Brit 50 Bingo Review
Brit 50 is Sun Bingo’s answer to speed bingo. It takes around 1 and a half minutes to play each game as only 50 balls are used, and you only need to match 10 numbers to win.
Each ticket features a variety of items that are associated with Britain, and every game gives you the chance to win the full house prize by being the first player to complete your ticket.
To make things even more exciting, there’s a room-exclusive progressive jackpot that gives everyone a share of cash when it’s won.
You can also choose how much you wish to spend when you purchase your tickets, with the smallest amount being a mere 10p.
How to play
When you open the games lobby at Sun Bingo, look for the Brit 50 room then click on it to enter.
The first thing you’ll want to do is buy a ticket, and you should be aware that you can only buy one ticket for each game. You do, however, have the option to choose a stake size that suits your personal preference and budget. You can opt for 10p, 50p, £1 or £2, and the price of your ticket affects how much the full house prize is worth if you’re lucky enough to win it.
Once the game begins, you see and hear a series of numbers announced. Match all 10 numbers on your card, and you’re a full house winner!
The Brit 50 room at Sun Bingo is home to a dedicated progressive jackpot called the Crown Jewels Jackpot, and it’s awarded each time that a play calls a full house within 19 calls.
However, unlike some bingo progressive jackpot, it’s not just the full house winner that gets to claim a prize. In fact, the Brit 50 progressive jackpot shares 100% of its total among the community, which means that everyone who has bought a ticket for the winning game gets to take home a share of it.
As it’s a progressive jackpot, its value can vary depending on when it was last claimed. However, it’s typically in the region of £4,000 to £5,000, which means that if it’s awarded when relatively few roomies are playing, each player would receive a pretty tidy sum!
Graphics and Sounds
A silhouette of the London skyline acts as the background for your Brit 50 ticket, and if you know your tourist attractions, you’ll easily spot sites such as the Gherkin, the Millennium Wheel, Tower Bridge, the O2 Arena, and St Paul’s Cathedral.
When you buy a ticket, you’ll see 10 random numbers added to it, and each one features a fun British icon such as the Loch Ness Monster and a British Bulldog.
The numbers appear as they are called in the box that runs across the top of the game screen, and in the same box, you can also see how many players are in the room, and how much the full house prize and progressive jackpot are worth.
You can view or post in the chat window on the right-hand side while you’re playing in the Brit 50 room, and if you wish, you can also enjoy an exciting range of side games via the panel underneath it.
Brit 50 is not just an attractive-looking online bingo variant. It’s also exclusive to Sun Bingo which means that you don’t have to compete with players from other Virtue Fusion sites, and the community progressive jackpot is also easier to win as it only pays out to people who play Brit 50 games.
The British graphics are fun and unique while the rules are newbie-friendly.
It’s also good that Sun Bingo allows you to add ‘buddies’ to your bingo games so that you can see whenever your friends are online or invite them to come and play games at the same time as you.
