International Bingo Variants
When it comes to bingo, either online or offline, many regions of the world have a traditional bingo game. However, with the introduction of the game to the internet, these games have become available to everybody the world over.
It is well known that 75 ball bingo is the traditional game played in bingo halls across the United States of America, that 90 ball bingo is the pride of Britain when its comes to bingo variants and multi line bingo is played predominately in Sweden. However, things have changed over recent years on the internet and all three variants can be found at many online bingo sites aimed at the UK bingo market.
Take a look at any of the online bingo sites aimed at the UK bingo player and you will find that many host a multitude of bingo variants. One of the biggest software providers is Globalcom/888 and sites on this platform host both 75 and 90 ball bingo. However, move onto a site powered by the Virtue Fusion bingo software in the UK and you will be offered 75, 80, and 90 ball bingo with some even hosting the multi-line 75 ball variant well loved in Sweden.
When it comes to American facing bingo sites the bingo variants on offer are not nearly as impressive as those of the UK bingo sites. All will host 75 ball bingo and some may offer 90 ball bingo but that’s about as far as it goes. This market is currently under restrictions due to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIEGA) and may change should the laws governing internet gaming in the US alter.
Bingo has yet to really take off in Spain but there are a number of Spanish Bingo sites available online at the moment. One of the most popular is El Cartonazo and it is powered by the Globalcom/888 bingo software. This means that players can choose from 75 and 90 ball bingo at this site. However, well known brands like bet365 Bingo also have a Spanish offering meaning that 80 ball and the multi line 75 ball bingo is also available.
It’s not really clear, other than the traditional games for the UK and US, which country prefers which type of bingo game when it comes to playing online.
Whilst the traditional game in the UK is 90 ball bingo that isn’t to say that British players don’t love all versions of the game available to play online. You only have to log into any of the bingo rooms and you will find an even spread throughout the games on offer. 90 ball bingo may be our traditional bingo hall game but when it comes to playing bingo online, players in the UK love all versions of the game.
Multi-line bingo proves popular amongst all nationalities and the reason is simple; it’s a cross between 75 and 90 ball bingo. Multi line bingo offers the bingo cards of 75 ball bingo with the multiple chances of winning of 90 ball bingo.
Bingo is a game that spans all ages and nationalities and available on the internet, no one bingo variant proves more popular than another in the bingo rooms. It’s the prizes on offer that will sway a bingo player!
