30-Ball Bingo

The smallest form of the game, and therefore the quickest. With only 30 balls in the game, it’s a great way to get used to the format of bingo in a whirlwind manner. Click here to take a look at the schedule.

75-Ball Bingo

The most popular form of bingo in North America. Like 90-ball bingo, it’s named because of the 75 balls used in the game. To play, you need to buy 1 to 150 cards and the first player to bingo on the pre-determined pattern of the game is the winner. The patterns can vary for 75-ball bingo including a heart, flower, star and much more. Check out the Bingo 75-Ball schedule here!

80-Ball Bingo

Like the most popular forms in the UK and North America, but with 80 balls instead. Each ticket is made up of a four-by-four grid containing random numbers from 1 to 80. Play 80-Ball Bingo here.

90-Ball Bingo

The UK's favourite bingo: a national institution since the 1960s and is played in halls across the country. Named after the 90 balls used in the game, to play you’ll need to purchase at least one ticket (or more!). Each card has three horizontal lines of five numbers, which means that there are 15 numbers in total to match-up. To win a prize you must complete three successful patterns, the first being a single line across, the second two lines across, and the third is filling all the numbers on the strip, known as a full house. The prize increases with each successful pattern and the jackpot is awarded to the first player to complete a full house. You’ll find all the action for Bingo 90 here!
