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.
75-ball bingo uses a 5 by 5 square virtual card, which contains random numbers between 1 and 75. Players win by completing an entire horizontal, vertical or diagonal line, or a special pattern. These patterns will be displayed above the bingo card.
UK style 90-ball bingo cards have 3 horizontal rows and 9 vertical columns adding up to a total of 27 numbers. Players have 3 chances to win. The first winner is the first to complete any 1 line, the second, any 2nd line, and the winner to get a 'Full House' is the player who covers all 27 numbers.
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.
What is an auto-daub?
This very useful feature automatically marks off the numbers on your bingo ticket as they are called. You can just sit back, relax and win!
Chat Games are played in the Chat Rooms while the bingo draw is happening. Players can win Bingo Coins and have the opportunity to make friends and take part in our online bingo community.

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.
If you've requested a withdrawal of your funds but still fancy playing during the first 48 hours, you can reverse your withdrawal request. Head to the Cashier (either from the header in the lobby or on the site, or from the My Account page) and click on "Reverse Withdrawal" to see the Banking pop-up box. Click 'Reverse' and select any uncompleted withdrawal request and hit "Submit." This will automatically send your requested money back into your bingo account so you can continue playing!

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 Gossip Bingo.
Casino games are currently not available. We apologize for any inconvenience. Stay tuned for any updates.
