US Bingo is played in almost every city, in every state. While the game varies from the bingo that is played in Europe, the object of the game remains the same… have fun and win!
Many online Bingo websites offer US rules Bingo in addition to their 90 Ball games for added variation. This gives players the best of both worlds, and allows them to pick whichever game they are in the mood for.
75 Ball Bingo
As the name implies, 75 ball Bingo is played using numbers from 1 to 75.
The 75 ball game card has a 5×5 grid containing 25 of a possible 75 numbers. The grids have 5 rows, each starting with the letters of the word BINGO.
Bingo is won on patterns, which is a card with all the blocks filled. As soon as a player fills all the blocks in the pattern needed to win, the game is won.
Some examples of Bingo patterns in a 75 Ball game of Bingo include Bowties, Letters, Numbers, Squares, Boxes, Any Corner, Line Down, Line Across, Diagonal Line, Arrows and just about anything else you can imagine.
Playing US Bingo
Playing US Bingo is not as much of a big past-time as playing the UK version is in this country, but it is still found in nearly every state across America.
Online Bingo games are very popular, but games played in clubs are not as common as 90 Ball games played in halls and clubs across the UK.
In the US, the game is mainly played by churches or charity organisations. Some US bingo halls rent out their venues to organisations, but generally games are hosted in church halls on a weekly basis. Prizes for these bingo games are usually smaller, with a bigger prize for the final jackpot game played on the coverall pattern.
Players wanting to play for the big jackpots play at licensed casinos, which are legal in Nevada. Las Vegas boasts many bingo parlors and clubs, and many players organise bingo weekends to play and win big stake games.
Whether you like the fun game patterns or the variation, US Bingo offers a fun alternative to 90 Ball games.
