Bingo Variations

It doesn’t really take rocket science to learn bingo. Anyone with an average mind and swift reflexes can master bingo in just a matter of minutes. Just like lotto, bingo has a ball dispenser containing balls numbered from 1 to 75. The caller, then calls out the numbers one by one and display them on the call board. Players will be allotted a few seconds to locate the number on their cards. Each card contains a fixed number of randomly selected digits. The cards are available in a set of three, six or nine cards.

During a session of bingo, several bingo variations are played. Besides the regular patterns, bingo halls nowadays are devising a variety of new patterns to add more excitement to the game. In standard bingo games, whoever fills his/her card with a straight line either horizontally, diagonally or vertically, wins the game. Other regular games also play ‘four corners’ – a variation of bingo where you have to mark all the four numbers at the corners To be precise, you mark the top and bottom numbers in the row ‘B’ and row ‘O’.

The other most common bingo variations are:

1. Blood, Sweat and Tears: Fill your bingo card with three bingos. The corners are not included.
