How To Play 90-Ball Bingo


Overview: How To Play 90-Ball Bingo
90-ball bingo is the standard form of bingo played in the United Kingdom. At Jackpot Cafe, the Bingo 90 game’s bingo cards have random numbers ranging from 1 through 90. As soon as the bingo game commences, the Jackpot Cafe computer will call out all 90 balls (from a pool of 90 balls) at random.

As the numbers are automatically called 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. You will hit BINGO and be eligible to win a prize amount in 90-ball bingo at Jackpot Cafe if the pattern on your bingo ticket matches the predetermined winning pattern.

1st place goes to the player that correctly marks off any horizontal line, the 2nd place winner is the player that covers any 2 line pattern, and the “Full House” winner is the player that covers all 3 lines on the card.
