Starting a Bingo Game
There are two ways you can start a bingo game. By clicking the PLAY button in the Lobby or by clicking on one of the current events and clicking PLAY from there. In either case you will be automatically competing in all current live events in the game which means that collection items for all free events will appear on your Bingo Card. The exception to this rule is for special bingo rooms that require Bingo Tokens to enter
Bingo’s per card
There are 5 possible ways to get bingo’s on a bingo card, even when the card is blacked out: vertical, horizontal, diagonal, 4 corners and an instant win. You can only get the 5th bingo by playing an instant win power up and daubing it, you can get the other 4 bingo’s any other way that I named above. This is to make each game a good length because the game counts down bingo’s rather than time. If there were more than 5 ways to get a bingo, the games would be very short.
Number of Collection items on Bingo Cards
All items are available to collect on your bingo cards in the regular Bingo room. Some items will appear more often than others. Keep playing to collect them all!
Leaving a Bingo Room
- If you leave a regular bingo room, the items you get on your cards will be the same when you re-enter
- If you leave a special bingo room your Bingo Tokens will be lost
Bingo Game Ending
Each round of Bingo ends when all of the available Bingo’s have been claimed, we understand this may be confusing at times. However due to the nature of Bingo Story’s tournament bingo the games will end abruptly.
In addition the last number called will not count against you so you can still get the perfect daubing bonus.
What are Bingo Clubs?
Bingo clubs are a way for you to work with your friends and compete against other clubs for great prizes. You can play blackout bingo with your club to earn collection items which are used in the club tournaments.
How do I create or join a public club?

How can I invite someone to be in my private Club?
There are three settings inside Clubs that allow the Club to be a) Open to anyone joining it b) open by invite only c) Closed to new members. Only Club Leaders and Call leaders can change this setting.
In order to be able to invite specific people to your Club the above must be set to INVITE.
When the Club is set to INVITE, the Club Leader and Call Leader will see the PASSCODE for the Club which can be used to invite others.
To find the passcode, go to the Club section of your game and click Members in the centre of the screen. A pop-up will open. Go to the INFO tab in this pop-up and look to the lower right side of the screen. You will see the lower right box has the title PASSCODE. If you do not see this, you are not the Club owner or call leader and cannot invite.
To invite someone to your club, send them the passcode via private message to their in-game profile, email or any other method you like.
