About 90-Ball Bingo

A 90-ball bingo game is what we might refer to as a classic here in Ireland or in the UK. It’s one of the oldest and most traditional styles of bingo to be played, and it was originally introduced into bingo halls back in the 1960’s.

It’s also played widely across the globe too, but it still remains the most popular bingo choice in Ireland and the UK. The basic aim of the game is to mark off numbers on a card ranging from 1-90, and there are usually 3 possible chances of a win on each game.

90-ball games still remain massively popular in bingo halls up and down the country, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they have also now taken to the wonderful world of online bingo too. Even though online bingo offers up so many other bingo variants these days, the classic 90-ball games still appear to be the most popular choice amongst players. With such an established structure and up to 3 chances of a win on each game, what’s not to love about this old faithful.

How Do You Win A Game Of 90-Ball Bingo?

Once you’ve purchased your 90-ball bingo tickets, there can then be up to 3 ways to win on each game.

This can vary from between individual bingo halls and sites, but generally, the 3 different ways are as follows:

  1. 1 Line
  2. 2 Line
  3. 3 Lines (Also known as a Full House)

Simply mark off the numbers on your ticket as they are called, and when you fill any of the stated patterns then you have won.

It’s worth noting that if you have purchased a book of 6 tickets, then you will have to mark off a number every time one is called. This is because you will have every number shared across your strip, so will therefore have every number from 1-90.
