What is 90-Number Bingo?
90-Number Bingo is the bingo game that's traditionally played in the United Kingdom and Australia. It's just like the North American-style 75-Number Bingo where players buy tickets, then mark the numbers that are called.

There are some differences, though. In 90-Number Bingo, cards have three rows and nine columns. Five squares in each row contain numbers ranging from 1 to 90, and the rest are blank

How to play 90-Number Bingo
It's easy. You just buy your tickets before the game begins. The game is played with three patterns, and each pattern has a prize associated with it.

The patterns include Single Line Across (Line), Two Lines Across (Two Lines), and Full House.

Random numbers from 1 to 90 are called on the Bingo Call Board. The first player to correctly cross off a horizontal Line, then Two Lines, and finally all of the numbers on a ticket - that's Full House - would win the corresponding prize for that pattern.

In 90-Number Bingo, each individual grid is referred to as a ticket. 90-Number Bingo tickets are 3 rows by 9 columns. Each row contains 5 numbers and 4 blank spaces.

A Strip is a set of 6 tickets containing all 90 numbers, distributed throughout in a Dab-All format. When a strip of six tickets is played in one bingo game, every possible number from 1 -90 is there. So, you'll be able to cross of a number at each bingo call.

Getting tickets
You're now ready to play bingo... and to get your hands on some fabulous prizes! Remember, you can always ask questions or get help from our Customer Service Department.

Quick buy
To speed things up, you can use the Quick Buy feature. Just click on 'Quick Buy' - it's the button in the left-hand section of the Game Window. A small pop-up window will then appear.

Choose from 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 or Max - or just type in the number of strips you want.

Click 'BUY', and they're yours!

75 ball "Pattern" bingo
75 ball bingo is played on a card 5 columns wide and 5 rows deep. The 5 columns are labeled B-I-N-G-O. Each card contains 24 randomly selected numbers from a possible 75. The centre square is known as the 'free square' and remains empty at all times.

The numbers are arranged in groups of 15 as follows:
Column B features the numbers 1-15.
Column I features the numbers 16 - 30.
Column N features the numbers 31 - 45.
Column G features the numbers 46 - 60.
Column O features the numbers 61 - 75.

Ball numbers are called by column letter, then number e.g. B12, N38, G51.

Patterns
75 ball bingo is known to many as 'Pattern Bingo', because the aim of the game is to daub (mark off) all of the numbers in a particular pattern as soon as possible. The patterns change randomly for each new game. You can see which pattern is currently being played by looking in the pattern box in the top of the screen.

The shaded boxes indicate where on your bingo cards the pattern must appear. When the numbers are called, only those within the patterned area will be daubed (marked off) on your cards. If the centre, or 'free square', is part of the featured pattern, this will automatically be daubed (marked off) from the beginning of the game.

Different patterns add to the excitement of each game. Watch out for our special VIRGIN patterns!! Patterns can range from simple shapes, to letters, numbers or star signs.

The bingo winner will be the first player or players to mark off all their numbers in the featured pattern. To achieve this you simply have to buy your tickets and when the game starts the numbers will be automatically daubed for you, the winner announced and prize funds allocated.

Calling CLAIM!
Directly below the Call number is your favourite word - Claim! If you're the first player to match the pattern, click on it to claim your prize.

Please note: If you forget to press the Claim button, don't worry - if you're really the winner, we'll make sure you get what's yours. Even if you've accidentally closed your Bingo session or become disconnected, if you're a winner, you'll still win!

When you win, we'll put your prize directly into your account. If there are several winners, we'll split the jackpot evenly.

Game Option
Auto daub
When you pick the Auto Daub option, we'll automatically mark off the numbers on your ticket when they're called. This is ideal if you've bought too many to keep up with! You'll know when Auto Daub is on because we'll put a check mark next to it, and all called numbers will be highlighted in coloured squares.

If you prefer to mark off your own, pick the Manually Daub option.

You can also choose your own personalized Dauber Style - see, all this and good looks too!

Best card sorting
This feature arranges the tickets in order of performance. If you're playing a few at once, the ones that start winning will be placed first. We'll mark them too, so you can see the ones that have "1 to go", "2 to go" or "3 to go". So, you can start getting excited as you get closer to Bingo!

