Your Slingo Guide on How to Play 75-Ball Bingo
What Is 75 Ball Bingo?
75 ball bingo is the most popular form of bingo in the USA, and it’s gaining popularity in the UK too. With 75 balls instead of the usual 90, this version of the game offers players a quicker way to play.
The game is usually played over three cards, each with a 5x5 grid and a blank square in the centre. Players need to mark off a specific pattern to win, which will vary depending on the game. Rows can sometimes be completed vertically or horizontally, but there’s also the potential for lots more fun patterns! From hearts to ships and smiley faces, whichever pattern you’re playing for will be clearly highlighted on the game screen so you know what to look out for.
In 75 ball bingo games there’s usually just the one prize, making for a fast-paced gaming experience our players love.
75-Ball Bingo: Learn the Basics
Before you play 75 ball bingo online, you’ll need to learn the basics. Here’s a quick run-down of everything you need to know:
In 75 ball bingo, players must buy tickets for each game.
The price of a ticket varies for each bingo game. When tickets are available for purchase, the ticket price is clearly shown on the face of each ticket.
Once the game has started, each ticket has a unique ticket number.
Just like in traditional bingo, the aim is to mark off numbers on the grid when they are called out.
The player who is the first to mark off the required pattern wins the prize.
Players can choose to mark off numbers themselves or use the auto-daub feature.
75- Ball Bingo Cards
75 ball bingo uses 5x5 cards made up of 25 squares.
Each square contains a number, apart from the centre square which is "free" and will have a star icon in it.
In 75 ball bingo, a strip is a group of 3 tickets. Each number from 1 through to 75 will appear on each full strip, and if one of these numbers is called out it will be marked off on the card.
There are a huge variety of potential winning patterns in 75 ball bingo, so you’ll need to check with each individual game you play.
However, here are a few examples:
Coverall / Full house: all numbers are marked off (except the free square in the middle)
Heart shape: the numbers on the grid form a heart shape
Sailing ship: the numbers on the grid form a heart shape (if you use your imagination!)
Smiley face: a smiley face pattern is found on the grid
