How to Play

Bingo Basics

Dabber – Bingo dabber is ink-filled bottle with a foam tip on it used to mark called numbers. When you touch the bingo card with the foam tip it marks the square.

Bingo Card – A card containing 24 numbered spaces and one free space, on which you play BINGO. Numbers are assigned at random on each card and are arranged on a 5 x 5 grid.

Bingo Book – A number of different coloured bingo cards bound together to form a book to be played one for each game at a bingo session. A “3 up” contains 3 cards per page, a “6 Up”, 6 cards per page and a “9 Up”, 9 cards per page.

Bingo Board – An electronic display that lights up showing each number as it is called and the pattern needed to win that particular game. It looks like a bingo card and shows what variation of bingo game being played on that particular game on the program. For example: 2 lines, blackout, etc.

Pattern – The shape you need to cover on your card with called out numbers in order to achieve a BINGO!

Bingo Game Variations

Hardway – Some games will be played without the use of the free space.

Wild – Some games will contain a wild number. The last digit of the first ball out for that game will become a wild number, making all numbers ending in that number wild. For example: if G56
is the first number, all numbers ending in 6 on your cards are considered called.
Odd/Even – Some games will be played odd or even. The last digit of the first ball out on that game is used to determine odd or even. For example: if I28 is the first number, all the even numbers are considered called.

Regular game – Games that are purchased as a „package? or book (10 pages) and played as part of bingo session.

Special game – Games that are played with a different set of cards than the books purchased for regular games.

Progressive game – A special game with prize amount that grows until it is won. The prize amount increases each time it is played. If there is no winner in the specified number of calls, the game will continue on for a consolation prize. Different variations of progressive games add dollars or numbers, or both, to the jackpot. Progressive games are played on a different set of cards  than the books purchased for regular games.
