Bingo is a game of chance played with 90 balls, numbered from 1 to 90, where the numbers are drawn announced one after another. In order to participate, a player must have at least 1 game card. Each card contains grids of 3 rows and 9 columns, with 15 different numbers, with 5 numbers per row.
How to play
The object of the game is for the player to mark the numbers contained on his or her card(s) as drawn, announced and displayed while being the first to complete a line (Quine) or the entire card (Bingo). The first player to get a combination on one of his cards is the winner. The first player to complete a line (Quine) or the entire box (Bingo) is the winner and immediately calls out “Quine” and/or “Bingo”. When there are multiple winning quine or bingo combinations, the winnings from the combination are shared proportionately among the winners.
The quine: is obtained when all the numbers of a line (5 in total) of the same grid have been drawn, announced and displayed by the game’s host, and as long as it has not already been announced correctly by another player during the draw.
Bingo is achieved when all the numbers in a grid have been drawn, called and displayed by the game host, and another player has not already been called correctly during the draw.
