Bingo is a really simple game – just match the drawn numbers to those on your bingo card and, if you match them quickly enough, you’ll win a prize! But how many numbers will you need to match in order to win a prize when playing bingo? Well, this depends on the type of bingo you’re playing, and we’ve covered all the popular ones below, so keep on reading!
How to Win at Bingo
Before we look at how many numbers you’ll need to win, let’s first quickly look at what you need to do to win a prize. On this page, we’ll look at three main bingo variations: 75-ball, 80-ball and 90-ball bingo. The good thing is that all three of these bingo variations have the same basic rules, so you won’t need to learn how to play three completely different games.
In general, there are multiple prizes offered in every game of bingo. Firstly, there are usually prizes for getting predefined patterns of numbers, which can be as simple as just a row. The main prize will then be awarded to the player who manages to mark off all the numbers on their bingo card.
How Many Numbers Are Needed to Win?
As already stated, there are three types of bingo we’ll look at, all of which require a different amount of numbers in order to win.
The first is 75-ball bingo, and on a 75-ball bingo card there are a total of 24 numbers. This means that a player will need to get 24 numbers in order to get a full house. You’ll need to get 16 numbers in 80-ball bingo, while 90-ball bingo requires you to match 27 numbers.
There are some other versions of bingo out there too, and these have their own rules. We’d urge you to check these rules before you start playing.
How Many Numbers Are Needed to Win the Jackpot?
In the world of bingo, the biggest prizes are won when you manage to hit the jackpot. A jackpot can be a fixed amount, or it can be progressive, meaning that it gets larger as more and more people play the game. Here at NewBingoSites.org.uk – we list the best new sites that have big jackpot games.
But how many numbers do you need to collect to win a jackpot? Well, it is usually the case that you’ll have to get all of them. The difference between collecting them all and winning the jackpot and collecting them all and just winning the full house prize is the speed in which the numbers are collected. The jackpot is usually given to those who collect all their numbers in a set number of turns or fewer. For example, you might have to get a full house within 40 turns in order to win a game’s jackpot.
