75-ball bingo is a fast-paced version of the game, played with a different type of ticket from 90-ball bingo, and with more ways to win. It’s super easy to pick up, especially if you’ve played any other type of bingo before. And with our guide and our clear explanation of the rules, you’ll soon be playing and winning.
How to Play 75-Ball Bingo
If you’ve ever played 90-ball bingo or 80-ball bingo, you’ll quickly feel at home with 75-ball bingo.
Whilst 75-ball bingo rules are a little different, you’re still playing bingo. Join a 75-ball bingo room online at Mecca Bingo, buy your bingo tickets, and when the game begins, numbers from 1 to 75 will be drawn at random. If you have any of those numbers on your tickets, they’ll be automatically marked off.
Just as with 80-ball bingo and 90-ball bingo, you compete with the other players in your room to win the prizes on offer. You’ll win those prizes by completing lines of numbers on your ticket, by getting a “full house” or by completing a predetermined pattern of marked numbers. You can play for free, or you can play to win real money.
Rules of 75-Ball Bingo
75-ball bingo rules are simple, meaning 75-ball bingo is a fast game to pick up
Pick a 75-ball bingo room to join online at Mecca Bingo, then buy your tickets. Each ticket has 24 numbers on it, organised into a 5 by 5 grid of squares (with one square left blank). A strip is a group of 3 tickets together. A strip will have no repeated numbers, with nearly every possible number from 1 through to 75 appearing on each.
As the game begins, numbers will be called by a bingo caller, and will be automatically marked off on your tickets if you have them.
How to Win 75-Ball Bingo
There are multiple ways to win with 75-ball bingo, and you’ll find it’s often called “pattern bingo” for good reason.
As with 80-ball and 90-ball bingo, in 75-ball bingo you’re competing to win prizes against the other players in the bingo room. Whilst you can play bingo for free at Mecca Bingo, if you play 75-ball bingo for money you’ll have the chance to win real money prizes.
Three different types of prizes are usually offered in our 75-ball bingo rooms:
- Complete a line – the first prize on offer goes to the first player to complete a line of 5 marked numbers across a ticket, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
- Complete a pattern – you can also win in 75-ball bingo by being the first player to complete specific patterns of marked numbers across your ticket that are announced before the game begins.
- Complete a full ticket – as with 90-ball and 80-ball bingo, you’ll win the top prize on offer if you’re the first player to mark off every number on a ticket, winning with a “full house”.
Payouts and Jackpots
Play 75-ball bingo for money with Mecca Bingo and win cash prizes.
There are three ways to win with 75-ball bingo; you can complete lines of five numbers across a bingo ticket, you can complete patterns of numbers specified before each game begins, or you can win a “full house” by completing all 24 numbers on your ticket.
The exact payouts and jackpots will vary by 75-ball bingo game and room, but you’ll see higher prizes on offer in the rooms with more expensive tickets. The more people playing in that room, and the more tickets bought, the higher the jackpot too.
The 75-Ball Bingo Game Ticket
As with other versions of bingo, you’ll find that 75-ball bingo has its own unique bingo ticket. Fear not, it’s a simple ticket to understand.
Each 75-ball bingo ticket is divided into a 5 by 5 grid of squares, with five columns and five rows. 24 of the 25 squares have numbers on them, whilst the central square is left blank. If this central square appears in any of your lines of marked numbers, it counts as having been marked off.
Across the top of a 75-ball bingo ticket, you’ll see the word BINGO, with each letter above each of the five columns. Each column has 5 random numbers in it, from the following sequence:
- B – numbers 1 to 15
- I – numbers 16 to 30
- N – numbers 31 to 45
- G – numbers 46 to 60
- O – numbers 61 to 75
In our Mecca Bingo 75-ball bingo rooms, you select your bingo tickets before the next game begins. You can pick multiple tickets or strips, to boost your chances of winning. Either pick your bingo tickets yourself, or click to have them chosen for you automatically.
Whilst you can play bingo for free online with Mecca Bingo, if you play for money, you can win real cash prizes.
You’ll buy your bingo tickets before each game of 75-ball bingo begins. Choose a room with the ticket prices you want to pay, then pick the number of bingo tickets you want to play with. Each bingo room will have a maximum amount you can buy, and that will vary from game to game.
