Bingo Cataratas (Spanish for waterfalls) is changing the way people think about bingo according to Bovada. Just because bingo is a classic with a huge following, doesn’t mean it can’t be spiced up with a fresh new format. Bingo Cataratas has the basic structure of bingo, but also has an “extra ball” feature and a bonus mini game.
Why would we need an extra ball? Well, we’ve all experienced the frustration of needing just one more number to nail that winning line. And sometimes the urge to see what the next number would have been is overpowering. With Bingo Cataratas, you have the option of buying one (or two, or three) last ball(s) after the standard 31 numbers have been called. Actually, there are 12 “last chance” balls in total, but the more you buy, the more expensive your game is. At the top of the screen, you’ll see your balance, the amount you’ve won, and the price of an extra ball. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see the option to “Buy an Extra Ball,” giving you ample opportunities to win.
If that last ball results in a perfect square in the center of your card, you’re going to the bonus round. A wheel of fortune is nestled between a waterfall and a lush forest, accompanied by Safari Joe and his trusty toucan. The colorful wheel has 10 slots – each with a unique value (5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 50, 70, 100, 200 and 500). Spin the wheel to see what fortune has in store for you.
To a certain extent, you can alter your fortune, and not just with the Extra Ball feature. If you don’t like the cards you’ve been dealt, swap them by clicking “Change Cards.” Each card has 15 numbers throughout three rows and five columns. Increase your odds of winning by playing the maximum four cards simultaneously. With 60 numbers between your four cards, you’ll have a higher chance of landing one of the 10 winning patterns.
