Are You Ready to Tackle the Iconic Television-Themed Bingo Rooms?:
For those of you who don’t know about the award-winning Crystal Maze television gameshow (which first aired in 1990), it was focused on a team of intrepid contestants tackling a series of ingenious games and tough challenges, in a giant fantasy setting. As the contestants progressed, they would gather diamonds as rewards which would then lead them to the final challenge; tackling the big crystal dome. Within the crystal dome, a single contestant would stand and the blower would start; they had a set amount of time to collect as much money as possible! Sounds like fun huh! The series came to an end in 1995, but it was brought to life once more in 2016 and is still going strong to this very day. So, what’s this got to do with bingo? iGaming specialist and developer founded in 2004 , Gamesys, has created a Crystal Maze-themed bingo game, which can be played at its networked bingo sites…
…What is Crystal Maze Bingo? This fun-filled title allows you to get nostalgic with the new online game, based on one of the UK’s most popular game shows! The rules are simple; a total of 90 numbers will be called as you play with cards that include 15 numbers on them. To win a cash prize, all you have to do is mark the numbers off your bingo card when they are called. Prizes are awarded as follows:
– 1 line – marking off any horizontal line
– 2 lines – marking off any two horizontal lines
– Full house – marking off every number on your ticket.
And like other online bingo games, you don’t have to be sat glaring at a screen to win; because after buying your tickets, you can continue on with your day as your bingo game will automatically keep track of your tickets and will award you any prizes you have won.
The Bingo Rooms and How to Play:
When you first visit a room, it’s divided into three columns; the left column (which is called the Fun Panel) holds a selection of mini games you can play. The middle column holds details of the current game – jackpots, number of players, balls called, and the Buy Tickets button. A timer that’s counting down to the next game is located at the bottom, this then changes to show your purchased tickets when the game starts. The right-hand column contains the Chat window…
…Click on the Buy Tickets button and you’ll be taken to the Ticket Shop. Select the number of tickets you want to buy and then click Buy, once you’re happy. By using the tabs at the top of the Ticket Shop you can also see all the tickets you currently own, as well as schedule buying for later games in your current room. Once your tickets are bought you’re ready to begin the game.
After buying your tickets and waiting for the game to start in the lobby, you’ll see information on the four original Crystal Maze zones. Seconds before the bingo game starts an exciting random selection process will begin and you’ll be transitioned into one of the chosen zones:
– Industrial: From the bubbling pond of toxic waste, to the heavy metal doors, smoking pipes and dodgy electric cables, the Industrial zone will put your head to the test in more ways than one!
– Aztec: The indigenous dwellers of this lost jungle temple may have long since passed, but their intricate and challenging games remain. Float, climb and solve riddles under the ancient sun!
– Future: Beam into the intergalactic spaceship and take a trip to the stars as you avoid lasers, close faulty airlocks and race against the clock with mind-bending equations!
– Medieval: Mumsy may have left, but her castle remains. Solve long-lost clues, fire ancient artillery and solve royal riddles that have baffled Kings and Queens for centuries!
