40 for 7 letters and 50 for 8 In real scrabble 7 is the bingo because only 7 letters in the scrabble rack. If you attach to another letter and make it 8 letters in scrabble there are no bonus points as there are here. Both are bingos
@Deborah-McElmon-Clahane I can't say I've found that happening but it really doesn't seem to be purely random. It seems like whenever I play someone out of my league, the letters I get are crappy - while they're playing bingos...
I sometimes block people when the game does not feel competitive. Like I am "below their range" by 150 points.
I have several friends I already play who are way more experienced than I. So I am fairly consistently losing to them (and learning). It is just so nice to have a few balanced games as well.
