Bingo Game Types
When you are playing bingo online you will find each bingo site offers a range of different bingo rooms, each room will offer one of the three different bingo games listed below, and also each room will offer you a different cost per card, some bingo games may be completely free to play however the vast majority of them will require you to buy your tickets, and each room will have a fixed fee per card purchased which can often be as low as just 0.01 per card.
90 Ball Bingo Games – This bingo variant is made up of three parts, you pay one fixed fee for each ticket you wish to play, and have three ways to win in each game. The 90 Ball Bingo games have tickets which have 15 numbers on them, this will be any mix of numbers from one up to ninety, and they will be displayed on the ticket in three rows of five numbers.
The first part of these 90 Ball Bingo will see all players hoping to be the first one to cross off all five numbers on any one individual row, and if they are then they will win the one line prize. After this you move onto the second part of the game which is played for a slightly bigger prize than the one line prize and this is the two line game, where the first player to cross off all numbers on any two lines on any one ticket wins.
Finally you get to play for the full house which has the biggest prize on offer, the first player to mark off all 15 numbers on any one ticket will win the prize allocated to this. Should in any part of the game more than one player call bingo then that prize is shared between them.
