Bingo is one of those popular, yet simple games that have captured the attention of those who like a little bit of chance based gaming, but don’t want to get into the deeper complexities of skill and strategy based games. As Bingo is such a popular game in the United States, it comes as no surprise that this game has become a favorite in other parts of the world, such as the United Kingdom.

There are, however, some notable differences between the United Kingdom’s Bingo and its United States counterpart. Did you know that UK Bingo used to be more commonly known as “Housey Housey”? It is important to keep in mind that while the game’s premise is largely the same, there are some differences in gameplay.
The two biggest differences in United Kingdom Bingo are the calling of numbers, and the ticket (or “Bingo Card”). The United Kingdom bingo card is made up of twenty seven spaces on a 9 by 3 card (9 spaces horizontal, 3 spaces vertical). The card numbers go up to 90, and each of the nine columns has a different way of presenting the numbers in a random order.

The first column only uses the numbers 1 through 9 in play. The second column uses 10 through 19. This continues on through the ninth column (which is 80 through 90). There are always five numbers and four spaces in each horizontal row, and one, two or (rarely) three numbers vertically. This means each ticket has 15 numbers.
As in United States Bingo, there is a caller that relays the numbers to the players and confirms wins on tickets. Numbers are chosen manually, or through the use of a Random Number Generator (RNG). Calling is done without using the “B”, “I”, “N”, “G”, “O” format, relying instead on repetitive calls within the format, such as calling out “One and seven, seventeen”, basically saying the same number two different ways (there is also a slang used, which we’ll discuss in another article).
While United States Bingo is won through straight horizontal, vertical and diagonal wins, the win format is also different in the United Kingdom. The three types of winning in United Kingdom Bingo are:

Line: This covers a horizontal line consisting of five numbers.

Two Lines: This covers any two lines (obviously vertical, although on some tickets, this may be impossible to do, as you need two vertical lines that have all three places filled).

Full House: A play that covers up all fifteen numbers on the same ticket.

Despite these differences, the core gameplay remains – the announcer announces numbers, and the players keep track of them on their tickets.
There are some other common similarities as well, such as the game being popular in the church and social club scene (and also a hit with older folks), so some things never change. The fun, however, also remains, and in the long run, that’s all that matters.
