Numbers are called out randomly and we need to find the numbers and mark them. The bingo game is played on a bingo card, the card is divided into five columns and five rows and when they intersect five rows of boxes and each box above represent the letters B, I, N, G and O. The middle box in column N is empty and the aim of the player is to complete bingo up and down in straight or diagonal line, faster than the other players in the game. Once we complete the series, we are successful in the game, and then we need to hit the bingo button. Then the software checks the card and confirms the win. There are many players in an online bingo room and there is no limit on the number of cards to purchase. Yes, we can purchase as many cards as we desire. Hence there is a possibility that there might be more than one winner and in that case the prize will be shared among the winners.
