How to Play Bingo UK
Updated on 3rd June 2020
Bingo is an incredibly popular casino game that attracts a wide range of people. From those who also regularly enjoy bingo at a physical bingo hall, to newbie bingo players, online bingo brings everybody together in an enjoyable, convenient and accessible way.
If you’re new to playing then you might feel a little apprehensive at first about how to play. Fortunately, bingo is a game that’s easy to get started with. But, to help kickstart your bingo lingo knowledge and get involved in the chat with our lovely community and moderators, we’ve put together some handy tips and tricks for getting the most out of your bingo experience - and so you can see how easy it is to learn how to play!
How Do You Play Bingo?
The main thing you’ll need to do when playing bingo is to watch the numbers being called and mark them if you see them on your card. That is the basic rule of how to play bingo whether you’re playing at an online casino or in a land-based UK venue. The rest is really easy to pick up as you go. However, to get the most out of your first few bingo games, it is a good idea to find out more about bingo rules and instructions.
Online bingo is generally split into a few categories that differ based on the cards and number forms they use. The most popular in the UK is usually 90-ball bingo, but you may sometimes see 75-ball bingo too. This simply refers to the number of bingo balls used in play.
There are also special bingo rooms at Pink Casino such as Speed Bingo, which, as the name suggests, is a fast-paced version of the UK game that’s perfect for anyone who likes their bingo games to be speedy and energetic.
Automated Card Marking
Unlike in land-based bingo halls across the UK, automatic marking options mean that you don’t have to worry about frantically finding the numbers on your card during a game. Using Autoplay during an online bingo game means the numbers on your card will be marked automatically when called so you don’t need to dab a card or keep track of each number - unless you want to, of course.
There are also some additional automated features that can help manage games:
Best card sorting: This is a setting that places your cards that have the best chance of winning at the top of your screen, enabling you to keep tabs on them easily.
Best card highlighting: This will highlight cards that are nearing a win.
These features let you quickly see which cards are most likely to win so that you know which numbers to listen and look out for. This is a great way to learn how to play without needing to speed-read through all of your numbers!
