How to Play Bingo

Bingo is a fun game of chance that anyone can play at any time. Bingo is played by calling randomly generated numbers, which match against numbers on bingo tickets purchased by players. There are different types of bingo games; at Betty, we have two types, which are Bingo 90 and Bingo 75.

Registration

Betty Bingo 90

Registration on Betty Bingo is a simple 4 step process.

When the app is launched, the user is presented with the Login Screen.

Existing users can sign in with their phone number and PIN. New users have to create new accounts.

For the first step, users provide simple personal details. They also get to choose a nickname that becomes their public display name on the app. This helps keep users semi-anonymous and adds some personalization to the gaming experience. We anticipate that there might be a few users confused about this so we’ve included an info button on the right of the text field.

We’re collecting gender data simply for analytics.

Users that, for some reason, have an account and find themselves on this page, can either return to the login screen with the back button or the button at the bottom of the screen.

Nigeria is greyed out here because it's currently the only country option. When Bingo expands to the other African countries as planned, the value of the country field is gotten from the user’s GPS location (So the user has to grant the app permission to use their location).

Phone number format can be 080, or 80. User has to check the ‘above -18’ box as a legal requirement

A dialog box pops up - the aim of this is to reduce the probable error rate of entry with the users phone number. So the user gets to check the number (hopefully) before he proceeds.

If the user hits ‘cancel’, he/she is returned to the previous screen with the previously entered number appended on the phone number field.

After the user enters their phone number, they receive an SMS with a code from BettyBingo. This code helps validate the user’s number.

The Resend Code button appears 2 minutes after the screen loads. When we’re able to get analytics working, we can use the data to determine the average time it takes someone to receive the confirmation text message and adjust the time frame accordingly.

The ‘Didn’t get the code’ link is to help users that are still encountering problems with getting the code despite having waited the required amount of time.

For security reasons, users need to have a PIN to safe guard their details and money.

The PIN is a 5 digit combination.
Users are required to enter the PIN more than once at setup to rule out the error of entry. There is also a visibility toggle so users have the option to see the masked values in the password field..
From here, the user is directed to the Lobby

When a player chooses a room, they would also have to decide on the number of tickets they want to purchase for the game.

The maximum number of tickets that a player can buy at once varies per room. The most common max cap is 96. Price per ticket also varies across the rooms. Each ticket has a range of preselected numbers. Players can choose their preferred tickets from a range of tickets.

The prize money to be won depends on the number of players in the Bingo Room and the number of tickets bought. The house takes a percentage of the total worth (between 20% - 30%) and the rest is shared between the 1 Line, 2 Line & Full house winners.

For example, we have 5 players in a Bingo Room. 3 of them buy 3 tickets worth Ksh150 and 2 buy Ksh50 worth of tickets. The total worth of tickets will then be Ksh200.

The house then takes 20% of that which will be - Ksh40

What's left is Ksh160 and this is what the winners will share.
1line - 20% which will be Ksh32
2line - 30% which will be Ksh48
Full house - 50% which will be Ksh80

Slots

Betty offers over 300 kinds of slot games. Fundamentally, they work in the same way, although there are slight differences from game to game.

The Random Number Generator (RNG) is responsible for the payout percentage of the slot game. That percentage has to be certified by a third party authority to ensure fair gaming. The rules require that a minimum percentage has to be paid back to players.

A typical slot game has from 3 to 5 reels with different kinds of symbols. The game, Neon Staxx, as depicted here, has 5 reels. A player would have to set the bet size and the number of paylines to play. Different games have different variances - there are some that offer bettings as low as $0.01 a line.

For example, let's say an online slot has 25 paylines, and betting which ranges from $0.01 to $1.00 a coin. The slot allows a player bet up to 10 coins per line. Therefore, the player can play one coin at $0.01 on one payline, meaning your bet per spin is just $0.01. They can also go for the maximum - $1.00 a coin, 10 coins per line, and the maximum 25 paylines. This would mean that their bet per spin would be $250.

Other slots, meanwhile, will have fixed paylines, meaning that a player cannot change the paylines they want to play. It can lead to bigger cash outlays over time, but you also have a chance of hitting more winning combinations.

To win, players simply need their symbols to match certain predefined patterns. Players can see this patterns by clicking on the info button within the game. Different winning combinations have various payouts,
