BINGO – Terms and Conditions and Rules
Every bingo venue has their own Bingo house rules and we recommend if you wish to look at something specific you ask at the venue for a copy of their house rules and/or Terms of play. The following is a very generic definition of bingo rules describing the physical bingo tickets used at each venue.
BINGO SPECIFIC RULES:
- Brief definition of Bingo: Bingo is a numbers game where players use paper sheets/books to partake. Each full bingo sheet/page contains 6 individual tickets with numbers ranging from 1 through to 90. Each individual ticket contains 15 random numbers. Bingoer promoted venues only uses Paper Bingo Tickets printed by a reputable bingo supplier meeting Australian Standards.
- Players can play as many bingo tickets as they are comfortable playing within any given game. However, for the enjoyment of every player the call speed will not be adjusted because a player has more tickets in play.
- Up to 90 numbers are called out by a Caller using a dedicated Bingo Laptop which has a “Powercall” system provided by BSG – this is a random number generator and bingo ticket checking system which is approved for use in Queensland.
- The first player to mark off all 15 numbers on one ticket (known as a full house) wins the full card and the subsequent prize.
- Minor prizes are awarded for the first player who completes a sequence of numbers nominated by the Caller and described on the program for a feature game. All feature games on the program play onto a full card game.
- The bingo program is comprised of several games. A “game” is defined as any one game on a bingo program and may comprise a feature or 2 features and a full card or a full card only.
- A bingo program may include more than one bingo “session.” For example, a weekday morning bingo game may be all one “session” even if there is a break in the middle of the program. But a larger Night program may be divided into 3 or 4 bingo sessions. A bingo session may be one sheet, one book, or a combination of books and sheets.
- Unless a new series is commenced all games must be played with the same serial number.
