Default 75, 80 or 90 ball bingo?

which do you play the most and do you think the type of game you play effects your chances of winning?

I play 75 ball most of the time but i do occasionally play 90 ball, don't know if i win more on 90 or 75 though

what do you think?

Bingo is nothing but a long, drawn out lottery. If there are X cards in the game, and you are playing Y cards, your chance of winning is exactly Y/X.

Am I wrong but wouldn't a greater number give you a better chance of winning and give the ship a less chance because of the greater chance of extended play each game????

In every bingo game I’ve ever observed, the caller keeps calling numbers until somebody wins. Therefore the “house” take is the same regardless of how long the game lasts. It’s a great moneymaker for the cruise line. They know exactly how much they are going to keep before the game even starts.

My point is--I would assume there would be a certain amount of time
alloted - therefore less games and less income.
