Overview: How To Play 90-Ball Bingo
90-ball bingo is the usual type of bingo played in the United Kingdom. At Jackpot Cafe, the Bingo 90 game’s bingo cards have random numbers that range from one to 90. As soon as the bingo game begins, the Jackpot Cafe computer will call out all 90 Bingo balls – from a pool of 90 balls – at random.

When the numbers are called automatically during gameplay, you will watch the numbers on your bingo card get marked off. If your bingo card has the number that is called, then that number is marked off.
