Types Of Bingo Games
Most bingo lovers know that there is more to the game than meets the eye. Bingo games are anything but boring – there are many different types of bingo games players can choose from. With online bingo becoming more and more popular, there are now even more types of bingo games than ever before.
In the United States the traditional bingo game is played with 75 balls, and in the United Kingdom it is played with 90 balls. The most common types of games are free games and pay-to-play games. At free bingo sites players can play for free, they do not have to deposit and they can win bonus money. At some free sites, players can even win real money! Pay-to-play bingo sites are also very popular because players can win huge amounts of money. To play pay-to-play bingo games, players have to deposit regularly to fund their accounts. Some sites offer both a free play and a pay-to-play version of their games.
The traditional, or regular, bingo game is probably the most common type of game. For this game, bingo cards have five horizontal rows and five vertical columns, which make a total of 25 numbers per card. In the traditional game, players have to match a line of five numbers, horizontal, vertical or diagonal, to win. The numbers are called by a person called the caller. Players have to mark off the number on their cards that corresponds with the number called.
The other widely used type of bingo game is the blackout pattern game. In this game players have to mark off all the numbers on their cards to win bingo.
Some of the more familiar bingo patterns are the x-pattern and the four corner pattern where players have to mark off the number in each corner of the card to win bingo. Other common bingo games are progressive and combination games. Speed bingo is also very popular. In this game numbers are read at a high speed and players have to mark their cards at an equally high speed.
Fortunately with the boom of the online bingo industry, many sites offer games with fun and interesting patterns. Some sites have bingo cards that match the game’s skins or room themes. Other fun card patterns are patterns that are unique to the promotions the site offers.
Not all types of bingo games are played in casinos or at websites. Besides the traditional numbered cards, there are many types of bingo games for kids. Some of the popular games for kids are maths and alphabet bingo. By playing these games, children experience learning as a fun activity.
Other types of bingo games are baby or bridal shower bingo. Usually players have to match all kinds of baby or bridal items to the words on their cards. These games are great icebreakers and lots of fun.
As online bingo become more popular, more types of games are being created. This will help increase the already high excitement in regards to the bingo game.
