90 Ball Bingo For American Players

Today most online bingo sites offer two bingo game variants; traditional 75 ball games and 90 ball bingo. In addition some sites also offer 80 and 30 ball bingo known as ‘speed’ bingo. In the UK 90 ball bingo is the most popular game at live bingo halls and online bingo sites. Many American players are not familiar with 90 ball bingo and are hesitant to play it. 90 ball bingo is as easy to learn as the traditional 75 ball version of the game. There are some differences which are explained below.

90 ball bingo cards or ‘tickets’ as they are known in the UK, are significantly different than 75 ball cards. 75 ball cards have a 5 X 5 grid with a free square in the middle and the letters B-I-N-G-O are printed at the top of the card and mark the vertical columns on a 75 ball card. 90 ball bingo cards contain three rows and nine columns. In each row there are five squares numbered from 1 through 90. There are some blank spaces on 90 ball cards but these are not free spaces.

Purchasing 90 ball cards is essentially the same a purchasing 75 ball cards. At online bingo sites players can select their cards using their mouse. Usually the card will be highlighted and the player clicks the ‘purchase card’ tab. Usually after the purchase the card changes color and the card is ready to be played.

75 and 90 ball call boards are very similar with minor variations. 90 ball bingo call boards have sic rows of fifteen numbers adding up to 90.

Unlike 75 ball games there are three ways to win playing 90 ball bingo. Every game awards several prizes per pattern. Players can win by marking one horizontal line, marking two lines and covering all the squares known as a ‘full house’ or ‘coverall.’

American players interested in learning this highly entertaining version of bingo should take advantage of the free bingo option offered by most online bingo sites. Using the free games can enable players to thoroughly learn the game before risking any real cash. Like any other gambling game there is an element of risk but fortunately online bingo is still one of the most affordable games on the internet and is growing in popularity. 90 ball bingo has already attracted a small following in the United States and the number of 90 ball bingo players is increasing.
