Born in the USA Bingo Review
There is no limit to the number of players that can enter or play in the Born in the USA bingo room, unlike Spirit Twister which is limited to 25 players.
Before you enter the room, you can view the different types of games that are due to run and how they work. For example, Roll On Bingo a include extra prizes (such as lines and full houses) that can be won after the standard prizes have been awarded.

Prizes are awarded for creating lines, so to scoop the full house, you’d need to complete five lines.
How to play
Firstly, we suggest that you consult the daily schedule so that you can see which type of game you’d prefer to play (e.g. 5 Alive).
Next, you’ll need to buy your tickets via the pre-buy facility or upon entering the room.
Once ticket sales have closed, the game begins, and you’ll see your purchased tickets displayed in a window at the bottom of the screen.
As the numbers are announced, your tickets are checked for any matches, and the numbers are then automatically dabbed. Wins are paid as one line, two lines, three lines, four lines and five lines, so lots of chances to win.
Thanks to the way that the software is designed, you don’t need to keep track of your cards or prepare to shout “house” as it’s all done for you.
The Born in the USA bingo room features a progressive jackpot called the Lucky Cash Climber.
It can be won by calling the full house (i.e. all 5 lines) within 43 calls.
The jackpot is funded by 2% of all ticket sales and it seeds at £2,500.
When the jackpot is claimed, half of it is awarded to the winner and the other half is split between all the other players who’ve bought tickets for the winning game.
Graphics and Sounds
The games play on a simple background that uses an easy-to-understand layout.
Up in the left-hand corner, you have the room name and game name, and underneath these, you can see the number of players, the total prize pool, the value of the progressive jackpot, and any special features that are active such as 1&2TG. To the right of these, you can see which prize you are currently playing for (e.g. 4 lines).
Your tickets are presented at the bottom left, and you can scroll through them using the left and right arrows.
Up in the top-right corner, there’s a panel that is used for chat. Simply type your message or questions into the space at the bottom and include any emojis that you wish to use using the smiley face icon.
The bottom-right panel is used to play side games, and you can either browse the available selection or type-specific game names to search for your favourites.
The sound effects come courtesy of the male bingo caller who announces each ball as it’s randomly picked.
Born in the USA is a welcome addition to what’s already a great online bingo site.
We love to see the balance between 90-ball and 75-ball rooms finally being addressed, and thanks to the way that the prizes are awarded (via lines rather than patterns), it’s easy for beginners to play too.
The addition of a progressive bingo jackpot makes the room potentially even more rewarding.
Currently, you can only access the Born in the USA room at Mecca Bingo, and that’s no bad thing as the site also boasts one of the biggest collections of bingo games you’ve ever seen!
For example, you can play Rainbow Riches Bingo, Fluffy Favourites Bingo and even The Voice Bingo, as well as tons of online slots, Slingo games, casino games and instant wins.
