Microsoft Studios brings classic Bingo to Windows 8

Microsoft Bingo

Few weeks back, Microsoft Studios released yet another casual, and free, Xbox game for Windows 8 devices. Microsoft Bingo is a fun, travel-themed take on the classic game of chance. In the game, you travel the globe playing your way through a variety of exotic locales and extraordinary settings as you fill your card.

As you go along, you earn Flight Points to level up and unlock exciting new locations to visit. Also, by playing in different locations, you can collect an array of souvenirs, earning you special awards as you complete your souvenir collections. With every feat you accomplish in the game, from calling a Bingo to making a winning bet on a Power Card, you'll earn special prizes in the form of Luggage.

The game has a great community feel to it making it even more engaging. When you place bets on specific numbers on the Power Card prior to matches, match your daubs to your Power Card picks during a round to get a Power Bingo.

With each Power Bingo awarded, the community comes one step closer to its weekly goal. Helping your fellow players in hitting the weekly goal also gets you special rewards.

Download Microsoft Bingo for free from the Windows Store. If you are a fan of Bingo (or variants of the game like Lotto or Tombola) like me, its great fun and very addictive. It’s available for free, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t give it a whirl. Let us know how you like it.

Hopefully will comes to.windwos phone 8 in a few months. Can imagine it being difficult to play 12 cards at a time though on a tiny screen. Also, the community aspect of the game is beat. You can click a button to see who is calling bongos each round. Basically in any given fame, there is like you and two other people playing. And then like 200 AI bots. Pretty lame.IMO. They also keep.updating the game to increase the amount of annoying freemium features....

I've been playing this on my Surface RT for months now. It's ok, but if you have over 4 cards you have to scroll up and down to daub your numbers, which is unbelieveably annoying. They could spread the cards out horizontally but then there wouldn't be room for the ads for Microsoft Solitaire and Mahjong. /s

well from your comment, all I get is you dont know exactly what sarcasm is. but nice try, and I find the game fine... you are just lazy, thats all, you cant even try to move your finger to play a game, yeah how annoying is that... rightt

Solitarie and mahjong, those perfectly written games that drain you battery in 30 mins....i can't wait to try another shitty game from microsoft

Its a decent time waster. Anything more than 4 cards is crazy though, lol. Unless you can afford automatic on all of them.

Had this for a few days, it is a bit challenging with several cards at once. I wish you had more info on who you were playing against than just seeing a countdown as people get Bingo.
