Studio1 Bingo

As per the bingo games played in clubs, players must purchase tickets to play the game. However players must have registered an account before being able to purchase their tickets. 90 ball bingo tickets have an individual grid of 27 squares made up of 3 rows and 9 columns. Each row contains 5 numbers and 4 blank squares; 15 numbers appear on every ticket.

In a game of 90 ball bingo, a strip is a group of 6 tickets; every possible number from 1 through to 90 will appear on each full strip.

Each bingo game offers 3 prizes: 1 line, 2 lines and House or Bingo.

    1 Line Prize: The player to have all the numbers matched with those drawn or called in a horizontal line on 1 of his tickets; wins the 1 line prize.
    2 Lines Prize: The player to have all the numbers matched with those drawn or called in 2 horizontal lines on one of his tickets; wins the 2 lines prize.
    Full House or Bingo: The player to have all the numbers matched with those drawn or called in 3 horizontal lines effectively covering the entirety of the same ticket wins the Full House prize (largest of the three).

To purchase single tickets, simply click on each individual ticket and click on the purchase button once you are satisfied with your purchases, alternatively you may purchase blocks of tickets by clicking on the desired number, Note; your account will only be debited once you click the purchase button. You may continue to purchase further tickets at any time up to the game start. All purchased tickets will show on the gaming screen and will be marked in orange and will display a “tick” to confirm that the ticket has been successfully purchased. The prize values update as purchases are made, the information button allows you to view the current prize values, a history button allows you to view previous winners and their prizes.

In the clubs, players must dab their number, using a dabber or a pen. For the prize to be valid, the players must shout "bingo" each time they complete a winning line before anyone else to claim the prize. Our game however is automated, and the software will automatically mark (or dab) the tickets and also determine whether it is a winning bingo card.

Winners will receive the current prize regardless of whether they have marked the numbers on the winning ticket as they will automatically be identified by the software.

A pop up window will then appear in the middle of the screen to display the winner/winners and the prize won. Please note that there might be several winners for any prize as each winning card may meet the prize criteria. In such circumstances the cash prize will be split in equal proportions between the winners. Furthermore, a single player may also win more than 1 prize in the same game.

After each prize win, the game will resume to the next available prize. The prize for which players are playing is highlighted. The game ends once the "Full House" or "Bingo" prize is claimed at which time, the purchase period for the next game will begin. Your balance will be updated with all winnings at the completion of the game.
