Play Better Odds Bingo - 50 Ball Bingo
Article Updated On 8th November 2020
Have you stopped enjoying playing online bingo? Are you getting fed up with the same roomies winning? If yes then Mecca Bingo might have the answer. They've just introduced a brand new room to their site. It's called BOB and that stands for Better Odds Bingo. It's a 50 ball game but it's a fair and square game where everyone has the same chance of winning.
According to Mecca Bingo, Better Odds Bingo rooms will only ever be limited to 25 players. All players in the room will have just 10 tickets each and tickets are affordable. We're not quite sure on the latter promise as it costs from 50p a play (10 x 5p tickets) - that's OK for one game, but with new games starting every few minutes then it can get costly.
Limited To 25 Players
When you login to BOB you can purchase 10 tickets for the next game. Note that you can't buy less than 10! The aim of the game is to mark off all 10 numbers on your card to win the full house. When we dropped in the prizes were around £7 and 18/19 players were in the room.
Because the BOB rooms are limited to just 25 players, then new rooms will open as the numbers increase. At time of writing there was just the one BOB room in action, which suggests that perhaps players want to chase bigger prizes rather than better odds? That said, it's early days for BOB so perhaps things will develop over time.
For example, the room may have a Jackpot prize - at least one is indicated when you're in the room. However, we couldn't find any details of how to win this Jackpot. We assume that there's probably a more expensive game during proceedings - and that a jackpot is won when house is called in a fix number of calls.
So is BOB really Better Odds Bingo? Well, yes it is mainly because everyone has the same number of tickets. However, that's not a particular big innovation. Other sites have run Fair & Square or Even Stevens games in the past.
Limiting the room size to 25 is an interesting approach too - but for this to really matter than BOB needs to be attracting 100s of players. Otherwise BOB is simply Even Stevens for the handful who are playing. Full marks to Mecca Bingo for trying something new as online bingo does need a shot in the arm.
