The Types of Bingo Games

Bingo is a simple yet exciting game. When playing it online, it is ever more fun as there are different types of bingo games which are available. Many sites have more than two types of bingo games, and thus you could try all these throughout the year for fresh adventures each time. Bingo sites have different types of games and their card prices are different. The main type of bingo games you can find online are:

75-Ball Bingo

75-Ball Bingo generated from United States, however, it can also be played at Bingo Extra which is one of the best online bingo site. At Bingo Extra, you can find three amazing 75-ball bingo rooms such as Candy Store, Weekly Shop and Extra Surprise. In any of these rooms, you will find great Chat Moderators which will keep the friendly atmosphere and will be by your side all the time.

In any 75-ball bingo rooms, you will find bingo cards which consist of 5 columns and 5 rows, totalling 25 squares. The square found in the middle is blank, and the remaining 24 squares contain a number. The letters B, I, N, G, O can be seen on top of the columns, and every column contains numbers from a distinct range. The first letter, which is B, starts as from the lowest numbers and it keeps going on like that. Initially, the rule of 75- ball bingo was that the first player to daub all numbers from a complete line (vertically, horizontally or diagonally), is the winner. But, at Bingo Extra, there are different patterns, either letters or shapes, which must be marked to win.

90-Ball Bingo

In several regions, 90-Ball bingo is most appreciated by players. For this type of bingo game, the cards contain 15 numbers. All cards consist of five numbers in every 3 rows, anywhere within the nine columns. The numbers on the cards vary from 1 to 90 only, and each column can contain numbers from a specific range.

For this type of bingo game, there are three winners:

  • First winner- The player who daubs a full horizontal line.
  • Second winner- The player who completes two horizontal lines.
  • Third player- The player who marks all the numbers first.

On online bingo sites, every line winner receives a specific amount of money, and the full house winner grabs the biggest share.

5-Line Bingo

5-Line Bingo is also known as Swedish Bingo, and this type of bingo game is a fast-paced one. Just like 75-Ball bingo, 5-line bingo consists of a 5×5 grid, however there is no middle blank space on this one.

During this type of game, there can be 5 winners:

  • First winner- The player who marks one full line
  • Second winner- The player who marks two full lines
  • Third winner- The player who marks three full lines
  • Fourth winner- The player who marks four lines
  • Fifth winner- The player who marks five lines

Many sites allow diagonal; vertical and horizontal lines as wins as well.
