How to Play Bingo
Funding You Bingo Account
First you must fund your Bingo account. In order to do so, click on the "Transfer" tab in the top navigation within the Bingo client. Enter the amount you would like to transfer from your 5Dimes Main account to your Bingo Balance. Then click on the "From my Main Balance to my Bingo Balance" button. When you are ready to transfer funds back to your 5Dimes Main account, simply enter the amount you want to transfer and click on the "From my Bingo Balance to my Main Balance" button.
Select the Bingo Room(s) of your choice by clicking on the 'PLAY' button (you may open several bingo rooms). If you log in and there is a game in progress, you will have to wait for the game to finish. When the game finishes, you will see a set of bingo tickets/card or strips. Each ticket or card is identifiable by its unique number. The tickets/cards are ordered vertically in sets. Arrows allow you to scroll up and down to look at or change the tickets/cards.
Click on the ticket (or strip) that you wish to play. In Bingo 90, if the game is playing strips you may select entire strip(s) or within each strip, individual tickets. Clicking on a ticket/card or strip will cause it to change color, highlighting your choice. If you are satisfied with your selection, you must click the 'Buy' button to accept the cards for the game. If you don't press the 'Buy' button before the game starts, you will not be eligible for that game. Each Bingo room displays 'New cards', 'Quick Pick' and 'Auto Buy' buttons.
The 'New Cards' button will allow you to select new, randomly generated tickets or strips. If you make any changes to the cards by clicking the 'New' ticket button, you must press the 'Buy' button again if you wish to buy them.
The 'Quick Pick' button will allow you to select the tickets more quickly, in increments of 5, 10, 20, 'MAXIMUM' or by the number of your choice, without having to select them individually.
The 'Auto Buy' button will allow you to setup an automatic buying feature (which will buy cards/tickets for you) based on price and number of cards/tickets. Auto Buy may not be used to purchase cards/tickets for free games.
The 'Pre-Order' button allows you to purchase cards/tickets in advance. For example a Bingo game plays later in the day which you cannot be physically in the room for; with pre-order feature you can buy cards/tickets for that game and the system will play those cards/tickets for you and credit you any winnings. You do not have to be logged in or on the site for this feature to work.
When the game begins, ONE ticket/card will be the minimum you can play per game. Different games may have different requirements in terms of the minimum and maximum cards/tickets you can buy. The game will automatically track your cards for you. You may wish for the game to display your best ticket or your best strip first. You can do so, by making your personal choices through the 'Settings' button. As your cards get close to obtaining the specified line or pattern for the game, the border will change color. The program will tell you how many numbers you have to go to claim a line, two lines, full house or bingo.
You do not need to click the 'Bingo' button when you get a line, a full house or a bingo: the program will allocate it to you; although we encourage our customers to use the 'Bingo' button to spice up our chat room.
Whenever a bingo, a one line, two line or full house is called, the program will display a winners' box with the user name(s) of the winner(s), the ticket number(s) and the amount won. Each one of your cards can win; that is, you may have more-than-one bingo in a game.
Game Stats show information to you regarding the current game that you are playing (or about to play) and the previous game. Information includes your information; how many cards/tickets you purchased, how much you have been charged (debited from your balance), how many winning cards/tickets Game ID, Winners and 1 To Go winners as well.
Leader Board shows you out of the participating players of the current game as closest to completing a line, two lines, full house or bingo.
Chat Channel allows you to communicate and converse with other players within the bingo room. We also have a chat moderate who makes sure Chat is fun for all. We also play chat games which are based on the outcome of the current bingo game. Players can win Bingo Bucks (BBs) when playing Chat Games.
