxy, Wink, Iceland and Moon in the future.
