There are many different types of bingo games played online, 90 ball has to be the most popular variation and for good reason so.
In 90 ball bingo, players purchase their cards and as numbers are called out, they cross them off. If you are playing in a local bingo hall, for instance one listed at My Town Bingo, you will have to dab the numbers out with your dabber yourself. This is where the skill in bingo comes in, players who are quick witted and fast will be have an edge over players who are not so fast. When played online though, the numbers will be crossed out automatically.
How To Play
In 90 ball bingo, there are a total of 90 different numbers that can appear on your card. Prizes are dished out for players who complete 1 line, 2 lines and a full house. Typically prizes get bigger and bigger, so the largest prize is given to players who make a full house.
If two players declare “bingo” at the same time, the winning prize will be shared between both players.
Other Game Variations
Other bingo game variations include 75 ball and 80 ball bingo. 90 ball and 75 ball are typically variations played in the UK, whereas 80 ball bingo is popularized throughout the USA and is typically seen in Las Vegas halls.
Nowadays online they are coming up with even more exciting variations, including the likes of 30 ball and 50 ball speed games. These games are frenetic, with high paced action lasting only a couple of minutes. Perfect for someone looking for a quick gambling fix or rush!
