The main events are the games where you have the chance of winning the £50,000 Big Buzz Special. There’s a final Late Night Bingo session at 21:15 and it’s another electronic session.
There is another bingo game obtainable, but it’s only obtainable online at Buzz Bingo and this is the Twilight Bingo room. If you prefer playing online, then you can check this room out in addition as Bingo Cove whose team reviews online bingo sites.
