ONLINE BINGO ROOM BASICS
How To Play Online Bingo
The rules for playing bingo are fairly simple. The caller randomly pulls numbered bingo balls, #1 through #75, places the number up on the bingo board, and calls out the number. Typical bingo cards have five rows and columns with a random selection of numbers. The "B" column contains random numbers between #1 and #15, "I" has #16 to #30, "N" has #31 to #45 (containing a free space in the center), "G" has #46 to #59, and "O" has #60 to #75.
How To Mark Your Bingo Cards
Once a number is called, check all of your Bingo cards. If the number called matches a number on one or more of your Bingo cards, mark that square on your Bingo cards by clicking on it with your mouse. This will mark that square with a colored circle. You don't have to mark the center square labeled FREE. The FREE Square counts towards all of the Bingo patterns if it is part of the pattern being played. If auto-daub is enabled you do not have to daub your own cards, it will mark them for you.
What To Do If You Have A BINGO!
If you match the game pattern, hit the BINGO button only once. The Bingo button is on the right side of the game screen in most games. You will not be a winner unless you hit the BINGO button. Claiming Bingo will register your Bingo win and confirm that your Bingo card has the correct numbers called. If you submit too many incorrect claims, your bingo button will be inactivated.Some sites automatically call bingo for you. If more than one player has a winning Bingo card, the Bingo jackpot value will be divided equally among the winners.
Free Bingo Offers
Individuals that enjoy playing bingo typically appreciate free offers very much. Locating quality ones can sometimes be difficult but worth the effort. However, even when they can be found, players, especially "newbies", are often confused about how to claim them. Below we will take a look at common free bingo offers, explain exactly what they are and what a person can expect to receive once they sign up for one (or several) online bingo sites..
The most common bingo bonuses are the initial deposit bonus, no deposit bonuses and free bingo bucks. Sign up bonuses are offered to attract new players. They may vary in size and the rules to utilize them may also differ based on the particular website. These sorts of bonuses allow individuals to play games for free. However, many require that an individual spend a certain amount of money before they are able to use them or withdraw their winnings.
No deposit bingo is another pretty standard free offer. Individuals are able to play games without depositing any money. While this sounds great at first glance, players should be aware that before they withdraw any money from their accounts, they will likely be required to make a deposit. They won’t have to spend any money to play but they will if they want to collect on any games won.
Free bingo cards and cash allow players to participate in bingo games for free. These may be offered to new players or made available to established members. Individuals should take advantage of free games, especially when they are offered at websites that a person is already a member of. This is because if a person wins (using free money), they will likely either have to make a deposit or play a certain amount of games in order to collect on it. If an individual is already consistently playing at a particular site, this generally isn’t a big deal. However, if a player is given free bingo cards or cash at a website that they are not a member of and win a game, they might not ever be able to cash out, if they don’t commit to spending time and money at the website. A player’s win, thus becomes inconsequential, because they will never receive their cash or prize.
Free bingo offers can be a great way for individuals to benefit from the generosity of bingo websites. No deposit bonus games, sign up bonuses and free cards are the most commonly offered. They are each designed to convince individuals to join a particular site or participate in games (if they are already a member). While the bingo room is definitely getting something out the deal (hopefully player loyalty and participation), these free offers can be a great way for players to participate in games that they would not normally be able to afford. This may result in wins and hopefully some extra cash.
