In the U.S., bingo is simply a variant of the game of luck where each player chooses numbers on cards printed from a deck, and the number the game host draws from the bingo card reader at random. The cards themselves are called “bingo cards” in England. Bingo originated in the Old English game “Hundred pounder” which was a type of card game similar to gin.
Bingo is an online game played between computer-simulated players in a chat room or on a bulletin board. It originated in China. In the United States, the most common version of bingo is played in the form of bingo cards that can be printed on any office printer. A popular version of bingo is the version played in a bingo hall or a local bar. In this version, the word bingo is written on a regular card with the numbers that correspond to the numbers drawn.
The basic set up of the game requires four to six players. Each player has thirteen cards face down, and the possible bingo cards are laid out on the table in front of them. A participant is required to call out the words bingo (in Spanish) to the players before the presentation of the cards. This is done by touching the name of a player that has called out, or by raising one’s hand.
A game of bingo can be won by getting at least one card picked up off the cards in the middle of the line. A winning strategy is to get as many possible bingo cards picked up off the middle line as possible. Some players will raise their hands and request the bingo pattern wins. Most players will call out the word bingo when the possible bingo cards are produced in the middle of the line.
In some municipalities, playing Bingo is often required to play a game of United States lottery. In the states where bingo is seen as a way to win state lotteries, there are often sections of the pre-draw lists that require bingo players to show their bingo cards before they are allowed into the draw. Such bingo is often sponsored and administered by a state lottery. Winning a prize from the local lotteries may be the reward for participating in a state sponsored bingo game.
The rules of the game are posted on the Bingo site. Winning requires a number of different factors to be considered.
