Purchasing of Bingo Tickets or Strips
The ticket purchaser feature can be used to select the number of desired tickets or strips for any specific bingo game. Once the tickets are purchased, there is a wait while the countdown to the game occurs, if additional tickets are desired they can still be purchased during that time. Specific tickets can also be purchased by manually selecting each desired ticket, which will then be added to the ticket purchaser box.
The bingos online game offers a bulk-purchasing feature where a large number of tickets can be purchased for any specific bingo game. Bingo tickets and strips can be pre purchased for any future games through the bingo lobby schedule. The different games playable at certain times and dates for specific bingo rooms can be selected and a desired number of tickets per game can be purchased.

These details include the game name, the total number of players in the game, the prize amount and the time until the game will begin. When the game begins the display will show the name, number of players, details of the prize and the total prize amount.

Winning a Prize in Online Bingo
Each of the various types of bingos online games offer a variety of prizes that are won by meeting certain requirements set out in the game. The main prize is won by the first player to call out bingo when they have matched a winning pattern. If multiple players reach a winning pattern at the same time, the prize amount is divided equally between them. The winning patterns include horizontal lines, vertical, lines and diagonal lines. Some of the bingos online gaming sites offer a selection of other types of winning patterns like those that form an M or a T shape. Some require a full house to win; this is where the entire card is marked off. The payouts are usually determined by the price of the bingos online ticket and the number of players taking part in the specific bingo game. Some online gaming sites may offer a fixed minimum prize amount regardless of the price of the bingo tickets and the number of players.
