If you are dipping your toes into the waters of bingo for the first time, whether it’s online or offline, then you might be wondering which bingo game to try first. After all, there are plenty to choose from. Read this little guide to some of the most popular types of bingo games played online and in bingo halls to give you an idea of what’s on offer.
Traditional bingo games
If you have ever played bingo before then it is highly likely that you have played traditional bingo games that involve covering rows, corners or all 25 squares on your card (known as coverall or blackout bingo) as the corresponding numbers are called out. These types of bingo are played with 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo.
This type of bingo simply refers to more than one bingo game being played at the same time. For example, one round might see the winner having to cover four corners of their bingo card to win, the next round might see coverall or blackout bingo winning the prize.
This type of bingo is different from regular bingo games in that the numbers are not called out until someone wins. Instead, a set number of balls is used and, if no one wins, another set of balls is drawn and the game carries on until there is a winner. As every player has to pay to stay in the next round, the jackpot keeps building up throughout the game until it is won.
If you are unsure which type of bingo game to play, don’t worry, you can try them all! Most types of bingo are offered at good bingo halls and online bingo sites, so you can give them all a go to see which one you like best.
