Introducing 75-Ball Bingo
As you may have guessed, 75-Ball Bingo is a Bingo game variant which uses 75 bingo balls. It is one of the most popular variants of Bingo, particularly in the US but also across UK and European markets too.
75-ball bingo tickets feature a 5x5 number grid with five numbers across and five down. Each column of numbers is positioned beneath a letter and the word BINGO is shown along the top of the card. The layout contains random numbers grouped in size for ease of finding numbers. The layout is as follows:
- There are five numbers in the B column, numbered from 1 to 15.
- There are five numbers in the I column, numbered 16 through 30.
- There are in the N column, which ranges from 31 to 45, is separated by one black space. (Every card in the N row has a blank area in the middle that can be used by any player to finish their patterns.)
- There are five numbers in the G column, ranging from 46 to 60.
- There are five numbers in the O column, numbered 61 through 75.
The aim of the game is to be the first player to match their numbers with the numbers called in a specified pattern. But more on this later.
