How To Play 90-Ball Bingo


Overview: How To Play 90-Ball Bingo
90-ball bingo is the main form of bingo played in the United Kingdom. At Jackpot Cafe, the Bingo 90 game’s bingo cards have random numbers ranging from one through 90. As soon as the bingo game begins, the Jackpot Cafe computer will call out (in random order) all 90 Bingo balls from a pool of 90 balls.

As the numbers are called automatically during gameplay, you will watch the numbers get marked off on your bingo card. If your bingo card has the number that is called, then that number is marked off. You will hit BINGO and be eligible to win a prize in 90-ball bingo at Jackpot Cafe if the pattern on your ticket matches the winning pattern.

First place goes to the player that correctly marks off any horizontal line, the 2nd place winner is the player that correctly marks off any 2 horizontal lines, and the “Full House” winner goes to the player that correctly marks off all three horizontal lines on their card.

If you’d like to find out which days and/or hours are specifically the best times to play online bingo, read on…

As far as AM and PM is concerned, playing Internet bingo games at Jackpot Cafe during the morning, lunch time, evening, or bedtime, makes exactly no difference at all. Yet, some players at Jackpot Cafe have said that the best days to play online tend to be on Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s, during midweek, and not at all on Mondays. With regards to Saturdays or Sundays, they remain strictly down the middle.

Even though there is not a thread of genuine evidence to support these thoughts (on when is the best time to play online bingo), virtual bingo games providers such as Jackpot Cafe assure players that playing bingo on the Internet at any time, on any day, provides equal odds of winning bingo.

Just click the “Turn On” button and then select the cards you would like to have auto-daubed. Also, you can turn off the auto-daub feature at any time by clicking the “Turn Off” button or by removing the check-mark beside the card you chose to autoplay. Of course, you always have the option to switch Autodaub back on anytime you want.

Whether you let the system autodaub for you or you daub your numbers manually, neither choice will affect the outcome of the game. If your bingo card wins, Jackpot Cafe will award you the prize and/or jackpot – guaranteed!
