So, if you’re a Bingo virgin, would you like to know how to play Bingo at bet365? Well, first you must first buy tickets for the game. All tickets must be bought before the 10 second countdown to a game starts.
There are three types of Bingo game available on Bingo at bet365, 90 ball, 90 ball Spanish Variant, 75 ball Variant. In the 90 ball game and Spanish variant, numbers between 1 and 90 are called out randomly. The numbers called are marked on the tickets you have bought.
In the 90 ball game, there are 3 prizes to win – 1 line, 2 lines and Full House or Bingo. The player who is the first to have all the numbers called displayed in a horizontal line on their ticket wins the 1 line prize. To win the 2 lines prize, the player must have all the numbers called on 2 lines of the same ticket. To claim the house or bingo prize the player must have all the numbered squares called on a ticket. There are only 2 prizes to win in the 90 Ball Spanish Variant – 1 Line and Full House. The criteria for the game are the same theory as above for the 90 ball but without the 2 line prize.
The game ends when a player has claimed the House or Bingo prize, or when all 90 numbers have been called.
In the 75 ball variant game, numbers between 1 and 75 are called out randomly. The numbers called are marked on the tickets you have bought. There are 5 prizes to win – 1 line, 2 lines, 3 lines, 4 lines and 5 lines. The player who is the first to have all the numbers called displayed in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line on their ticket wins the 1 line prize.
To win the 2 line prize, the player must have all the numbers called on 2 horizontal lines of the same ticket. To win the 2 lines, 3 line or 4 line prizes the player must have all the numbers called on the number of lines required for the prize on the same ticket. Only the 1 line prize can be won by having all numbers called displayed in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line on their ticket. To win subsequent line prizes only numbers called displayed on horizontal lines on their ticket qualify. Diagonal and vertical lines only count towards the 1 line prize.
To claim the 5 lines or bingo prize the player must have all the numbered squares called on a ticket.
The game ends when a player has claimed the House or bet365 Bingo prize, or when all 75 numbers have been called.
To tell the truth, Bingo isn’t quite my game, regardless of how many Bingo Offers I get. I’m not one for games of chance, prefering ones which at least have some skill requirement. Not that I’m a poker man, but prefer Blackjack really when I’m at the casino. What’s your pleasure?
