Sparkly Bingo Help

Getting Started

Click on any Play Now button to play and join in the fun with Sparkly Bingo. The bingo lobby area will load, where you'll find a huge variety of games to choose from including FREE bingo, 5p bingo, 10p bingo, guaranteed jackpots and instant games.
Once you’re in lobby area you will be able to choose from a whole host of games. The bingo games are separated by tabs in the lobby, so all you have to do is choose what type of game and bingo you want to play and then click on the tab.

Each ticket shows the price of the card, what type of bingo (75 ball or 90 ball), when the next game will begin, how many players are in the room and if the room has a chat host.

24 randomly generated bingo tickets will be displayed on the screen in batches of six tickets at a time. To scroll through the tickets, use the left and right arrow buttons at the top left of the card display area.

The current batch will be shown in the left navigation panel, for example, 'cards 7-12 of 24'. To select or deselect a card, simply click on the card. The number of cards that you have selected will also be displayed on the navigation panel. You can choose different cards by clicking the 'GET NEW CARDS' button at the top of the card display area.

This will provide you with a set of 24 new randomly generated unselected cards.

You can auto-select card in batches of 6, 12, 18, 24 or the maximum number of cards, this means you don’t have to click on each card.

Once you are happy with your selected cards, click on the 'BUY SELECTED CARDS' button situated on the left of the screen. Subject to funds, this will complete your card purchase. Please note that card purchases are non-refundable and all sales are final. The navigation panel also displays the number of cards you have purchased for the next game.

Each purchased card will display a number at the bottom of the card, for example, 122235761. This number is a reference for both yourself and our customer services team. You have until 10 seconds prior to the start of next game to purchase bingo cards for that game.

You can pre-buy cards to some of our jackpot games. To get your cards in advance, enter the room and purchase your cards the same way you’d buy into a normal game. At the top of the screen you will find the number of players, jackpot and time remaining until the game starts. The game name and card to complete is displayed at the top.

The screen will announce when a game is about to begin. The room shows the cards you have purchased in batches of 6. You can scroll between your cards by clicking the left and right arrow buttons above the cards. The current batch of cards is also displayed as, for example, 'cards 1-12 of 24'.

You can see how many people have bought into the game and the jackpot amount at the top of the screen. You can choose to display from 3TG by clicking the 'OPTIONS' menu at the top and selecting the 'In Game' option. Then you can tick “Show 3TG”. This shows when you have three numbers to go before your card has been completed a BINGO! After being selected, all cards with 3, 2 or 1 number to go will be indicated.

In order to select Autodaub, simply click on the 'OPTIONS' menu at the top of the card display area and selecting the 'In Game' option. Then you can tick 'Autodaub'. When it's on, the game automatically marks or "daubs" your card every time your numbers are called out so you don’t have to! When this button is off, your card numbers are not automatically daubed, so you can mark them manually by clicking the number on the card.

Called numbers are marked in white if they form part of the required Bingo pattern for the current game played. Bear in mind that whether you daub the numbers or not, and how you daub them has no effect on the game outcome. IF YOU HAVE A WINNING BINGO CARD YOU WILL WIN!

When the game starts, a slight pause will occur before the balls are called out. After being randomly drawn, the balls are shown at the top left of the screen, accompanied by a voice announcing the numbers if you have your sound switched on. Each ball called is displayed on the bingo board, and the last 5 calls are displayed to the left.

At the end of the game, "BINGO!" will be announced and the winning alias(es) will be presented. When you win, your winnings will automatically be added. You will then automatically be shown the next game screen after a short time, or after you click "OK".

A few other things to note - you can alternate between having the sound on and off. Simply click on the sound icon in the top right hand section of the screen. If you need any assistance during the game, click on '?' in the top right hand section of the screen. Once you have finished playing bingo then simply click 'x' in the top right hand corner to exit.
