All you need to know to start playing bingo today

Bingo is a game of chance where randomly-selected numbers are drawn and players match those numbers to those appearing on 5×5 squares which are printed or electronically represented and are known as “cards.”

Bingo Rules

The aim of online bingo is to complete the pattern on your bingo card. Different bingo sites have different patterns, varying in difficulty, but the objective each time is the same – to fill the numbers within the pattern. Other games are “coverall” where you need to get every number on your bingo card.

Bingo cards are selected by random for you and depending on the site there is a maximum number of bingo cards you can play with at any one time.

Your bingo card is displayed on screen. Some sites have auto fill so you don’t have to worry too much about concentrating, however, watch out for the sites that don’t, you don’t want to miss out. Numbers tend to be called on average about every 10 seconds, which gives enough time if you are paying attention!!

The bingo game ends when someone gets bingo. The cash prize is split among the winner/s.

New bingo games begin straight away.
