Brief Overview of Mega Ball Live
Released in 2020, Mega Ball is a unique live casino game. The game draws most of its inspiration from bingo, although it has a few elements of keno. In this live game show, the hostess/host will welcome you inside the studio with a ball-drawing machine with 51 numbered balls. You’ll also see 5×5 bingo cards below the screen. The idea is to mark numbers when the 20 balls are drawn one by one from the machine.
Players must wager 0.10 to 100 credits to play Mega Ball. Players who mark six or more winning lines can win the maximum payout of 100000x the stake. However, the developer limits the maximum payout at $500,000, which is still among the highest in the iGaming industry. Sadly, the 95.30% RTP is slightly below average.
