DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BINGO NUMBERS & BALLS?

We’re all familiar with the notion of traditional bingo balls. These small spherical wonders have held the interests of bingo fans in physical bingo halls around the globe for as long as the game has been around. While sharing many similarities with traditional bingo, one of the stark differences of online bingo is the absence of bingo balls. Random number generators are what online bingo sites like Moon Bingo use to determine the bingo numbers called in each game. Once you’ve bought your tickets and the game starts, the caller will announce the numbers which’ll be randomly chosen by these generators.

How many bingo numbers are there?

There are several variations of bingo games to choose from, with each having a different amount of numbers. For instance, 75-ball bingo games have 75 numbers that can be called, whilst 90-ball online bingo games have up to 90 bingo numbers. To make it even more interesting, each number has an amusing and somewhat peculiar name that accompanies it known as bingo calls.

For example:
1 – Kelly's Eye
2 – One Little Duck
3 – Cup of Tea
52 – Danny La Rue
53 – Stuck in the Tree
54 – Clean the Floor.
