Casino games are not the only games that you can play online that offers a large jackpot for players to win. Bingo is another popular online game where you can win big money.
There are a couple of ways to play and win these jackpots at online bingo rooms. I will highlight the basics of jackpot bingo and several places that offer these games.
The average bingo jackpot is going to range between $/£/€ 1,000 up to 40,000 or more. Of course, the higher the jackpot gets, the less likely that someone will win it often.
The bingo jackpot can be in one of three forms:
1) There is a top money prize (jackpot) that must be won that session by someone who has bought bingo cards. This top prize usually isn’t more than 1,000 to 5,000. In order to have a bingo prize this large, a lot of bingo players must be participating. Some bingo sites will combine forces and link up their players for a really large prize. The largest of these are the £10,000 Super Bingo Linx that involves a lot of UK bingo websites.
2) There is a bingo jackpot that is progressive in nature. Every time that you purchase a bingo card in these special rooms, a small percentage will go to the jackpot. The largest of these is the Deal or No Deal Bingo Jackpot 90 ball room which is currently £38,756 at William Hill or the £42,116 jackpot at the Sun Seeker Bingo80 room at Bet365.
3) A lot of online bingo sites offer side games; the majority of the side games are going to be slots, fruit machines and video poker. Some of these games may also have a jackpot that you can win. Slots tend to have the largest jackpots because they don’t hit very often. The Clover Rollover recently had a large win of more than £4,000,000 but that win reset the total back to £100,000 where it continues to grow again. Any jackpot of $/£/€ 1,000,000 are more likely to win because more people will be playing (assuming that the casino you are playing at is legitimate).
How to Win a Bingo Jackpot
First thing is first. How do you win a bingo jackpot? This is a simple question to answer, but that doesn’t make the likelihood that you win one any greater. I’m going to go through this in sections for each jackpot type that can be won.
Bingo Tournaments with Jackpots
When a bingo site offers a guaranteed jackpot, this means that one or more people are going to walk away with the amount guaranteed. For instance, the £10,000 Super Bingo Linx will have a £1,000 winner for 1 Line, a £2,000 winner for 2 lines and £7,000 for the Full House.
These are terms used with 90 ball bingo that are played in the UK and Europe. If you are more used to playing the traditional American style of 75 ball bingo, you won’t find as many of these large jackpots.
Simply put, online bingo is very popular in England and hasn’t taken off in the United States as much yet. That means there are going to be less people playing and therefore the jackpots will tend to be smaller.
Bingo Rooms with Jackpots
I’m going to use the Money Mountain Room at William Hill Bingo as an example of how these jackpots are won. Money Mountain is currently the biggest bingo jackpot that I could find. It is currently valued at just under £60,000.
In order to win it, you must call full house in 29 balls or less. Basically, calling full house in less than 40 is really good; that makes the odds of getting 29 very slim.
That means you have to get a ball called on your ticket more than 50% of the time. It is very statistically difficult to do. Other jackpots like this can be won with 31, 33, 35 or even less than 40 calls. The higher the number of calls, the easier the jackpot will be to win.
