75-24 Bingo is another word for the most popular sub-variant of 75-ball bingo. It is clear that the “75” in the title refers to the numbers that are included in the bingo draw. Well, the “24” stands for the numbers there are displayed on a single ticket. In the 75-24 Ball bingo there are 24 numbers on a ticket with a five by five layout.
Still, five by five is 25 and we’re talking of 24 positions. That’s because the midmost square is marked “Free” and it is considered to be always filled. There are versions where numbers appear in all 25 squares, but that is less common, more games and variants feature only 24 numbers on the card.

A card can cost 50p, 75p, or even less, perhaps 10p, or even a single penny.

Daubing is one of the things that players have to do when they’re playing bingo. Daubing simply means ticking the drawn number, in case you have it on your card. When playing land-based bingo, at a bingo hall you will need to daub the numbers manually and pay attention to which number is drawn and whether it is featured on your card. However, when you’re playing online bingo, you can either daub the numbers manually with your mouse or have the software daub them automatically for you.
Of course, you can choose to autodaub and then turn this option off and proceed on to daub numbers manually if you find that more fun. But don’t worry if you’re daubing numbers manually, even if you miss a number or two and you have them on your ticket, you will be able to collect your potential win.
We already said that there might be a different limit when it comes to the number of tickets that you can purchase. You can choose the number of 75-24 Ball bingo cards that you wish to buy and have the system purchase cards automatically, but you may also pick your tickets manually.
