90 Ball Bingo
Written 17th September 2020
When it comes to online bingo there is an enormity of game variants on offer, from seasonal rooms to rapid-fire ones, so where do you get started if you’re brand new to playing bingo? For newbies, we like to recommend 90 Ball Bingo. This is easily one of the biggest fan favourites in the UK - largely because it’s also one of the original bingo styles to come about with a history spanning many years!
Because 90 Ball Bingo is so popular in the UK, there are plenty of venues available online for you to play it, but it’s important to know exactly what the game entails before you pick up your virtual dauber and get stuck into your new community of likeminded 90 Ball Bingo players. So, how do you play 90 Ball Bingo? How does it work? How do you win? Where did it all start? We’ve covered all these questions and more in our guide to 90 Ball Bingo.
Better yet, we’ve also got some specific insider information about our own brilliant offering of the game so you can head straight over to the 90 Ball Bingo room once you’ve topped up your knowledge.
Before you learn how to play this variant of bingo it can be useful to find out more about where it came from - even if only to use as tidbits to talk about in the chat! While the game of bingo itself dates back to the 16th century, it inevitably went through many years of developments until it reached the game that we know and love today.
90 Ball Bingo, specifically, was popularised with the introduction of UK bingo halls towards the end of the 20th century. Generally speaking, land-based bingo halls will almost exclusively offer 90 Ball Bingo as this is the primary UK variant whereas the US took to 75 Ball Bingo.
As the name suggests, this game involves the numbers 1 - 90 and the aim of the game, much like all other variants, is to mark off as many numbers from your ticket as you can in order to win a prize.
Now, if you’re wondering how exactly prizes are determined and awarded in 90 Ball Bingo then the answer can be different depending on where you’re playing. Some providers have different rules, so we’ll offer you an insight into how to play here at Pink Casino as we follow a fairly traditional win format.
Once you’ve purchased a card, you’ll see a random selection of numbers - if any of these numbers are called during gameplay, they will be marked off your card. Complete a line, two lines, or a full house (three lines) in order to pocket a prize.
As the aim of the game is to achieve a completed ticket (a Full House), you would be correct in thinking that this is quite simply the way in which winners are selected. There are, however, also prizes available for those that manage to complete a single line or two lines - this means there are three winning opportunities with each round of 90 Ball!
Because we’re an online casino, everything is done virtually here so manually stamping your cards isn’t necessary; this is something that’s automatically done on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry about missing a number if you have to step away during a game.
