Bingo was definitely a very well loved game in the middle of the 20th century and into the latter half. It did fall out of favour a little as young generations tended to shun it and do other things instead, often gaming using consoles and computers rather than going out to bingo halls, but when the best online bingo made an appearance, it became popular once more.
Online bingo has a lot of positive things going for it, including the fact that it is just as sociable activity as traditional bingo is (perhaps more so, in fact) and you can play it at your own convenience.
One of the other great things about bingo, once you get more involved in the game and get to know a lot more about it, is the fact that there is just one way to play – there are many. You might think you know bingo back to front, but if you’ve only played one type, you might be in for a surprise.
90 Ball Bingo
90 ball bingo is the game you’re most likely to be familiar with if you are in the UK and play bingo there. It is the most popular form of bingo in the UK, and it is very simple to play. In 90 ball bingo there are, as the name suggests, 90 balls to be pulled out of the bag or other container. Each ticket will have 15 numbers on it, and there are usually three winners – the first wins when they fill one line, the second when they fill two lines, and the third when they fill the whole card.
It is a very simple game to play; all you need to do is listen out for the numbers to be called and if you have the number that is called you can then cross it off your card.
75 Ball Bingo
75 ball bingo is the version of bingo that is most popular and well known in America. Of course, again the name tell you everything you need to know about the differences of the game itself – there are 75 balls rather than the 90 balls that we are more used to.
There is another difference as well. Instead of trying to win in lines, you need to win in patterns. These patterns might even be pictures like an Easter egg or Christmas tree depending on the theme of the bingo game.
80 Ball Bingo
80 ball bingo is the middle ground between 75 and 90 ball bingo. It really appeals to those who like both of these other games, so it can often prove to be very popular. You can win in a variety of different ways including the single line win which can be done in any direction including diagonal. You will also win a smaller prize if you get the corners covered.
