How to Play 80-ball Bingo
Still considered the new kid on the block, the rules of 80-ball bingo differ slightly from what you may be used to in other online bingo games. There are multiple ways to win in 80 ball, including patterns and complete lines.
As the name suggests, numbers one to 80 are used in 80-ball games. You’ll mark off numbers as they’re called, just like more traditional games – but if you’re playing online, the computer will do that for you.
If you’ve ever played in a Mecca Bingo Club, you might recognise Cashline Bingo, as it’s a fan-favourite between rounds!

There are multiple ways to win when you play 80-ball games:
