Bingo - In Housie, as it is called in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, cards are in grids of 3 rows by 9 columns. The first column is 10-19, the second 20-29, on up to 81-90. Winners are declared from either clearing one row of numbers, two rows of numbers or all of the numbers, depending on which game is called.
In May 2005, Visa introduced a new 1% transaction fee which is applied to transactions completed outside the card holder's country of residence, regardless of which currency is being used. This charge is imposed on the issuing bank, not customers, but many banks will pass that charge on. This may mean that if you use your Visa card to deposit $50 at GoldenPalace Bingo, you might see a charge of $50.50 on your monthly credit card statement. This amount may vary depending on how much of the charge, if any, your bank absorbs. It is anticipated that Mastercard will introduce similar charges later in 2005.
In online bingo the bingo balls are mixed by the computer. There is also a caller, who calls the balls as they each appear on the screen. Players do not need to mark off their cards, as the computer automatically marks cards as soon as it spots a match. An online bingo board helps players keep track of the balls that have already been called.
