Playing bingo online is easy – all you have to do is find the right type of online bingo game you prefer and find a good site where you can play it, right? But it’s actually more than this. If you really want to win at online bingo, it is always a good idea to learn as much as you can about what you are playing. A little bit of knowledge goes a long way, after all.
90 ball bingo: what you need to know
90 ball bingo is arguably the most popular type of bingo game you can play, even more popular than 75 ball bingo. But what do you need to know about it? The tickets for each game are comprised of a three by nine number chart. There are nine boxes in a line, which has five numbers (and four spots which are empty). The lines are typically arranged like this: with 01 to 09 in the first column, 10 to 19 in the second column, 20 to 29 in the third column, and so on until the ninth column.
Playing 90 ball bingo
When playing 90 ball bingo, the numbers one to 90 are included. In the online version of 90 ball bingo, computer software is used to choose the balls and then call out each number. In the game, the numbers will be called for only a single time.
If you are playing 90 ball bingo in a hall or live, you would have to mark out the numbers on the card yourself. But in an online game, you have two options: you can either choose to have the software dab the numbers automatically, and you can also do it on your own. Some bingo players prefer to mark their own tickets even whilst playing online since it becomes more enjoyable, whilst others prefer having the software do it for them. It’s really up to you.
The rounds in 90 ball bingo
What makes 90 ball bingo so special (and so popular) is the fact that you have three chances of winning. 90 ball bingo is made up of three parts – the first part, which offers a win for a single line; the second part, which offers a win for two lines; and the third part, which offers a win for a full house. In the single line part, the numbers for any one row would need to be covered. In the double line or two line part, numbers have to be covered on two of the rows, whilst in the full house part, all the numbers for all the rows would have to be covered or marked.
Now that you know the basics of 90 ball bingo, it’s time to play. Good luck!
