Bingo Card Games
Playing bingo with Cards is just one of the many different ways people are playing bingo in the UK.
First seen online with the ever-popular tombola Cinco card game, this style of bingo game is played with a deck of 52 playing cards (excludes jokers) instead of numbered bingo balls and tickets. With one main prize up for grabs, the aim of the game is to get a full hand of 5 cards before anyone else does!
Although we are unsure if tombola invented this playing card bingo style of game or not, but they was certainly one of the first bingo sites to have it.
Cinco! is the name of their game and it is perhaps one of the most popular played games on tombola.co.uk.
Cinco has one main prize as well as several jackpot prizes up to £20,000 which you could win when you get a hand of 5 cards within a set amount of numbers.
52-5 Bingo is the same style of game as Cinco! but it is the name given to the game on the Dragonfish bingo platform. Not all the bingo sites operated by Dragonfish have 52-5 bingo, but many of the popular bingo sites do have it (see below).
Each Dragonfish site has their own prizes, jackpots and room names and a few offer progressive jackpots. Details for each room can be found on each individual bingo site.
52-5 Bingo is available with these sites:
- 888Ladies Bingo - Flash Fives
- Posh Bingo - Flash Fives
- Wink Bingo - Flash Fives
- Costa Bingo - Bingo Vegas
Snap! and Joker Jackpot
There used to be other playing card versions such as Gamesys brands including Jackpotjoy used to have Monopoly Snap! and many Playtech sites did have Joker Jackpot, but for some reason unknown to us both these types of games have now been discontinued.
