What Is Online Bingo And How Do You Play It?
Have you played in-person bingo before? Of course you have! If not, the rules are fairly simple. The player is given a card with a selection of numbers on them. The caller reads out a series of randomly generated numbers from 1-100 and the players must mark these numbers off on their cards one by one. To win, you must mark off as many numbers as you can in particular locations depending on the round. If you a playing for a 'line', you must mark off all the numbers on a consecutive line. If you are playing for a 'house', you must mark off all the numbers on your card. To win, you have to mark off all these numbers in the correct locations before all your fellow players can do the same thing. Bingo is the perfect game for those who crave the excitement of edging towards a win!
The History of Bingo
Believe it or not, bingo has a long and varied history that stretches back further than you might think! Surprisingly, the first games of bingo were played in 16th century Italy where the game was called Il Gioco del Lotto d'Italia. By 1770, the game had found its way to the dining rooms of the French where it was played by the upper-classes with delighted wonder. America developed its own version of the game in the early 20th century. The early versions of the American version of bingo were known as 'beano', named for the beans that were used to mark off numbers on a card. Luckily it's now rare in modern iterations that you would need beans to play the game.
The spread of bingo had a lot of help from a surprising source. The local churches in America started to endorse bingo as a means of gathering more money for the parish. Although American laws during this period made gambling illegal in many states, often there were certain amendments to this law that made games of bingo legal as long as it was played under parish supervision.
