Types of Bingo games
When playing bingo online there are different kinds of games you can play. The 2 most popular are 75 ball bingo and 90 ball bingo- they are given the name because this is the maximum quantity of balls that can be called in a single bingo game. 75 ball bingo has a 5x5 bingo card and it’s a ‘coverall’ – because you win when all the bingo numbers are found on the card. 90 ball on the other hand has 3 lines and you usually buy tickets in a strip of 6 so that all the 90 numbers are there. The aim of the game is to win a 1 line, 2 line or full house winner- all the 15 numbers of a ticket which is why it is often more popular to play because there are 3 ways to win rather than just 1! Both these types of bingo can also have a progressive jackpot which means you have to bingo in a certain amount of calls.
However there are also some new additions such as 30 ball bingo also known as ‘speed ball bingo’ because it’s the fastest way to play and win bingo! You only have a 3x3 bingo card and therefore getting a full house or any line is faster and easier to see. These games sometimes have a progressive jackpot too for more excitement but don’t have a lot of patterns as there are just 9 squares. 80 ball bingo is another bingo variant it has a 4x4 grid and there are lots of different patterns like with 75 ball bingo with different shapes and letters to cover.
Last but not least is Swedish bingo or 5 line bingo not as popular as the others but still fun to play. It is played using 75 balls but there are 5 jackpots to win- as well as the coverall you can win with 1 line, 2 line, 3 line and 4 lines. You win the line jackpots diagonally, vertically and horizontal or with the 4 corners.
How to find free bingo games?
No such thing as a free lunch? Well there is when it comes to bingo- many bingo sites today will offer players free bingo either in the form of free cash and bingo bonuses or with a free bingo game schedule. Okay, the bonuses do seem to sway more in the favour of funded players but there are some free no deposit bingo bonus offers available online too. Players can find free bingo games in the form of welcome bonuses with either a free no deposit sum- which you can use to get the hang of the games or a first deposit bonus where you can get free cash when you deposit. The site will match the amount you deposit which you can then spend on bingo so technically they are free bingo games. The best bingo sites are those with free bingo regular basis rather than just on sign up- a good loyalty program, re-deposit bonuses and free bingo games available to play daily will be accessible frequently rather than just a one off. Players should also look out for new bingo promotions too as bingo bonuses and free cash can be won during a specific period and if you don’t want free bingo then there are often great prizes on offer too!
How to choose bingo game online?
Like with all things, when playing bingo games online you want to make the most of your money. This site has scanned thought the masses to make sure you are only informed about the best bingo games but here are a few factors for players to bear in mind before sitting down and waiting for the numbers to be called.
