Mytopia has announced the launch of a completely new version of Bingo Island on Facebook. The updated game has been given a visual makeover, including a “vibrant color scheme,” and new tropical-themed Bingo rooms that capture the ‘island’ feel of the game. Although the game looks different, players will still have access to the same multi-card Bingo gameplay they’ve come to know and love from the original experience.
In Bingo Island, users can play up to 20 cards per game, and can daub called numbers manually, or let the game daub their numbers automatically. Unlike traditional Bingo, however, Bingo Island combines Bingo with slot machines, as a slot machine is available on the right side of the screen, right next to the player’s Bingo cards. This slot machine gives players something to experience when they’re waiting for the game to call new numbers.
As players continue to play Bingo Island, they earn experience points which unlock new Bingo rooms for future play. The game’s social elements see users sending gifts to friends, or chatting in real time with the other players in each room.
“Over the past few years, Bingo Island has become one of the most popular and innovative social gaming experiences on Facebook. The Bingo Island community is unlike any other; players rely on one another both inside and outside of the game,” says Mytopia.
These changes to the Facebook version, which includes the launch of new characters within the experience, have been made in preparation for the game’s launch on mobile. Bingo Island will launch soon on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.
