Bingo 101 What You Absolutely Need to Know About


It is quite surprising and amusing at the same time that most of the people aware of the game "bingo" still associate it with some old ladies. 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. Another reason for the game being popular is that it has elements that defy to be resisted by human temptations: making money and having fun.

The game of bingo can be played by all age groups and attracts them from any ethnic origin as it can be exciting and can take an express speed, with its basic concept being that players have a task of filling certain area of their card or cards and blurting out the word "bingo".

Before getting to know the general rules of the game, lets start on a high note. In this game every wins once that is to say in every regular bingo players life the probability of a win is very high and it is your lucky day if the stakes are high.

Bingo is relatively easier to learn and play but nevertheless there's no harm in knowing the general rules. Every player has to have minimum of one card on which there are 25 slots with numbers written in them and one being a free space. 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. There are various tournaments also organised in this game and they cater to the requirements as poised by different strata of people, some may like to play it big like in tournaments with bigger jackpots as the grand prize or on the other hand they may like to settle with smaller low level tournaments with the prize varying accordingly.

I think one might as well be excited to try this game already. So, let's play!!
