If you want to run your own game of bingo from home or for a private party, in the past you would have to buy a pack of bingo cards. Now it’s easy to create your own set of tickets to play the game. So rather than drawing up the grids, randomly selecting 15 numbers from one to ninety and making sure they’re in the correct columns, it’s simple to produce cards with a few clicks.
Find an online bingo card maker. A simple one for UK bingo cards is in the Resources below.
Decide how many bingo cards you want to make. They will be printed in multiples of six cards to each sheet, up to a total of 300 cards.
Enter your company or club name or the name of your party. This step is optional.
You can also choose to display a random ticket reference number on each card.
When you preview your cards, you will first see a layout of the cards with printing instructions to follow. Firefox is the recommended browser as it will give you more ways to adjust the print settings but the tickets will still print in other browsers.
If using Firefox, click on File, followed by Print Preview to see how the tickets will print out. If you’re not happy with how they look on the print preview page, adjust the size of the cards using the ‘scale’ and ‘portrait /landscape’ settings. For example if you want to print 3 tickets to a page, use a portrait setting with 100% scale. If using Internet Explorer with standard portrait settings, you will get three cards on each A4 page.
Print and then cut the cards into your bingo tickets.
Note : this will make UK style bingo cards. US bingo cards have a different format.
