Immortal Romance Bingo
Online gaming software supplier Microgaming has launched a new Bingo game based on its Immortal Romance online slot game. Immortal Romance Bingo offers four different themed games, each led by the familiar characters Amber, Troy, Sarah and Michael. Microgaming said that it was a new community gaming concept centered on the Immortal Romance online slot game originally released in 2011. In addition to standard line prizes, the game includes a revolutionary Jackpot Wheel labeled the Chamber of Wins. During traditional gameplay, players collect Medallion numbers to charge a power-up bar that helps to unlock the Chamber of Wins. Once unlocked, four different Jackpot prizes are up for grabs. These range from cash prizes to free spins on the Immortal Romance online slot game. “We are constantly striving to deliver innovative, unique software developments that focus on frequent and differentiated player rewards, to ensure that our operators can stand out from the crowd,” said David Reynolds, head of Bingo at Microgaming. “Immortal Romance Bingo does exactly this, and we are very proud of what we have created.”
Calexico, CA considers Bingo
Bingo was the name of the game at a recent Calexico, California, City Council meeting, when council members revisited consideration to amend Calexico’s municipal code on the staging of Bingo games in the city. First presented at a 2013 council meeting, the ordinance would allow licensed organizations to conduct traditional Bingo games seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to midnight. The existing city ordinance only allowed for games to be held twice per week. The ordinance would also clarify exactly which kind of organizations would be allowed licenses to conduct the games.
