Fresh on the scene, this version of Bingo provides old and new players with variation and a new, thrilling gaming experience.
What is 5 Line Bingo?
Although 90-ball and 75-ball bingo may be more popular, sometimes bingo fans love to try different games, especially if they’re bored with the popular ones. That’s when bingo users will more than likely try out the five chance bingo game. It’s fairly new, and it offers more chances of winning than any other, and the speed of the game is electrifying!
History of 5-Line Bingo
The game itself derived from ‘Swedish Bingo’, and if you haven’t already guessed it, when playing this variation of bingo, players have 5 chances of winning. This game gives players more chances of winning than any other bingo game on the planet. This is because 90-ball bingo only gives three chances, and most 75-ball bingo games only give players one chance of winning. So, the 5 Line game is sure to be a winner, when it comes down to having the best chance of securing a win. Read on, for the full facts about this exciting and speedy game.
The 5-Line Bingo Grid
The style of this game is a 75-ball style card, it’s a 5×5 grid, and the numbers range from 1 to 75. This is a classic style grid that has been around for many years. Some players love 75-ball bingo because it’s a an old time classic game, but now the 75-ball grid, has got even better by bringing the 5 Line bingo game to the bingo market. 5 line bingo is kind of like playing 90 ball bingo on a 75 ball bingo card but without the free square.
5 Chances To Win
There are 5 chances of winning when playing this game, and these are as follows:
- Any 1 Line
- 2 Lines
- 3 Lines
- 4 Lines
- 5 Lines (Also known as a full house)
Let’s face it, who doesn’t want to play a game that offers so many chances of hitting the prize? With so many chances of winning, players are sure to win at least once. If bingo users don’t win the first line, they always have another four chances to scoop the prizes.
Some sites only offer 1 to 4 line winners, but some will increase the pot every time the games play. The word ‘Jackpot Winner’ will draw everyone’s attention, especially, if the win happens when you were actually playing the game, when it was won. Winning a jackpot is every bingo player’s fantasy, so now with the 1-5 line game; it’s more achievable for more avid bingo fans to win. More chances to win, means it’s more than likely to make the bingo players dream come true, of actually winning a jackpot game!
How The Games Work
You can win the Line games, by matching a line in any direction (diagonal, vertical, horizontal) for the 1st win event or a horizontal line in any of the following win events. It’s pretty similar to the arcade style bingo game that can be found at the fairground. The games are fast and have easy to follow patterns. This game is ideal for beginners, as well as the ones who love speed bingo. The pace is fast and the prizes are scooped up at the speed of lightening, but the chances of winning so high that there is a constant buzz in the air.

The first player to achieve the desired pattern required will win the stated prize amount.
The Winning Patterns
We tried out some of the games, and in order to win the first one, we needed to get a line, anywhere on our ticket. Just when we thought we were going to win, the game was won. It’s a very fast paced game, but it was really enjoyable.
We got down to 1tg for the 1line, 2lines, 3lines, and the 4 line game, but we only got down to 3tg for the full house game. We have illustrated opposite, the patterns required to win.
It’s Worth A Try
Regular bingo players who have played this type of bingo game before, will know how it all works. But if you are a new player, and haven’t tried it yet, it’s certainly worth giving it a go. The game is fairly new, but many more online or free bingo sites have this version of the game available, than before. The game has proved to be very popular in the UK. and we think this may be because of the five chances of winning, the excitement of waiting on 1tg, and the electrifying speed of the game.
Many bingo sites offer 5 line jackpot games, where the prize money can be rather big. But if you haven’t tried it yet, you’re missing out. So, go and check the game out, and decide if it’s for you or not. We tried it and we loved playing it. Although we didn’t win, the feeling while actually playing the game was amazing, especially when we were waiting on that all important 1tg (one to go for those of you that are not yet clued up about bingo lingo). We were amazed at how fast the line games were won, but we enjoyed the speed of the game, and the excitement of having five chance of winning the bingo patterns.
The game was easy to understand, the prizes were displayed and easy to read. The chat room players were very friendly and chatted loads too. Even the ‘Chat Host’ played some chat games, which allowed players to win even more bonus funds. There was one player who won seven times, but that’s just how bingo goes. You win some and you lose some! Over all it was very enjoyable and a great game to play.
