The game ancestry dates back to 1530, a lottery game still played in Italy –“Lo Giuoco del Lotto d'Italia”. The game reached France in the late 1770’s and captured the fancy of the intelligentsia. In France it was called “Le Lotto” in which card with three horizontal rows and nine vertical columns were used. 1800’s, the game crept into Germany and here it was used for improving a child’s mathematics, spelling and history skill. In 1929, the game made its way to North America and was named as ‘beano’ by a carnival pitchman.
Edwin S Lowe, a New York Toy Salesman gave the name “bingo” when he heard someone misspell “beano” as “bingo”. Edwin Lowe came across the game “Beano” at a carnival near Atlanta, Georgia. The game then came to be played in one of the churches of Pennsylvania by the priest to raise money. But with only 24 combinations the Priest found that there were many winners. Edwin then hired Carl Leffelr, a Columbia University mathematics professor to increase the number of combinations in a bingo card. Leffler invented about 6,000 different bingo cards and it is said that he went insane after that.
Lowe published Bingo’s first Instruction Manual. He then went on to publish a newsletter, The Blotter to about 37,000 subscribers. By 1934, Lowe’s firm had around 1000 employers working hard to keep up with the demand and 64 presses printing 24 hours a day. The largest Bingo game was played in New York’s Teaneck Armory with 60,000 players.
Playing of bingo is like a lottery game. The game is played using cards divided into numbered and blank squares. Every player purchases one or more cards. Each card has a selection of numbers from 1 to 75. The numbers in the “B” column are between 1 and 15, in the”I” column between 16 and 30, in the “N” column (containing four numbers and the free space) between 31 and 45, in the “G” column between 46 and 60, and in the “O” column between 61 and 75.  The numbers are called and the player searches their cards for the numbers and cross it out. The player has to be very fast to find the number and tick it off as there is a very little time gap between the callings of two numbers. In online gambling, most of automatically find the number in the player’s card and tick it out for the player so the player has no worry of finding the number.  In online bingo gaming, the bingo cards are selected randomly for the player. Most of them give 3 or 4 cards. A caller or banker picks numbers randomly. The first player to achieve a card or a line, shouts out” Bingo” and happily collects the game money. Online bingo games have caller or display boards.
The winner pattern varies starting with the basic straight line (diagonal, horizontal or vertical). Other patterns are the four corners or shape like A, T etc. the caller or the banker calls out the specific pattern before the start of the game. In online casino’s, the pattern will be displayed or mentioned.
Bingo is purely a game of luck. Just make sure the choice of the casino is right and enjoy the game!!
