Blackout Bingo – game instructions and rules

So how do you play Skillz Blackout Bingo? Here’s how the game works.

The game includes a Bingo board with 5 rows and 5 columns.

Every column is named by a letter, “B”, “I”, “N”, “G” and “O”, which connects to the game name – Bingo.

In every column you will see numbers. The numbers shown on the left columns are always lower then the right columns.

Once the games starts, a timer will set of and numbers circled with color and letters will pop out every second. The letters represent the column you should check out.

If the number is matching to the one your board, you will want to press that number to mark it.

You can have a bingo once you marked a whole:

  • 4 Corners
  • Diagonal
  • Row
  • Column.

Your goal is to mark as many corners, diagonals, rows and columns in effort to eventually fill in the entire board.

Once you fill the entire board the timer will stop and the game will end, or alternatively the timer will end before you complete the board.

Collecting more numbers and points with Power Ups

What is a Power up in Blackout Bingo?

A power up is a special ability you receive when you mark numbers fast enough.

Your goal is to daub (mark the numbers) as fast as possible to when they are shown up so you will gain more Power Points.

Every power point adds up to your total score and your power up index, which will give you special skills you can use throughout the game.

  1. I just started playing g this game. I have been faithfully playing Block blitz and I went to the skillz app and saw this game. So far I like it. Harder then I thought. It would be nice if you could earn bonuses for cash after a while once I. A while you get a bonus with deposit but not often and it would be good if it were more often and on lower deposits. BUT I LOVE SKILLZ!! I hit black teir and my new coin so Hoodie and hat next.. thanks skillz

  2. When exactly does the 2X start its 10sec. doubling of my score from a running total or activate it before I know I am going to bingo? And how do the point categories determine your earned scores before subtotal and submitted.
    I’m really sorry, but this is interesting to me.

  3. How is a 86-yr. old guy able to win at BB when his reflexes have slowed down due to age and cannot “daub” fast enough to earn the “fast daub” designation and have to settle for the “nice daub” more frequently???

    Reply
    • That’s a hard one. We can’t make the game slow down or change that time allotted for receiving the perfect or nice or fast daub. Maybe just with more practice rounds on the free play you can get your reflexes to get stronger and then you may be able to daub quicker. Or maybe getting a stylus so that way you can reach a lil further and gets you closer to the numbers. So shorter the distance your arm has to move the less time it will take to daub. I hope this helps.

    • You won’t. I’m 68, I can get perfect daubs. Practice, you might surprise yourself. I still haven’t figured out all the power ups. Watch you tube videos. For single head matchups to win 200, these guys are masters: 18,000 points regularly. Hitting the bingo button is the very end. Free daubs, extra time, bingo where you specify the next number (But I don’t remember which are best!) 2x I don’t get yet. The best are super fast and use the power ups optimally. I’d get walked in right now. And I’m 10x better than I was a week ago. I’m not sure a partner wouldn’t help. Take a screen shot, I just think another trained brain could come in handy but coordination would have to be perfect. You’re not going to win $100’s of dollars every game without being really really good. Learn what that means. But at 88? They thank you according to your ability. You won’t play against the YouTube wizard I saw. Not even me now. Me a couple weeks ago.

      • Thank you for your comments. I am 70 yrs old and l love bingo but realized I am slow in daubing. I want to play the dollar games but don’t understand what they mean by entering password when entering your email. I created password but that doesn’t work. So, I only play the practice games which is fun but would like to play to win real cash. Don’t understand the X2 and free dauber just started playing about 2 weeks ago when l found this. Good luck to you!

  4. A little big of a advanced question, but what determines what power up comes out when you get your power bar full??

    Reply
  5. Can someone please explain to me the proper way to use the ‘freeze time’ bonus? I’m not exactly sure when I should use it, and I hate to waste power-ups. Thanks in advance.
