There are two ways to BUY Cards.
- Manually - click on the BUY button before EVERY Game and choose the number
- Auto Buy - you decide how many cards you want to buy each game based on the
card price, how many games you want to play and even when to stop if you win a prize
or jackpot or your funds reach a certain level.
Buying Cards Manually
Click the BUY button to purchase cards for the next game. You can choose to buy
up to the maximum allowed additional cards (the system will remember the last number
of cards you selected).
The game will show you the total cost of your purchase and the bonus cards you will
receive with this purchase. Please check them carefully before you confirm the purchase.
If you accidentally make a wrong purchase click on Pass to cancel it before the
game is started.
If you have purchased cards already and click again on Buy then the newly purchased
cards will be added to the ones you already have. The total number of the purchased
cards cannot exceed the maximum cards for the game.
Buying and Playing Automatically
Cashmill Bingo has lots of features to help you enjoy your bingo - even if you
are busy and can't sit at your PC all the time.
- Auto Bingo
If you enjoy calling "Bingo", then uncheck the box and a Bingo button will appear
at the bottom of the screen. But, don't worry if you don't claim"Bingo" in time....
Cashmill Bingo will always award your prize or jackpot - even if you don't claim.
- Auto Daub

always makes sure you get any prize money due to you. If you like to see your cards
daubed for you, make sure you click the Auto Daub box.
- Auto Buy
Check this box if you wish to keep buying cards automatically. When your Auto Buy
is turned on, a green check
will appear next to the Auto tab. When Auto is turned off, a red cross will replace

box and click the arrows to set the number of games you wish to play.
- The Price - Cards window
This window shows you the number of cards at various card prices that you want to
purchase each game when in Auto Buy mode.
Use the arrows to select the number of cards you wish to purchase or key in the
number of cards you wish to play.
The default setting is for five cards each at 5, 10 and 25 cent card prices.You
can add more card prices by clicking on the "Add" button. All prices are in cents
so $1 would be entered as 100c in the first column. Card prices can be removed by
clicking on the card price you wish to remove, then on the "Del" delete button.
When you select Auto Buy, the system will purchase cards for you according to the
settings in the Price - Cards window.
- Advanced Auto Buy Options
Click the down arrows
to reveal the Advanced Auto Buy Options.
- Stop if current schedule changes
Check this box if you wish to stop playing if the current card price changes.
- Stop if I win a Jackpot
If you want to quit playing when you win a Jackpot, check this box.
- Stop if I win a prize over ________
Check this box and use the arrows to put in the amount you want or key in the number
in the window.
- Stop if credits get over ________
If you want to stop playing should your credits reach a certain amount, check this
box and put the amount in the window by using the arrows or key in the amount.
- Stop if credits get under ________
If you want to stop playing before all your credits are gone, check this box and
put the amount in the window by using the arrows or key in the amount.
- Auto buy delay
This enables you to delay the point at which the Auto Buy system purchases the cards.
Once your cards are purchased, the transaction cannot be cancelled. When you check
this box, the Delay Meter appears. Set this to "Shortest" if you want the system
to purchase cards as soon as they are available and to "Longest" if you want the
purchase made at the last possible moment. There are three intermediate settings.
If you decide not to purchase, you must click the "Pass" button or uncheck the Auto
Buy box before the transaction is made.
- Buy ________ more cards if prize goes over ________
This option adds the specified number of cards to the normal you would usually buy.
For example, if you have 5 cards to buy and set this option so that if the prize
goes over $20 you want to buy 3 more - then the option will trigger on prizes of
$20 or more and will actually buy 8 cards instead of 5. Adding more cards increases
your chances of winning.
It is important that you click APPLY to save any changes you make to the Auto Options.
If you do not your previous settings will remain in place. When you click APPLY,
the current Advanced Options will be set as your default for the next time you use
Auto Buy. Click CANCEL if you change your mind and decide not to make any changes.
As well as setting your game to Auto Buy your cards, you can also book ahead
for selected games in the Schedule. If you book ahead, there are two important
things to remember:
- When you Book cards using this feature, you will not actually purchase them until
the game starts, so you may cancel at any time before the start of the game.
- If you do not have sufficient funds in your account to purchase your booking when
the Booked game starts, no cards will be purchased. The system will not purchase
part of your booking.
How to Book Cards

the Members' Area

other days by clicking on the date. Dates which have games scheduled are underlined.
If a date is not underlined, games have not yet been scheduled for that date.
- When you click on a date, you will see a detailed, hour by hour schedule for that
If you hover over the title for each period - for example, "Nickels", you will see
a full description of the games taking place in that period - card prices, minimum

- On some periods, there will be an option to book ahead for those games, these are
indicated by a "Book" icon -
- If you wish to book games, click on the "Book it" icon to go to a page where you
can enter the number of cards you wish to book.

The Cashier pages are part of the Cashmill Bingo Member's site and will open in your
browser when you click this button. This is where you fund your account before playing,
or to add to your credits if you have used them up while playing.
How to fund your account:
- Click on CASHIER
- Select your preferred payment method
- Enter any account numbers that may be necessary and click ENTER

