Live dealer games from the likes of Evolution Gaming, NetEnt and others have exploded onto the iGaming scene, but there hasn't been much of a place for live bingo - until now. With offices based in Russia, Latvia and Malta, Bingo Boom delivers a collection of real money live bingo, slots and other casino games streaming from Latvia around the clock, 7 days a week. From where we sit, the live bingo and live slots are definitely among the most intriguing offerings.
We noticed the company start gaining traction as a result of partnerships with content aggregators, such as BetConstruct, and several Russian-focused online casinos. Despite the impressive bingo offering, we've yet to see the games available on any online bingo sites for money - at least not as of the date of this review (April 2017). Developed in Russia, the software is available in the land-based sector as well as online. Additional partnerships include Novomatic and Quinel.
Games are accessible from desktop computers, smartphones and tablet, thanks to the use of HTML5 technology. All of the live games are accessible online, while a few of the other products may be bespoke or found in the retail market. Customized options may be requested, including jackpot systems across the product suite. Although the studios are based in Latvia, all dealers speak in English only; however, the software supports other languages. Ball machines are operating in real time via a certified system to ensure fair play and randomness.
Live Bingo: To get started, you'll first select a Bingo Boom room, each of which is color-coded by gold, yellow, red, green and blue. Tickets are available in various denominations, ranging from $0.05 to $20, and cards are available in strips featuring 6 tickets each. Hand pick your own individually or buy in bulk with a slider bar to adjust the number of tickets. It's common for bingo games to support a certain number of players, but this doesn't apply here as there is no limit to the number of players allowed per game. In terms of the actual games, a machine is used to draw the balls with a live caller announcing each number drawn. The game has 90 balls, but plays only 70. The look and feel are comparable to a standard online bingo room minus the chat functions and mini-games. Bingo Boom 2 is a variation that introduces the Super Bingo round presenting players with a chance to score bigger wins and jackpots.
The provider offers another variation called Bingo 37. It's played on a horizontal game table marked with 1, 2 and 3 lines, with the twist of even and odd bets.
Keno Boom: 80 balls are in the machine and 20 are drawn per game. While games are in play, a dragon animation reveals each number called. All 20 numbers may be hand-selected or automatically generated. The more matches you get, the higher the payout, which may be different for each operator.
Live Slots: This is a new, and perhaps the most interesting, concept. Players step up to a real gaming machine such as Novomatic's, Gaminator. The atmosphere was designed to mimic real slot play in an actual land-based casino. It creates the experience of playing on real gaming machines, but there is no live person spinning on your behalf. The player has full control of the game via the software. As with all games, mobile access was a priority, thus reaching a wider market. Gaminator is well-known for featuring multiple games per machine, and the same is true with this live product. The user interface presents players with a selection of slot games featuring 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 paylines and the opportunity to win mega jackpots.
Aztec Gold Roulette: Marrying the concept of live balls with multiple roulette betting options, this game features 40 balls with 5 drawn per game. Place your chips on any of the numbers on the board and/or even/odd. The 3D intro takes players deep into an Aztec temple in search of riches, but watch out for a series of traps. As for the gameplay, a colorful wheel allows players to place bets American roulette-style with two double zeros. While on a mobile device, there are two modes: portrait, which shows the dealer and the wheel, and gaming, which provides a view of bets placed.
Lucky Line: Head to the monkey king's island filled with hidden treasures. As the numbers are called, players receive payouts when 3, 4, 5, or 6 falls in succession on one line, and the jackpot is won when more than 6 numbers fall in line.
Money Wheel: Bingo Boom was the first Russian provider to bring live Money Wheel online. This version sees players place bets on 2, 4, 6, 12, 16, 24 or $. Betting denominations include $1, $5, $10, $50 and $100, but they could be modified depending on the operator.
Live Poker: With the added bonus of a live dealer, the poker product is based on traditional Texas Hold'em. Two cards are dealt face down, known as hole cards, while an additional five are community cards dealt face up with rounds to check, bet or fold.
From Russia with Love: Based on Russian fairytales, this game features 31 balls, all of which are used in the game. The idea is to match symbols for a payout. Multiplier symbols are hidden and increase winnings if found.
Additional products include Marine Boy, Battleship and Naval Battle.
