Today there are many variations of the bingo game and the most popular ones are the 90 ball bingo and the 75 ball bingo. These two different types of bingo have some similarities as well as some differences. Both these types of bingos are played in different parts of the world although in different formats. For example in North America the 75 ball bingo is played with a special 5 by 5 card where the center square is normally marked free. In some parts of Europe, South America, the UK and Australia the 90ball bingo is played on a 9 by 3 card. It is however important to keep in mind that both these games can be played online as well.
The aim of the 75 ball bingo game is to mark off specific numbers in order to achieve a specific pattern. This game contains 25 squares that are always arranged in 5 columns that usually named B, I, N, G and O. Apart from the center square all the other squares have a random number that is between 1 and 75 while the center square is called free space and should always be left blank. Each 75-ball bingo game has a pattern that must be achieved by a player to become a winner and it is announced before the start of the game.
On the other hand 90-ball bingo, every card includes 3 horizontal lines as well as nine columns and each line contains 5 numbers and this will mean that every card has 15 numbers. The first column has the numbers 1 to 10, the second 11 to 20, the third 21 to 3o all the way until the final column which has 81 to 90. The 90-ball bingo gameplay includes in total 3 stages namely one line, two lines and lastly full house. The one line game players’ task is to mark one horizontal line across completely and this will be 5 numbers. The two lines game is to mark off horizontally two lines on one card and this will mean 10 marked numbers. The Full house game requires all the numbers to be marked off on one card and this will mean 15 numbers.
Most of the differences of the 90-ball bingo and 75-ball bingo are rather obvious. One of these differences is that it is easier to complete the 75-ball bingo than the 90-ball bingo. And this will also mean that players can play more 75-ball bingo games in a given time compared to a 90-ball bingo game thereby increasing the chances of a player winning. The prizes that are offered by both 75-ball bingo and 90-ball bingo are both competitive. However, in the 75-ball bingo a pattern that will require many calls will have a better payout than the one that needs a few calls. This is also the case in 90-ball bingo where full house pays better than one line and two lines.
