75 Ball Bingo

75 Ball Bingo

75 ball bingo is one of the most popular of all the variants of bingo available today and is considered probably the most traditional form of the game of bingo itself. Like most of the other variants, 75 ball bingo is available to play online at numerous online casinos these days. It’s a multiplayer game that’s played using a bingo card composed of 25 squares (5x5) and each square contains a random number from 1-75 except the centre square which is always blank and counts as already being marked off.

The rules of 75 ball bingo

There are a wide variety of winning patterns in 75 ball bingo. Traditionally in order to win the biggest prize you must complete a ‘full house’, that is mark off all the numbers on your card. There are also some variations on this particular theme, with lines coming in to play. The way lines work is that once you complete a horizontal line on your bingo card before the other players then you win a smaller prize. Lines are never marked vertically for wins.

In these ‘sub-variants’ of 75 ball bingo you are awarded a prize by making ‘1 line’, ‘2 lines’, ‘3 lines’ and ‘4 line’ combos. Prize value for line combos will vary depending on which establishment you play at. A full house will still count as the biggest win in any case, regardless of where you play. If for any reason, more than one player manages to complete a line combo or full house at the same time, then the prize will be shared out accordingly.

Online gameplay

75 ball bingo uses what’s known as an RNG (random number generator) to draw each number in turn. Once the game begins, no more virtual bingo cards are able to be purchased by players. The draw will begin at this point and one of 75 numbered balls is drawn at random one after the other by the games random number generator. Due to how the game works in an online casino, you don’t even have to concentrate on the game technically because the computer will automatically mark off your card as your numbers are drawn. This means that even if you disconnect during the game or log off, the computer will check your numbers against those that are drawn and claim your prize for you under these circumstances.

Game notes:

  • 75 ball bingo is the simplest version of bingo with a traditional 5x5 card design.
  • It’s the most suitable for new players that want to begin playing bingo.
  • You’re able to play almost on auto pilot since the computer marks your cards for you.
