In other news, do you perhaps feel a tad confused about the bingo variants listed above? Let’s then quickly run through them!

Normal Lockout

Your typical game of lockout bingo. The first to reach 13 goals win, and once a player clicks one goal, it is ‘locked’ from the other player, meaning they cannot click it themselves.

Row Control

A special type of lockout bingo where points are not counted as individual goals, but as rows that are ‘controlled’, since each goal clicked is then locked out to the other player. A row is considered controlled once a player has 3 goals within any row, and a player needs to control 3 rows to win.


Quite the special type of lockout bingo! At the beginning of the game, players are only allowed to click a goal that is on the outer borders of the border. Once a player clicks a first goal on one side of the square, that player is then only allowed to click on goals on that row/column that they clicked on, and the very next one. Meanwhile, the other player will be forced to play with goals from the other side. As the game progresses and goals are clicked, the players ‘unlock’ goals that they are allowed to click on, until the full board is clickable – hence, it is being ‘invaded’.

Draft Lockout

Another special type of lockout bingo! Before starting the match, the players select 5 goals for which ONLY them will be able to click for the first 30 minutes of the match, after which they are free to claim by anyone. The draft starts with a coin flip to decide who will start the selection, after which said player has one minute to decide a goal (if they take more time, their opponent gets to pick that goal!), after which the other player selects their goal, and vice versa until all their goals are selected.

Lockout with Connect 5

In this type of bingo, players can win by either being the first to reach 13 goals, like in normal lockout, or to simply get a line of 5 (ie, a bingo!).

As you can see, there is going to be a lot of variety for this event – and trust us, there is more that Bingothon has in store for you in the future to satisfy that bingo hunger! Do make sure to follow us on Twitter, Twitch and YouTube if you haven’t already, as well as join our Discord server!
