If you aren't aware of it yet, you might be interested to know that online bingo is actually extremely popular in the UK, in particular among women aged between 20 to 25. If you're a bingo player yourself, then the above statement is hardly surprising, since online bingo is undoubtedly one of the most engrossing, entertaining and enjoyable games around. One of the most popular bingo games is called 90 ball bingo. Of course, when you have women playing the game, you can find a fair share of men close by as well, which only adds further to the popularity of 90 ball bingo!
90 ball bingo has been played in the United Kingdom since 2005. Its growth has been remarkably steady since that time, and today you can find this variant all over the Internet and even on TV. Some of the notable web sites that have begun to introduce their own bingo bingo games are Yahoo Bingo, Virgin Games Bingo and Foxy Bingo. On the small screen, you can typically see bingo sites now sponsoring some of the heavyweight British TV programs such as 'Emmerdale' and many more.
How to Play 90 Ball Bingo
Just like virtually every variation of bingo, 90 ball bingo is remarkably easy to play. The name of the game is derived from the fact that players can only get a maximum of 90 balls called during the course of a game. The bingo cards used in 90 ball bingo have three horizontal and nine vertical columns. The numbers in these cards are placed in three rows. On each of these rows, five spaces have numbers on them with the remaining four spaces being blank. The numbers used in the game can be anything from 1 to 90. The numbers in the first column are 1 to 10, the numbers in the second column are 11 to 20, and the numbers in the third column are 21 to 30. This numbering scheme goes on until the ninth column.
90 Ball Bingo So Simple
90 ball bingo begins with all the players securing their cards, after which the dealer draws numbers randomly and calls them aloud. Just as in any other variation of bingo, the players then mark each number on their card(s). The winner is the first player who manages to complete the three patterns on their cards and shouts out 'Bingo!'. The numbers on the card are checked by the dealer and if it checks out, a new game starts.
One thing you have to remember in 90 Ball bingo is that you're allowed as many as 48 tickets to play with. You may also have six tickets that can accommodate all the numbers from 1 to 90. This will give you a far greater chance to mark out all the numbers when they're being called
