BINGO Blitz Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
• How do I start playing?
The easiest way to start playing is to go to the LOBBY, select a City that you want to play in, and then click on the PLAY! button. You will automatically be taken to a Room in that City with an available table.
• OK, I selected a City and clicked the PLAY! button, now what?
Now select the amount of Cards you would like to purchase to begin playing in that Room. You can choose to purchase up to four cards to play for one round.
• How do I play?
The easiest way to learn to play BINGO Blitz is to watch the short Tutorial located on the LOBBY page.
BINGO Blitz’s main gameplay is identical to standard Bingo.
A Bingo Card contains 24 numbered spaces and one free space in the center. The numbers are assigned at random on each card and are arranged in five columns of five numbers each by five rows.
Numbers are drawn at random. The last 6 numbers called are displayed above your Bingo cards. You should mark them off your cards as they are called. The Number Display Board keeps track of all the numbers called in a game.
Your goal is to either mark off all four corners or mark off a line with five numbers in a vertical, horizontal or diagonal row on one of your cards.
• So, how is BINGO Blitz different from a standard Bingo game?
BINGO Blitz contains Power-Ups that help you get a Bingo. BINGO Blitz cards also contain Bonus Squares that award you with additional prizes when you correctly mark them off.
• What are the different types of Bonus Squares?
Coin Square – Receive extra Coins when marked off.
Treasure Square – Receive a Treasure Chest when marked off.
Instant Win Square – Instantly win a Bingo when marked off.
Free Spaces – Use to complete a Bingo Pattern without needing the marked number called.
Collection Item Card – Receive the pictured Collection Item if you win a BINGO on the Card.
• I marked off a Bingo Pattern on a card. How do I claim Bingo?
At the bottom of each card there’s a button with the word BINGO on it. If you’re sure you have a Bingo, click the button to claim it.
• How can I be sure I have a Bingo?
If you claim a Bingo and don’t really have one, you will have made a BAD CALL and will forfeit your card. Make sure you’re correct before calling a Bingo!
Use the Number Display Board to check on your numbers. You can also use it to see numbers that have already been called that you may have missed.
• Why are more numbers being called after a player claims a Bingo?
After the first Bingo is won, there are more numbers being called to allow you and other players a chance to win runner-up prizes. You can check your standing for that round at the bottom of the game.

As you gain XP while playing a Bingo card, you will unlock the ability to use a random Power-Up from your inventory.
• What are Collection Items?
Over the course of playing BINGO Blitz, you will come across Collection Items that will randomly be added to your account. Each city has a collection of 12 items: they can be collected by simply playing the game, received as gifts from your neighbors, or through Shadow Cards. (Shadow Cards are Bingo cards that display the silhouette of a collection item in the background; the item will be awarded when you get a Bingo on that card.)
Completing a set of Collection Items for each city will reward you with either extra Daily Credits or a large, one-time payout of Credits.
• What are Team Points?
Every time you or a teammate get a Bingo, Team Points are added for your team's weekly total (higher level cities will add more Team Points for each Bingo you get). Reaching certain Team Point milestones during the week will unlock bonuses for you and your teammates; you can check on this progress with the bar located above the leaderboard in the Lobby.
• I’m all out of Credits, how can I get more?
You have a couple options to get more Credits:
Daily Credits – Check into BINGO Blitz every day to claim your free Credits.
Buying Credits – If you would like to continue playing right away you can always buy or earn more credits through the GET CREDITS tab on top of the page.

• The game moves slowly and animations are jumpy.
You’re either running on an old computer or you have too many things running at the same time as BINGO Blitz.
First, try closing all other programs and browser tabs you have running.
If that doesn’t help, try clicking the Eye icon on the top right of the BINGO Blitz screen. It will reduce the graphic quality of the game a little but will gain you more speed.
