New to Bingo?

Playing online bingo

There are two types of bingo games: UK style with 90 balls and American style with 75 balls. Both types are equally fun to play. Once you've selected which type of game you'd like to play, simply buy some bingo cards! Prices start from 1p per card. A message will appear on the screen to let you know when a game is about to begin. Good luck!

If you've bought more than 6 cards, you can scroll between them by clicking the left and right arrow buttons to view your cards throughout the game. You don't have to worry about watching your numbers too much though because our special auto daub feature means you don't have to mark off your numbers as they're called.

90-ball Bingo


The most famous version of bingo is 90-ball bingo. Players opt-in to a 90-ball bingo game by buying numbered bingo tickets. A caller calls out numbers randomly and if they appear on a player's ticket, the player covers them or 'daubs' them. The 1st place winner is the player that covers any 1 line pattern, the 2nd place winner covers any 2 line pattern and the Full House winner covers all 3 lines on the ticket.

Wining Patterns

When it comes to 90-ball bingo games, there are 3 successive patterns that can bring you a win and each pattern has its own prize.

In some cases, players can collect all 3 of the prizes during one game if they are the first to achieve all 3 patterns. 


Any line   Any line   Any line


Any two lines   Any two lines   Any two lines

Payouts and Jackpots

In most cases, the size of a game's payout is determined by the cost per ticket and the number of players who opted into the game. The higher the ticket price and the more players that join a game will cause the prize to be larger. Occasionally, we offer a fixed minimum prize regardless of the number of players that participate and the price of the tickets. Extra jackpot can also be on offer in a select number of bingo games.

Players can find all the details about a game's jackpot in the info bar located on top of the ticket strips, ahead of a game and throughout the game.

Game Options

Click on the Options button in the right corner of the screen to customize the bingo interface so that it matches your needs.

game options

Simply choose the settings that appear in the center of the screen of your choice and click OK. You can go back into these settings and alter them at any point in time.

Settings Available:

Price alert: Lets you enable or disable the presentation of the card price within the bingo rooms. 

Show 3TG: This stands for "Show 3 to go" and if you select it the bingo system will highlight your tickets that only have 1, 2 or 3 numbers left to cover until you win. 

Autodaub: If you select this setting, the system will cover the called numbers that appear on your card for you. 

IMPORTANT: It doesn’t matter if you manually daub the numbers or if you select autodaub to have it done for you. This does not affect the outcome of the game. If you own a bingo card with a win, the prize is yours no matter what!

Best Card First: Displays your card that is nearest to winning on the screen in the top left corner.

Tickets Selection

You may choose the strips and tickets that you want to bingo with by clicking on each one or you can have the bingo system select them for you arbitrarily.

Manual Selection of Tickets

You can choose one ticket or strip at a time by clicking on each one you want to purchase. Alternatively, you can use "Click to Select Strip" to choose an entire strip. If a strip displayed doesn't feel right to you, you can click on "Get New Strip". The current strip will disappear and be replaced with a new one. However, the tickets in the current strip that you already chose will remain. To alternate between the 4 strips available, you can click on the red button in the centre with the arrow.

Selecting you tickets - Automatically

If having the bingo system choose your tickets for you sounds appealing, then you can just click on the amount of strips you'd like to purchase in the "Auto Select Strips" box. Once you have made your auto selection, you can click on any of the tickets one at a time and remove them from the strips. Your auto selected tickets total will appear underneath the auto select strips area.

Buying Tickets

The perquisite for entering a bingo game is the purchase of at least 1 ticket.

The maximum number of tickets you can purchase in a single game is 96 (16 strips). It is only possible to purchase tickets after you have funded your bingo account with the right amount of funds. You'll always be able to view your account balance at the top of the bingo screen. To deposit into your account anytime, click the "Cashier/Banking".

The price per ticket is visible on the left hand side of the bingo screen on the top/Card itself and on the purchase panel.

Playing the Game

After you purchase tickets for a bingo game, the next step is to wait for the game to begin. You can keep track of the time left until the game starts by checking the "Game Starts" countdown., which appears in the top left corner of the bingo screen.

Ticket Cost

New bingo games begin every few minutes so the wait is never long. Once the game begins, all the details you need to play will appear in an info bar on top of your tickets. For example, you'll see the number of players who are playing the game, the available prizes for the patterns (1 line, 2 lines and Full House) and the jackpot prizes. 

Bingo Jackpots

As the game is being played, the prize winners are displayed and the ticket symbol on the above right switches to show the next winning pattern in line.

Each number that is called during the game appears in the top left-hand corner inside a bingo ball. Underneath/Besides it, you'll find the last five calls that came before it, so you can keep track.

Daubing Your Numbers

Our bingo room lets you decide whether you want to daub your own bingo tickets manually with your mouse or have the system daub your tickets for you, so you don't have to worry about forgetting a number. The default selection is the automatic method, but if you prefer to daub manually, you can change the settings in the options menu by removing the checkmark beside "Autodaub". You can open your settings from the top left-hand corner of the bingo screen.

IMPORTANT: It doesn’t matter if you manually daub the numbers or if you select autodaub to have it done for you. This does not affect the outcome of the game. If you own a bingo card with a win, the prize is yours no matter what!

You always have the option of turning Autodaub back on whenever you like.


winning message 90 ball

The average theoretical return to player in Bingo 90-ball game is equal to 70% while the house edge is equal to 30% (the game RTP standard deviation is affected by ticket price and number of tickets purchased in each game).


We understand that sometimes internet connections can be lost and that you might get disconnected whilst playing a game. If this happens, the system will continue to autodaub for you and you'll be awarded any prizes you may have won during your short time away. 

What is a max buy?

Max buy refers to the maximum amount of cards you can buy for any single bingo game. You have the option in both 75-ball and 90-ball bingo games to click the Max button or to individually click on the cards to select how many you want to purchase.

Game Issues

I can't open Games or Banking

When entering the Game Lobby, some of the games and banking features open in a pop up window, so if you encounter problems viewing them, it might be because your computer is blocking pop-up windows.

Simply check that your internet browser is not blocking pop-ups.

How? Click 'Tools' in your browser, and then turn OFF the Pop-Up Blocker. Or click on the 'Pop-up Blocked' message on top of your screen and choose 'Always allow pop-ups from this site.'

What happens if I have purchased my cards and then get disconnected from the game?

As soon as your cards are purchased, you are in the game regardless of your connection status. The game outcome is generated at our servers and if one of the cards you have purchased is a winner, then you will still win. If you get disconnected for any reason and you have purchased cards, then check your Transactions History in your My Account page to see if you have won.

Why can I not connect to the chat server?

Our chat servers may be down from time to time, but this does not happen frequently. Often, if your computer is behind a firewall, the firewall will not allow our chat servers to send messages to you. Firewalls vary on different computers but basically what you need to do is add us to your White List.

Can I keep my card numbers from game to game?

Unfortunately not. In keeping things fair, all cards are randomly generated at the time you request them. If you do not like the numbers of your issued cards, you can simply click the GET NEW CARDS button to receive a new batch.

Fair Play

How do I know the bingo games are fair?

To assure the integrity of our games, a Random Number Generator (RNG) is always used to ensure consistently random results. Whether it's the bingo ball selection, a roll of a dice, a hand of cards, or a spin of the wheel, in each event a Random Number Generator (RNG) is utilized to ensure that the outcome is truly random. The system has been rigorously tested by running millions of rounds and examining their results. The system is also systematically tested by Sugar Bingo.
