How to play Bingo

Bingo is a game of complete chance wherein a player matches numbers which are preprinted on a 5X5 card with the number drawn by the host. If a player has numbers in the form of a row, then the player calls out “BINGO” to make everyone aware of a winning card. There are multiple variations of the game and variants of game rules. Therefore it is always an advantage to know about the rules of the particular hall where it is played.

The main process starts with the purchase of bingo tickets which are usually cards having a 5X5 grid on it. The five columns of the cards represent five letters of the game name ‘B’, ‘I’, ‘N’, ‘G’, ‘O’. The first row has numbers ranging from 1 to 15, second with 16 to 30, third with 31 to 45, fourth with 46 to 60 and the fifth row has numbers from 61 to 75. The game starts with the host calling out numbers randomly and if a player has numbers in the form of a row, then the player calls out “BINGO” to make everyone aware of a winning card which is then verified by the caller for a prize money or a jackpot. In some cases, winning pattern may be a line(horizontal or vertical) or it may be a full house depending upon the place the game is held.

Since its invention in 1929 bingo has evolved in multiple variations governed by different rules based on jurisdictions. One can have a free bingo game online and earn bingo bonus too.
