Everything You Need to Know About Bingo Numbers

When you choose a bingo game, the number of bingo numbers is usually displayed in the name. For example:

  • 90 ball bingo – 90 numbers
  • 75 ball bingo – 75 numbers
  • 30 ball bingo – 30 numbers

Not all of these numbers will appear on your bingo card and each game is different. In 75 ball bingo, there will be 24 numbers on your card, while in 90 ball bingo, there are 15 numbers on the bingo card. No matter which game you choose, the ultimate goal is to get a full house by daubing all numbers on your bingo card. This will win you the top bingo jackpot prize.


Daubing Your Bingo Cards

If you have played at a brick and mortar bingo hall, you will know that it can be stressful daubing bingo numbers when you have multiple bingo cards to check. For those unfamiliar with this term, daubing is when numbers on your bingo card are marked off. The good news is that it is much easier to have multiple bingo cards when you are playing bingo online. In online bingo, players can toggle their settings to have the numbers daubed automatically. This takes a lot of the pressure off, especially when you have bought many bingo cards.

However, while it can be much easier to have your numbers daubed automatically, some players will still opt to do this manually. Why? Well, it adds much more excitement to the game!


How to Increase Your Odds Playing Online Bingo

Like all forms of gambling, bingo is a game of chance. This means there are no guarantees when playing that you are going to win. However, that does not mean you cannot improve your odds of winning. Here are some bingo gameplay tips to consider if you want to increase your chances of getting a win:

  • Bingo rooms – the number of players in a bingo room can have a big impact on your odds of winning. The more players there are in a bingo room, the less chance you have of winning. Always consider the number of players in a bingo room before joining, but remember, it is essential to weigh up the number of players in the room with the size of the jackpot available. Smaller bingo rooms can mean smaller prize pots up for grabs
  • Bingo cards – players should try and buy as many bingo cards as they possibly can when playing online bingo games. The more cards you have, the higher your chances are of winning. The number of cards you get will all depend on what your budget is. Players should never exceed their budget when purchasing bingo cards
  • Bingo variant – the more bingo numbers there are in circulation in a game, the higher your chances are of winning. Players will want games to go on as long as possible as this depletes the bingo numbers in play

If you implement each of these tips in your online bingo gameplay, you will increase your odds of getting a bingo win.
