Paylines are so 2010. It seems that slot developers are finally dropping the whole concept of paylines and have started to adopt the concept of paying players via ‘cluster’ wins. Don’t worry, as complicated as this concept sounds, it is actually really easy to grasp. In fact, we feel that this concept is easier to understand that the paylines. Essentially, you win money when you get a minimum number of the same symbols when they appear next to each other on your reels. The larger your ‘win cluster’ the more money that you will win. If that wasn’t cool enough, the Aloha Cluster Pays slot is set somewhere on a beach near Hawaii! Anybody up for another beach trip?!

UK’s Responsible Gambling Trust (also known as Gamble Aware) recently had one of its advertisements banned. The ad received complaints from viewers for its “predatory and sexually abusive” nature, prompting the Advertising Standards Authority to investigate. The gambling industry is no stranger to advertising debates—provocative ones especially—but this particular ban was a rare one from the other side of the fence. It was not online casinos or gambling sites that crossed the line, but the gambling association group. How was the advertisement offensive? Where do we draw the line? Zingo Bingo’s news team discusses below.

As long as gambling has been a thing (which, let’s be honest, is a very long time), there’s been lore surrounding the supposed luck of the Irish. Whether it’s the leprechauns, shamrocks, or rainbows with pots of gold at the end of them, the emerald isle has always been associated with good luck, and as such has been a trope in gambling game design for decades.

The Google Play Store has finally caught up with Apple’s App Store, allowing players to download and play online bingo and casino apps directly from their store. Whilst the App Store has been hosting online bingo apps for years, Google Play has been far more cautious with its policy on gambling apps, having banned them a few years ago. Until now, bingo players had been forced to download bingo apps from each bingo operator’s own site, but now they can find all their favourite bingo games one one single platform.

Over the past decade, online bingo has grown exponentially. This is a fact that noone can refute, however traditional bingo fans have often clung onto the idea that nothing compares to the real life experience of playing in a bricks and mortar bingo hall. Here at Zingo Bingo we love online bingo the most, obviously, but we would never argue that the two can be compared. That being said, new figures show a stark contrast between high street bingo revenue and digital bingo revenue. The data comes courtesy of Rank Group, the owners of two of the UK's biggest high street gaming brands (Mecca and Grosvenor Casinos), and shows that online bingo's popularity is far exceeding that of traditional play.
