All Things You Need to Know About 90 Ball Bingo Jackpots

90 ball bingo is the most popular form of online bingo in the UK, and it comes with a variety of different jackpot prizes. From fixed jackpots to progressive jackpots and more, there are lots of different jackpot prizes up for grabs.

Remember, not all bingo games and prizes are the same, so it’s important to read up on the game you’ve chosen before it begins to make sure you know what you could win, and how you could win it.

Fixed jackpots have a predetermined prize amount that does not change depending on how many people are playing the game, or how much tickets cost.

Before you start playing, you’ll be able to see what the fixed jackpot prize is for the game.

In 90 ball bingo, a fixed jackpot is won by getting a full house on your card.

Every 90 ball bingo game has a fixed jackpot, but some have progressive ones too (more on this in the next section).

It’s important to note that if multiple players get a full house at the same time, the money is split equally between them.


Some 90 ball bingo games have progressive jackpots that can be won in addition to the fixed jackpot prize available in the game.

Progressive jackpots increase in size as more players join the game, with a small percentage of the cost of their card going towards the jackpot prize.

In 90 ball bingo games, progressive jackpots are usually won by getting a full house within a certain number of bingo calls.

The jackpot will continue to accumulate over multiple games until it is eventually won.

After it has dropped, the prize total will be reset and the process starts again.


Escalator jackpots work in a similar way to progressive jackpots, where the aim is to get a full house within a certain number of bingo calls. However, if this doesn’t happen in the game, the number of bingo calls the full house must be achieved in increases – giving players a greater chance of winning the jackpot.

Let’s take a look at an example to show you what we mean:

Imagine that a game has an escalator jackpot of £2,000, which is won if a player completes a full house in 36 bingo calls or less.

If this doesn’t happen within the agreed time frame (let’s say within one hour), the next time the game is played you’ll have 38 bingo calls to get a full house.

The number of bingo calls you’ll have to get a full house will increase on the hour until someone wins!

Bear in mind that this is just an example of how an escalator jackpot game could work - remember to check the rules for the specific game you’re playing before you begin.
