The 30 ball bingo card is very simple. It consists of a 3 x 3 bingo card with 9 squares, and – as its name implies – 30 numbers are called during the course of the game that need to be matched to the numbers on the card.

How to Play 30-Ball Bingo
Unlike other versions of bingo, there is usually not a variety of patterns offered on 30-ball bingo card by the online bingo room. The only winner is usually the Full House winner, where the player needs to cover all the numbers on the card, and nothing less. Having said that, though, in recent times, a handful of online bingo rooms have started to experiment with 30-ball bingo and now offer it as a three stage pattern game, meaning that players start off with any single line, then move onto any two lines and then finally the full house, as with other variants of the game.
However, for the sake of simplicity, the rules of 30-ball bingo are usually as follows:.
- Players purchase their 30-ball bingo cards through the online casino.
- They wait for the random number generator or bingo caller to call out thirty numbers.
- Whenever a number comes up that is found on the card, the player daubs it on their card (or the automatic daub feature at the online bingo site will do the work for them).
- As soon as all 30 numbers have been covered on the board, players ‘call’ bingo and they’re a winner.
The Popularity of 30-Ball Bingo
As we’ve noted, one of the reasons why 30-ball bingo is so popular among players online is the fact that so many more games can be played within an hour, increasing the player’s chances of winning. In addition, players can manage so many more cards simultaneously. Another reason the game is popular is that the probability of winning the progressive jackpot in 30-ball bingo is much higher than winning the jackpot in different bingo versions such as 75-ball bingo or 90-ball bingo. While not all 30-ball bingo games carry a jackpot, those which do, are won more often, statistically. If the bingo site being played at offers players the chance to win a prize after only one line, it is very possible to wind up with cool cash after just three numbers are called, if luck is on their side.
30-ball bingo’s popularity continues to grow as more and more online bingo sites offer this variant of the game. Perhaps its most attractive quality is the fact that the time that it takes to play a game is literally cut in half, meaning faster results and quicker jackpots. The speed of the game leads to higher levels of adrenaline, which in turns makes for an amazing buzz!
