Many online bingo brands that were powered by the 888/Globalcom bingo software offered players the chance to place bingo side bets once upon a time for the chance to win extra prizes that were dependent on the balls drawn in the actual bingo game. One of the first brands to introduce this feature was 888Ladies but not long after bingo side bets arrived at the flagship brand it was rolled out to nearly all of the brands powered by the same software. As with any type of betting you are offered a variety of different value options when using the bingo side bets feature.
There were many different variants of the bingo side bets available at 888Ladies and here we look at the options that were available to players – each game had bet values available of between 20p and £1:
Bingo Side Bets – Races
To place the short race bet you needed to choose which ball in the bingo gameplay you think will be the first colour or letter drawn in a set number of calls. The number of calls was selected at random BEFORE you place your bet.
For the long race you simply had to choose which letter or colour was going to appear most during the bingo game.
Bingo Side Bets – Bet The Balls
This is pretty self explanatory; bet on the value of a certain call being even or odd. The call number was generated at random before you placed your bet.
Again, it’s pretty obvious what you had to do for this bingo side bet – bet on the colour of a certain bingo ball whose number was generated at random.
Low / High
Place a bet on whether a certain bingo call will be higher or lower than the call number generated at random.
The Dragonfish networked brands also offered a unique bingo side bet game called Lucky Call and this offered players the chance to win up to £500 if they could successfully predict the colours of the first six balls that were called. There were four betting options; 25p, 50p, 75p and £1 and the more you bet, the more money you could win.
