- How do I buy tickets?
In order to play you need to buy tickets either from the main game interface or from the "Advanced Buy" Menu at the top of the game interface. "Advanced Buy" provides the following options:
- Buy Games: Buy Tickets in advance for future Games
- Purchase History: View a history of the games you played and see what you won
- Accounts Summary: View a history of all your BBz credits
- What are "Tickets"?
In 90 Ball Bingo: Each ticket is made up of 3 rows and 9 columns. Each row has 5 numbered squares; while there will always be 4 free squares per row.
Sets of 6 tickets are called strips, and in a strip, every possible number from 1 to 90 is distributed ONCE (and only once) across these 6 tickets. Therefore, for every ball called, one number can be marked on any of the 6 tickets.
In 75 Ball Bingo: Each ticket consists of a 5 x 5 grid full of random numbers from 1 – 75.
- Can I buy tickets in advance?
You may buy as many tickets as you wish, up to 24 hours in advance.
To buy tickets in advance, log into Giggle Bingo and select "Buy Tickets". You can select the number of tickets and the games you wish to play from the menu provided.
- How many tickets can I buy?
You can buy between 1 and 50 tickets per game.
REMEMBER: The more tickets you buy the higher your chances of winning. Although there are only 6 tickets visible at a time on your screen, you can scroll across to view the rest, and the game software automatically keeps track of all your tickets, and informs you if you win.
Also, your best ticket is always indicated in the Best Ticket window.

The odds of you winning are equal to the rest of the players, so all you must do is wait for it to happen to you!

Tickets can be purchased in advance using the Scheduled Buying option. This means that you can schedule specific games in advance, even if you can't be online at that time. (This is great for those special games that you do not want to miss!)
