Popular among players in the UK, parts of Europe, Australia and parts of South America, the 90 ball online bingo game, also called Housie, is just one of the many different games offered at most bingo sites. 75 ball bingo also provides for another entertaining variation of the game. Both 90 ball bingo and 75 ball bingo games each have very different rules and overall advantages that should be considered before real time play.
The most common British bingo games that include names such as Bingo Day, William Hill Bingo, Paddy Power, Foxy Bingo, Gala Bingo and 888 Ladies Bingo are overall easier games to play as well as faster paced games than the 75 ball versions. With a large number of both 90 ball and 75 ball bingo players, player preference becomes the deciding factor on which particular games new players will most likely be attracted to.
In the British 90 ball game, the player strives to form straight line patterns as opposed to the more scattered patterns that are prominent to the 75 ball game. The 90 ball games allow for patterns consisting of single line, double line, and full house or “blackout” wins. The British game is also divided into strips consisting of six different tickets. Chances of winning in the UK game are high and there is a greater chance of winning overall. In the 90 ball version, as one player wins with a line, another prize is awarded to the next player to complete one with the biggest prize being for the full house pattern. If more than one player claims a prize, the winnings will be divided equally among the winners.
The original British 90 ball bingo ticket has 3 rows and 9 columns. The rows consist of 5 numbers each with 4 blank spaces. There are 15 numbers total on a single ticket ranging from numbers 1 to 90. The standard 90 ball is won when a player completes a full horizontal line on a bingo ticket. Depending on the game, there can be several more winners on the same card for double line and full house wins. Double line wins will consist of 10 numbers total and full house wins will consist of all 15 numbers. Many bingo sites offer progressive jackpots where the top prize amounts are very high and winnings increase as the number of players increase.
There are many bingo sites to choose from for 90 ball bingo games and many of them have very attractive offers. William Hill Bingo is currently offering a £25 sign up bonus as well as a £25 deposit bonus. Foxy Bingo is offering a £20 sign up bonus and a £50 deposit bonus. Bingo Day, Sky Bingo, 888 Ladies Bingo and Gala Bingo also have some great offers.
