75-Ball Game Help



Last Updated on the 07/07/2014

Overview

75-ball bingo is the dominant form of bingo played in North America and is a variation of the 90-ball bingo variety. Players opt in to a 75-ball bingo game by purchasing numbered cards. A caller calls out numbers randomly and if they appear on a player's card, the player covers them or 'daubs' them. The first player to complete a pre-determined pattern on his/her card with covered numbers wins the game.



75-Ball Cards

The cards sold at 75-ball bingo games are formatted with a 5x5 chart of numbers. Each spot on the chart presents a number, apart from the center square, which is labeled "FREE".


WINNING Pattern

In 75-ball bingo, the variety of winning patterns is endless.


Payouts and Jackpots

In most cases, the size of a game's payout is determined by the cost per card and the number of players who opted into the game. The higher the card price and the more players that join a game will cause the prize to be larger. Occasionally, we offer a fixed minimum prize regardless of the number of players that participate and the price of the cards. Extra jackpots can also be on offer in a select number of bingo games.

Game Options

Click on the Options button in the right corner of the screen to customize the bingo interface so that it matches your needs.


Simply choose the settings that appear in the center of the screen of your choice and click OK. You can go back into these settings and alter them at any point in time.

Settings Available:

Price alert: Lets you enable or disable the presentation of the card price within the bingo rooms.

Show 3TG: This stands for "Show 3 to go" and if you select it the bingo system will highlight your cards that only have 1, 2 or 3 numbers left to cover until you win.

Autodaub: If you select this setting, the system will cover the called numbers that appear on your card for you.


IMPORTANT: It doesn't matter if you manually daub the numbers or if you select autodaub to have it done for you. This does not affect the outcome of the game. If you own a bingo card with a win, the prize is yours no matter what!

If the cards displayed don't feel right to you, you can click on "Get New Cards" under the cost of the cards display. The current cards will disappear and be replaced with new ones. However, the cards you already chose will remain.

Automatic Selection of Cards

If having the computer choose your cards for you sounds appealing, then you can use the "Auto Select Cards" box to specify the number of cards you wish to purchase. The maximum number of cards you can purchase with Auto Select is 96. Once you have made your auto selection, you can click on any of the selected cards one at a time and remove them from the selection. Your auto selected cards total will appear underneath the auto select cards area.


Buying Cards

The perquisite for entering a bingo game is the purchase of at least 1 card.

The maximum number of cards you can purchase in a single game is 96. It is only possible to purchase cards after you have funded your bingo account with the right amount of funds. You'll always be able to view your account balance at the top of the bingo screen. To deposit into your account anytime, click the "Cashier/Banking".

The price per card is visible on the left hand side of the bingo screen on the top.


Playing the Game

After you purchase cards for a bingo game, the next step is to wait for the game to begin. You can keep track of the time left until the game starts by checking the "Game Starts" countdown, which appears in the top left corner of the bingo screen.

New bingo games begin every few minutes so the wait is never long. Once the game begins, all the details you need to play will appear in an info bar on top of your cards. For example, you'll see the number of players who are playing the game, the jackpot prizes and the pattern you need to get in order to win.

Each number that is called during the game appears in the top. [Underneath/ besides] it, you'll find the last five calls that came before it, so you can keep track.


Daubing Your Numbers

Our bingo room lets you decide whether you want to daub your own bingo card manually with your mouse or have the system daub your cards for you, so you don't have to worry about forgetting a number. The default selection is the automatic method, but if you prefer to daub manually, you can change the settings in the options menu by removing the checkmark beside "Autodaub". You can open your settings from the top left-hand corner of the bingo screen.



IMPORTANT: It doesn't matter if you manually daub the numbers or if you select autodaub to have it done for you. This does not affect the outcome of the game. If you own a bingo card with a win, the prize is yours no matter what!

You always have the option of turning Autodaub back on whenever you like.

Winning

If a player gets a winning pattern on their bingo card, the game will stop for a short period to display a message informing you of who won the game and how much they collected.
