Online Bingo Cards Just like every game that has a simulation, so does Bingo! The only difference that bingo cards have with its real counterpart is that online bingo cards are acquired over the Internet from bingo sites and are significantly cheaper. There are varying types of online bingo cards. The patterns and prices of the cards depend on the type of game being played. The common online bingo card has 25 numbered grids and each block has a number divided in 5 columns and 5 rows while the middle grid is free, not necessary to be marked. The numbers range from 1 to 75 and depending on the game pattern the grids or blocks are shaded when called. The patterns on the bingo card are very important since it will determine the winner and who has the right to shout “BINGO!” The number of the shaded blocks also varies with some bingo patterns containing up to 20 shaded blocks. Each time a number is called out which matches a number on your ticket, it has to be marked off on their card. This is a little bit difficult and confusing when you are playing more than three cards since each number called means you have to look through the cards in your hands then mark off that number. So to make it easier to play with many cards at once, every column is labeled and the numbers in each column fall under a particular range. The numbers are in sets of 15, but only 5 are randomly selected to be placed in the column under B-I-N-G-O. This is very simple to follow in real life. But in online bingo, other sites offer computer programs that automatically mark off the numbers on the cards but others complain that the fun is taken away with this feature. But with automatic marking of numbers, you can have as many online bingo cards as you want, and the software would automatically notify you if you have a winning card. Even if shouting “bingo “ is not as thrilling as when done in bingo halls, the prizes are just as great! More information about bingo is available in wikicasinogames.com!
