How To Play 75 Ball Bingo
75 Ball bingo is the variation that is most enjoyed by the US and Canada, but it is growing in popularity in the UK. This seems to be because it is so readily available online and most UK sites offer members a choice of different versions.
The card is constructed from 5 horizontal and five vertical columns which form a grid of 25 squares. The square in the center of the grid is a free space and it never contains a number. However if this square forms part of a pattern, you are automatically allowed to mark it off as a free space.
How To Play Bingo
How to play bingo is a simple matter and you construct patterns on a grid such as this and many of the patterns used are in line with a particular theme, of either the game in play or of a particular promotion. The patterns on the cards are one of the reason why players like this version, they make it more interesting. There are hundreds of different patterns which may be used on a 75 ball bingo card. The coverall is very popular and in this game all the squares except the free space have numbers, all have to be market off and this provides the largest prize money.
The top of the card has the word B – I – N – G – O printed above each vertical column and a certain series of numbers is allocated to each column, there are 15 for each. The “B” column is 1 – 15, I is 16 – 30, N is 31 – 45 and so on.
The aim is to mark off all the numbers in the pattern as they are called. The range of numbers used as the name of the game suggests is 1 – 75. These numbers are called as they come up from the random number generator, and the first to fill their card is the winner. Traditionally at this point they would shout B-I-N-G-O.
How to play bingo online is exactly the same in land based clubs, the only difference being that with online the numbers are automatically daubed. The word daub means marked off.
