The game of Bingo is based on drawing numbers. 90-Ball Bingo is a bingo game played
with 90 numbers that can be called - the numbers 1 to 90.
90-Ball Bingo Card and Tickets
A card should be purchased before the beginning of the game. A player's bingo
card contains all the numbers from 1 to 90, and it is divided to six tickets.
Each ticket is composed of 3 rows and 9 columns, and contains 15 numbers and
12 blank squares. In each row appear 5 numbers.
In 90-Ball Bingo there are three fixed patterns to be achieved by marking on
the card numbers that were drawn and called. The 3 winning pattern are: one
horizontal line, two horizontal lines, and three horizontal lines (also called
Full House). A prize is set for each pattern, and the game continues until someone
wins the Full House.
Course of the Game and Winning
As the game begins the numbers are drawn and called. The player check the card
for each number that was called, and if the number does appear in the card the
player marks it. This action is also called "to daub". Most bingo
sites offer "auto-daub" function that marks the ticket automatically.
The three players whose tickets are daubed according to the 3 winning pattern
are the winners.
