What is 75 Ball and 90 Ball Bingo?

Not all bingo games are created equal or, more accurately, follow the same exact rules. This is because variety can sometimes make a game more intriguing and different people will have different tastes. As such, different variants of bingo have emerged and two of the most popular are 75 ball and 90 ball bingo. So, let's take a look at these two very engaging variants of an old classic game.

First, let's look at the similarities between these two games. The object of both games is to complete a straight, vertical line or horizontal line based on the "called" letters and numbers. This is a universal end goal that defines the objectives of bingo.

The difference, however, between the 75 ball version and the 95 ball version is the size of the bingo cards. The 75 ball version uses a 5 x 5 card whereas the 95 ball version uses a 9 x 3 card. While this may seem like a minor difference the difference is actually significant. This is because the patterns become radically different making the end result different to achieve. One who is accustomed to one game may find the other more difficult or even easier. One will, however, note they are different from one another.

The popularity of these games was once based on geography. That is, each game was more popular in certain regions of the world than others. Today, thanks to the emergence of online bingo one can select which game he or she prefers to play regardless of geography.
