The game of Bingo originated in Italy in 1530 under the name “Lo Giuoco del Lotto D’Italia” and was played every Saturday. The game was then moved to France in late 1770, called “Le Lotto”, and it became popular with wealthy Frenchmen. Initially known as Beano, it was renamed Bingo by a New York salesman.
The number on a US Bingo ticket is randomly selected from 75 possible numbers, whereas a UK Bingo ticket is randomly selected from 90 possible numbers. Online Bingo has become a popular form of entertainment in recent years, with many sites focusing only on Bingo and offering a variety of variants with fantastic bonuses.
Bingo is a popular game because it is easy to play, has no learning curve, and is a simple luck-based game that the whole family can enjoy.
Different Online Bingo Games
75 Ball Bingo
Each square has a number in this Bingo variant except for the centre square, which is “Free.” One line prizes are awarded based on all the numbers’ vertical, horizontal or diagonal placement.
90 Ball Bingo
There are three rows and nine columns on the 90 Ball Bingo tickets, making this form of Bingo the most popular in the UK. Three prizes are available in 90 Ball Bingo: a 1 line prize, a 2 line prize, and a full house prize.
Deal or No Deal Bingo
The game is similar to regular 90-ball Bingo. This game got its inspiration from the famous British game show Deal or No Deal, in which players choose a numbered box at the beginning. Bingo variants such as this one can be won by completing one line, two lines, the full house or the Deal or No Deal Feature. To win the Deal or No Deal Feature, players must decide whether they want to win the jackpot or the prize hidden in the box they select at the beginning.
