# Rival Powered Bingo

## Introduction

This game presented a problem in how to title it. The game itself is titled just bingo. However, I already write about live bingo and didn't want to confuse my readers between that and this game created by Rival Powered. For lack of a better idea, I shall call this game Rival Powered Bingo.

Rival Powered bingo is not played against other players but only against the ball draw of the game, much like in keno. The player may choose a 30, 75, 80, or 90 number game. Within each game, there are three choices for the number of balls. The fewer the balls, the greater the wins.

In all games only the highest win per card is paid. For purposes of this game a "line" is vertical or diagonal. Diagonal lines are treated separately. Also, contrary to what the rules may imply, a double bingo must consist of one vertical and one horizontal line.

The player may play 1 to 100 cards and may bet 1¢, 5¢, 10¢, 25¢, 50¢, or \$1 per card. However, the total amount bet may not exceed \$20.

## 30 Numbers

The 30-number game is played on a 3 by 3 card. The only win is for a coverall. The player may choose to have 20, 22, or 24 numbers drawn. The fewer the balls, the more the player stands to win.

The following three tables shows the probability and return of all possible wins for 20, 22, and 24 balls respectively. The greatest return is for 20 balls at 93.92%.

The online rules don't make this clear, but a double bingo must be one horizontal and one vertical bingo.
