Max’s Hi/Lo Game Show is a new game based on number predictions, including a progressive jackpot.
Paddy Power Bingo's Max’s Bingo Ball Machine contains 50 balls, numbered from 1 to 50. After the first ball comes out of the Bingo Ball Machine, the player has to predict whether the next ball’s value will be higher or lower than the current ball’s value. The player is offered varying cash amounts as to whether the next ball’s value will be higher or lower based on the current ball’s value. These amounts are displayed in the Hi and Lo buttons. Each time the player makes their selection, the ball drawn from the Bingo Ball Machine is placed back into it and can be drawn again. If the same ball is drawn, this is classified as a losing game.
Every time the player makes a correct prediction, the respective winning amount is added to the cashpot which can be collected or used as the starting stake for the next round. When the prediction is incorrect, the total amount in the cashpot is lost and the player must start again with a new stake. For every prediction, a different bet has to be staked.
Stake Amounts and Payouts
The ranges of values that can be initially staked are:
£0.10 / £0.20 / £0.50 / £1 / £2 / £3 / £4 / £5
The turbo button placed at the bottom left of the screen allows the player to speed up the entire game process. It can be turned on and off at any moment by the player by simply clicking on it. The button will be lit when turbo mode is on.
The maximum payout per game play is set to £25,000. Should a player reach the maximum payout, they will have the option of continuing (rolling over). If the player wishes to rollover, they will cash out the £25,000 amount minus their original stake for the rollover and the jackpot trail will remain in its current state. The player can then continue to select Hi/Lo to try and win the jackpot. If the player doesn’t choose to rollover, they will be paid the maximum win of £25,000 and the jackpot trail will go back down to zero with no consecutive numbers.
The jackpot is won by making either 9 consecutive Hi or 9 consecutive Lo predictions. Making 9 correct predictions does not trigger the jackpot. All predictions, from the first one until the ninth, have to be either Hi or Lo. This jackpot is initially funded at £5,000 and each day at around midnight it increases based on stakes from the previous day. If a player wins the jackpot, it must be verified and will be paid manually to the player’s Bingo Account. This process may take up to 72 hours.
When a player becomes disconnected or closes the game with an outstanding bet, the game will be stored until the player returns to complete the game. The average Return to Player (RTP) for this game is 95%.
