How long does it take to play a game of Music Bingo?
Unfortunately, there is no exact science as to how long a game of Music Bingo will take to play as there are many factors involved. Some of these include: How many players are playing (the more, the quicker) How long you play each song (we typically recommend 20 to 30 seconds per song, but if a game is getting a great audience response, don't take that away from them :) Chatter/interaction between songs by the host or other interruptions How inebriated the players are ;) How complex y

Meet Jumbotron - Use Videos for Music Bingo Games
If you are looking to incorporate videos into your music bingo game, meet the Jumbotron. Jumbotron creates an all in one entertainment screen for your music bingo game. Bringing together a video, game code and the last three songs played, this is a great visual asset to have in your venue alongside your Rockstar Bingo game. Jumbotron allows you to choose individual videos to be played with individual songs, or choose one default video which plays throughout your music bingo game. Check out our
Manual Bingo Verification (Disable Bingo Verification)
What it is You have the option to manually verify bingos as of April 13, 2022. This means that your Rockstar Bingo game can either validate bingos for you or YOU can validate bingos - this means it will be down to you to check if a player has got a bingo (and in many cases, this is a desirable thing). This means that you will be able to create custom targets such as a cross or initial of someone's name, and check if someone has got the bingo manually. How it works You will still be
How to keep order and set start times on a playlist
The best way to do this is within your Rockstar Bingo account and ‘create a custom playlist’. Then, import the playlist you have created from Spotify by connecting your Spotify account and ensuring that you have created or ‘saved’ the playlist you want. The playlist must have 75 songs or more in it to work. Next, tick the box ‘Maintain playlist order when creating games’ and this will allow you to drag and drop the songs into the order you would like and keep this order. You ca
How can I just use song names on my music bingo cards?
You can create a different game of music bingo with increased intensity. Rockstar Bingo allows you to toggle off the artist names from the bingo cards. This allows you to host a game with just song titles, and no artist names. To remove the artist names, head to settings inside your Rockstar Bingo account and tick the box saying 'hide artist'.
What happens when a player wins music bingo?
When a player calls bingo correctly, Rockstar Bingo automatically verifies the bingo, the scoreboard is updated and confetti appears across the screen for all players. When manually verifying Rockstar Bingo (tickbox in settings), the host has to manually check the called bingo. If the bingo is accepted, confetti will appear across all player screens.
What order are the cards displayed in the lobby page?
When hosting your Rockstar Bingo game, you have always been able to check the progress of players and how many songs they have daubed on their card. Active players in the lobby screen are now sorted by their correct song square count. The count includes both daubed correct squares and also correct squares that they have missed daubing. Basically the sort order is 'who should be winning'.
Does Rockstar Bingo have suggestions for Playlists?
While any Spotify playlist with over 75 songs will work for your games (making sure of course that you manage any duplicates of songs in those playlists ...), we continue to curate play lists as the ideas trickle in. If you are looking to add some to your repertoire, we have been building a series of playlists in our Rockstar Bingo Spotify account. You can connect to them here: https://go.rockstar.bingo/music-bingo-playlists
If I don't plan on using Spotify, how do I play music for my guests?
If you choose not to use Spotify, then you provide the music via your favourite means (Apple music, YouTube, Tidal, MP3 - we even have some folks using LP’s and some bands even does it live - Check out Rockstar Nights, where Rockstar Bingo first started! https://rockstarnights.ca Rockstar Bingo’s primary purpose is to provide the host and player experience of making really simple bingo cards and the ‘call bingo’ experience. With Spotify, we connect to your account
