What is Bingo? It’s a simple word with a complicated history. In the United States, bingo evolved from the Old World card games played by the British during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. The British version of bingo was known as “bacarrat” and later “billiard.” In the early nineteenth century, bingo developed out of a need for new games and gambling, and later, as an international game, with its own set of rules and regulations.
DescriptionIn the United States, bingo evolved into a game of luck where each participant matches numbers on cards with the pre-printed numbers that the game master draws at random. There are no cards or coins involved, so there is a low risk of fraud or cheating. The game can still be played in some areas free of charge, but it is essentially played at any bingo hall. In Europe, however, bingo is played in most state-funded bingo halls and is often sponsored by local municipalities.
Rules & Strategy The goal of bingo is to be the first person to call “Bingo! . “. Each player starts with a hand of cards and players mark off numbers from the top of the deck before the name of the game is called.
There are two types of Bingo: mechanised and live. Mechanised is played in a club environment with a small prize money prize; live bingo is played by the players individually. With mechanised Bingo, players mark off cards manually or electronically, and only one person calls the play word before the name of the game is called, and then the player receives bonus points for their performance. Live Bingo is played with a single player machine and the bonus points for winning are added up from the last point gained by the player.
