Bingo is extremely popular! Not only in UK but worldwide with millions of players. Bingo players are of all ages. So, don't think only seniors do play these games. It is true that many more women than men play bingo.
What makes bingo so exciting is that you have 3 odds for the same cash in each round. This is because there are 3 levels of winning:
• One line in a horizontal row;
• Two lines in a horizontal row and
• A 'full house', which means all numbers = BINGO!
In UK bingo is played with 90 balls. A bingo card is called 'a ticket'. UK tickets are arranged in 3 (horizontal) rows and 9 columns. Each row contains 5 boxes with a number and blanc boxes. In total you have 3 rows x 9 columns = 27 boxes on a ticket. 15 boxes with a number and 12 boxes are always left 'blank'.
