Each ticket is comprises of five columns with five rows, modulated with random numbers beginning from 1 to 75, as the name itself suggests. The middle square on each ticket is mostly marked with a star and is known rather famously as the ‘free square’. The letters B-I-N-G-O are typically perched atop your 75 ball bingo card and they correspond with each of the five columns of the card. Random numbers are assigned on the column vertically under each letter. For example, five numbers between 1 to 15 are assigned under Column B, numbers between 15 to 30 under Column I, between 31 to 45 under Column N, between 46 to 60 under Column G and between 61 to 75 under Column O. The dealer calls them out as a combination, e.g., “B9” or “N40” or “O73”.
The 75-Ball Bingo has accomplished brill popularity due to its interesting patterns. Since the patterned card makes use of a five by five grid and with the word B-I-N-G-O appearing atop, it’s relatively simple to create patterns on this grid. These patterns range from seasonal patterns such as Christmas trees, to Easter bunnies at Easter time; making this an ace family game for the festive season.
