Bingo Garden – Coin Digger is a new bingo game for the iOS and Android platforms that plays like classic bingo, except with a significant twist. This game and those who developed it claim that you can win real life money by playing it. Not only that, but they claim that you can win a significant amount of money for not a whole lot of playing time.
Are you able to, though? Is Bingo Garden – Coin Digger a scam or legit? This is the question that we are going to be taking a deep dive into for the rest of this article.
To start, the gameplay is classic bingo without any real twists. There are no power ups to help you find more combos on the board. You simply wait for a ball with your number, then you tap the spot that corresponds. then you wait for the next ball that has a number on your board, then you tap that one too.
When you make five consecutive spaces across, you will get a bingo. If you make five spaces in a diagonal from lower left to upper right or from upper left to lower right, you will also get a bingo. If you make an entire vertical line of five, you will also get a bingo.
There are a few other ways to get a bingo, as well. If you fill in all four of the corner spaces, there, combined with the middle space, will count for a bingo. Additionally, of course, if you manage to fill in every single space on the board, you will get a suitably large bonus.
You can play with multiple bingo tickets at a time, unlike most other mobile bingo games. You can play with either one, two, or four tickets; make sure that you are able to keep up with however many tickets you choose.
If you play multiple bingo cards at a time, then the balls that come across the top of the screen will apply to all of your bingo boards. This can make it seem like every ball that pops across the screen is worth some thing, but this can also make the action frantic if you have one more applying to all four boards at a time.
Unlike other bingo games that claim to earn you money, Bingo Garden – Coin Digger does not pit you against other players for wagering. There are no one-on-one matches, and there are no tournaments in this game. Instead, you simply play a game of bingo on your own, and the winnings seem to pile up; in fact, they pile up very quickly.
The speed at which the earnings pile up might make you question whether you’re actually earning the money or not. In bingo games where you compete against other players, you wager money, then you earn a little bit of money. In this game, seemingly every bingo earns you a ton of money.
Quick winnings and fast money, believe it or not, are actually generally a negative sign when it comes to figuring out whether the game is legit or a scam. If the developer paid out everybody who won, then they would go bankrupt immediately, so they’re definitely not paying everyone. Are they paying anyone?
To figure this out, go to the reviews in the App Store and see what people are saying. In the case of this game, people are saying that they are having a lot of trouble getting their money. Nobody has posted that they have actually gotten their money, but plenty of people have either said that it’s an endless loop of errors, or that they lost their data and had the rug pulled from under them.
To corroborate this even further, you can go to the review section for the version of this game that is on the platform that you’re not playing on. Use your browser to navigate to the Apple App Store if you’re using Android, or to the Google Play Store if you’re using iOS, and read the reviews there, and you will see the same thing.
The game claims that you can cash out once you hit $1000, which typically happens within less than an hour after downloading and beginning the game. As easy as it is to hit the threshold, it would be completely unsustainable for a developer to pay everybody who tried to cash out. That alone should make it obvious that they are not gonna pay.
As a matter of fact, for the sake of experimentation, we played this game until hitting the threshold to cash out. Once we made it to $1000, we went to the cash out screen and tried to cash out with our PayPal. As expected, the money never hit our account.
This is the same thing that is happening to many other players. Additionally, a common happening is that some players download the game, or players who have already downloaded the game decide to update it, and all references to earning money are taken out. The cash is changed into gems, and all evidence that the game ever claimed it to pay out is erased.
With all of that being said, we feel confident in ruling that this game is a scam. There is simply no way to get the money that the game tells you that you are earning, or to earn it like the advertisements claim that you would be able to. This is simply just a semi-fun bingo game with a low pressure playing style and not too many advertisements.
Taken without the expectation to earn money, this can be played simply as a bingo game where you are not required to watch advertisements if you don’t want to, and you can play endlessly without having to take a break for anything or close any pop-up windows. By that standard, it’s a fun game, but you are not going to win any money.
