90 ball bingo arguably the most famous type of bingo game, primarily played in Europe and South America. Unlike its 75 ball North American cousin, 90 ball bingo offers players more chances to win, with most games offering three prizes – the first person to win one line, the first person to win two lines, and the first person to get a full house. Traditionally the game is played in real life bingo halls, but the invention of the internet means that you can now play from your sofa via online bingo sites! These sites are available on desktop, mobile and tablet, so you’ve got loads of options to play.
How to play
The game is very simple to play. When you enter a 90 ball game you will be offered a bingo ticket. In 90 ball bingo, the ticket will be made up of three rows of 9 boxes. In each row, 5 of the boxes will have a number between 1 and 90, and 4 of them will be empty. Typically in bingo halls, each player plays with a strip of 6 tickets each, and every number between 1 and 90 will be spread across the strip – so you will be able to cover up one of your numbers on every call. However most bingo sites will allow players to purchase up to 96 tickets per game. Whilst in real life you would need to hurry to find the number on your bingo card, with online bingo the number is automatically blanked out on your card! The aim of the game is to be the first player to fill up either one line, two lines or an entire bingo ticket.
Winning Jackpot Prizes
The jackpot prize is then usually split between the three winners, and in most occasions the Full House winner will get the biggest share, followed by the Two Line winner, and the One Line winner usually gets the smallest fraction of the prize. There are of course some exceptions; some games award the same amount to each player; others may choose to swap the 1L and FH prizes, in order to mix the game up a little bit. Occasionally, the prize may be split 4 ways, with the three winners each getting a prize and the remaining money being split amongst the rest of the players. What’s more, some games will also offer prizes to players who were just one or two numbers away from winning. It’s helpful to watch out for these games as you have a much bigger chance of breaking even, or perhaps even making a profit on them if you play.
