90 Ball Bingo is gaining increasing interest in the UK, and in fact quickly becoming the preferred leisure activity of women between the ages of 20 to 25.
During the last 5 years, the game has grown to be a phenomenon in the UK and is keeping a lot of British men and women alike thoroughly entertained (while the summer passes by as little more than a grey cloud)!
In addition, because of the astonishing growth of online 90 Ball bingo in the UK, a number of online giants, have ventured into the market of managing their own online bingo.

As with 75 Ball Bingo, 90 Ball bingo is called as such as it relates to the maximum quantity of numbers that can be called during the game. The bingo cards look slightly different with three horizontal rows and nine vertical columns.
As you’ll notice, each row has only five numbers spread across the full nine spaces, leaving the remaining four spaces blank. The numbers range from 1 to 90, the first column using the range 1-10, the second, numbers 11-20, the third, 21 to 30…you get the picture, up until the 9th column.
As the dealer calls the numbers, the players score each number called on their cards. The first player who completes each of three patterns shouts out “Bingo!”. As the win is confirmed, a new game begins.
The three classic patterns in 90 Ball Bingo are ‘1 Line’, ‘2 Line’ and ‘Full House’
The first player who completes a horizontal line of called numbers wins ‘1 Line’, the first to complete two horizontal lines wins ‘2 Lines’ and, the player who manages to complete all three lines wins the ‘Full House’. Prizes for each of the 3 patterns increase in value with the principle prize reserved for the Full House winner.
In 90 Ball bingo, a player can cover up to 48 tickets! Players can also buy a strip of six tickets which cover all numbers from 1 to 90, she is therefore bound to score out (mark) a number every time a bingo call is made.
90 Ball bingo is easier than 75 Ball bingo, because there are no complicated patterns to follow. The game is also conducted at a more leisurely pace than the 75 Ball version (while not taking any of the excitement out of it!).
