Random Number Generators and Online Bingo Cards

At most land based bingo halls players can keep the same bingo cards for every game or can exchange them as often as they like. At online bingo sites things are different due to technology. At online bingo sites bingo cards are created by a random number generator. (RNG) This is the reason that players at online bingo sites must purchase new cards for every bingo game. Random number generators are also used in place of old fashioned bingo ball machines to select the random numbers. The program for the random number generator is based on mathematical algorithms. Separate random number generators are used to create bingo cards and select the numbers to be called.

How a RNG Works

For each new online bingo game cards are created at random. Players cannot use the same cards over and over because it would throw the random number generator off balance and could also give some players an unfair advantage over others. All players receive new cards at the beginning of each game to keep things as fair and random as possible. Bingo is a random game of chance which gives players an equal chance of winning any bingo game. For most players the randomness is what makes online bingo so entertaining and exciting.

Most players know that the more cards they play during a game the greater their chances of winning. During big money bingo games most players will play the maximum number of cards allowed. Because of the auto daub feature available at most online bingo sites players can keep track of dozens of cards simultaneously. Since most players are playing the max number of cards the playing field is usually level in most online bingo games. Players should keep in mind that in some bingo games players are limited to the same number of cards.

Working with 75-ball and 90-ball bingo

There are two types of online bingo cards available at most bingo sites; traditional 75 ball cards and 90 ball bingo cards. 75 ball bingo is the dominant game in North America and 90 ball bingo is the most popular game in Great Britain and some of its former colonies. 75 ball bingo is played on a card with a 5×5 grid and 90 ball bingo cards have a 9×3 grid. Random number generators are used to create both types of bingo cards. Random number generators have also affected live bingo. Some bingo halls have dumped the old fashioned ball machines in favor of random number generators.
