New HexaBingo game at Unibet and Drop at Tombola

new online bingo game – HexaBingoIf you’re getting tired of playing run-of-the-mill 90-ball and 75-ball games, it might be time to take a look at Unibet Bingo where a unique and exciting new online bingo variant has just made its debut.

HexaBingo is a game in which only 3 players participate and each player receives one card.

The fact that there are fewer players competing for the prize means that each game theoretically offers you a 1 in 3 chance of winning!

It costs from as little as 50p to play right up to £500 and you can also see the multiplier you are playing for before the game begins. This will be between 2x and 1,000x your stake.

There’s also another new game to check out at tombola.

Drop is exclusive to Tombola Arcade and it looks a little like Tetris. You can play it from 5p and the prizes can go as high as £500.

To win at Drop, you need to match the shapes to clear a column. Sounds simple enough to us!

Wills and Kate receive more critical feedback about their bingo-calling skills

You may remember that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a virtual bingo session for the residents of a Cardiff care home 3 months ago. Despite trying to impress the OAPs with their knowledge of bingo lingo, one particular resident’s feedback was that “it wasn’t as good as it should have been”.

This week, Wills and Kate were able to visit Shire Hall care home in person where they came face-to-face with their former bingo critic, 87-year-old Joan Drew-Smith.

The Duke jokingly reminded Joan about her negative comments, to which Joan responded, “Yes, you did a b****y s****y job!” After being briefly taken aback, both the Duke and Duchess exploded a fit of giggles. We guess you can’t win ‘em all!

Jumpman launches its Gold Bars promotion

Members of Jumpman Gaming’s Jumpman Slots or 15Network are currently going for gold thanks to an exciting new promotion called Gonzo’s Gold Giveaway.

Each time that a player spends £10 cash on the new Gonzo’s Quest Megaways slot, they receive one entry into the prize draw. Whoever is picked as the lucky winner at the end of this month gets a solid gold bar worth over £1,400!

Relax Gaming and Pragmatic Play release new slots

La Fiesta 5x4 video slot Viva España! It’s time to meet the latest slot from Relax Gaming – La Fiesta.

La Fiesta is a 5×4 video slot that’s rich with special features like four free spins bonuses, scatter symbols, win multipliers and a Tour Bus ‘gamble’ feature that gives you the chance to win additional free spins. One of the features even lets you experience the fun and excitement of La Tomatina (a famous tomato-hurling festival).

This week also sees Pragmatic Play launch its Aztec Gems Deluxe slot. It’s a classic slot that uses 3 reels and 3 paylines, but it also has a modern twist thanks to the re-spin feature. Once triggered, the re-spin bonus lets you get as many sticky symbols as possible in the hopes of winning a random multiplier or a bonus prize.

888 Goes Live with Pragmatic Play games

Pragmatic PlayThe popular gaming content provider, Pragmatic Play, has achieved quite a bit this week!

In our previous story, it launched a brand-new slot called Aztec Gems Deluxe, but it’s also managed to secure a potentially lucrative deal with one of Europe’s biggest online gaming operators, 888 Holdings.

The agreement will see Pragmatic Play’s ever-growing portfolio of live casino titles go live at 888Casino. Its slots will also be added to the casino’s lobby.

The live casino suite includes player favourites such as baccarat, roulette, and blackjack, as well as a range of speed variants. Plus, PragmaticPlay is also working on a range of new live dealer products.
