Bingo Games

Playing bingo can be very exciting, and over recent years bingo enthusiasts have found that they can enjoy their gaming experience in a realistic environment without even having to leave their homes, thanks to the emergence of high quality online bingo sites such as Gala Bingo, Astro Bingo, and Foxy Bingo, amongst others. As with regular bingo halls, these online bingo sites offer different types of games for players to enjoy, and with many sites offering free practice sessions before you sign up and play for money, you can spend time getting used to the different games before you actually spend any real cash on playing.

Below are some of the different games that you will be able to play when you join an online bingo site:

Single line win games:

The classic single line win game is where you mark off your numbers as the bingo caller calls them out. You win the specified prize if you are the first to mark off all of the numbers on one line on your ticket.

Two line win games:

The two line win game works along the same lines as a one line game, but in order to win the specified prize you need to be the first to mark off all of your numbers on two lines of your ticket based upon the numbers called out by the bingo caller.

Full house games:

The full house game usually offers the largest prize, and this is where you have to be the first to mark off all of the numbers on your ticket in order to win, based upon the numbers called out by the caller.

The three types of bingo games above are played as part of 90-ball bingo, which is the classic UK bingo game, where cards have nine columns and three rows, with each ticket containing fifteen numbers. The three rows on the ticket each contain five numbers, and to win a one line game you must be able to mark off all of the five numbers in one row; to win the two line game you must be able to mark off all of the numbers in two of these rows; and to win the full house game you must be able to mark off the numbers in all three of the rows.

American Bingo:
A newer trend emerging amongst online bingo gaming sites is American Bingo, which is a seventy-five ball bingo game, and is played on cards/tickets that have five rows and five columns, with a free centre square in most cases. Each game requires the player to mark off the numbers in a set pattern as specified at the start of the game, and the first to mark off all of their numbers to form that pattern wins. You can also play full house games with American Bingo, where you have to mark off all of the numbers on your card based on the number called in order to win, and this is known as a Blackout in American Bingo.
