How to Play European Bingo
European bingo or 90 ball bingo is played by multiple players, where a moderator randomly picks out the bingo balls numbered from 1 to 90. Players of this game have to mark the numbers on their tickets as and when the numbers are called out by the moderator, or a Random Number Generator (RNG) in case of online games. To win bingo, a player has to complete marking numbers in a particular pattern on the ticket. Players can win when they –
Complete marking any single row (mark all five numbers in a line)
Complete marking any two rows ( 10 numbers in 2 lines) or
Complete marking all the numbers on the ticket (15 numbers), which is also known as ‘full house’
The moderator or the RNG software can call out a maximum of 90 balls, within which players should get their winning numbers. While this form of bingo is offered in a number of bingo halls and public places across the UK, it can also be played online through a reliable website that offers 90 ball bingo for real money.
