What is bingo and how do I play?

In a nutshell, bingo is all about marking numbers on tickets as numbers are announced by a caller at random.

The winner is declared as the first player to mark all their numbers, usually after an exclamation of “BINGO!”. Of course, if you’re playing online with us, you’re not obliged to shout if you win but there’s no harm in it!

Bingo Rules and Instructions

To play, all you need are bingo tickets, markers or “daubers”, and a bankroll for the winnings to be collected and paid to the winner. Of course, all of this is automatic on our website, so no need for an actual ticket or “dauber” unless that’s your style! Bingo is classed as gambling and so you must be aged 18 or over.

Begin by purchasing your ticket(s). You can usually purchase more than one ticket but there will be a limit. Then, wait for your game to start and off you go! Often, there will be a countdown informing you when each game is due to begin.

Once the game begins, balls will be randomly drawn and their corresponding numbers called. If the called number matches a number on your ticket, the “autodaub” function will automatically mark your ticket. More details of our bingo rules can be found here.
