Rules of Bingo

Bingo rules are the most important part of the game theory to be learned by all the players. Most of the online casinos may provide different bingo rules depending on the type of the game you choose to play. Bingo has lots of variations and variants of game rules as well as pokies and blackjack. Therefore it is advisable to check the bingo rules before you start playing the game at this or that particular bingo hall.

Bingo Basics

As a rule, the game starts when all the players buy bingo tickets. A bingo ticket is a card with a 5x5 grid. 5 columns on the card correspond to 5 letters of the name of the game "B-I-N-G-O". 24 numbers per each card are random from the limits of 1 to 75. The center of the card is an empty space. After that the game begins, and the caller selects numbers at a random and calls them. As soon as the caller calls one number, all the players mark it on their tickets. The winner is determined when one or several of the players complete the winning bingo pattern. The pattern can be different depending on the hall the game is held. As in one casino it can be a line, either vertical, horizontal or diagonal, a full house (when all the numbers are to be covered) or any symbol, letter or digit.

The numbers in the columns of a Bingo ticket are selected at random and printed according to the range - numbers in the B column are from 1 to 15, in the I column between 16 and 30, in the N column (that contains four numbers and the free (blank) space) between 31 and 45, in the G column between 46 and 60, and in the O column between 61 and 75.

Players are provided with series of unique cards, that sometimes count 4,000 or 6,000. Some manufacturers produce cards with a series number that means that the cards with the same series number will have the same numbers in the same places.
