There are several variations of free online bingo games that are played worldwide. 90-ball bingo is popular in Europe and South America whereas the US and North America favour 75-ball bingo more. The basic difference between these two types lies in the quantity of numbers arranged on the cards and the manner in which they’re placed. In the 75-ball bingo the numbers displayed on the balls range from one to seventy five. It’s more interesting in terms of bingo patterns as there’s a wide range of them. They can range from festive occasion patterns to more interesting ones like diamond, cruise ships, smiling face and other patterns.
The 90-ball variation of free online bingo games is played on cards with fifteen numbers picked up between one and ninety. It also includes traditional bingo patterns, such as three rows, four corners and a full house. There are some other bingo game variations like the 80-ball or 30-ball bingo. They are quite popular in Scandinavian countries. The 30-ball bingo is also called speed bingo because it’s the shortest version of bingo. It’s played on cards featuring three rows and three columns with nine numbers displayed on them.
The rules of playing free online bingo games are very easy. Players are given bingo cards with numbers on them which are drawn at random until one player completes a bingo pattern on one of their cards and wins the prize. When playing bingo online you may have the option of your cards being dabbed for you automatically or you can attempt to keep up yourself. However, playing with multiple cards at once can be very tough so choosing this option can bring you a number of benefits. Every online bingo game has a caller or a display board for the called bingo numbers. Thus, you can see what bingo numbers are called and track your progress.
In brief, free online bingo games are available in all different shapes and sizes, and regardless of the type of the free online bingo game you play, you can be sure that you don’t have to pay a penny to enjoy your favourite game.
