90 ball bingo is the type most commonly played in the UK and Europe. This is the type you typically find in your local bingo hall and is also very common on online bingo sites. This is now one of the most popular games on the internet, with pre-purchasing and auto-daubing giving even the busiest people the ability to squeeze in their favourite bingo game.
75-ball bingo was originally popular in the US and Canada but with the rising popularity of online gaming, 75 ball bingo has now become popular in the UK and Europe. 75 ball bingo is very easy to play with simple rules and changing patterns to keep the game fresh. Players can also pre-purchase their bingo tickets which will automatically be played if the player isn’t online to play themselves. So you can play bingo even while you’re down the shops!
High 5 Bingo is a type of bingo game created by chain Gala Bingo in 2008 after they withdrew from the ‘National Bingo Game’. The game is played across all their bingo halls and often with linked, progressive prizes. The first person nationally to win would win a special jackpot and there were special prizes given for things like calling house on any number ending in 5, with prizes of up to £25,000.
Unfortunately, this game actually ended in 2011 and now Gala Casino operate an online bingo site, they have stuck with traditional 75, 80 and 90 ball games.
