Tickets are usually sold in strips of six, and each strip will contain all the numbers from 1 to 90.
Calling the numbers
The numbers in play are from 1 to 90. Each number may be called only once per game. The next number up is decided by an RNG (Random Number Generator) and called by the bingo caller.
When you are playing online, the RNG is a computer algorithm. In live games, a mechanical device like a drum spins the numbers around before each call.

Online, you can do it manually by clicking or touching the boxes on your screen. Or you can choose the auto-complete option and let the computer do it for you.
