90 and 75 Ball Bingo – Which is the Best?

Traditionally 90 ball bingo was the bingo variation that enjoyed popularity in the USA whilst 90 ball bingo was more popular in the UK as these were the games played in real life bingo venues, but that has been changed considerably by the internet.

In online bingo the 75 and 90 ball games are equally common and people who are new to the game are unlikely to have inbuilt allegiances to one or the other, so to find out which is receiving the most attention amongst new online bingo gamers we took a look at some of the more popular bingo sites along with some bingo forums.

Certainly amongst traditional players the game they favour tends to be the game that they have known of old, so US players favour the 75 ball game whilst 90 ball players favour the 75 ball game, but we thought that it might be that players less familiar with the game would tend to prefer the 75 ball game wherever they come from as in that this game is faster and more colourful; it also has more varieties which would tend to keep it interesting.

When we asked on a couple of popular bingo forums what form of the game people preferred and how long they had been playing the game we received a mixed bag of answers. Some people definitely preferred one form or the other, but most said that they were quite happy to play either.

We could not find any direct correlation between the preferred bingo format and the length of time people had been playing the game. However, what we did find out was that many people enjoyed less well known bingo formats such as 80 ball bingo and 30 ball bingo.

80 ball bingo is a form of rapid bingo played on cards with 4 columns and 4 rows and it is necessary to match a colour coded pattern. 30 ball bingo is even faster that 80 and the cards has just tree rows and three columns. As games last for only a minute, these are often played whist waiting for a normal game to begin.
