90 Ball Bingo is a game traditionally played in the United Kingdom, Australia and other countries of the Commonwealth. The game is similar to the American 75 Ball Bingo, where the cards include a pattern. Players just try to be the first ones to complete the winning pattern.
In 90 Ball Bingo, cards have three rows and nine columns. Five squares in each row contain numbers ranging from 1 to 90, while the rest are blank.
Players buy strips of tickets at the beginning of each game. The maximum number of tickets you can buy is 48. Unlike 75 ball Bingo, the 90 ball game is played with only 3 patterns. Each of the 3 patterns has a prize associated with it. The patterns are called One Line (first part), Two Lines (second part), and Full House. Random numbers from 1 to 90 are called on the Bingo Call board. The first player to correctly cross off a horizontal line, then Two Lines, and finally all of the numbers on a ticket (Full House), wins the prize for that pattern. The prizes increase in value. Where the One Line prize will buy you a few extra tickets, winning the Full House prize most likely means a profit for the night!
A strip is a set of 6 tickets containing all 90 numbers, distributed throughout in a Dab-All format. When a strip of six tickets is played in one bingo game, every possible number from 1-90 is covered and therefore, a number is crossed off at each bingo call.
