Play Blox Bingo - 90 Ball Bingo

Published On 16th August 2022

Way back in 2018, Bally's (previously Gamesys) introduced a new bingo variation to their roster. Blox Bingo is still available today on Jackpotjoy, Double Bubble Bingo, Virgin Games, Rainbow Riches Casino and Monopoly Casino. When this particular variant was first released it combined a traditional 90 ball game with a tetris/gems style bonus round. In many respects it was an updated - and inhouse - version of Bejeweled Bingo that used to be available at the site. However things have changed somewhere along the line. The bonus round has been dropped leaving Blox as a nice to look at graphical bingo game with a progressive jackpot feature.

How To Play Blox Bingo

The Blox Bingo Room isn't the most thrilling room you'll ever enter. Bathed in maroon and purple colours there really isn't that much to grab you. A colourful 'Blox Blitz' logo dominates most of the screen whilst the green purchase ticket button feels a bit lost towards the bottom left of the screen (viewing on desktop). Space age music plays in the background on continuous loop. Playing Blox Bingo is as simple as playing any 90 ball game - mainly because it is now a simple 90 ball game. Click the green ticket button to purchase your tickets. You can typically play from 1 to 60 tickets per game and prices start at 10p. Once you've purchased tickets it's then a case of sitting back and waiting to see if you win on 1L, 2L or the full house.

Progressive Jackpot

Whilst the room graphics are at best "meh", the graphics for the bingo game are actually pretty cool. The daubing and cards are some of the best we've seen and that remains the case a few years on. A big bingo dauber pops up to dab off your numbers during gameplay and when you're down to 3TG then your bingo cards are simplified to show just the numbers you need to win on 1L, 2L or FH. As well as the usual 1L, 2L and FH prizes, Blox Bingo offers a jackpot. This is won when a player calls house in 42 calls or less. Look out too for linked games that run across Jackpotjoy and it's sister sites as the game prizes and jackpot increases. At time of writing a Super Jackpot of 15,000 was available on a linked game but to win you needed to call house in 38 calls or less.

Free Bingo Games

When Blox first launched it had a bonus round. During this round, which was only available for players who had purchased six tickets or more, would have just 60 seconds to play a Bejewled Blitz style game. The aim of the game was to line up blocks of the same colour in lines/groups of 3 or more. This earnt you points and eliminated those blocks from the grid. If you collected enough points then this would earn you free tickets for the next game. Unfortunately this feature has now been dropped. Instead all qualifying players can enjoy four free games every hour between 10am and 10pm daily. These games are at 05, 25, 35 and 55 past the hour and to play you must have wagered at least 2 on your chosen bingo brand in the past 7 days. These free games are linked across the Gamesys Network and do attract a lot of interest.

Our Verdict

When we initially reviewed Blox Bingo we called it "a stylish adapatation of the 90 ball bingo game". We also said that "it doesn't push any boundaries because it's simply a 90 ball game with a bonus round". We felt that the bonus round was a fun element and that it added an extra dimension to proceedings. Without though it's now just a nice looking 90 ball game with block shaped bingo balls. We do love the graphics during game play but it just feels a little bit lacking in interest. We don't quite know why Gamesys dropped the Blox Blitz element, perhaps it didn't quite function as expected, or it wasn't attractive enough to players (after all you did need to spend 60p per game) but it did elevate the game. Of course there are free games daily for qualifying players which does soften the loss of the Blitz style game.
