How To Play Bingo Blast
When we first saw Bingo Blast - which shouldn't be confused with Buzz Bingo Blast - we instantly thought of Tombola's Pulse. The site of seeing numbered balls on a mobile screen automatically made us think it's the same game. However the two games are worlds apart. Bingo Blast is a 90 ball game and uses traditional bingo cards. The big difference between this version and other games is the speed of ball delivery. Essentially Blast cuts to the chase and tries to deliver a full house winner up to 3 or 4 times faster than any other 90 ball games. It sounds confusing but it's actually quite easy.
The Bingo Blast game is a 90 ball game and for the most part plays in exactly the same way as every other 90 ball game. The aim for you as the player is to get a full house by matching the number calls with the numbers on your ticket. However instead of sitting waiting for each call a whole bunch of numbers are fired out during what is called the first blast. Any numbers within this blast that match those on your purchased tickets will be shown in orange. Other numbers will be purple. After the first blast your tickets will be instantly updated to reflect any crossed out numbers.
Full House Prizes
The first blast of numbers is followed by a second blast of numbers and the same process takes place. Any matched numbers are shown in orange and these will be marked off on your tickets. Once the tickets are updated the game then continues in the more familiar manner. One ball at a time, blasted from left to right will appear on the screen. The balls continued to be called at fast pace until there's a full house winner. Note that there are no one line or two line winners!
Ticket prices start at 1p but typically expect to pay 2p or 5p a game. Occasionally you may find some options where tickets cost 10p. Pre-buy is available and the max tickets you can purchase range from 30 to 50 per game. There isn't a chatroom though and this does make the Pragmatic Play platform feel a little sterile. However Bingo Blast is designed for mobile play where chat is probably not a massive requirement for most players. This is a true speed bingo game as you'll find that a new Bingo Blast gets underway every couple of minutes. This means you can play almost 30 times during an hour.
Pragmatic Play say that with Bingo Blast they've brought "the most entertaining part of the game is brought to the player much quicker". Essentially they've done this by taking away the initial calls that guide players through one line and two line prizes as they build up towards a full house. However we wonder whether this is what players want? When we've played we quite enjoy the tension and frustation of watching the number calls, seeing matched numbers and that feeling of 1TG regardless of whether it's for a line or a full house.
Cutting to the chase and seeing if you've going to win full house seems to negate the bingo game and the thrill of the chase. Why not just issue every player with a unique number and call one ball. Whoever matches the number wins. In our view that's the same thing. However it is a speedy game and whilst most speed bingo games are 30, 36 or 40 ball it's nice to see someone try it at 90. We also like the fact that bingo tickets are reasonably priced too. We're not sure if Bingo Blast will fire up Pragmatic Play's product but it's a start and hopefully there's more innovation to come. Bingo Blast can be found on numerous sites including Crown Bingo (LeoVegas), Flip Flop Bingo (Nektan) and Dove Bingo (Jumpman).
