A Guide on Playing 52-5 Bingo at Kingdom of Bingo

I love playing bingo and I've been playing ever-since I was 18 years old; a few times a week I'd either go to my local bingo hall or log in online, but I soon got bored of the same-old, same-old; numbers 1 to 90 (or 1 to 75) and daubing numbers to win...

...so, I was ecstatic to learn of the relatively new game at Kingdom of Bingo; 52-5 Bingo - the Dragonfish classic bingo game with a twist. Unlike 90-ball and 75-ball bingo games, this 52-5 bingo variant is played with playing cards instead of numbered bingo balls. Before you can play, you need to purchase your tickets, you do this in the normal way. A hand will feature 5 randomly chosen playing cards (jokers excluded) ...

...each player can purchase a minimum of 1 hand per game and a maximum of 5 hands per game. The RNG (random number generator) will call out playing cards from a standard deck of cards; 2 to through to Ace of all four suits (diamonds, clubs, spades and hearts). If the cards drawn match the cards on your hand, a chip will appear and cover that card in your hand. The first person to cover all five playing cards in one hand, will win the stated prize.

Prize Payout:

In most cases, the size of a game's payout is determined by the cost of the hand and the number of players who opted into that game. The higher the card price and the more players who join a game will mean a higher cash prize on offer. Occasionally, promotions are held which would see Kingdom of Bingo offering a fixed minimum prize, regardless of the number of players who participate and the price of the hands.

Some 52-5 Bingo games could have a progressive jackpot attached, which are awarded when a player calls house (wins) within a certain number of calls...

...details on these jackpots can be found within the promotions tab.

Playing the Game:

Before purchasing hands, you need to fund your bingo account. The price of each hand is displayed clearly on each row of cards, before each game starts. Click the hands you wish to have in play and the cards will reveal themselves once purchased. After you purchase cards for a bingo game, the next step is to wait for the game to start.

You can keep track of the time left until the game starts by checking the buy time countdown, which appears in the top left corner of the bingo screen. New bingo games begin every few minutes, so you'll never be waiting long to play. If a player gets a full house on their bingo card, the game will end and a winning message will appear, including the names of the winners on every player screen.

What do you think of this hand-some (get it?) new game? Tell me your thoughts below.

    It's a bit like Tombola's Cinco game, but a little more fun! I love playing this game.