The area in the top left corner of the playing window displays the pattern or patterns
for the current game. The bingo pattern shows the winning combination of boxes that
you need to mark on one or more of your cards in order to have a bingo and win the
Patterns change from game to game - two successive games may or may not have the
same pattern. The pattern shown during a game is valid only for that game. Cashmill Bingo
also features multi-pattern games, where a single game will feature three
patterns in sequence, giving players up to three chances to win a prize.
Cashmill Bingo uses two types of patterns: static and moving. In a Static pattern,
the configuration of colored boxes does not change within a game. You must mark
a winning card with exactly this pattern. There is only one combination that works.
In a moving pattern the configuration changes more than once within a single game.
Marking any of the appearing configurations qualifies as a winning card. For example,
if the moving pattern is a horizontal line, you can claim bingo when you have any
of the rows, in any of the cards.
In multi-pattern games, each game consists of two or three patterns played in sequence.
Each pattern has its own prize, so one game can, potentially, have three winning
The pattern displayed on the screen will have two or three smaller patterns adjacent
to it. These are the patterns which will play in sequence from the top down. The
small arrow indicates the pattern currently being played. You can click on any of
the three small patterns to show the prize and jackpot for that pattern. If one
or more of the patterns has completed, clicking on that pattern will reveal the
winner's nickname in the black window at the bottom of the pattern area.
Current Ball and Last Balls Called
The game screen also displays the current ball that has been called. The ball shown
here changes with every drawn number. The speed at which balls are called may vary
among games but is always the same within a game. As the game progresses, the following
ball sequence is shown.
The line of balls leading out to the large called ball, shows the color of the forthcoming
balls. This is useful to consult if you are waiting for a particular number.
Every newly drawn ball takes the first position in the left of the Called Ball Display
and displaces the other balls to the right. In the example here,
four balls were drawn in the order: 11 - 65 - 26 - 35. The same area shows also
the number of called balls so far and the maximum number of balls to be called this
The Last Balls area is empty between games.
The screen also displays all balls called so far in the game on the number board.
When a number is called, it will blink on the number board and continue to blink
until the next number is called. Every ball, when called, appears first in the Current
Ball area and in the list of the Last Balls called.
The number board area has five rows, and each row is preceded by a letter from the
word BINGO. The numbers show up in the rows as follows: B - 1 to 15; I - 16 to 30;
N - 31 to 45; G - 46 to 60; O - 61 to 75.
The winners of each game are displayed in a panel that replaces the number board
at the end of a game. This shows the name of the last game winner(s), the number
of winning cards for each separate winner, and the amount of dollars that he or
she has won.
If you log in when a game is in progress, the cards area will display the message
"Game in Progress". Rather than waiting for the current game to end, you can enter
the Auto Buy section and create your settings to automatically buy cards.
When you have purchased cards (see Buying Cards
) your cards for the game appear on the game screen. The cards are shown before
the game begins so that you can change them if you like. All cards are generated
randomly by the server the first time you buy them. You will then keep the same
numbers until you decide to change your cards, when you new choice will become your
Changing cards is simple. If you don't like the numbers on one or more of your cards,
just click on them and, when they are highlighted, click on the Replace button.
Clicking on Replace without selecting a card will replace all of them at once.
As the time counts down to the next game, a timer will appear in the center of the
screen and the seconds to the next game will be counted down.
The settings for each game can be viewed by hovering your mouse cursor over the
Schedule Name under the Numbers Board. A description of the current schedule will
display in a pop-up.
When playing with more cards, navigation arrows appear in the right end of the card
area. Use these arrows to scroll up and down to see all your cards. Alternatively,
use the Zoom feature to view more cards at a time.
The bingo cards have three distinctive features: card number, numbered cells, and
border. The card number identifies the bingo card uniquely. The card numbers help
you distinguish among the cards in play and track the progress of every individual
Card numbers are especially useful when you play multiple cards in which the cards
constantly change their positions. Each card has five columns of five numbers each.
The columns are headed by the letters from the word BINGO. Every column may contain
only numbers from a limited set. The "B" column, from 1 to 15; the "I" column, from
16 to 30; the "N" column, from 31 to 45; the "G" column, from 46 to 60; and the
"O" column, from 61 to 75. The center cell of the card is given as a "free" number
- you can always use this cell when claiming bingo.
As game progresses, your cards will automatically sort themselves so that the card
nearest to bingo is at the top left of your card area.
The border of the card is an indicator of how close you are to claiming bingo for
that card. The color of the border displays the number of balls remaining to bingo.
The possible colors are four:
BLUE:you can win bingo in three balls.
GREEN:you can win bingo in two balls.
RED:you are very close, just one more
GOLD: You have bingo!
If you have the “Auto Bingo” box checked in the Auto section, bingo will be called
for you. If not, when your card turns gold, a message will appear that says: “Congratulations
you have bingo!!" If this message appears, hit the BINGO Button -but don't worry
if you can't, Cashmill Bingo ensures all players get their winnings, even if they
don't call Bingo!

Players: Displays how many players are playing in this game. The colored
area shows how many players are 3 away from bingo - BLUE, 2 away from bingo - GREEN,

players are just one ball away from a jackpot or prize.

purchase cards and will increase when you win.
Your total Credits will consist of both cash and bonus money you have earned from
making deposits, referring your buddies and in chat games. To see how much is cash
and bonus money, hover your mouse cursor over the Credit balance and a small pop-up
window will open showing your account currency, current Cash and current Bonus and
the amount of credits in Bonus Bank.
When you win a bingo, your credits are increased by the amount you have won. If
the number of your credits is smaller than the price of an upcoming game, for instance,
you have $2.50, and the game price is $3.00, you will not be allowed to play. To
add more credits, go to the Cashier page, by clicking the Cashier button, and follow
the screen instructions to fund your account.
Every time you make deposits with us, or introduce your friends to our game, or
just play our special games in chat, Cashmill Bingo will give you Cashmill Bingo Bucks
that you can use just like cash for purchasing more bingo cards or playing our side
games (restrictions on some games apply). When the number of your referral and chat
game bonuses exceeds a specific limit (see
Bonus Terms), the accumulated amount of Cashmill Bingo Bucks above that limit
goes to the Bonus Bank.
