Mega Ball Game Review
Combining elements of lottery and bingo, Mega Ball is an exclusive and very impressive online game produced by Evolution. Although the game mechanic resembles a bingo game, the ball drawing mechanism more closely matches that of a lottery.
In fact this game claims to be neither. Available to play at several licensed online betting sites in SA, the game appeals to bingo and lottery enthusiasts alike. As part of Evolution’s live casino game show series, it features a live dealer and delivers endless entertainment indeed. And just like other live casino game shows, Mega Ball is also incredibly simple to play. The objective is to complete lines on allocated cards, with a chance of winning a payout up to 1,000,000x! Of course that doesn’t happen all the time. But you have far better chances of winning in this game compared to a standard lottery. Additionally, game rounds are swift, yet the game delivers sufficient anticipation to please a broad range of entertainment seekers.
Where can I play live Mega Ball?

How to play
Each Mega Ball game round starts with players setting the stake value and choosing the number of cards to play. Up to 200 cards are available to play per game round. The card generation is random, each consisting of 24 numbers, ranging from 1 to 51 and arranged in a 5×5 layout. Whereas the middle position on each card is free and completes any line passing through it. Winning lines can be horizontal, vertical, also diagonal andconsist of up to 5 numbers. Finally, each card can have up to 9 winning lines.
First set your desired stake and select up to 200 cards to play in the game round. Once you have chosen a bundle, you can still add more cards and also change the stake for all cards. Additionally, while betting is open you can regenerate any card by selecting it and clicking the ‘Refresh Numbers’ button.
Betting then closes and the ball drawing mechanism starts the draw. From here on out, you really don’t have to do much more than just watch the game unfold. And maybe, also cross those fingers. 20 balls are then drawn from a total of 51 and the anticipation builds. Ball numbers matching those on your cards get automatically marked off when selected. Additionally, as winning lines form on your cards, corresponding winning amounts update below each card. Also, the cards with the greatest winning potential move to the top. Lastly, there is an indicator for the numbers still in the draw which would complete a winning line.
Mega Ball bonus
Adding one more touch of excitement, each game round concludes with the Mega Ball bonus draw. One or two bonus rounds are possible and follow the initial draw of 20 balls. This then determines your final winning amount for the game round by including additional multipliers. Before the bonus ball draw the multiplier value, ranging from 5x to 100x is randomly determined. A ball is now drawn to set the associated number. With the Mega Ball completing any line on a card, the payout value for that card increases by the multiplier.
Mega Ball payouts
Payouts in live Mega Ball are based on the number of winning lines completed per card. The following payouts are the standard values, without the bonus multiplier included.
