Currently, there are two types of bingo games; point bingo and straight bingo. Both the games have similar rules, but with a bit of variation. The bingo card comprises of five columns and five rows. Numbers from 1-75 are printed randomly on these cards and the middle section is left blank.
The main purpose of this game is to formulate the prearranged number patterns. It can be a column pattern, a row pattern or a diagonal pattern. The numbers on bingo cards are required to be covered, as shown on the screen. A master or a caller of the game is chosen to call out the numbers. In an online bingo game, each player will get a digital bingo card which will have numbers on it.
When the numbers are called out, these numbers will be displayed on the screen and if the number matches with the one on your card, you will need to mark it. The game continues until a player completes the pattern. If you complete a particular pattern, you just need to hit the bingo button on your computer screen. In order to make sure you are the winner, you need to hit the bingo button as soon as you complete the required pattern without delay.
