Bingo Game Ideas to Try at your Next Bingo Event: G-Ball

Sometimes playing the same rotation of games can become boring for you and your players. Keeping your game ideas fresh can be beneficial, in that it gives your players the opportunity to learn and try different bingo games. This could, in turn, attract new players or encourage current players to keep returning to your events. You might find your next big bingo hit! Check out this bingo game you may not have tried yet:

G-Ball

How to play: During game play, the first G-Ball pulled becomes the “G-BALL”. If a player wins the game and the number of calls is more than the first G-BALL called, the player wins the lowest-tiered prize. If a player wins the game and the number of calls is less than the first G-BALL called, the player wins a higher-tiered prize. Lastly, if a player wins the game and the number of calls is the SAME as the G-BALL, the player wins the highest-tiered prize.

For example, a bingo game begins and the first G-Ball is pulled on the ninth call. The G-BALL is G-49. A player wins the game in 56 calls. That player wins the lowest-tiered prize, in our example it is $100. There is an 80% chance the winner will win the game in more calls than the number on the G-BALL. The next game, the first G-Ball is pulled on the third call. The G-BALL is G-56. A player wins this game in 50 calls. This player, because the number of calls is less than the number on the G-BALL, wins the higher-tiered prize, $250. Winners of this game have a 14% chance of receiving this outcome. The game after that has a G-BALL of G-46, and the player wins in 46 calls. That player would win the highest prize, $500. This is the toughest outcome to win, with only a 6% chance of winning.

G-Ball is a simple but effective way to add to your bingo game: gameplay can be executed as usual, without the need for extra equipment or rules to remember.
