Although Pragmatic Play is an online software developer which is best-known for producing scratch cards, table games, video poker and video slots such as Release the Kraken, Buffalo King, Mustang Gold, and Leprechaun Song, it’s more recently turned its hand to online bingo.
Its recent foray into the online bingo industry has proved a pleasant surprise to both players and industry experts. Its bingo software platform is now being used by established gaming brands including those owned by LeoVegas, Nektan and Jumpman Gaming. New bingo sites are also in production using this brand new platform.
Up until this week, the Pragmatic Play online bingo platform featured a mix of 90, 80, 75, 50, and 30-ball rooms such as Boombox, Ballroom, Stars & Stripes, and Lightning.
Fast and Furious
These are now joined by a brand-new, mobile-first experience called Bingo Blast, which offers players all the excitement of a 90-ball game at a much faster pace. This should not be confused with Buzz Bingo Blast launched last year that is a different, 36 ball game.
Instead of the numbers being called one-by-one, Bingo Blast shoots multiple balls onto the screen all at once when the game begins via a process called a “blast”. This will take care of the first 30 or so balls and players can then check their tickets. Consecutive blasts then follow with the balls appearing one by one, but at a rapid pace until a player wins the game. This game only features a full house prize.
Simple to Play
Pragmatic Play has ensured that the rules of Bingo Blast are simple enough for beginners to get to grips with while also attracting seasoned players who are keen to experience a faster version of 90-ball bingo.
The software automatically marks off the numbers and announces the winners, so all the player needs to do is purchase the number of tickets required before each game starts.
The developer’s Vice President of Bingo, Claire McDaid describes the new game as “classic bingo for modern times” and says that the company is sure that it will prove to be “a huge hit with players”.
