What are the bingo numbers?
The numbers in a game of bingo will range from 1-90, 1-80 or 1-75, depending on the type of game you play. Traditional forms of bingo are 90-ball games, giving you more numbers in play at any time. However, we’ve got a good choice of 80-ball and 75-ball games that tend to offer quicker action if you’re strapped for time, such as the Deal or No Deal 75 Ball game and the 80-ball Silver Room.
We also have a unique 36-ball game variant called Cash Cubes, which is another fast-paced variant on the traditional form of bingo.

How do you claim numbers in bingo?
Claiming numbers in online bingo is much easier than playing in a real-life bingo hall. Unlike real life, you don’t need a dabber to mark off numbers on your bingo card. The system automatically marks it off for you and will notify the bingo caller if you win a line, two lines or a house.
What bingo numbers are called the most?
Statistically speaking, no number should be called out the most as there is no bias between one number or the next. Although there are certain theories on choosing winning bingo balls, everything averages out over time, giving you no long-term edge.
What are the numbers on bingo balls?
Each bingo ball in an active game is numbered from one to 90 (90-ball game), one to 80 (80-ball game) and one to 75 (75-ball game). No two balls can have the same number during any active game of bingo.
What are good bingo numbers?
There are two schools of thought as to what makes good bingo numbers on a card:
- Granville’s Theory Given that all bingo numbers have an equal chance of being drawn out in a game, American financial writer, Joseph E. Granville believes players should choose bingo numbers that offer a broad spread from one to 90 (or one to 75 if you’re playing 75-ball games). Granville believes a good card consists of a mix of odd and even and high and low numbers.
- Tippett’s Theory At the other end of the spectrum, British statistician, Leonard Tippett believes the best bingo cards have numbers that are grouped as close to the number one or 90 (or 75) as possible.
Choosing lucky numbers for bingo
When you play online bingo, it’s not possible to select lucky numbers on your bingo cards. That’s because every bingo card you pay to play with is randomly assigned bingo numbers by our online bingo number generator prior to the game.
