How bingo halls work?

Was introduced to bingo online and I've never really tried playing the game in halls. Just wanted to know how the game works there.

The major difference between online bingo and bingo in brick-and-mortar halls is the setting. The games are mostly similar, the only difference is you get to interact with other players face-to-face when you visit a hall.

Bingo halls are scattered across various cities and countries. There are community centres as well as arcades that host bingo games. There, you will see an actual caller in the centre stage and an actual cashier's desk where you can buy tickets. It is also fun to play in traditional halls as you will be surrounded by people who are excited to win a prize. 

Another difference is the cost of playing. The prices of tickets online tend to be lower. On the other hand, at an average, you will be spending at least £20 a night at a traditional bingo hall. While free bingo games are available online, at bingo halls, you have to pay for everything. 

When you visit a traditional bingo hall, your choices will be limited. Keep in mind that most of these halls mainly host 90-ball bingo and 75-ball bingo. The games are also by schedule, so you can't just go to a hall in the middle of the night and play.

There are also jackpot prizes in bingo halls. However, they could not be as big as the ones offered online. Progressive jackpots are also available but the contributors to the pool are fewer.
