Bingo[1] is a recurring gimmick that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. With this gimmick, the player can collect numbers to earn rewards.


Bingo is a game that typically uses nine numbers (from 1 to 9). If the player manages to collect three of these numbers found within a playable level so they align in a row either horizontally, vertically or diagonally on the Bingo grids that are depicted prominently within the level, they will get a “bingo”, and will usually be rewarded with Rings. After this, the grids that showcase the bingo will restart.

Game appearances

Sonic Pinball Party

Bingo first appeared as a part of the Bingo minigame in Sonic Pinball Party. Here, the player has to sling a pinball into the two targets in the top corners on the chosen pinball board to light up random squares on the bingo grid.

Sonic Heroes

In Sonic Heroes, Bingo is playable in BINGO Highway. Here, the numbers are spread across the pinball table-like areas the characters travel through, appearing as multicolored, massive numbers within rings. Depending on how the numbers on the display table align, the player's reward will vary.

Sonic Rivals 2

In Sonic Rivals 2, Bingo appear in Neon Palace Zone. This time around, the Bingo numbers are activated by touching blocks that have the corresponding number on them. Bingo is also used when fighting the Egg Dealer. Getting a Bingo will cause the Egg Dealer to descend after being hit by a beam of lightning, allowing the player to attack it.

Sonic Lost World

In the Nintendo 3DS version of Sonic Lost World, Sky Road Zone 1 features Bingo grids as the main gimmick. Bingo grids with 25 flipping cards appear above corridor sections which the player can only reach using Springs, Flippers or other local gimmicks. These sections have large tiles blocking the pathways out of there which will only disappear after the player has flipped a certain amount cards on their respective Bingo grids using the aforementioned gimmicks.

The player receives a Bingo every time after flipping all the cards in a row. When this happens, the player also gets ten extra Rings. The player can also use Cyan Laser to reach these cards faster.
