What is Fluffy Favourites Bingo?
Fluffy Favourites Bingo was originally a 90 ball bingo variant available exclusively on Playtech bingo sites based around the popular Fluffy Favourites online slot game. However, in December 2020 another variant of the game appeared on the Entain-owned Electraworks platform.
Usually when an IP such as Fluffy Favourites is turned into a bingo game, there is some kind of exclusivity to the software provider who built the game. It is therefore a bit unusual to see another bingo game themed to Fluffy Favourites appear on another platform.
As a result, I'll have to split this review into two parts:
- Fluffy Favourites Bingo (Playtech version)
- Fluffy Favourites Bingo (Electraworks version)
If you wish to read about the newer version, scroll down to section 2.
1. Fluffy Favourites Bingo (Playtech version)
The original version of Fluffy Favourites Bingo is a 90 ball bingo variant . It features a progressive jackpot and a 'Fluffy's Friends' feature game that takes place at the end of each game.
Because this particular game is very cute & cuddly with cartoon animal characters that may appeal to children, some screenshots have been censored to hide any cartoon animals!
How to play
Once you've bought your tickets, the game plays like any regular 90 ball bingo game. First there is a one line prize, then two lines followed by a full house. Occasionally there will be 1TG or 2TG games played in this room, which means every player who didn't win the full house but had tickets that were only 1 to go (or 2 to go) from winning, get a share of a small community pot.
Once these regular prizes have been dished out, it is time for the 'Fluffy Friends' feature game.
Fluffy Friends Feature
At the end of the bingo game, the player who won full house gets to take part in a special Fluffy Friends feature game. It will appear on screen for everyone to see, but only the winner will get to select the various options, depending on what outcome they get. If multiple players win full house, the feature game will play automatically.
The feature begins as a 3 reel spinner. If the player matches three symbols on the reels, then one of four different bonus rounds will be triggered:
- Claw icons: Toy Grabber bonus game.
- Tent icons: Floating Fluffy's bonus game.
- Coin icons: Coin Pusher bonus game.
- Rocket icons: Fluffy In Space bonus game.
If the player does not match any symbols, the game ends and no bonus round is activated.
Toy Grabber bonus round
If the player matches three claw icons, the toy grabber bonus game is triggered.
Here we see a traditional toy grabber arcade machine with loads of fluffy toys at the bottom of the screen. The screen is split into four sections and the player gets to choose which area of the screen to drop the toy grabber. If it manages to pick up a toy, this is dropped into the chute and a prize value will be unveiled for that specific toy.
It isn't explained in detail but I assume different toys have different prize values.
Floating Fluffys bonus round
In this round the scene is of a hook-a-duck style carnival stall, with four different fluffy toys floating in the water. The player gets to select which toy to pick out of the water, and obviously this then reveals a specific prize.
It is worth noting this room is one of the most popular games on the Playtech network, and as a result often these prizes for the bonus rounds do stretch to £100 and above.
Coin Pusher bonus round
I haven't seen this one yet myself, but I can imagine it looking like one of those arcade machines where you drop pennies into it which then push other pennies over the edge. I'll update this review when I get to see how exactly it plays out!
Fluffy in Space bonus round
This final bonus game is themed around the Fluffy In Space slot but I've yet to see it action first hand. However, I did manage to grab this screengrab below from when I entered the room just as the prize money was being dished out.
It's important to note that this prize you see below was given out to the community, rather than the full house winner, so it is possible even if you don't win you could still be quids in from this particular bonus.
Which sites have Fluffy Favourites Bingo (Playtech)?
Fluffy Bingo is so popular, it's available on pretty much every Playtech bingo site, including:
It is open daily from 11.00am - 1.00am.
2. Fluffy Favourites Bingo (Electraworks version)
This newer Fluffy Faves bingo game was released in December 2020 and appeared across all of the Electraworks bingo sites, such as Foxy Bingo, Coral and Ladbrokes.
It is totally different to the Playtech version, so allow me to explain how it all works.
How to play
This version of Fluffy Faves Bingo is a 36 ball bingo game, but instead of numbers being called, there are cute animal characters each holding a different coloured balloon. There are 6 different colours and 6 different animals, making it a 36 ball game in total.
Each of the animals is contained within a bubble. When the game begins, animals will appear in the middle of the game and if they match any of your animals then a rainbow flies out and pops that bubble.
The objective is to be the first player to pop the balloons of one row or column of animals (1 line) and then all 12 animals (full house).
The layout and gameplay is very similar to Morph from tombola, in that the symbols are arranged like four sides of a square, and the symbol being called appears in the middle.
At the start of the game you can set your own ticket price:
The higher the ticket price, the higher the prize pot. Each player only gets one ticket, so everyone has the same chance of winning, regardless of how much they paid.
Toy Grabber Bonus Round
At the end of each game, the player who won full house gets to play a bonus round. I'm not sure if there are multiple varieties of bonus round (like on the Playtech version) but on the Electraworks game I played it was always a round called Toy Grabber.
A toy grabber game appears and the screen is split into 6 section. The player picks a section and then the grabber goes and picks up a toy to reveal a bonus prize. When I played the game the different animals represented different values, with the Lion being the one you didn't want to pick up as this meant you don't win anything.
- Elephant: £50
- Hippo: £25
- Dragon: £10
- Bear: £1
- Panda: 50p
- Lion: No Win
