The Rules of Bingo

Bingo is a game like Keno and Lotto, which are played a great deal in France. Consequently, novices won’t notice any difference when trying this variant, the object of which is to guess which numbers will be randomly drawn following the tumbling of balls. In fact, Bingo can be played with 30, 75, 80 and even 90 balls. All of are numbered. The player holds a "Bingo grid", a card containing checkboxes with numbers which are precisely those to which the balls relate.

The difficulty of this game is thus being able to predict with precision and accuracy the several numbers that will be randomly drawn from among a vast assortment of balls. But that's not all: it is further necessary to opt for the appropriate bet in this game. Each wager is subject to a particular placement on what is called the "Bingo zone", a colored geometric area appearing on the grid: some are vertical, horizontal, and rectangular, and may include five, ten or even fifteen boxes, depending on the variation of Bingo that you are playing.

How to Play Bingo

Once you are furnished with one or more Bingo grids, you will have to check off a total of 30 numbered balls from 1 to 90 depending on the variation. The procedure is thus quite similar to Lotto, in which one also marks boxes on a panel of varied numbers. Next comes the moment of the draw: the numbers are drawn at random. If your predictions are accurate to the slightest extent, the boxes you have checked off will be highlighted to show you that you have selected a winning number.

You will get a "Bingo" when five of the numbers drawn permit you to compose a line, whether vertically, horizontally or even diagonally. A voice-over that usually corresponds to that of the referee or croupier announces over the wire the numbers that are drawn at random.

How to Play Online Bingo

Online bingo functions in exactly the same way as traditional bingo. If you are playing online Bingo, the functions should normally be automated for you for the most part: you have the option of either allowing the computer to select the numbers for you also. The computer will automatically mark your bingo cards for you as you play but you can also choose to mark them manually. Players often prefer the automatic option as it means they do not miss marking a number once it comes out.

The Different Variations of Bingo

The game normally comes to a close when 30 Bingo balls have been drawn. The players who will have successfully filled in an entire row will win a prize. The prizes vary according to the results attained. Sometimes, in the context of Bingo tournaments, it is the player who has checked off the highest number of correct numbers who wins. In fact, the more lines of Bingo the player completes in the course of a game, the more he wins. Remember also that the methods of winning at Bingo also depend on the variants of the game, and bingo can be played with up to 90 balls!
