How to play
5-line Bingo cards are similar to the ones used in 75-ball bingo. Each card has a 5×5 grid, the only difference being that the 5-line card does not have a blank square in the centre.
The screen will display the word BINGO, with each line of numbers being shown under a letter, i.e.:
- B: 1-15
- I: 16-30
- N: 31-45
- G: 46-60
- O: 61-75
How to Play 5-Line Bingo
The basic rules are extremely simple. Every time a number is called in 5-line Bingo, players are to mark it off on their card if they have it. All online versions will allow auto-marking to make things even simpler.
Ostensibly then, 5-line Bingo is not necessarily a different game as such but rather a different display and a variation of how we play the game.
What it brings to the online bingo world is a fast pace, an easy-to-understand format and a way of playing bingo that suits those of all levels of experience. Whether you are a desktop player or one who plays on the move, versions of 5-line Bingo can be played on all sorts of devices.
Ways to Win
Appropriately, in most games of 5-line bingo there are a total of five different ways to win. With that being the case, there can also be anything up to five individual winners per game. The 5-line bingo win combinations are:
- One Line Win – the first player to mark off a full line wins.
- Two Line Win – the first to mark off two full lines wins.
- Three Line Win – the first player with three full lines marked off takes the win.
- Four Line Win – the first to mark off four.
- Full House Win – the first player to mark off all five lines is the winner.
The amount players can win for each of these achievements depends on the individual bingo provider, the ticket price and how many players are in the game.
Return to Player
The RTP in 5-Line Bingo sits at around 80%, more than fair for a game of this nature. That figure is based on all player returns over the course of a month, so your actual chances of winning depend on how much you’ve paid for your ticket, how many you’ve bought and of course how much competition there is in the room.
5-line Bingo is incredibly easy to play. The 5×5 grid, the five ways to win and the (up to) five individual winners per round give this version of the game a certain symmetry.
The game can be played on the move or at home, on all desktop computers and on any iOS or Android smartphone or tablet and that, along with the ease of the game, makes it great for everyone.
