90 Ball Bingo
If you’ve played Bingo in a Bingo Hall across the UK, chances are, you played 90 Ball Bingo. This hugely popular version of the game rose to prominence in the 1960’s and is named because there are 90 possible Bingo balls that can be called out.
To play, simply purchase your Tickets, each of which has three horizontal lines with five numbers, for a total of 15 numbers on your Ticket.
There are usually three ways to win a prize. If you complete one horizontal line before or at the same time as any other player, by completing two lines, or by completing all three lines, which is also known as getting a ‘Full House’. The prize usually increases between each win, with the jackpot or biggest prize being claimed by the first player to complete a Full House.
75 Ball Bingo
Named because there are 75 numbered balls (from 1-75), this version of Bingo Is largely popular in the USA and Canada as well as with online Bingo players.
In this version of the game, you usually purchase between 1-25 Bingo Tickets to play.
Instead of completing lines to win, in 75 Ball Bingo, you’re looking to complete the pattern found on your Bingo Ticket. Patterns can be flowers, hearts, stars or coveralls – where you need to cover all of the numbers on a Ticket.
WTG (way to go), WD (well done) and BRB (be right back) are three of the most common phrases used in our chat rooms. Check out our Bingo Lingo page for more.

The objective of coverall 75 Ball Bingo games is, quite simply, to cover all the numbers on the Ticket (of which there are 25). The first player to cover all of their numbers is the winner.
