The reality, however, suggests that the situation is quite opposite. The game is getting on well with younger people as well and that it is now a very popular game played and enjoyed by both males and females.

Bingo is relatively easier to learn and play but nevertheless there's no harm in knowing the general rules.

A player can also have more than one card in the likely event of increasing the probability of his or her win. There will be a rotating barrel with numbered balls in it, which the announcer will take out one by one and announcing the number on the balls, which is taken out of the barrel. The players mark the numbers announced if it is in their card. Like this the game continues till the player has marked the five slots in a column, row or a diagonal. When this happens the player is said to have struck a bingo and has to say the word. The marked numbers are then announced to check the accuracy of the card and once verified to be authentic the game ends and a new one begins and the players have to clear the marks on their card.

The game is usually played in clubs or large halls, though there being an ample amount of opportunity of one being able to play it throughout one's country. The game can also be played online, as there are quite a quantum of sites offering the facility or with the help of bingo software.
