Now let’s take a glance at special features:
Free Balls – you can win up to 5 free balls after activating the double line. All of the extra balls can become free balls, and you will know this thanks to a blue pop up message on the screen.
Wild Ball – This feature allows players to receive a wild ball at random. After a regular ball has been purchased, it has a chance to turn into Wild. You can then increase your winning odds after selecting any uncalled numbers. If you’re lucky, the screen will display an image of the orange cat signifying Wild Ball.
Bonus game – This game activates after a certain bonus pattern has been achieved. A 5-level shelf with maneki cats is displayed, with all of the kittens colored differently depending on their values. If one of them has an exit sign, the game will end. On the other hand, if the selected cat hides an award you get to progress to the next level, so the point of the game is to win as many prizes as you can.
Jackpot – in order to activate this feature, the player must have all four tickets enabled, and when the first 30 balls are picked, the prize is awarded. Keep in mind that this feature can get you up 5000x the bet.
All in all, this is looking up to be a really fun video bingo game by Neko Games. With the ever-popular Oriental theme and well-thought-out features, we are certain that Pachinko will provide a great experience.
