Coronation Street Bingo is a unique 90-ball bingo variant that offers prizes for one line, two lines, and a full house. There’s an extra bingo card that offers extra prizes as it fills.
Essentially, it uses typical 90-ball bingo rules. However, it also comes with exciting extras such as video clips of classic Corrie episodes, a Golden Cobbles Jackpot (which is a community jackpot), a range of Gala Premiere Jackpots, and some rather famous bingo callers!
Cards cost as little as 5p and you can buy them from the room directly or via the pre-buy facility in the lobby.
Next, we’re going to explain exactly how to play Coronation Street Bingo and more about how you can qualify for the jackpot prizes.
When you enter the Coronation Street Bingo room, you can use the slider at the bottom-left to select how many tickets you wish to buy. The minimum is 1 and the maximum is 48.
Once you’ve bought your tickets, it’s time to wait for the game to begin.
Your cards are automatically marked and sorted into order of best-to-worst, and there are three chances to win a share of the prize pool in every game.
Any additional features are indicated in the game information section at the top.
The Golden Cobbles Jackpot is the star attraction in the Coronation Street Bingo room.
It’s a special bingo ticket that is shared between all players and runs across multiple games until it pays out.
Just like your own bingo tickets, the Golden Cobbles ticket gets marked each time that a full house is called and the winning ball matches one of its numbers.
To win the Golden Cobbles Jackpot, you need to be the first person to claim the full house, and if the last number to be drawn matches any number on the Golden Cobbles ticket, you get £5. Larger prizes are up for grabs if the final ball helps to complete one line, two lines or a full house on the Golden Cobbles ticket, with the maximum being worth £500.
Playing in the Coronation Street Bingo room also means that you qualify to win hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly jackpots that are exclusive to Gala Bingo and shared across a range of rooms.
The Hourly is worth £20, the Daily is worth £100, the Weekly is worth £250, the Monthly Progressive is worth a minimum of £25,000, and the Bingo Boss Progressive is worth a mammoth £50,000 minimum.
As players are selected at random to play the jackpot feature game, anyone (including you!) has the potential to win.
To keep you entertained while you’re waiting for the next game to begin, you can enjoy video clips of Corrie episodes via the video player on the right-hand side of the screen. There are over 100 archive clips to enjoy featuring the likes of Elsie Tanner, Hilda Ogden, Ena Sharples, Derek Wilton, Maxine Peacock, Alf Roberts and many more.
You can view your tickets by looking at the bottom-left, and you can scroll through them by clicking on the left and right arrows. The Golden Cobbles ticket sits in the centre of the screen, and each time that a ball is announced, any matching numbers are dabbed on both yours and the communal ticket.
The bingo callers in the room alternate between current and ex-cast members, but you can pick your favourite within the settings such as Shelly Unwin or Jim MacDonald if you prefer.
Coronation Street has been on our tellies since the 1960s and it’s become a true British staple, and six decades later, Gala’s Coronation Street Bingo room has also achieved superstar status.
It’s available on just one British online bingo brand, which gives you an advantage over members of other bingo sites. Plus, it’s the only game where you can win a Golden Cobbles Jackpot!
