Bonus "Lucky Ball" Prize
CatchUp CoverAll includes an optional bonus game called "Lucky Ball" that can be played alongside the main game. In the moments before each game begins, you are presented with a grid of nine bingo balls (B-1, B-2, B-3, B-4, B-5, B-6, B-7, B-8, B-9). To play, select one of the numbers by clicking on it and then click the submit button. You can see your Lucky Ball on the screen during the game, but cannot change your Lucky Ball mid-game, only before each game starts. NOTE: If you enter during an intermission, or after the current game has begun, you may not be eligible to play Lucky Ball. When someone wins the jackpot prize, up to four random players in that game, with the same current Lucky Ball choice as the winner, each wins 2,000GVs as a bonus prize. If the winner has not selected a Lucky Ball, no one receives the bonus prize. If no one's Lucky Ball matches the Lucky Ball selected by the winner, no one receives the bonus prize.
CatchUp CoverAll features two optional chat games that can be played alongside the main game. "Flip/Flop" is one of these chat games.

The Gold balls represent chances to win additional GV Rewards. If you daub numbers on your cards that match the gold bingo balls, you'll win bonus GV Rewards. NOTE: The numbers can appear in the stated pattern or outside the stated pattern.
No. If I daub outside the pattern (for example, to claim a Gold ball), you will not jeopardize your win.
Our system only checks to verify that you daub the balls that match the stated pattern, regardless of whether they're gold or not.
To win, what matters is that you daub the balls that match the stated pattern and click "Bingo" before the game ends.
Gamesville requires a constant connection between your computer and our servers. This is because the game on your computer is constantly "talking" with our servers, and vice versa, communicating information about GV Rewards, chat messages, balls called, and so on.
If anything interferes with that connection--for example, if your Internet Service Provider goes down for maintenance or experiences a network "hiccup"--you will not receive the latest ball called on your computer, even while others do on theirs. When the network interference on your end clears up, all the balls that have stacked up in those few seconds will come racing down toward you, making it seem like our bingo caller, Dickie, is suddenly on speed.
Your odds of winning a game are not diminished if you enter the game after it has already started.
When you enter a game in progress, you are automatically sent ALL the bingo balls you have missed since you last received one. So while you will need to "catch up" for a moment or two if you enter mid-game, you should quickly get right into the thick of things on an equal basis with everyone else playing that game.
(Of course, there are exceptions: For example, if you enter a game when virtually all balls have already been called -- meaning there are a scant few moments left in the game -- then the few moments it may take you to get caught up may keep you on the sidelines while players who have been in the game all along pounce on the one or two balls they need to win!)
