Spin and Scratch Your Way to an Instant Win!
Seeing as each and every one of our fave online bingo sites offer amazingly created slot games and scratchcards, sites are making slot fans and scratchie lovers out of bingo players! These 2 things really enhance our bingo experience, because sites often offer their games as mini additions to the bingo rooms. This means that whilst you are waiting for the next bingo game to start, you can load a slot or scratchcard to pass the time and create even more chances to bag some cash or simply play the games on their own! The slots and scratchcard games are where the software providers of your chosen site can really showcase their creativity and skills, and you will find that both of these amazing types of gaming are incredibly fun and an absolute joy to play.

Slot Games

Slot games are the most popular form of online gaming besides bingo, mainly due to the fact that you do not have to do very much to bag a win. In fact, all you have to do is click and watch the reels spin and the Random Number Generator that pre-determines the winning combinations will do all the work for you. There are 2 types of slot games; 3 reel slots and 5 reel slots. 3 reel slot games are the classics, often featuring just 1, 3, 5 or 9 paylines. They don’t tend to offer any complex bonus games or bonus features to enhance your chances of winning and snapping up some cash is usually as simple as landing 3 matching characters on the reels. 5 reel slot games are a new generation of slots. These are often far more complex and interesting, boasting as many as 243 paylines (so 243 ways to win!) and bonus symbols like:

•    Wild - this substitutes for all other symbols on the reels (except the scatter) to create more wining paylines, thereby enhancing your chances of winning.
•    Scatter - this typically performs 2 functions: 1 function is to trigger the bonus game or free spins feature and another is to simply multiply your winnings.

5 reel slots often - but not always - carry bonus games, too. These are extra little games that could have you winning more cash and are usually as simple as clicking on a box to reveal your prize. Of course they are all in-keeping with the theme of the game.

Scratch Cards

These are fantastic if you want an instant win thrill because all you have to do is scratch the panels and your prize awaits below! There are typically 2 types of scratchies: 1 is simply a virtual version of the classic paper based scratchcards which feature silver panels and involve you bagging 3 of a kind to win the corresponding prize, but the other is far more entertaining! Scratchies nowadays are more intricately designed and sometimes don’t resemble the classic paper scratchie as you know it! For example - a sea-themed scratchie could simply show random shells on a beach and have you clicking the shells to find various objects beneath! They look far more advanced than retro scratchies but essentially the aim of the game is the same.
