Online Bingo Cards Explained

Online bingo is growing in popularity and new bingo sites are popping up all the time. These sites offer a wide selection of themed bingo games to suit all tastes and budgets, based on three basic game formats: 75-ball bingo, 80-ball bingo and 90-ball bingo. The pattern of numbers you need to mark off on your card to win varies from game to game.

75-Ball Bingo

As its name suggests, 75-ball bingo is a game in which the maximum amount of numbered balls drawn from the virtual bingo ball machine is 75. Your online bingo card comes in a 5x5 format (that’s 5 rows and 5 columns). Your aim is to mark off 5 numbers in a horizontal row to win a prize for 75-ball bingo with a twist look for ‘pattern’ games. These are more exciting as you can win not only with horizontal lines but also with a specific pattern of numbers on the card – you might even get a full house (all the numbers on your card marked off) for a special prize.

80-Ball and 90-Ball Bingo

These games function according to the same principle as 75-ball bingo but the number of balls drawn from the machine and the card formats are different.

In 80-ball bingo the cards are 4x4 and contain 16 numbers. The aim is to mark off a whole line but the line can be horizontal or diagonal depending on the game. Sometimes you’ll get a prize for numbers in all four corners of the card.

In 90-ball bingo, the cards are 9x3 and contain 15 numbers. The game is often played in three stages; the aim is to mark off numbers in one line, then two lines, and maybe even three lines on the card –a full house. The biggest prizes always go to full house winners.
