A guide to everything that you would like to know about Bingo
How to classify the game?
While most people would love to legitimately call Bingo as a game of skill, the truth is that it is clearly a game of chance which is played regularly at famous casino worldwide. The element of luck is overwhelming strong in this game because the numbers that are called out by the game host are all random and you can never ever predict the pattern of the numbers being called out. Sometimes, the casinos also use computers to draw out random numbers for the game. This is done by special computer software that is specifically programmed for the casinos and other event management companies that specialize in hosting fun events including the popular game Bingo.
What do the Bingo cards look like?
Bingo cards are roughly 5 inches squares usually printed on thick card or paper. The game card has a 25 box grid printed on it.
Out of the 25 boxes, 24 boxes have a number between 1 and 36 written in and one box which is in the middle of the card is left empty.The host will call out a number and the player whose card has that number on it
has to strike off the number from his card with an ink dauber. With every number being called out, participants strike off that number from their respective cards.The game’s object is to strike off all the numbers in the card.
The player who strikes of all the numbers on his card the earliest has to get up and shout Bingo loudly from his place. The host or the floor assistant will come to him and check if there is no mistake in striking off the numbers
If the card is striked off correctly by him, he is declared the winner. The prize is brought to him and the game can continue in order to find the next winner. Bingo players who strike off all the numbers in one single line whether vertically, horizontally or diagonally are also eligible for prizes. But they have to be quick and nimble and shout Bingo as loudly as possible.
