Bingo for Beginners

Bingo is a simple game to play and is really easy to get the hang of. Numbers are generated randomly, and you have to match these numbers to the numbers on your playing card(s). If you are first to cover all the numbers of the required pattern (it could be a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line, the four corners or a full house) then you win.

Have a visit at Gala Bingo, one of the best online bingo sites in the UK, for great bonuses and different variations of online bingo games available.

Bingo is a simple game to play and is really easy to get the hang of. If you play slots online then the game of bingo is just as easy and fun. Numbers are generated randomly, and you have to match these numbers to the numbers on your playing card(s).

When you play the game online, you can have your playing cards randomly allocated to you, or you can choose from a selection. The more cards you play, the better your chance of winning. However, the more cards you play, the more it will cost you!

Each game will display the numbers that have been and are being called, and you will also see the pattern of numbers that you need to cover. You should make sure that you pay attention so that you don't miss any numbers and mark them all off on your cards. However, the majority of online games have an option to automatically mark the numbers for you. You may find that you prefer to mark off the numbers yourself, using your mouse as a dabber, because the game will be more fun and more of an interactive experience.

If you are still feeling unsure, some of the online rooms will even let you play for free without an initial deposit - although of course you won't win anything without a wager. For example, King Jackpot will let you play without making a deposit, and they will even give you £10 to play with. When you are confident enough to make a deposit, they will match it 100% with their own money.

Usually, you will be playing 90 ball bingo (the tradtional UK bingo) or 75 ball bingo (the US import). The differences between these games are described fully in the bingo games section of the site. However, there are some typical winning patterns for 75 ball and 90 ball games illustrated below.

do not completely obscure the numberNB
Note that if you are not playing online, do not totally obscure the numbers otherwise your claim cannot be verified. Most bingo players use a "dabber" - a special circular felt tip pen that covers over the number but does not completely obscure it. See the adjacent picture.

 

 

 

 

Multiple Winners

There can be more than one winner when a number is called, but all winning bingos share the prize pot evenly.
