Bingo is no longer a game for retirees to be played in dingy community halls and announced by laconic mouth breathers with corny catch phrases. It is now an advanced online experience complete with cheap buy ins and an array of jackpots, including progressive jackpots. Online bingo sites are popping up all over the Net. Each one offers great sign up bonuses and have enticing jackpots and promotions to keep you interested. These sites don’t just solely deal in bingo, though. Tye also have an array of online pokies, blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker, keno, video poker and pull tabs/scratchies.
If, however, you are used to playing bingo the old fashioned way and are concerned about missing out on the social aspect by playing bingo online, worry no more. Team Bingo is an interactive, social option that boasts lots of prizes and progressive jackpots with affordable buy ins.
What is Team Bingo?
Team Bingo is a competitive tournament with a twist to your average bingo game. Each game requires a certain pattern to be filled which is highlighted on your cards, as are the numbers required to fill that pattern. The first person to completely cover that pattern with the numbers that have been called, wins.
Team Bingo is offered at www.AussieDollarBingo.com and www.BingoAustralia.com and is held every Saturday and Sunday between 7.00PM and 9.00PM. You must be registered by 6.00PM to qualify. You can either register with a team of five friends or register and be placed in a team and make some new friends to play with.
Total registration fee costs AUD $27.88 which covers a $25 buy-in and a $2.88 registration fee. Your buy-in entitles you to 12 cards per game and playing 22 games in total. Considering most cards during non-tournament games cost around AUD $0.20 each, you are looking at great value here. 100 per cent of the total buy-in for the tournament will be divvied up between the first, second and third-placed teams.
- First-placed team wins 50% of the total
- Second-placed team wins 35% of the total
- Third-placed team wins 15% of the total
Here lies the twist: The winning team is determined by which team has collectively won the most games. So every game you win contributes to your team’s total, and increases your chances of winning overall. If there is a tie between two teams, the winner is determined by which team won the first game. Team Bingo is a great way to get to know people across the online bingo community.
