Play Age Of The Gods Bingo - 90 Ball Bingo
Article Updated On 19th June 2020
Whilst Gala and Mecca were releasing Hot House Bingo and Better Odds Bingo respectively, another variant on the popular numbers game was launched in September of 2018. Age Of The Gods Bingo was a new 90 ball game that is still accessible at selected Virtue Fusion brands including William Hill, The Sun and Paddy Power. The Age Of The Gods theme has been incredibly successful in the slots department. But hows does it work as a bingo game? And will the luck of the Gods be on your side as you pursue the jackpot prize?
- Type Of Game: 90 Ball Bingo
- Cost: 10p/15p
- Open: 24/7
- Jackpots: None
- Extras: None
- Special Features: Arena Of The Gods Feature For Full House Winner
Age Of The Gods Bingo is based on the popular Age Of The Gods slots series which has generated over 16 titles. More recently the series has moved from Greek Mythology to Norse with the launch of titles Ways Of Thunder and King Of Asgard. But how does AOTG work as a bingo room? When you first open up the game you may be greeted with quite a dramatic musical introduction during the countdown to eyes down. Frustratingly after that things go a little bit flat. This is because Age Of The Gods is just another 90 ball bingo game with a bit of branding.
Full House Winner Feature
The room itself has a look fit for The Gods with gold trim around the various sections of the game. At the top you'll find the calls whilst your tickets appear in the centre of the screen. To play you first need to purchase tickets and these typically cost 10p. You can purchase between 6 and 72 tickets per game. As this is a typical 90 ball game. The calls are made as usual until there are one line, two line and full house winners. Winners are announced with a bolt of electricty sound for added Greek Mythological effect.
For most players this will be it! This is because only the full house winner gets any additional benefit. On winning a full house The Age Of The Gods feature comes in to play. With The Age Of The Gods features you could win one of four prizes that are offered by Zeus, Hades, Athena and Ares. The FH winner is invited to turn coins to try and match three of the same symbol. The twist here is that some pay just the winner, whilst others share the pot between the winner and the rest of the roomies. For example Zeus pays 100% to the community whilst Hades gives 100% to the winner.
The problem with the full house winner feature is that no one else in the room sees the outcome or indeed feels part of the process. We don't understand why the end result can't be made like Deal Or No Deal Bingo when things are a little more transparent. Even a "FH Winner chose Hades" announcement would be better. This lack of final feature interaction makes Age Of The Gods bingo just feel like any other 90 ball game. Additionally - and bizarely - there are no spins to be won or anything that relates the bingo room to the popular Age Of The God slot.
We so would like to love Age Of The Gods Bingo but dramatic incidental music, electrical sounds and the occasional graphical hining towards the Greek Gods theme really isn't enough to create a new and exciting bingo variant. In truth it all feels a little bit lazy, especially when you consider other options that are available to players. This isn't the first slots themed bingo room launched by Playtech/Virtue Fusion but for our money the Rainbow Riches Bingo option is a better choice.
