Before you host your Musingo Bingo party, make sure you have the following:
- Spotify Premium account ✔
- Laptop or desktop ✔
- Chrome, Internet Explorer or Firefox ✔
- Zoom account ✔
Follow these simple steps to host your Musingo Bingo party.
STEP 1 – CREATE YOUR PLAYLIST
Create your Musingo Bingo playlist on Spotify Premium. Your playlist should be public, have a minimum of 15 songs and a recommended maximum of 24. If you are hosting on the free to silver tiers, aim for a minimum of 15 tracks per round. Hosting on the gold or enterprise should have a minimum of 20.
Tap on the ‘Add Playlist’ button to connect your Spotify account to your Musingo Bingo game and select your chosen playlists. Create a bingo round game by giving it a name and pairing it with its playlist.
STEP 2 – PERSONALISE YOUR GAME
All Musingo Bingo games come with our basic theme, but if it’s a special occasion, a corporate social or part of your own event, we know you might want to give it your own stamp. Head to the THEME page and create your own invitation, bingo game message, theme picture and even the design of the bingo card tiles.
Copy the URL code and send your Musingo Bingo game link to your friends. Once they open the link they will see your invite message and receive their first bingo card.
STEP 3 – CREATE A GAME
Create a bingo round game by selecting the ‘Create a Game’ button. Give your bingo round a name and pair it with its playlist by tapping ‘Select Game’. You will have the option to send the URL link to your players at this stage, but remember you can also do this from your Theme page too. You are now ready to play Musingo Bingo.
STEP 4 – CONNECT TO SPOTIFY
Make sure you are sharing your computer sound – click on this is a useful guide here on how to do so. Then connect your Musingo Bingo game to Spotify by tapping on your playlist.
You will then be directed to Spotify, tap on the ‘Devices Available’ button on Spotify and connect it to Musingo Bingo and you’re ready to play.
Please note Spotify will automatically disconnect after an hour of play, so simply reconnect after a couple of rounds.
STEP 5 – START A NEW GAME
Once a player has won a Musingo Bingo game, you can start a new round by tapping the ‘Change Game’ round.
