How to Play Online Bingo and Get the Best Bang for Your Buck

Learning how to play online bingo is not much different than learning at a brick-and-mortar gambling hall, but there are a few differences. When it comes to online bingo, there are only a few options open to gamblers. If you are a regular, then you will know that the two most common types of game are 75 and 90 ball. Both of these can be found on almost each and every online casino, and one is very rarely found without the other. Here is a quick run-down of what you can expect, just in case you are new to the form.

90 ball is the most traditional version, and it is mostly played in the UK (though it's quite common in Canada too). In this variant, the cards are typically three horizontal lines and nine columns. Each line holds 5 numbers ranging from 1 to 90, and the game is typically played in three stages with users doing their best to meet a 1, 2, or 3 line win (the latter is classed as a Full House).

75 ball is played exactly the same way, and only the cards differentiate the two versions. In 75 ball, the cards are 5 by 5 grids and each box - including the middle - is filled with a number between 1 and 75. This can either be done as a "coverall," where the participant has to cover all the boxes to win, or as a "pattern," which involves little patterns made up of the boxes, and the aim is to bingo on that pattern. In this version there are a lot of different patterns, but the most standard are horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines, as well as diamonds, crosses, and zeroes. Typically the first person to cover the pattern is the winner, but some sites allow three participants the chance to win by offering different payouts for 1-line, pattern, and coverall winners.

As the game begins you simply have to look and listen for all the balls being called, dabbing off the numbers on your card as you go. For example, if the 8 is called and you have that on your card, daub it off and continue as such until you have completed either a full line, full house, or the other variations. Learning how to play online bingo is very simple, but it's extremely fun and fast-paced!

If you want to learn how to play online bingo for real money on a mobile device, then the rules are exactly the same, but the wagering requirements will differ from site to site. Look for bonuses connected to mobile games, too, because a lot of those make sure that you sign up specifically for mobile versions, while others simply have an online bingo platform as a side-game. A lot of these bonuses are great, and often times you won't have to delve too deeply into your pockets to win cash, but there are sometimes some strict guidelines to withdrawing money earned from bonuses, so be sure to check out the guidelines for the site you're trying.
