Swedish Bingo, as the name suggests, is the Swedish version of the 90 ball game we play in the UK, and the 75 ball game played in the US.
Here’s what you need to know about the Swedish version of Bingo:

Variant Bingo Games
Variant Bingo games are similar to the 75 ball US-rules game, as they are also played using 75 balls, but there are few differences.
Here is some more information on the Variant game and how it is played:
- The Variant Bingo number board has 75 numbers, but no letters. The board is laid out in the same way as the classic US Bingo board, in rows.
- The cards are laid out in 5 x 5 grids, all of which contain random numbers from 1 to 75. The middle square is left free.
- There are 5 jackpots to be won on each game – 1 Line, 2 Line, 3 Line, 4 Line and 5 Line or Full House. Lines 1 to 4 have the same prize value, and the Full House prize is the big jackpot.
- There are a few basic patterns to win the line jackpots, which are Line Across, Line Down, Diagonal Down and Four Corners.
- If you have had a line win, you are not eligible to win the Full House win, as each line is counted as a separate jackpot.
- Variant Bingo is starting to be seen at more and more sites, which make it more accessible for players of all nationalities to play the games.
Swedish Bingo Players
Swedish Bingo players have a similar profile as UK players, and many of them are female in the 25 to 70 age gap, with the biggest age group in the 40-50 year group.
Smoking is not such a huge issue in Sweden as Bingo halls are not as common as they are in England or Scotland, and online Bingo is much more popular than land based games.
Aside from Bingo, Swedish Bingo players also enjoy chatting in the chat rooms, and these chat rooms can get really lively during peak hours, which make the room a lot of fun.
