You may think of the game bingo and think that you know the game – it’s a classic, after all, and it may seem strange to hear that there are some things about the traditional game that you’ve never heard about. The world is forever changing, and that holds equally true for your favourite games, especially if they are played online. There is, after all, a whole community of bingo players out there, and they each have their preferences and favourite ways to play their beloved game. Think you know everything about bingo? Think again. Here’s an in-depth look at the different types of online bingo games you can play.

The 75 ball classic

image00It’s the classic way of playing the bingo game: you have 75 balls, numbered from 1 to 75 – 24 of which are arranged in semi-random order on the cards in a 5 by 5 grid. Except for the middle square on your card, each compartment contains a possibility (the middle square is free for everyone). Based on the lines, your prize is decided – your prize is determined according to the line.

75 ball variations

The traditional 75-ball bingo game allows you to win when you get five squares filled in one line; whether vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. However, there are also other variations – variations in which the winner is not necessarily the one who can complete a 5-number line, but who can complete a certain combination on the playing card.

90 ball Bingo

This variant is similar to the 75-ball version, although you play (as the name suggests) with 90 balls, and hence 90 possible numbers. It’s actually the most popular version of online bingo now, because the odds are changed; you have a slightly less chance of winning the combination, but it allows for more players and greater prize

Different stakes, different fun

Here’s the great thing about online bingo: there are so many players available, and so many different kinds of versions, that there are different stakes and different kinds of prizes to win. There’s something online for everybody.

If you’ve ever played the traditional Bingo game – live, physically, with real cards (as opposed to the online variety) – then you know how much fun it can be. Take that pleasure and multiply it a thousand-fold, and you’ll start to understand why online bingo is so great. It takes the game to a whole other level, not only because there are many varieties available, but also because you get to meet people from all over the world, with different backgrounds, different cultures, and different ways of playing. And don’t forget: you can play whenever you want, wherever you want, because the world is round and it’s always bingo time somewhere!
