If you’ve ever paid a visit to an online bingo site, then you’ve probably been inundated by the number of bingo minigames or bingo/slots that are available to play. These can be a fun and quick alternative to playing a full game of bingo, but with so many to pick from how do you know which ones to choose and how exactly do they work?
So, What Are They?
Very basically bingo minigames are a combination of slots and traditional bingo. In actuality, they have more in common with straight up slots, but they are dressed up and styled after bingo, so you’ll see lots of things that are familiar from your usual bingo games. Bingo minigames work very differently from game to game and site to site, but there are a few universal principles that you should keep in mind. The vast majority of these games are decided immediately from the get-go, so don’t worry too much what is flashing up on the screen, whether you’ve won or not is determined as soon as you start. Some games will even let you disable the animations and sounds and will immediately display whether you one or not.
Are They Worth Playing?
It’s really all down to what you’re looking for.
If you’d like a little something extra to play between your full games of bingo, then these can be a good choice. They have the same sort of feel as bingo but are much faster to play.
They can also be good if you like the social aspect of bingo. Lots of sites offer a range of bingo minigames that are incorporated into their chat systems so that you can play and win directly with your friends.
On the other hand, bingo minigames can be a very, very quick way to burn through your money, since the play times are so low, and you can start a new one at any time with the click of a button.
Like anything in the world of bingo and online gambling, it’s about finding the balance between what you find rewarding and what might be tempting fate a bit too much.
