If you are an old school bingo player, you might be a little puzzled by the idea that winning combinations now go beyond lines and full houses. But if you want to keep up with the changing trends in online bingo, take a look at some of the different variations you will likely encounter when exploring online gambling bingo sites. New shapes are appearing all the time, so always keep your eyes peeled for the latest additions.

Lines

Not needing any explanation as this is one of the classics, in today’s online bingo, you will find that depending on the game, you can get a winning line horizontally, vertically, and diagonally.

“Blackout”

This means that you will only win if you erase all your numbers. If you are playing blackout, don’t forget to take into account the size of your grid, the fewer squares, the easier it will be!

“T”

Obviously, this means T-shaped, but your T should take shape at the center of your grid. This means a vertical line in the center of your grid and a horizontal line along the top row. Some online bingo games accept “crazy T,” which means that your horizontal line is along the bottom row (forming an upside-down T), or even a side T with a horizontal line in the row middle and a vertical line at the far end left or far right columns.

“U”

Just like before, this means creating a U shape in your grid. To do this, you will need to clear the squares around three sides of the bingo card. It follows that your ‘U’ can be turned in any direction you want (upside down, sideways), as long as there is a resolute ‘U’ left.

“Square bingo”

This rule is quite simple. Mark all four sides of your grid, and you will end up with “square” bingo.

“Diamonds”

It can be both a large diamond and a small diamond. The big one will have his points in the central box at the top, bottom, left, and right. On the other hand, the small diamond is created when you mark the squares on the left, right, top, and bottom of the free space in the center of the map.

“Broken photo frame”

It’s a little different, but if you come across a game that includes it in the rules, it’s always fun to give it a try. To create a broken frame, you need to mark a square with only the corner boxes and the middle square on each side.

“American flag”

Do you play online bingo on July 4? You will be absolutely sure to stumble upon this one. To form the flag and win this bingo, you need to mark the top three rows and fill in two more squares vertically on either side of the flag to create a pole.
