Terminology Mythology!

There are numerous terminologies used in the bingo rooms to point at certain bingo elements. It’s a fact; those who don’t know about these specific words might get confused or not fully enjoy bingo. Let’s begin with the most common ones – the bingo games!

75-Ball Bingo: This is a variation of bingo where 75 balls are used. The bingo card is a 5x5 grid filled with numbers and a Free Grid in the middle. The game is considered complete when the player fills all the numbered grids, also known as a blackout.

90-ball Bingo: The most popular variation around the UK, this genre of bingo is played with 90 balls. The bingo cards have 3 rows of 9 squares. Each row will have a maximum of 5 numbers that are randomly generated.

5-line Bingo: This variation is also known as Swedish Bingo. It is quite similar to 75-Ball bingo with only one thing in difference. There is no Free Grid.

The structure and basic elements of a bingo game also have some specific terminologies that one should know. Most of the time, you will come across these elements during a bingo session.

Chat Master (CM): A person in charge of entertaining and interacting through the chat section. Exclusively on online bingos.

Pattern: The required layout of the correct numbers to win.

Jackpot: An extra prize offered when you obtain a required pattern with a set of bingo balls.

Progressive Jackpot: A jackpot that grows during gameplay based on the people that play. Awarded when a specific pattern is achieved using a small number of numbers.
