Variety is the spice of life, and all the best online bingo rooms (like Giggle Bingo!) offer you a sensational variety of bingo games to keep you entertained.

Of course, if you’re relatively new to playing bingo from your computer, a guide to all the different kinds of bingo games online can be mightily helpful when choosing a real money game to play. Well, read on as we break down the most popular bingo game types and how to win on each one!

30 Ball Bingo

30 ball bingo is often affectionately called ‘speed bingo’. This is a fast-paced game perfect for those who love dynamic action, as each ticket in 30 ball bingo only has 9 squares. Winning this kind of bingo game usually requires a full house, but many providers also offer additional winning patterns, like 3-stage patterns.

Along with 90 ball bingo, this is a great online bingo variant for beginners!

75 Ball Bingo

75 ball bingo is also referred to as ‘pattern bingo’ because of the multiple patterns you can reveal to win. This type of bingo offers you a choice of numbers between 1 and 75, and uses a card with a 5×5 square grid and 24 numbers, with a blank centre block.

Each of the columns in these games tend to be topped with each letter in the word ‘bingo’, which makes your winning numbers so much easier to track down!

90 Ball Bingo

In 90 ball bingo, you’ll receive a ticket made up of 9 columns and just 3 rows. There are 3 prizes to be won here – a 1-line, 2-line or full house jackpot. The full house jackpot is awarded if you can mark off every single number on your ticket and, as is to be expected, the prize on offer is generally huge!

If you’re an online bingo newbie, 90 ball bingo is a great place to start. It only has 3 winning patterns, which makes it easy to play and to enjoy.
