How Many Bingo Cards Are Possible?

In a bingo game, each player is given a set number of cards – typically 52 or 54. The player then tries to match all of their numbers on the card to either the numbers called out by the caller, or else the numbers shown on their Bingo Card.

Players can either try to fill in as many cards as possible, or choose a specific number to try and hit. When all cards have been used up, the player with the most Bingos wins!.

There are theoretically an infinite amount of different Bingo combinations that could be made, though realistically only a finite number of them can be generated given a given set of cards and game rules. In most cases, there are only around 100 possible Bingo combinations that can be generated from a standard deck of 52 cards. However, if special “bonus” cards are included in the deck, then the number of possible combinations jumps up dramatically to around 1 million!.
