75 Ball Bingo – what is it?
Basically, 75 Ball Bingo cards have 25 squares, arranged in five vertical & five horizontal rows. Each of the 25 squares on the 75 ball bingo card (except for the centre square) contains a number between 1 & 75. The aim of the game is to complete a shape or every number (coverall) on the card. Pattern Bingo is more commonly associated with 75 Ball Bingo than its 90 Ball counterpart.
90 Ball Bingo
This is the traditional form of bingo in which you purchase a card and try to obtain 1 line, 2 lines or a Full house before all the other players in the room.
I’ve seen the progressive jackpots on the site, what are they?
Winkbingo has two progressive jackpots – 75 Ball Moneyball, the 90 Ball Full House. To win the progressive jackpots, a player needs to call house in a certain number of calls or less.
Ok, so how do I actually purchase Bingo tickets?
Easily! When you go into a room, on the left hand side there’s a ticket panel where you can choose the number of tickets you wish to purchase. The number of tickets you can purchase per game varies from room to room. Once you select the number of tickets you’d like to purchase for the game, click on the ‘Buy Selected Tickets’ tab.
What is Autobuy?
Autobuy is a handy feature which enables you to buy bingo cards (excluding FREE cards) for the next few games without you having to purchase cards manually for every new game. You can select how many games you want to play and the maximum card price you want to buy. As long as you are in the room & do not close the application, your chosen number of games & cards will play according to your customised settings.
If selected games in Autobuy did not complete…
Autobuy will only stop working if you have left the room, closed the application or have run out of funds. Your autobuy settings will not be saved if you leave the room for any reason.
When will Autobuy purchase cards?
The cards to each game you have selected will be purchased as soon as the cards are available to buy.
If you want to buy more cards before a game…
Even while Autobuy is activated you are still able to purchase more cards manually if you wish.
How much does it cost to play?
We’ve got tickets to suit all budgets, with tickets ranging from 0p (Free Bingo) & 1p right up to £2.
What happens if I purchase a card & then lose connection?
In the eventuality that you are disconnected, don’t worry. As soon as there is confirmation that you have purchased tickets then these will remain active within that game & any winning funds will be credited to your account.
What’s a PREBUY?
In a number of games you have the opportunity to purchase tickets for a game for a significantly longer period than in most of the live rooms. The room will have a stipulated time & day in which the game will take place. This is usually used for special promotions.
Chat Hosts are always going on about LPs or JPs – what are they?
These are basically loyalty points and they can be exchanged for bingo tickets. We offer lots of ways to win points, including refer a friend, buying bingo tickets & joining in with our chat games.
Ok, so how do I redeem Joy Points?
That’s easy peasy. Just go to the My Wik section and click on ‘Manage Points’. The number of Points you have available for redemption will be displayed. Select how many you wish to redeem & enter the amount in the box & click the ‘Submit’ button. The redemption will happen instantly. Remember 1000 JPs = £1 in Bonus Funds
I love a good chit chat – how can I chat on Wink Bingo?
