90 Ball Bingo - Tickets Please!

In a 90 Ball Bingo game, a Bingo Caller will shout out numbers between 1-90. Each number is called out once per game. If you get a winning number, you simply mark it on your ticket, and keep doing so until you get a winning BINGO combination.

Your 90 Ball tickets are laid out in a very orderly fashion. Every ticket has 3 rows and 9 columns, with each line containing 5 numbers and 4 blank spaces (that makes fifteen numbers per ticket). The numbers on each column of your ticket are organized in a way that all 90 numbers can show up at some point or other:

o    Column 1 = Numbers 1-9 

o    Column 2 = Numbers 10-19 

o    Column 3 = Numbers 20-29 

o    Column 4 = Numbers 30-39 

o    Column 5 = Numbers 40-49 

o    Column 6 = Numbers 50-59 

o    Column 7 = Numbers 60-69 

o    Column 8 = Numbers 70-79  

o    Column 9 = Numbers 80-90  

It is customary for 90 Ball Bingo games to be played in clusters of 6 tickets. This way all 90 numbers being called are spread across the cluster, or strip as it’s also known. With more numbers being called out, you’ll have a higher chance of winning!

What Does It Take to be 90 Ball Bingo Winner?

In 90 ball Bingo, you get THREE chances to win in each game! That’s right, 90 Ball Bingo games have three winning patterns, each with its own prize. The winning patterns can be: 1 row, 2 rows or 3 rows. A 3-row win is also called a ‘fullhousel’, The more rows you cover, the bigger the prize. 

Bingo caller

  • To achieve a winning pattern, all you have to do is mark off (daub) numbers as they are called out by the Bingo Caller
  • A caller calls the 1-90 numbers out one at a time as they are withdrawn by the bingo system. At every single game, each number may be called out only one time. 
  • The first person to get a winning pattern picks up the prize. 

In a Bingo Hall, the first person to catch a winning pattern shouts out BINGO. Online it’s a bit different. The program will alert you when you get your BINGO. Our Online Bingo games include a handy setting called auto-daub. Auto-daub will automatically mark your numbers for you when they are called out, saving you the trouble.

NOTE: At Wink Bingo, regardless of whether you use the auto-daub feature or mark your numbers manually, we won’t let you miss out on a winner. Even if your internet cuts out mid game, our system will keep on daubing on your behalf until you are back online!
