Five Reel Bingo
Five Reel Bingo Slots
The opening sequence of this slot shows some people playing a game of bingo, with a caller taking the balls from a metal cage. This did raise the question of whether this would be some clever bingo-slot hybrid, or simply a slot with an old people playing bingo type of theme. The answer is both. There is the base game, which is very much a standard 5 reel slot. This does feature people playing bingo, though with the element of gentle humour for which Rival Gaming is well known. There is also a separate bingo-based bonus round. Though your actual involvement in this is somewhat limited, there is at least the potential for some big wins here.
Graphics-wise, the screen is dominated by the colourful logo. The ‘Five Reel’ part is gold, with the word bingo being made up of coloured balls. Those same balls with the word bingo can be found on the reels, where they trigger the bonus game if you complete the spelling. The line markers at the side of the reels are also bingo balls, and the spin button a white ball.
The symbols on the reels are a strange mix. I can understand many of them, including the banknotes, bingo cards, marker pen and bingo caller (and of course the players). The one I cannot understand is the troll toy with purple hair – maybe you need to be a ‘bingo insider’ to get this reference?
There are plenty of small animations, and a jolly tune playing in the background. The balls in the logo will occasionally bounce while you play – giving this slot a lively feel.
