Play Winning Headlines - 36 Ball Bingo

Published On 6th June 2023

36 ball bingo games haven't mushroomed up amongst bingo brands as much as their 40 ball or 50 ball counterparts. Cash Cubes and Bouncy Balls popped up around the same time on Virtue Fusion whilst Tombola launched Pulse. Other platforms have decided to overlook the 36 ball game, but Sun Bingo felt that it was the perfect match for their own exclusive version - Winning Headlines. Surprisingly this game remains a popular option for Sun Bingo (and also Fabulous Bingo) players. if you've not tried out this 36 ball version then it's time to read all about it in our little review.

How To Play Winning Headlines Bingo

The Winning Headlines Bingo room is very colourful with reds and purples dominating the landscape. At the top of the room you'll find all the game information whilst the remainder is fill up with your bingo card. As you'd expect from the name of the game there's some references to The Sun Newspaper and newspaper icons in play! Like many other low ball number games on Virtue Fusion, Winning Headlines is a one ticket game - more commonly known as multistakes. The amount you wager effects the prizes on offer, but everyone plays the same game regardless. To play you first need to choose your stake (10p, 50p, 1 or 2) and then purchase your game card. The game card card comprises of 12 newspapers - and on each is either a number or a symbol. The symbols include Sun Savers, 9.50 Holidays, TVBiz, Bizarre and Dream Team. These symbols form part of the game card and play a part in a potential jackpot.

Headline Jackpots & Prizes

Numbers and symbols are called during Winning Headlines Bingo as in any other online game. There's no caller though and this does make the game quite stale, but thankfully there's the odd announcement that punctuates the silence. There's just the one prize and that's for the full house. However, Winning Headlines does boast some extra features. If during the game all six symbols are called then the Headline Jackpot card is completed and the jackpot prize won. This progressive prize is a 100% community prize which means it is shared by the roomies. When we dropped in to review the game this jackpot was just over 18 which seemed to be a little on the small side. We guess when it falls it's like getting a free game. Thankfully there are bigger jackpots and these are the Hot Off The Press and Deadline Jackpots. The former is worth 5000 and is won in 16 calls whilst the latter is worth 500 and falls at 18 calls. Both prizes we believe are won by the player and are not shared by the community.

Our Verdict

Winning Headlines is a decent 36 ball game that's perfect for players who want something different in the speed bingo department. We like that the game balls have a mix of numbers and symbols plus we're fans of the progressive community jackpot. It's always nice to have a chance of a community prize even if the payout isn't going to be huge once distributed amongst participating roomies. We would like to know how big this jackpot can go and also how often it's won! Likewise it'd be nice to know if the Hot Off The Press and Deadline Jackpots are ever won and when they were last won. Bingo operators really don't like giving out this information and it does make you wonder why! The lack of bingo caller is a real issue as it makes game play quite dull. We're not sure why calls aren't available. A chat facility is available but that was quieter than the bingo caller.
