Last month when I interviewed Paul Gielbert from Eyecon, he mentioned that they were working on a brand new slot game themed around a classic bingo hall. It sounded like a lot of fun.
This week that game was finally revealed as a Paddy Power Bingo exclusive; Paddy's Full House.
I took the game for a spin and this is how I got on:
Eyecon have absolutely nailed it with this one. The graphics and sound effects are spot on, down to the dings of the slot machines in the background, to the calls of "slow down" from the crowd of bingo punters. Paddy Power voiceover man (Alistair McGowan) does the calls, with those extra background sounds voiced by TV legend Greg Scott.
I found myself just smiling throughout, and of course it helps that I came away with a little profit at the end!
Although it looks very different from Eyecon's flagship game, Fluffy Favourites, the RTP and the frequency of landing the bonus all feels very familiar.
The bonus round where you pick numbers on the prize bingo card is not ground breaking, but it's fun and fits perfectly with the bingo theme. All in all, this game goes straight in there as one of my favourites so far this year.
'My Bingo Hall' version coming soon
After playing the game I caught up with Paul Gielbert to congratulate him on the new release. He informs me that the game is currently an exclusive to Paddy Power but they are releasing a more generic version to go up across other sites in August, which will be called 'My Bingo Hall'.
The Paddy Power version had a lot of work done to customise it to their branding and with Alistair McGowan providing the voiceover work as he does with all the Paddy Power adverts (you didn't know that was Alistair McGowan did you? Well, you do now!)
In the My Bingo Hall release, the voiceover work will be done by TV legend Greg Scott, who most recently did the intro video to the new Prize Land Bingo website.
