Playtech introduces U.K. style Bingo - Tuesday 12th of April 2005

Playtech launched a new UK-style, 90 ball online bingo game this week that complements its established US-style 75 ball game which was introduced 18 months back.

The supplier claims that the new game, which delivers the familiar features of a typical UK bingo hall in an online package, will be implemented first by the Bingo land network, which already uses Playtech's integrated 75-ball bingo suite.

The 90-ball bingo variant has been tailored for the UK market and is aimed both at Playtech's existing licensees on the mainland - especially the growing number of brand-name operations that have launched online gaming platforms on the Playtech system and are looking to diversify - and at online bingo operators in general.

The ticket format of the 90-ball game differs somewhat from the 75-ball game. Each ticket has 3 rows of numbers - in each game there are 3 winners: the first to complete one row, the first to complete 2 rows and the first to complete 3 rows (the entire ticket). The new game also features authentic London accented dealer voices and traditional British bingo call-outs ('Duck and Dive, 25', 'Two Fat Ladies, 88', etc.), for an authentic feel.

Game features include: 3-D animated graphics, fully featured chat with integral player photos and private chat facility, real-time player access to graphical game history, selective buy-ahead feature, auto-play, auto-daub and 'best card to front' features, and card manager plays even when the player is offline.
