The central element in all online Bingo games is the call board. Much like the scoreboard of a football game, it helps players keep track of what is current in the game. The "information station" of the game is constantly updated with every call - look to it if you get lost during the game, or if you want to double check that you've marked all of your called numbers.
The Board's Design
The call boards for 75 Ball and 90 Ball Bingo have a similar look to them, but each is designed to suit the two different playing styles.
Like the 75 Ball card, the 75 Bingo call board is five rows deep. At the far left side of the board you will see the letters BINGO descending. Each of these letters is attached to its corresponding row of 15 numbers. In the "B" row, for example, you will find the numbers 1 to 15 listed in consecutive order. Underneath the "B" row is the "I" row, where the numbers 16 through 30 are listed.
If you're playing 90 Ball Bingo, the call board will look a bit different, but the concept is the same. You'll see all 90 numbers listed. Look for the call board's special section devoted to the last five numbers called. Depending on which site you use, the location of this section on the board will vary.
Information Given by the Board
The call board is the place to go to find out exactly which numbers have been called in the game. As you've seen, the board includes all of the 75 or 90 Bingo numbers.
Every time one of these numbers is called, the number on the board lights up. These numbers remain lit throughout the game. You do not need to rely on your memory of called numbers - you can simply check the board if you're unsure.
Another great benefit of the call board is that it designates a special section for the last five numbers called. Each time a new number is called, the numbers will all be shifted down to show the most recent calls. If you spaced out for a moment, you can look at this list and see if you might be a Bingo winner ! Finally remember never gamble more than you can afford to lose as bingo can become and expensive habit if you do not limit your expenditure.
