About the Game
The history of 90-ball Bingo can be traced back to a lottery-style game played in Italy in the 16th century. From there, the game spread to France, and then to Britain, Germany, and elsewhere.
How it actually developed is a mystery, much like the origins of its name. It has been suggested that the name was adopted from a slang term used by British customs officers when a search was successful. A more likely story, however, is that Hugh J. Ward, one of the men partly responsible for the rapid spread of the game in the early 20th century, overheard a player call ‘Bingo’ instead of ‘Beano’, which was the game’s original name. He like it, adopted it, and the rest, as they say, is history.
At its most basic, it is played by marking off numbers on a card that match the numbers called by a caller. When you play 90-ball games with us, you can let the auto dab software do all the work of marking matching numbers for chances to win either the line 1 or line 2 prize, or to win the bigger full house prize.
A Closer Look
The virtual cards you receive when you buy into our 90-ball Bingo games are almost identical to those you would receive in halls and other venues in which the game is played traditionally. They feature a grid of 3 rows and 9 columns, which means there are 27 squares on the card.
Each row features 5 squares containing numbers, and 4 blank squares. In most cases, the first column on your card is where numbers between 1 and 9 or 10. The second column features numbers from the range between 10 and 19, or 11 and 20, and so on. When buying into a game, you can get just 1 card, or you can buy as many as 6 cards, which offers you better chances of completing the lines or full house you need to win.
Playing the Game
Depending on how many cards players buy, playing 90-ball Bingo games in halls can be a frantic experience, as the dabbing is manual. That is not something you ever have to worry about at JackpotCity Bingo, whether you play on computer or mobile device.
Instead of a person drawing numbered balls from a drum, Microgaming’s state-of-the-art Random Number Generator produces numbers that are called by the software. You still get to enjoy the fun and humour that usually accompanies calling, because the software that powers our games is that good. If any of numbers on your cards match those that are called, that number will be dabbed automatically. The first players with completed lines win line prizes, while the first player to dab all 15 numbers on their card, also known as full house, wins the big pot.
