90-BALL BINGO GAME DESCRIPTION

90-Ball Bingo90-Ball Bingo is traditionally played in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Gameplay is similar to 75-ball bingo, where players purchase cards and mark off numbers on a card as they are randomly called out, in order to achieve a winning game pattern.

While the basic foundation remains similar with 75-ball bingo, 90-ball bingo is different in the following areas:
  • Up to 90 numbers are called, instead of just 75.
  • Cards are issued in sets, where each set is composed of 6 cards.
  • Each set contains all numbers from 1-90, with no repeats.
  • A 90-ball bingo card is a 3x9 grid card (not 5x5).

90-BALL BINGO GAME OBJECTIVE

In a single game, 3 game patterns are played in succession: any horizontal line, any 2 horizontal lines, 3 horizontal lines (full card). As a game pattern is matched, the game progresses to the next pattern. The game ends when all game patterns have been formed.

Players compete to be the first one to form any of the 3 game patterns. Each winning pattern is awarded a percentage of the game pot.

The Jackpot amount is also awarded if the player gets a Full Card and the last ball called is any of the 3 winning balls displayed in the game.

Note that there is NO jackpot for the first 2 patterns (i.e. you can only win the Jackpot in the full card game pattern).

90-BALL BINGO CARDS

Players purchase cards in groups of 6, called a set. Each set contains all numbers from 1-90, with no repeats.

  • Each card contains 27 spaces, arranged in 3 rows and 9 columns.
  • Each row has 5 numbers and 4 random blank (Free) spaces.
