Play Snap Bingo - 52 Ball Bingo

Published On 15th January 2024

The bingo roster at Jackpotjoy changed considerably during 2023 with a number of rooms including Crystal Maze and Game Room Bingo being dropped. However 2024 has kicked off with a little more promise with the arrival of what at firt glance may seem like a brand new game. It's called Snap Bingo and combines playing cards, poker and bingo in one game. Of course 52 ball playing card style games aren't new and Snap Bingo has been part of the Jackpotjoy set up before. Back in 2011 it was a rival to Tombola's Cinco but was culled from the roster, possibly when there was a platform upgrade. Anyway the good news is that it's back.

About Snap Bingo

Snap Bingo at Bally's sites such as Jackpotjoy, Double Bubble Bingo and Virgin Games has an Art Deco/Great Gatsby design. When you enter the room there's even a Charleston inspired soundtrack to enjoy. A neon lit playing card with a hotel emblazoned on it dominates the right side whilst on the left you'll find the playing area. It looks pretty good and we'd suggest that this is one of Jackpotjoy's better looking rooms. Are we finally going to see some proper competition for Tombola? The game itself is described as "half card game, half bingo" and this is because it offers a little bit more than other games that have utilised a 52 card playing deck. Not only can you win playing bingo but you can win if your bingo card - or poker hand as JPJ love to call it - is in itself a winner based on a game of poker.

How To Play Snap Bingo

To play Snap Bingo you need to purchase a bingo card. This is a multistakes game which means you can choose to wager 25p, 50p or £1 on each game. No matter what you choose to wager you will still enter in the same round as other players, but higher wagers mean higher prizes! A multistake game usually means "even steven" with all roomies only having one ticket (poker hand) but with Snap you can purchase up to 5 tickets per game. When the game starts you're dealt five playing cards to represent your bingo ticket/poker hand. If these cards contain a winning poker hand then you automatically win. Two pair for example will pay x2 your wager, three of a kind x3 and a straight x4. A flush has a x6 payout whilst you'll get x8 for the full house. A straight flush pays x1000 and a royal flush will reward you with a x10000 win! The game then moves on to the bingo side of things with playing cards being drawn instead of bingo balls. Drawn cards that match your poker hand are marked off. Play continues until a full house is called.

Full Poker Hand Jackpot

The base bingo game element of Snap Bingo only has the one full house prize and there are no community/progressive jackpots available for calling house in a select number of calls. Back in 2012 Jackpotjoy did have a Super version of Snap Bingo that included a Super Snap Jackpot. This paid out a 40% jackpot to the winner and 60% to roomies if the full house was called within 7 calls. In addition this old version also included a Lucky Charms game that came into play at the end of each round for players who'd purchased the full quota of tickets for the game. Sadly the latest version doesn't include these extras. The end game isn't really needed in this (or indeed any other) game but we'd have loved to have seen a progressive jackpot included.

Our Verdict On Snap Bingo

It's good to see Snap Bingo return to Jackpotjoy. It looks great and we love the soundtrack that accompanies game play. Using playing cards within a bingo environment isn't new but Jackpotjoy have managed to make an old game and well used format feel fresh. The name we feel is a little confusing because Snap suggests a younger person's game whilst actually this poker inspired variant feels grown up. Surprisingly the number of players given Snap a try is pretty low. When we played whilst writing this article there was hardly any other participants. Hopefully that will change in the future although the 25p minimum ticket price does feel a little on the pricey side. Low player numbers should mean better chances of winning the full house but what about a poker bonus? At the end of each game JPJ reveal who's won with a poker hand and it's maybe 1 or 2 players per round. In other words don't expect to see many wins from that part of the game!
