Three is Your Lucky Number in Beetle Bingo

Playing online bingo doesn’t have to be boring. All you have to do is log on to 12BET’s website and look for “Beetle Bingo”.

In this game, your aim is to get a winning five-number combination. Click “Play”, scratch the three rows of leaves, and reveal three rows of five-number combinations. You’ll see a group of 15 number-carrying, colorful beetles flying out from their little bottle and lining up one-by-one at the bottom of the screen.

Each beetle corresponds to a winning number. If you get a winning five-number combination (like 8-38-73-23-11 in the screenshot above), you will get the corresponding prize.

As you can see, the number 3 is a recurring theme in the game. Beetle Bingo allows you to purchase up to three cards. That means you also have three chances of winning. (You can shuffle your three cards as you wish, so you’ll increase your chances of hitting the jackpot.) Even the interface is divided into three objects: the bottle containing the beetles, your current scratch card, and numbers from 1 to 90.

Speaking of which, the game has a well-designed interface, and it’s not just because of the bright colors jumping out at you. You can keep track of everything at once without hurting your eyes: your bet, the cards you have on hand, your winnings, etc.

It’s a long shot, but you could try getting a combination where all 15 beetles correspond to all 15 numbers on the card. You’ll win not only money, but also bragging rights to your fellow players!
