50 ball bingo is a fun new way to play UK online bingo, and as you may have guessed it features 50 balls rather than the traditional 90.
The game is played on a 5x2 card, with a prize for one line and a bigger prize for a full house. Currently 50 ball bingo games are rare – which we think makes them all the more exciting!
We’ve got a hunch that they will become more popular as people start to play them more, so why not be a trendsetter and try it today?
In this article we’ll tell you everything you need to know about 50 ball bingo, including how to play and what 50 ball games are available at online bingo casinos like Slingo.

What Is a 50 Ball Bingo Game Like?
Due to fewer balls in play, 50 ball bingo games are played at a much quicker pace than traditional 90 ball games. If you’ve ever played 30 ball bingo, where games are usually over in less than a minute, you’ll have an idea of what 50 ball bingo is like. Expect an exciting, fast-paced game with a simple format that provides a whole new way to enjoy bingo.
The bingo card will probably also look a little different to what you’re used to, because 50 ball bingo cards have a 5x2 format. Each card has 10 random numbers from 1 - 50 printed on it, with no blank spaces. To make it easy to find the numbers, the cards follow a traditional format that has numbers from 1-10 in the first column, 11-20 in the second column, and so on.
Guide to Playing 50-Ball Bingo
Ready to play 50 ball bingo? There are a few steps you’ll need to take first:
1) Log in to your Slingo account, or register if you’re not already a member.
2) Add credit to your account if required.
3) Choose which game you’d like to play (currently Pretty Penny is our only 50 ball bingo game).
4) Buy your bingo tickets (you can also pre-buy tickets in advance of upcoming games).
5) It’s time to play! Just like in traditional bingo, the aim is to mark off numbers on the grid when they are called out.
6) The player who is the first to mark off the required pattern wins the prize (in 50 ball bingo, this is for one line or a full house).
7) You can choose to mark off the numbers yourself, or use the auto-daub feature. Either way, in online bingo you’ll never miss any numbers or wins!
What Other Bingo Variations Are There?
Although we’re focusing on 50 ball bingo in this blog, there are plenty of different bingo variants to explore here at Slingo.
Let’s take a look at them in a little more detail below:
75 Ball Bingo
75 ball bingo is the most popular form of bingo in the USA, and you’ll usually need to match a certain pattern on the reels (an arrow, four corners, etc.) to win a prize.

30 ball bingo is a newer form of bingo that is increasing in popularity, and with just 30 balls it offers a turbo-speed gaming experience where winners are found within one or two minutes!

80 Ball Bingo
80 ball bingo is faster than the standard 90-ball game, but a little slower than 75 ball bingo, making it perfect for those looking for a happy medium between the two.
It’s played on a 4x4 grid filled with numbers from 1-80, and you can win by marking off a pattern shown on the card. Common patterns include horizontal and vertical lines, single numbers and four corners.
