An introduction to the game of Bingo

Gambling always involves luck, along with a little bit of patience and lots of concentration. Bingo is one such game that works not only on the above principle, but also includes loads of fun. It is also totally addictive and can easily get its grip on you.

Traditionally, when playing Bingo, each player is given a sheet with six cards on it. Each of these cards has 27 spaces which are grouped in 3 rows, each with nine columns. There are 90 numbers in total on these cards, without repetitions anywhere else on your card. This varies a lot and bingo cards with 5 rows and 5 columns are also common.

There are a number of different rules and bingo game types. For instance a common one is to get all the numbers on one row, whereupon you can shout “BINGO” – this is often done automatically in online bingo. The game sometimes continues until someone gets every number on their card, which is classed as a “Full House”.

This game requires a lot of coordination between your eyes and ears, since you need to locate and mark the numbers called out before the next number is called. Once you meet the criteria for that particular game type, you may have to click a button so that you can win the prize.

Before the advent of online Bingo, traditional Bingo was played in the Bingo halls where many players played the game at the same time, creating tension and loads of fun both at the same time. A similar atmosphere can be recreated on online bingo with virtual bingo halls and online competitions.
