Exciting goings on in the bingo world as platform provider Odobo released a brand new bingo variant, Top of the Shop. The game, which is developed by Trimark, is to be used exclusively for the Odobo Marketplace.
So what is Top of the Shop? According to Odobo, it is a play on the traditional 90-ball bingo, featuring all of your favourite bingo called phrases, including Two Fat Ladies and Snakes Alive. These are shown on playing cards, and players can then try to match them up with the numbers on their own cards. This rather unique calling format puts a fun spin on the traditional bingo style. However, there are still plenty of similarities with usual 90 ball bingo games, including wins for one or two lines, or a full house. The game also tries to incorporate aspects of land based bingo with online bingo, and offers the player extra fun features and opportunities to win, including Big Wins, Double Bubbles and Bulleyes. As many an online bingo players will know, these land based bingo trends rarely appear in the online counterparts, so it’s nice to see Odobo and Trimark finding ways of adding them in. The game will also offer players a rewards system, which will award them for longer play.
