Some Rooms limit which Power-ups you can use. For example, the Seasonal Rooms such as Skate Date will limit Power-ups such as the Shuffler. Bingo Drive will tell you to “Buy More” Power-ups if you don’t have enough Power-ups to play a specific room, you have run out of Power-ups or due to connectivity issues. You can check how many Power-ups you have by going to your Currency Wallet.
Bingo Drive offers special Rounds where if you play, you will get a Double Payout. This means that when playing this Round, it will double the amount of Bingo Credits and Coins earned. Double Payouts will have a Countdown Timer telling you how long you have left to play the game, once the Timer runs out, you can no longer play the Double Payout round.
The Lightning Bolt is a Unique Power-up. Your Power-up Bar will take 2 Daubs to Charge and will cool down twice as fast giving you a better chance of calling Bingo.
