What is online bingo?

Bingo is a classic numbers game you can play in different parts of the world. This game traces its history to 16th century Italy, which soon spread to France, Great Britain, and the rest of the world. In the United Kingdom, the game was previously called 'Housey-Housey' and became a household name thanks to the Betting and Gaming Act of 1960.

The game's popularity lies in the simplicity of its rules and the social element that comes into play. Bingo works like a lotto but can assume a multi-player format. In bingo, players buy tickets with a random combination of numbered squares. There are numbered balls, too, that are drawn in each round. If a ball matches a number on the ticket, the player marks it. And if a particular pattern is matched, the player calls it out and wins!

Today, bingo is playable in online and mobile formats, thanks to online casinos. In online bingo, you'll find virtual bingo tickets automatically marked when matched numbers are matched. In addition, winning patterns are automatically indicated, making online bingo games more fun and convenient. There are different online bingo variants, too, that make this game truly entertaining for all types of players.

What is Slingo?

One exciting bingo variant in top casinos is Slingo. This popular casino game blends the features of slot machines and bingo. In this game, the player gets 20 turns to 'spin' the numbers below the bingo card. Five random numbers will appear, and if these are present on the card, these are marked off.

A popular version of Slingo is Monopoly Slingo, a game designed in collaboration with Scientific Games. Here, the classic Monopoly game gets an exciting twist in a Slingo format. The player rolls the dice to move around the board, collect properties, and wins cash prizes.

From here, you'll need to buy your virtual tickets by clicking on them or clicking the 'Quick Pick' for a random set of tickets. Choosing which online bingo variant and the number of tickets to play is a critical decision you need to consider.

The casino's bingo software makes the process more manageable when you play bingo online. All you have to do is start the game, and the software completes the job for you- from checking the numbers and marking them off on the virtual cards. Players will see which numbers are called and how close they match a winning pattern. Once a winning pattern is hit, the software highlights this and informs the players.

How many numbers are called in bingo?

Bingo online games vary on the numbers called in each round. For example, in 75-ball bingo, there are 75 balls randomly drawn in each round. If one player earns a winning combination, he gets a payout, and the drawing of bingo balls will stop. The same procedure follows in another popular variant, the 90-ball bingo. In this variant, the software will draw up to 90 balls or until a player gets a winning pattern.
