BINGO: 90 BALLS
The 90 ball bingo is the oldest variation of this game and was born in England centuries ago.
This Bingo style is still nowadays the most popular in Europe, especially in the British Isles.
While the essence of all Bingo games is always the same regardless of the number of balls with which it is played, the main differences can be seen in the type of cards each variation has.
In this case, 90 Ball Bingo cards have 3 rows and 9 columns. In each row there are 5 boxes filled with a number and 4 of them which are left empty.
This adds up a total of 15 numbers in each card. In the first column you will be able to see numbers from 1 to 10, in the second from 11 to 20, and so on until the ninth column, where you can find numbers between 81 and 90.
Ninety Ball Bingo has three levels of prizes. In the first place there is the Single Line, meaning that a player has completed a whole row on his ticket before the other players.
Secondly there is the Double Line prize, which means the player has completed two rows on a same card. You don’t need to win the Single Line prize in order to get the Double Line.
Many times one player completes one line first, but then another one completes two lines before the first one does.
Finally, there is Bingo, the last and most important prize which makes you win the jackpot. A player wins it by completing the entire card before any other player does.
Just like in the previous prizes, any player can win the jackpot regardless of having won or not the Single or Double Line prizes.
