90-Ball Bingo is the most common version of bingo found in the UK, Australia and some parts of Europe. As opposed to the traditional American version of 75-Ball Bingo, 90-Ball Bingo is played with 90 balls and bingo tickets, rather than cards.
A 90-Ball Bingo ticket has 9 columns and 3 rows. Players will buy one sheet of six tickets, containing 90 numbers. While each row contains nine squares, only 5 of the squares are numbered with the remaining four left blank. Numbers range from 1 to 90, with all 90 numbers on each sheet of tickets. Therefore, every time a number is called, the player will be daubing that number on one of his or her tickets.
As in all bingo games, the object is to complete a pattern. However, the patterns remain consistent, where 75-Ball Bingo offers more than 300 patterns depending on the game. There are three possible winnings patterns in 90-Ball Bingo, One Line, Two Line and Full House (all three lines).
A One Line Pattern is where the player manages to mark, or daub, all numbers in a single line. Once a player has achieved a One Line Pattern, that player will call bingo and win the pre-determined prize for that pattern. Then the game continues until a player wins the Two Line Pattern.
A Two Line Pattern is won by completing two lines on a single 90-Ball Bingo ticket. Once a player has complete the Two Line Pattern, they will win the predetermined prize for that pattern, and once again gameplay continues until a player achieves a Full House Pattern.
