Paddy Power Bingo
Paddy Power is a big name in the gaming industry, and having already succeeded in bringing Paddy Power sports betting and Paddy Power poker to the world, they now do online bingo players the same favour with Paddy Power Bingo. The home page alone is impressive, boasting some massive bingo jackpots (the Gold Room jackpot stood at over £51,000 at the time of writing) and a list of recent winners that made us want to sign up for a piece of the action right away.
If you already have an account with a Paddy Power site then you can use the same account with Paddy Power Bingo, otherwise you'll need to sign up from scratch. This is an easy process - just click on the JOIN NOW sign on the home page and follow the instructions, providing your name, address and other details as you are asked for them. There is no software to download here because the Paddy Power Bingo game takes place in a web browser window, so once you have some money in your account you're ready to start playing.
There are two versions of the online bingo game at Paddy Power Bingo; the site boasts both 75 ball bingo and traditional 90 ball bingo. Each game of 90 ball bingo offers three prizes - one for the first player to get a line, a bigger one for the first player to get two lines and the highest prize for the first person to get a "full house" by covering all of the numbers on a ticket. Whilst in the 75 ball bingo rooms at Paddy Power Bingo there are five chances to win when you play multi-line bingo.
Whichever Paddy Power Bingo room you choose to play in, the game layout is attractive and tidy. Game information (prize amounts, account balance, etc.) appears in a vertical rectangle on the left of your screen. The Paddy Power bingo cards occupy about half of the screen centrally, with a chat window underneath. A vertical panel is reserved for advertising and important announcements.
One thing we love here at Paddy Power Bingo is the ability to "zoom out" so that you can see more of your bingo cards at the same time. You may need to zoom back in to see specific numbers, but zooming out gives a great overview and it's a nice feature. Other options allow you to choose your daubing style and colour, have your tickets sorted, mute the caller and, as you would expect, to have your cards daubed automatically if you so desire..
Chat is very friendly and there are plenty of chat-based games that enhance the Paddy Power Bingo experience, but if you fancy something completely different you can also play roulette, slot machines and other games - all are presented very stylishly and will amuse you for hours.
With the Paddy Power brand being famous for bringing so many good thinks to online sports bettors and poker player, we had high expectations that it would do the same for online bingo players. Fortunately, we weren't at all disappointed, and would recommend Paddy Power Bingo to anyone who enjoys playing traditional 90 ball bingo and the ever popular 75 ball bingo.
