Evolution Gaming introduces bingo-style Mega Ball online lottery.
Think about all
the types of gambling there are in the world. What if I asked you to
pick the one game that is beloved the most by all ages? Now, what if
I asked you to pick the game that is played by more people than any
other in the world? If you’re in the majority, you would have
selected bingo for the first answer, and Lottery games for the
second. These aren’t just the most popular answers. They are
statistically correct, as well.
Think about it.
Who doesn’t love bingo? Children love it so much that most
educational systems come up with bingo games that teach all sorts of
subjects, from science and history, to math and literature. Lottery
games are such big sellers because 1) they are so widely advertised,
and 2) they are available in retail outlets on almost on every street
corner on the planet.
This is the same
information the games developers at Evolution Gaming – the
world leader in live-dealer and live-hosted online casino gambling
productions – threw into a melting pot when they came up with the
idea for their latest game. They call it the Mega Ball,
and you can play it at more than one hundred Evolution-powered live

teased us with this bingo-style game in February at the ICE expo in
London. The game plays out like a number-drawn lottery, but bettors
partake in the action as they would a bingo game. Each player
purchases one or more cards, and will win if enough of their numbers
are drawn. The Mega Ball features a multiplier of 5x-100x, giving
players a chance to win up to 1,000,000x their bet.
How it works…
There are 51 colorful balls flying around in a clear barrel, numbered
(of course) from 1 to 51. The automatic ball drawing machine will
suck 20 of these balls out of the barrel, one at a time, and send
them down a clear chute. The host will call off these numbers as they
Once the first
20 numbers are completed, the ambient lighting changes, increasing
the air of excitement as the twenty-first ball – a.k.a. the Mega
Ball – is drawn last. In the meantime…
Players are able to purchase anywhere from 1 to 200 cards per game.
They will choose how much money they wish to purchase each card for
(i.e. bet per card). Each card contains a random set of 25 numbers in
a 5×5 grid. Like the balls in the barrel, those numbers can range in
value from 1 to 51.
As the numbers
are drawn, each matching number on every card is automatically
marked. The goal is to fill as many lines on the card as possible; up
to 12 in all (5 down, 5 across, and 2 diagonal). The more lines you
fill, the higher the payout becomes. Cards with the most matching
numbers/lines are instantly moved to the top of the list.
A card wins if
it has 1 or more lines filled. The prize will increase with each
additional line filled. When the Mega Ball is drawn, if its number
completes a line, the prize awarded for that card will be multiplied
by the random multiplier associated with the Mega Ball.
To make things really interesting, there’s always a rare
chance that a second Mega Ball will be drawn, capable of producing
even more big-multiplier winners.
In the words of
its creators, “Mega Ball is a unique, entertaining and fast-paced
game show, featuring one or two Mega Ball bonus rounds in which you
have the chance to win even more with added multipliers!
appeal comes from multiple attractive features. It’s comparable to
the beloved game of bingo, and has the lottery-style power to pay
prizes in the million dollar range. Evolution brings this all to the
table in a “unique and thrilling online live dealer variant, with
all the elements of a world-class casino game show.”
