What Is 52 Ball Bingo?

Although 90 ball bingo is the standard, over the years online operators have sought to jazz up the popular games in a number of ways. Game themes is one such option, however adapting the number of balls in a game is another. We don't mean switching to 75 or 80 balls though. Operators have come up with much more imaginative adaptions to try and keep player interest. As far as we're aware the first 52 ball version of bingo online arrived in the form of Cinco at Tombola. Since then it's been adopted by other sites although known by names such as Hit 52 and Flash Fives. Buy why a 52 ball bingo game? Well this is because developers figured that a bingo game using playing cards could be good fun. Therefore the 52 cards in a pack represent the bingo numbers.

How To Play 52 Ball Bingo

In 52 ball bingo, players are "dealt" five cards. This hand represents the traditional bingo card. Instead of numbers being called cards are drawn from a deck. If a drawn card matches one in your hand then it's covered. The aim of the game is to cover your five cards - i.e. get a full house - before the other roomies. As you'd expect it's a fast and furious game. In fact we'd go as far as saying that Cinco was a precursor to speed bingo games such as 30, 36 and 40 ball games. Surprisingly it wasn't until 2016 when Dragonfish launched their version of 52 ball bingo. In fact they launched two versions - one card based, Flash Fives, and one sweet based, Candylicious. The latter featured a Willy Wonka character and sweets firing out of a cannon. Unfortunately The UKGC's regulations ensured a very limited lifespan for Candylicious. Most Dragonfish sites now have a card based version known as Hit 52, Suits You, Bingo 52 or Flash Fives.
