10X Bingo Multiplier Game Style Change


The Nebraska Lottery has received feedback regarding a recent change to the new 10X Bingo Multiplier scratch card game (game #1244).

$3 10X Bingo Multiplier is one of our most popular scratch card games, and we understand the concerns our players have about changes to the game. In this article, we’ll explore what’s changed, what we’re doing to address the issue, and our plan for developing future bingo games based on feedback from our players.


Several players have reported purchasing $3 10X multiplier bingo tickets where some numbers in the CALLER CARD and BONUS NUMBERS sections do not appear on any of the BINGO CARDS on the ticket.

All 10X Bingo Multiplier tickets are designed with a parameter that requires at least 25 of the 32 CALLER CARD numbers and BONUS NUMBERS to appear in at least one place on any BINGO CARD. This means that up to seven of these numbers may not appear at all on the BINGO CARDS of a ticket. In previous 10X Bingo Multiplier games, the parameter was met by having each CALLING CARD number and BONUS NUMBER appear at least once on the BINGO CARDS.

The most recent edition of 10X Bingo Multiplier (game #1244) was created by our Scratch ticket provider, International Game Technology (IGT), using a new programming system. In this game, the parameters were the same, allowing up to seven CALLING CARD numbers or BONUS NUMBERS that do not appear on the BINGO CARDS on a ticket. However, in this case, the parameter was met with between 25 and 32 of those numbers appearing, instead of the 32 numbers that most players are used to.

The change was the result of switching to the new scheduling system. It is not a mistake or a typo. There was never a game parameter that required all CALLER CARD numbers and BONUS NUMBERS on a ticket to appear at least once on the BINGO CARDS, but $3 bingo scratch games had traditionally been programmed that way with the legacy system.

Despite the change, the chances of winning a prize by playing 10X Bingo Multiplier are the same as before. The prizes and number of winning tickets in the latest 10X Bingo Multiplier game are identical to the previous version of the game, so the odds of winning have not changed. For reference, you can view the prize structure for the 10X Bingo Multiplier (Game #1244) and the previous 10X Bingo Multiplier (Game #1164) on our website using the links below.

Whats Next

We understand how important a scratch card game like $3 10X Bingo Multiplier is to many of our players. The change in the latest 10X Bingo Multiplier game was unintentional and we appreciate the feedback we have received.

While the change doesn’t affect your chances of winning, we know that people buy bingo cards not only to win prizes, but also for the overall experience of playing. Unfortunately, the latest 10X Bingo Multiplier game falls short of those expectations. As a result, we will close 10X Bingo Multiplier (game #1244) and print a new game using the old game style. We anticipate that the new 10X Bingo Multiplier game will hit stores in mid-July.

Starting June 7, 2023, Nebraska Lottery retailers will begin removing 10X Bingo Multiplier packs (set #1244) from their display units. Winning tickets can be redeemed until December 4, 2023.
