Bingo is a form of gambling games, most popular in UK and among women, which are usually played in Halls. Now-a-days, Bingo games are also being played over the internet platform and are generally known as online Bingo.
Bingo Games – In Brief
There are many types of Bingo games available such as 75 Ball Bingo, 80 Ball Bingo and 90 Ball Bingo. Generally, in this game the player is required to buy cards that consist of 5 X 5 grids on which 25 numbers are placed in each grid section. Across the top of the grid card, B-I-N-G-O is written and thus the numbers are paired up with the letters. Once the players get the cards in their hand, the caller starts calling out the numbers. If the called number is present in the card of a player then he/she has to mark the space of the letter-number combination. The main aim of a Bingo player is to become the first player to get a pattern of numbers that have been called. The pattern could be vertical, diagonal, horizontal or any other pre-declared pattern.
In the early sixteenth century, the game of Bingo was first established. In Italy, the earliest version of Bingo games was played every week and the name of that game was “Lo Giuoco del Lotto d’Italia”. This concept of Bingo travelled all the way to America’s Atlanta in the early twentieth century and the name of the game was then “Beano”.
