75 Ball Or 90 Ball Bingo?

When it comes to playing bingo, Cheers players have the choice to play either 75 ball or 90 ball bingo games. Both of these games are hugely popular and each has their own merits. In case you’re a new player or you simply wish to try out a different variety, we’ve decided to review each game. This way, you’ll get a taste of what to expect from both. We’re about to give you a bingo boot camp roomies, so get ready. Here is everything you need to know about 75 ball and 90 ball bingo games.

75 Ball Bingo

This variety of bingo is sometimes known as American Bingo, unsurprisingly due to the  fact that it is popular in the States. In these games, a full house takes the prize. There will only be one winner. The game is played on a 5×5 squared card. The card will have the letters B-I-N-G-O running either horizontally across the top or vertically down one side.

As many players tend to play this type of bingo across multiple cards, the game evolved to  include a handy system for keeping track. The bingo calls make it easy for players to locate and strike off numbers quickly. Each number will be called with the line letter to ensure it’s easy to find. For example B-7. Players then look at the line which is headed by a ‘B’ then search for the number 7.

The 75 ball game tends to take longer than its 90 ball counterpart. The game will run until someone covers all squares and calls a full house.

90 Ball Bingo

90 ball bingo is commonly referred to as British Bingo. This is the variety associated with zany bingo calls. There are 3 possible winning patterns in this variety. Players can win 1 line, 2 lines or a full house. Each row will contain 3 horizontal rows and 9 columns. The first column runs from 1-9, the second from 10-19 etc.

A line win comes when a player marks off all the numbers on any 1 line of the ticket. This may be done horizontally or vertically. A full house is called when a player marks off all 15 numbers on their ticket. As there are more ways to win, these games are often faster paced than the 75 ball variety.

Tongue in cheek bingo calls has long been an integral part of the 90 bingo game. This is when, in addition to stating the number, the caller announces its call name. These call names are usually in the form of rhyming slang or a reference to the number’s form. Some  popular calls include ‘Legs Eleven’ for the number 11 or ‘Two Little Ducks’ for number 22.

We hope that this has given you a bit more knowledge and given you more confidence to choose a bingo game that suits you. Enter the lobby fully equipped with all the info you need.
