80 Ball Bingo Gaining Popularity

Bingo has a long and storied history and the game is constantly evolving. For decades the traditional 75 ball game was the only version of bingo available to players. In the UK where bingo is wildly popular 90 ball bingo was introduced and was an instant hit in the UK and Australia. Recently millions of bingo players have made the switch to online bingo and over 250 websites serve the UK bingo market. 90 ball bingo has eclipsed 75 ball bingo in the UK and is now the most common form of bingo played in the UK.

Recently a new variation of the game has appeared online-80 ball bingo. When 75 balls are too few and 90 balls are too many 80 ball bingo is the perfect solution. At the present time not all internet bingo sites offer 80 ball bingo but this is expected to change shortly. At one time the game was called Shutter Board Bingo but now it is commonly known as 80 ball bingo.90 ball bingo is not commonly found in traditional bingo halls but is rapidly gaining acceptance online. In the online version 80 ball bingo cards are arranged with four columns and five rows and each column has a different color. The colors used on most cards are yellow, red, blue and silver.

Playing 80 ball bingo online is just as easy as playing 75 and 90 ball bingo. Players need to select the number of cards they want to play and like any other online bingo game the numbers are marked automatically. Many internet bingo sites offer 80 ball bingo games using unique patterns to make the game even more interesting. Patterns can be horizontal, diagonal or vertical. In the near future most internet bingo sites are expected to offer this exciting innovative version of the traditional bingo game. In the UK the competition between bingo sites is keen and adding 80 ball bingo has given many websites a competitive edge over the competition.

Competition between sites continues to benefit online bingo players. Bigger and better bingo bonuses and promotions have made internet bingo a big money game. Bingo sites are offering deposit bonuses of up to 500% and re deposit bonuses can be quite substantial. Jackpots in excess of ten thousand pounds are now common and bingo players have never had it better. See what all the excitement is about and play 80 ball bingo at your favorite bingo site.