Progressive Jackpot
These ones are winning the popularity stakes! With a Progressive Jackpot, you can win big on low stakes. Yes, just one card can change everything!

Here's how... We put money from the daily bingo games into a jackpot. You can see it build up in the lobby area - sometimes it literally grows before your eyes.

We're planning on adding some new ones too - so stay tuned.

Game Features
Mini games
As well as 90 ball Bingo, we have some 'mini games' for you to play too. You can even play them at the same time as the main game, so it really is double the fun!

Video poker
Ah, one of the favourites! It's part poker, part slots. Plus, your chances of winning are far higher than in the "pure luck" games such as roulette. That's because here you're combining luck with strategy. With enough practice, you'll be playing like a pro!

Because you're allowed to discard, your strategy is vital. The key is to discard in a way that gives you the best chance of winning. Good luck!!

Slots
We have slots a-plenty! They're the easiest game to play, and they're so much fun - especially when you're winning. Pick from fun games such as 5-reel 'Trolling for Treasure' and 'Get Cracking' or 3-reel 'Three Times the Riches' and 'Double Scoop Delight'. We also have the arcade classics 'Double Diamond Spin' and '7s Ablaze'.

Those progressive jackpots we mentioned earlier will also extend to slots and video poker very soon - how exciting!

Keno
This simple Lottery-style game is an exciting pastime and, most importantly, it offers the possibility of winning large payouts on relatively small wagers. To play, simply select between 1 and 10 numbers from the Keno board. The more numbers you select, the higher the maximum payout.

Bingo bonus
As you collect Bingo Bonuses, we'll display them in the Game Stats window.


Chat
Chat's the best part of online bingo! It lets you 'talk' to the Game Masters, friends and other players. It's easy to join a chat room - just click on "Join A Room", then pick which one you'd like.

In the small box at the bottom on the conversation window, type your message and then click 'Send'. You can even mute people, if you're not interested in what they're saying. Just click on their name, then choose 'Mute'. If you change your mind, just hold CTRL and click on their name again.

Chat help
You're never alone in there - our friendly and knowledgeable Chat Masters (CMs), are always in the Chat Room, ready to help you out. You'll know who they are because they'll have the (#) Hash symbol next to their name. So, it might look like this: # CHAT ADMIN # or # SUPPORT #.

Rules for chat rooms
We're all about having fun. So we need to stick a few rules in there, just to make sure that our chat rooms stay friendly and safe. Here's what you need to know:

1. Don't impersonate another person in chat - it's not fair, and you will get caught out.
2. Don't swear or use indecent or foul language. It's just not nice!
3. Don't harass other chatters. We'll kick you out if you do.
4. Please use a nickname in good taste. For obvious reasons!
5. The CMs are in charge. So please be nice to them.
6. Don't argue at any time. Be nice to each other. If you have a complaint, then email us.
7. Don't slander, abuse or threaten others.
8. Don't promote others websites or companies.
9. Don't use vulgar or threatening statements.
10. Don't use racial, sexual or ethnic slurs. As we said, you need to be nice!


Chat games
There's another way to have fun and win - if you're a regular player, you can try out our chat room games. There's bonus money in there - we'll give it to active chatters who are playing bingo, with no minimum number of cards. You're 'active' if you've made a deposit in the past thirty days, and you need to be playing bingo in the same stream as the chat game. Bingo Bonus money is given at the discretion of the Chat Masters, according to Virgin Bingo specials guidelines, and you can't withdraw or transfer the bonus money.

Virgin Bingo reserves the right to withdraw any bonus offer, or bonus money, if we think it's being abused. All bonus offers are subject to change, withdrawal or termination at any time, at the sole discretion of Virgin Bingo. To see a full list of chat games click here.

Chat room bingo bonuses
So we can make sure the bonuses go to the right people, please let your CM know when you'll be away from your keyboard. Most of our chat games require players to respond to the CM, so if you don't respond to the CM, then we can't hold your Bingo Bonus for you.

To be eligible for a chat room Bingo Bonus, you need to buy cards. If the CM awards you a Bingo Bonus, but you weren't in the game, please let them know - it's only fair.

Only active accounts will be eligible to receive a Bingo Bonus. You're 'active' if you've made a deposit in the past thirty days.
