Swedish Bingo is a variation of the well-known 75 ball bingo game, however unlike in the normal 75 ball game where there is only one prize available to win, the Swedish Bingo version has five prizes available in every game. Also known as five line bingo, Swedish Bingo was introduced to the UK online bingo world on the Virtue Fusion platform but it was only back in late Summer 2011 that the other popular software platform 888 added this bingo variant to their sites.
Swedish bingo quickly became popular with players simply because there were more prizes on offer in each and every game for similar ticket prices to the standard 75 ball and 90 ball games.
Swedish Bingo is played on a 5 x 5 grid using numbers from 1 – 75 and players win prizes in this multi-line game of bingo for every 1 line, 2 lines, 3 lines, 4 lines and full house called. This five line game of bingo can differ depending on the software being used, however normally players can call one line on any single horizontal, vertical and diagonal line and then the remaining prizes in this Swedish Bingo game are usually just any combination of the five horizontal lines.
This multi-line bingo game also differs from some other variations of the normal 75 ball online bingo gameplay as Swedish Bingo does not have the centre square marked as ‘free’ and doesn’t require any specific patterns to be marked off. This means that players must mark off five numbers in the appropriate lines to be able to win a prize.
When Swedish Bingo was first introduced to the online bingo world many software platforms, such as the 888Holdings/Globalcom just used this version of bingo in promotional games, however players became more familiar with Swedish Bingo and its popularity increased as players realised there were five prizes available to win in every game. This then meant that there became a demand for Swedish Bingo leading to many brands creating specific rooms for this five-line bingo game.
