About 90 Ball Bingo

90 ball bingo is by far the most popular instant bingo game played by bingo players in the UK.  90 ball bingo is also very popular in Australia and New Zealand, however in the USA it is the 75 ball variant which has usurped the 90 ball’s popularity.

The great feature about playing 90 ball bingo is that there are three different ways to win in each game, with three separate cash prizes to be won.  The main bingo prize goes to the person who crosses off the first complete single horizontal line (single-line bingo).  A double-line prize is then given to whoever successfully crosses off 2 horizontal lines. The massive Full House cash prize (normally a progressive jackpot worth up to £200,000) is given to the person who manages to cross all of his numbers off the ticket.

The 90 Ball Bingo Ticket

The 90 ball bingo ticket is always bought in standard format.  The 90 ball bingo ticket is comprised of 3 rows and 9 columns creating 27 spaces in total.  The first column contains the numbers 1-9, the second column 10 to 19, the third column 20 – 29 and this continues up the last column which contains the number 90 – 90.

In order to ensure that each your ticket is unique and that not everyone wins at the same time, each ticket only has 5 numbers and 4 spaces in each column. This ensures randomness in the numbers so that there are thousands of potential unique tickets and numbered combinations.

How to Play 90 Ball Bingo

Like many other instant win games, the structure and format of 90 ball bingo is very straight forward and easy to understand.

Once you buy your ticket and the game begins, the teller will pick a ball out at random.  In online instant bingo games this will be automated by a RNG (random number generator).  As each number is read out you should cross your number off your ticket with a “dauber”.  Most online bingo sites will have an automated option to do this for you in case you are feeling lazy – another one of the great facets of playing online bingo.

If you’re one of the lucky winners to have crossed out a single-line (bingo), double-line or Full House (all of the numbers) before anyone else than you will win a massive cash prize.  The total value of the cash prize and jackpot in 90 ball bingo rooms depends on the price of the ticket and the bingo site that you’re playing at.  For example, a typical 90 ball bingo room will have a £100 cash prize for 1p per ticket, or £10,000 cash prize for £1 bingo tickets.  It all depends on how much you pay to enter the game.  You will always be able to check the exact payouts and jackpot prizes before you purchase a ticket.  For example, at Wink Bingo there is a £500 Coverall Jackpot in the 10p 90 ball bingo games.  This comprises of £100 for the single-line winner, £150 for double-line winner and £250 for the Full House Winner.

Top Tips for Playing 90 Ball Bingo

Unlike other online games, 90 ball bingo games will commence at a set time or schedule.  You will have a better chance of winning money by playing in the 90 ball bingo rooms that have the least players.  This is because the less players that there are in a game, the less players that you have to compete with.  Your chances of winning a cash prize of Full House Jackpot against 100 other bingo players will be massively higher than a game with 1,000 players for example.
