75-ball bingo is the dominant form of bingo played in Canada & North America and is a variation of the 90-ball bingo variety. Players opt into a 75-ball bingo game by purchasing numbered cards. A caller calls out numbers randomly, and if they appear on a player’s card, the player covers them or ‘daubs’ them. The first player to complete a pre-determined pattern on their card with covered numbers wins the game.
The cards sold at 75-ball bingo games get formatted with a 5×5 chart of numbers. Each spot on the chart presents a number, apart from the centre square, labelled “FREE”.
In 75-ball bingo, the variety of winning patterns is endless.
In most cases, the size of a game’s payout is determined by the cost per card and the number of players who opted into the game. The higher the card price and the more players that join a game will cause the prize to be larger. Occasionally, we offer a fixed minimum prize regardless of the number of players who participate and the cards’ price. Extra jackpots can also be on offer in a select number of bingo games.

Manual Selection of Cards
You can choose one card at a time by clicking on each of the cards you want to purchase.

However, the cards you already chose will remain.

If having the computer choose your cards for you sounds appealing, you can use the “Auto Select Cards” box to specify the number of cards you wish to purchase.

After you purchase cards for a bingo game, the next step is to wait for the game to begin. You can keep track of the time left until the game starts by checking the “Game Starts” countdown, which appears in the top left corner of the bingo screen.
New bingo games begin every few minutes, so the wait is never long. Once the game starts, all the details you need to play will appear in an info bar on top of your cards. For example, you’ll see the number of players playing the game, the jackpot prizes and the pattern you need to get to win.
Each number that gets called during the game appears at the top. Underneath or beside it, you’ll find the last five calls that came before it so that you can keep track.
Our bingo room lets you decide whether you want to daub your bingo card manually with your mouse or have the system daub your cards for you, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting a number. The default selection is the automatic method, but if you prefer to daub manually, you can change the options menu settings by removing the checkmark beside “Autodaub”. You can open your settings from the top left-hand corner of the bingo screen.
IMPORTANT: It doesn’t matter if you manually daub the numbers or if you select auto-daub to have it done for you. It does not affect the outcome of the game. If you own a bingo card with a win, the prize is yours no matter what! You always have the option of turning Autodaub back on whenever you like.
If a player gets a winning pattern on their bingo card, the game will stop for a short period to display a message informing you of who won the game and how much they collected.
The average theoretical return to a player in a Bingo 75-ball game is equal to 70%. In comparison, the house edge is equal to 30% (the game RTP standard deviation is affected by cards price and number of cards purchased in each game).
