How To Play 75 Ball Bingo
As well as 90 ball bingo many UK bingo sites offer 75 ball bingo games. This is the version of bingo that is more associated with The USA and it is often called pattern bingo. 75 ball bingo cards consists of 24 numbers contained in a 5 x 5 grid. The 25th space, given as the middle square, is designated a free space.
Each column represents a letter - name B, I, N, G and O - bingo! As in 90 ball bingo the aim is to get all your numbers covered first. However patterns play an important role in 75 ball bingo. You may play to coverall (cover all 24 numbers) or for various patterns, where the aim is to cover the numbers within the pattern.
Patterns can be anything from just the four corners, to shapes of letters, numbers right through to even the whole card. Seasonal variations for things such as Halloween (pumpkin, witch's hat) and Christmas (baubles, snowball) are also quite popular.
Apparently there's strategy associated with bingo card selection and types of patterns that are better to play in 75 ball games!
One easy to remember pattern is the coverall! This is when you need to cross off all the numbers on your card in order to win the full house.
In 2011 some bingo sites, including Wink Bingo, introduced 5 Line Bingo or Swedish Bingo. This 75 ball game offers players the chance to win up to five times during a game by offering prizes for one line, two lines, three lines, four lines and a full house.
In our experience the 75 ball bingo rooms tend not to attract as many players as the 90 ball rooms. However, what you tend to find is that many prize bingo games will use pattern bingo as the basis for their promotions.
