90 Ball Bingo (UK) Rules
90 Ball Bingo is a game using a printed ticket of 15 numbers on three lines; most commonly played in the UK, Australia and New Zealand!
Bingo is a gambling game of unknown origin. Players mark off numbers on a ticket as they are randomly called out, in order to achieve a winning combination. The UK version of bingo consists of 90 balls and is not to be confused with the similar American 75 ball version of Bingo, as the tickets and the calling are slightly different!
Unlike balls used in regular bingo halls where the game is presided over by a caller, online bingo sites use a random number generator.
Playing bingo online, players can make use of optional features which make playing the game easier, such as auto-daub. Auto-daub automatically marks off the numbers on cards as they are called, so players don’t have to. Most software providers support other gaming features as “Best Card Sorting” and “Best Card Highlighting” where players cards are sorted and highlighted by closest to bingo.
To win the largest prizes, users must fund an account, but free bingo games are also available offering players a way to win smaller amounts of money with no risk of gambling. Some online bingo sites offer no deposit bingo with sandbox play. This will allow the player to get the hang of the system without a cash investment, but no monetary value can be gained.
90 Ball Bingo (UK)
A typical bingo ticket is shown below. It contains twenty-seven spaces, arranged in nine columns by three rows. Each row contains five numbers and four blank spaces. Each column contains either one, two, or very rarely three, numbers:
• The first column contains numbers from 1 to 9,
• The second column numbers from 10 to 19,
• The third 20 to 29 and so on up until the last column, which contains numbers from 80 to 90 (the 90 being placed in this column as well).
The different winning combinations are:
• Line — Covering a horizontal line of five numbers on the ticket.
• Two Lines — Covering any two lines on the same ticket.
• Full House — Covering all fifteen numbers on the ticket.
The prize split differs for each stage of the game. The Full House is always the largest prize in any one game!
