Bingo History

Bingo is an old gambling game which was named beano at the time of its invention as small red beans were used to cover the numbers, and in the case somebody won he had to say beano so that he would be announced as a winner. Bingo was originally invented in Italy, and after this it was played in France and later Germany, and at the beginning of the twentieth century it became widespread in the United States of America to gain popularity later all over the world. As a general rule, bingo sites are available on the world wide web, and everyday new bingo sites are being created and people who do not prefer to visit bingo halls can always enjoy this wonderful game from their homes.


This game is undoubtedly widespread in the United Kingdom, and a lot of UK bingo sites are accessible to gamblers who are thinking of spending great moments and having some fun. Individuals who usually determine to play the game without risking their bankrolls can visit the free bonus bingo sites on which they would be given signup bonuses at the moment they create free accounts, besides, customers in general will be eligible for initial deposit bonuses if they choose to play for money. By and large, bingo casino is available for all individuals in most countries and there are a lot of bingo halls wherein this social activity usually takes place.

In any bingo session, every gambler has to compete against the other players and this can create some wonderful atmosphere and encourage a lot of newcomers to try this game. In a standard game of bingo the numbers one through seventy five are used, and generally speaking, the card will be divided into five columns named as B, I, N, G, O from left to right, and on every card there should be some free space which is normally considered as filled and this means that players do not have to mark any spot within such space. In some other variants of the game and specifically U Pickem game, every gambler will be given three cards containing all of the seventy five numbers, and all the player has to do is choose the numbers he wants to play and then daub them according to the numbers drawn or announced by the caller.

In the typical bingo card, the column B usually contains numbers one through fifteen, column I will contain the numbers sixteen through thirty, and column N will have the numbers thirty one through forty five, while the column G will contain the numbers forty six through sixty, and last column O will contain the numbers sixty one through seventy five. The advent of the new technology had enabled the usage of the random number generator systems which are implemented in most bingo games and can control the selection of the balls electronically. Older methods were either dependant on blowing air to mix the balls which were simply ping pong balls with the printed numbers on them, or dependant on turning a cage in order to mix the balls.
