The 80-ball game could be seen as having been less popular than the 75 and 90-ball games but with sites such as Gala , The Sun and Jackpotjoy supporting this alternative you're more likely than ever to come across it.
Stating the obvious, the 80-ball bingo game sits nicely in between the two other versions but is played on a four by four card. When playing 80-ball bingo there are new ways to win such as the four corners game. With extra numbers available there are also new patterns to bingo on depending on what site you play with.
Each of the above sites supports a different way to play and has different terminology for 80 ball games, but don't let this deter you. Whether you play on just one site or across a few, the 80-ball experience is unlike those more commonly played and so is well worth learning a few simple pointers.
For example, when playing on the Gala site, every grid is called a ticket. Tickets for these 80-ball games appear in four rows with a colour for each and can be bought separately. Playing at the online Gala site means you can take part in their Cash Climber game where you will hit the Bonus Jackpot if you bingo in 31 balls or less. Gala also support a Bonus Line game which means if you win the one game and your line coincides with the Bonus Line you win money from both pots!
The SunOn the Sun bingo site you can buy and play with boards for any of the 80-ball game for only 25p and the maximum boards you can buy in any one game is four. To hit the jackpot on the Sun bingo site you need only bingo within 45 numbers. Giving you more chances to win you may only have a few boards but the game is spread out over a larger number of balls so your chances of winning increase.
These are just a few examples of the game currently available but as more and more online bingo sites choose to adopt this new bingo game variant we expect to see more choice of games and more importantly more winners at the Bingo Hideout forum.
