How To Play Three-Eyed Bingo


Quick Rules With Screenshots 

Three-Eyed Bingo is a special kind of bingo game. To win Three-Eyed Bingo, you must match the stated pattern completely on each card and then click the "Bingo" button. Gold balls are worth bonus GV Rewards. (What are GV Rewards?)

Watch the small, animating pattern in the upper left part of the game screen to see the full pattern you need to match. In this example, the pattern for the game is S-O-S. That means on card #1, you must complete the "S" pattern.

On card #2, you must complete the "O" pattern.

And on card #3, you must complete the "S" pattern.

At the start of each round, you have the chance to choose one number and one hidden gem which will be used in a special chat game for bonus GV Rewards (see details below). If you enter the current game late, you won't be able to make picks that game. However, you will before the next game begins.

  • Use your mouse to check off the numbers on your cards that correspond to the numbered balls shown on our bingo board.

  • You can remove the daub mark by clicking on the square a second time.
  • To win, check off the specified patterns on all three bingo cards, then click the "Bingo!" button.
  • The patterns you need to check off are printed on BLUE on each of your cards, and the pattern may be different from each card. For example, the pattern on Card #1 might be "S", the pattern on Card #2 might be "O", and the pattern on Card #3 might be "S".
  • The status bar beneath each card tells you what percentage of the card you have validly checked off. When you have 100% on each card, click the "Bingo" button to claim your win.
  • The first valid claim wins.
  • Win bonus GV Rewards by daubing numbers that match the gold bingo balls!
  • You may check off numbers that are not in the pattern (for example, to claim gold balls that fall outside the pattern). This will not prevent you from winning. But be sure the winning numbers are all checked off before clicking "Bingo!"
  • One new bingo ball is available and automatically displayed every few seconds.
  • The game ends after 60 bingo balls have been dropped, whether or not there is a winner.

What are the Gold balls?


The Gold balls represent chances to win additional GV Rewards. If you daub numbers on your cards that match the gold bingo balls, you'll win bonus GV Rewards. NOTE: The numbers can appear in the stated pattern or outside the stated pattern.

If I daub outside the pattern (for example, to claim a Gold ball), will I jeopardize my win?


No. If I daub outside the pattern (for example, to claim a Gold ball), you will not jeopardize your win.

Our system only checks to verify that you daub the balls that match the stated pattern, regardless of whether they're gold or not.

To win, what matters is that you daub the balls that match the stated pattern and click "Bingo" before the game ends.

How do I close the eyes that are following me around?


If, for any reason, you want to close the eyes in the middle "free" space of your cards, simply click the eye and it will close. (After all, nobody likes being poked in the eye, right?)

Why does the ball caller sometimes pause and then call out a bunch of balls in a row?


Gamesville requires a constant connection between your computer and our servers. This is because the game on your computer is constantly "talking" with our servers, and vice versa, communicating information about GV Rewards, chat messages, balls called, and so on.

If anything interferes with that connection--for example, if your Internet Service Provider goes down for maintenance or experiences a network "hiccup"--you will not receive the latest ball called on your computer, even while others do on theirs. When the network interference on your end clears up, all the balls that have stacked up in those few seconds will come racing down toward you, making it seem like our bingo caller, Dickie, is suddenly on speed.

If I enter a game late, do I have less of a chance of winning?


Your odds of winning a game are not diminished if you enter the game after it has already started.

When you enter a game in progress, you are automatically sent ALL the bingo balls you have missed since you last received one. So while you will need to "catch up" for a moment or two if you enter mid-game, you should quickly get right into the thick of things on an equal basis with everyone else playing that game.

(Of course, there are exceptions: For example, if you enter a game when virtually all balls have already been called -- meaning there are a scant few moments left in the game -- then the few moments it may take you to get caught up may keep you on the sidelines while players who have been in the game all along pounce on the one or two balls they need to win!)
