Bingo 90 - Now we know why someone called us 88 the other day!
What are 90-Ball Bingo Games?
A 90-ball bingo game contains the numbers one through to 90. In most cases, 90-ball bingo is played on a single strip that features a combination of six tickets to be used for each round of gameplay. The 90 numbers are spread across all six tickets, with each number only able to be called out once per game.
How do 90-Ball bingo games work?
When you buy a ticket for 90 number bingo, you will receive six tickets on one strip. Each ticket comprises 27 squares, with 15 numbers on every ticket, ensuring you have 90 numbers displayed across the entirety of your strip.
Players may purchase a maximum of six strips for any game of 90-ball bingo online, giving you a chance to have every number in play up to six times.
How many numbers do you need for 90-Ball bingo?
There are three ways to win when you play bingo live 90-ball games:
1 line – when all five numbers displayed on a line are called
2 lines – when all ten numbers displayed on two lines of a ticket are called
House – when all 15 numbers displayed on a ticket a called
How many rows are there in a 90-Ball bingo game?
A standard 90-ball bingo ticket features three rows of nine squares, five of which will have designated numbers and the remaining four will be left blank. On an entire 90 number bingo strip, this means there are 18 active rows to keep an eye on – and 108 if you opt to buy the maximum six strips for a single game!
How many columns are there in a 90-Ball bingo game?
Within a typical 90-ball bingo ticket, you’ll find nine columns of three squares, all of which will have at least one designated number for the active game, with the others left blank. Over an entire 90 number bingo strip, this means there are 54 columns to keep an eye on – and 324 if you choose to buy the maximum six strips for a single game!
What is a strip in 90-Ball bingo games?
When you play a 90 number bingo game online, a strip contains a collection of six separate tickets. All numbers from one to 90 will be displayed on each full strip, with 15 numbers displayed at random on each ticket. It is normally possible to buy up to six strips per game, should you wish to increase your chances of landing a winning strip.
Why does bingo only go to 90?
Good question. If the number of active numbers in a game of bingo went far beyond 90, we would be waiting a long time to land a line, two lines or a house!
It’s not clear why 90 was historically chosen as the active number of squares on a bingo strip.
This game is certified by the UK Gambling Commission as having been independently tested and up to the required standards for players in the UK. If you experience any difficulties with this game or any other game you should follow our Complaints procedure and contact us.

In almost all instances, 90-ball bingo is played on a single strip that contains a total of six tickets to be used per round. The 90 numbers used in the game are spread throughout the six tickets (with blank spots taking up the remaining positions), so that each number is represented somewhere on one of the six tickets.
How to Play
The numbers 1 through 90 are used in a standard 90-ball bingo game. In a live hall, a bingo caller will call each number one at a time until the winning cards are identified. The same goes for an online game, though the computer software will select the balls. During a game, each number will only be called out once.
When a number is called, locate it on your card and use your dabber to mark it. In an online game, you’ll likely have the option to have the computer auto-dab your numbers for you, or you can do it manually. Some players like to dab their own tickets when playing online because it creates more of an interactive feeling, but the choice is completely up to you.
How to Win At Bingo
What’s most unique about 90-ball bingo is that for every round there can be up to three different winners. You can win by getting a one-line bingo, a two-line bingo and a full house bingo. Here is how each winning variation breaks down:
One-Line Bingo :- Cover all of the numbers on any single row on any ticket.
Two-Line Bingo :- Cover all the numbers on two of the three rows on any ticket.
Full House :- Cover all the numbers on all three rows on any ticket.
If you are playing in a live hall, you will have to shout “BINGO” to signal to the bingo staff that you have a winning bingo combination.
After all three winning combinations have been announced, the round ends and you can then discard your used ticket strip and prepare to start the next round with a fresh strip. In an online game this will be done for you.
The amount you can win is typically determined by how much the price of each ticket was and also by how many players are participating. The higher the price of a ticket and the more players that are involved in the game, the higher the prize money will be. Many halls and online providers will have guarantees attached to some of their games, which ensures that a designated minimum amount of prize money will be offered to the winners regardless of how many players are in the game.
A bet is placed only when it has been received by our server from your handset using our software. Once a bet has been placed it is final and binding and cannot be cancelled or changed. For the avoidance of doubt, a bet remains valid even if the result cannot for any reason be displayed back to your handset (due, for example, to a network failure, interruption of communication, or if you receive a phone call). In the event of a game termination, any relevant jackpot will be paid out on a random draw authorised by the regulator.
The theoretical average return to player (RTP) is up to 90-99%. This RTP represents the long-term expected payback of the game which has been calculated by an independent testing company and monitored monthly.
