Although not considered a traditional casino game, more and more casino vendors online are now adding new fun and interactive games to their lineups that can be played for real money. Previously, online casinos were at large limited to games such as blackjack and roulette but since 2014 that has largely changed due to ongoing consumer demand to bring other games traditionally played at gambling halls or bingo halls to the online world where payouts are generous and the experience personalized.
One of these leading online vendors now includes Royal Vegas, which as of mid 2015 updated its site not only in design but also in the variety of games it offers. Under the “Casual Games” section on the site there are now 6 main types of bingo games out of the overall 18 games to choose from. Having gone through all the games ourselves, lets take a look at the different types and see which ones capture your interest. We will also provide our own recommendation, and give you a bit of a background on Royal Vegas to help you make the best decision for choosing the right platform for playing Real Money Bingo.
This game combines bingo and roulette. The setup looks like a roulette machine but combines colorful balls that are rolled out from a bingo machine onto the roulette platform in which they spin. You then get to bet on combinations of colors and numbers that will fall both on bingo cards and in the roulette portion, with each bet increasing the jackpot respectively. This game is easy to follow, typically pays out well, and is considered a bit revolutionary in its creation of a new form of bingo gambling.

This is a traditional bingo setup with multiple card options and wining probabilities.

Bonuses on this game as the name implies and credit amount can either decrease or increase suddenly depending on your luck. For the quickest possible results this game may be your best bet.

Choosing your game
For us we typically switched between Super Bonus Bingo and Ballistic Bingo probably due to our need for something more exciting and thrilling. We certainly didn’t mind the more traditional games but nevertheless found ourselves drawn to something faster paced. Once in a while it was nice to switch to the Spingo section for variety to switch things up and diversify our winnings.
