Play Friends Bingo - 90 Ball Bingo
Article Updated On 31st August 2019
Whilst there's a lot of doom and gloom across the former Cozy Games network, there is some good news. It's newest addition, Foxy Bingo, is working hard to re-establish itself amongst the "goto" places to play online. They've recently launched a new TV show themed bingo room - and it's based on the hit comedy series, Friends.
Friends was a popular US comedy show that ran for ten seasons between 1994 and 2004. It featured the lives of six friends living in New York and was responsible for making Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer global superstars. It now has a cult status and still watched by fans old and new. Foxy Bingo have decided it's the perfect TV show to convert into a bingo game.
- Type Of Game: 90 Ball Bingo
- Cost: 5p to 50p
- Open: 24/7
- Jackpots: Central Perk Jackpot
- Extras: Bingo cards in Friends style font
- Special Features: Exclusive to Foxy Bingo
How To Play Friends Bingo
Friends Bingo is a 90 Ball game that's exclusive to Foxy. The room itself is very basic and to get the "Friends" look the bingo cards use the same font that's associated with the show. A very small picture of Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Chandler and Ross is in the top left of the room whilst the bingo cards reside atop a background of New York.
The game itself plays just like any 90 ball game. The numbers are called and marked off until their are winners of one line, two lines and a full house. We had hoped that the bingo calls would be done in a Friends style - perhaps even by Joey - but instead the familiar northern twang of "Foxy" presides over the proceedings. This does negate the Friends element somewhat.
Central Perk Jackpot
The big feature of Friends Bingo is the Central Perk Ticket. This is an additional bingo card that comes into play at the end of the game. If the number called for full house is unmarked on the Cental Perk Ticket then the FH winner gets an added prize. The prize amount is determined by whether the number completes a line or full house on the Central Perk Ticket.
Any number crossed off the Central Perk Ticket results in a win of £5. However, completing a line results in a £50 win whilst two lines means a prize of £100. Complete the full house and there's a £500 jackpot to take home. The jackpot ticket is the same for all players and it's reset after the full house is won. If this kind of format sounds familiar then you'd be right. It's pretty much the same set-up as Gala's Coronation Street Bingo!
TV themed bingo rooms can be popular with players and Foxy are happy to jump on that bandwagon. This isn't the first time either as they had games featuring TOWIE when they were on the Dragonfish platform. Friends is definitely a move "up market" although it's obviously not as modern as something like The Chase or Tipping Point.
The game itself does lack a bit of oomph. The Central Perk Jackpot is a nice addition, but we don't feel the "Friends" angle. The look is definitely Friends, but Foxy could do with some classic clips or a relevant caller to just give the game more polish. That all done, it's actually good to see something new emerge on the ElectraWorks platform.
