Play Virtual Bingo - 49 Ball Bingo

Article Updated On 26th June 2020

This week we've been looking at the world of virtual sports. Over on our betting section we've updated our content on virtual horse racing, greyhounds and football. You can bet on a wide range of other sports including darts and marbles - yes marbles. However drop into Betfred's Virtual World and there's even a bingo game. Well, they call it bingo but we think it's more of a lottery style game. We decided to take a closer look.

How To Play Virtual Bingo

Head to the Virtual section of Betfred to discover the bingo game. You'll find a little ball icon between the speedway helmet and racing horse. When you land on the bingo game there's not much to see until you click on the green "watch live" button. To get started you need to first pick some numbers and place a bet. In order to win in this game you need to match 6 numbers from those that are drawn by the machine. There are 49 numbers available and only 35 are drawn. The fewer calls it takes to match your numbers the bigger the prize.

Picking numbers is very similar to making selections in a lotto game. You can choose 6 numbers yourself or click on Lucky Dip to get 6 random numbers. It is possible to choose up to 12 numbers on your ticket. This allows you to create permuatations of 6 which gives you more chances to win. It will also cost you more money because you need to pay for each line. Picking 12 numbers gives you 924 different perms. At 5p a line that is a huge 46.20 stake. That's a lot of bingo money to spend! After you've picked your numbers you can set how many draws you wish to play too.

Winning Lines

Once your wager has been made it's eyes down for the next draw. Watch the virtual bingo ball machine pull out 35 numbers in pretty rapid fashion. Match 6 numbers in the first 6 calls and you win x25,000 your stake. As more calls are made the less you'll win for matching the 6 numbers. Match 6 numbers on the 35th call and you win x1 your stake. Note that there are no prizes for matching less than the 6 numbers. The odds of winning the jackpot on Virtual Bingo are not great though. To match 6 numbers in just 6 number calls you're looking at odds of 1 in 13,983,816.

Rapid fire bingo games seem to be the thing at the moment and Virtual Bingo is quite similar to Bingo Millions Turbo. You pick your cards and then set the machine to run hoping to match 6 on one game or complete 1L, 2L or FH on another. The game is fast so you can move on to play again in moments. However we're not totally convinced with Virtual Bingo. It feels more like the lottery in everything but name and offers lesser prizes. Bingo fans should stick to the real thing whilst virtual sports fans might get more enjoyment from marble racing, football or horses!
