He knows Bilbo has 'a' magic ring, though he is not sure of its nature just yet; it is a suspicion he needed to confirm.

Gollum guesses that Bilbo has found his magic ring.

he tells them because they needed to know

It is possible the Ring had already begun to affect Bilbo, and he would not want any to know what he had, and therefore try to take it from him.

What did the magic of the sword tell bilbo

Bilbo uses his magic ring and his wits. He follows Gollum with the ring on and is able to leap over him to get to the back door. There he squeezes through, though he lose his buttons doing so.

For one, he provides sure entertainment. Also, he makes it more difficult for Bilbo to just walk away with the Ring. And it is because of Gollum that Bilbo realizes it is a magic Ring he has stumbled across.

Thorin does not give Bilbo a ring.

Bilbo was recruited by Gandalf to join the dwarves' mission as a master thief. Bilbo does not tell his friends about the magic ring because he wants to earn their respect as a thief. Alternatively, it could be the ring's power already beginning to assert its influence over Biblo. In the end, however, Bilbo does tell the dwarves about the ring and that it has the ability to make him invisible, which was what enabled him to escape Gollum, the goblins, and to sneak into the dwarves' camp while Balin was on watch.

They feel more safe knowing that Bilbo just saved all of their lives. And they treat him with more respect.

He was able to vanish using his magic ring before he was found.

This is a bit unclear as one could argue that Gandalf guessed that Bilbo had a magic ring almost the moment he heard the tale of Gollum after Bilbo escapes. We do not know when exactly he begins to suspect that the ring could be the ONE ring, but he finds out for certain in Fellowship of the Ring after testing it in fire.

Gollum, believing that Bilbo already knows the way out of the cave, leads an invisible Bilbo to the exit. Gollum also believed Bilbo to have his ring (his precious), so he fervently searched for him. However, Bilbo not knowing the way out of the tunnels, indeed found freedom by following Gollum. And indeed Bilbo did have the magic ring and was able to follow Gollum undiscovered because the ring made him invisible.

He finds a magic ring. It is only later that it is discovered to be the One Ring.

The Ring helps Bilbo become invisible when he wears it.

No, Bilbo left the ring to Frodo. Frodo makes it to Mordor with the One Ring.

Because the ring is turning him selfish, making himself think that they might take it away if he tellls them about it. He wants to keep the ring all to himself.

Many people knew that the One Ring existed, but they didn't know that Bilbo had it, except for Gollum. Gandalf suspected that Bilbo had the ring, but he wasn't sure.

The ring gave Bilbo the power of invisibility that's y Gollum couldn't see him

The elves were departing for the Undying Land, the destruction of the One Ring signalled the end of the age of magic and elves. As a reward for their bravery and as a way of healing the physical and mental scars caused by bearing the ring, Frodo and Bilbo were invited along.

There were two editions of The Hobbit that were written. Prior to the Lord of the Rings, the ring itself had no history, and so Bilbo actually did reveal that he obtained the ring from Gollum. Later, when the Ring's malevolent history was dabbled into, Tolkein realized Gollum would never give up the ring willingly, and re-wrote the chapter in later editions to reflect that Bilbo more or less stole the ring. Canonically, Bilbo told Gandalf and the Dwarves that it was a prize for winning the riddle game. Gandalf had his suspicions, however, and managed to get the true story from Bilbo much later. The fact that Bilbo would lie about the entire incident struck Gandalf as alarming, since Hobbits weren't prone to such things as lying. One might say that the reason Bilbo lied was due to the effect that the Ring was having on him.

Bilbo said, talking to himself, "what have i got in my pocket?" (it was the Ring). Gollum thought it was a riddle and Bilbo decided to make it one. he gave Gollum three chances to guess and gollum lost after four. then gollum went "to get something" (it was the ring), and Bilbo thought he was abandoned and left with the ring on. Gollum thought Bilbo knew the way out and he wanted to follow him, realizing Bilbo had the ring. Bilbo saw Gollum racing towards the gate and followed him to safety.

Bilbo finds a magical ring. This ring allows you to turn invisible.

Bilbo slipped on the ring and was invisible.
