Bingo Botched, Better or Enhances the Classics?

Bingo can be traced back to the 1500’s and the modern version that took the public by storm thanks to Hugh J. Ward that introduced the game at carnivals and fairs in the 1920’s in the United States. Erwin S. Lowe patented a card design in 1942 which is still used today.

The 75 ball bingo card consists of 5 rows across, 5 down with a Free space smack dab in the middle. Winning combinations consist of filling in 5 spots diagonal, vertical, horizontal, coverall and many creative patterns.

In the UK 90 ball bingo takes center stage among this community of players. The advantage and attraction of this version is there are three possible ways to win in a single game with 1 line, 2 lines and Full House.

90 and 75 ball bingo are without question the classic Bingo games that will live on forever. But why mess with a good thing or to put it differently if it ain’t broke why fix it?

Other variations have come into play with 80, 30, 50 and 40 ball bingo variations. The introduction of these games are widely available through online Bingo sites that have promoted these new versions.

Are they or will they ever replace the popularity of the classics we have adored throughout history? While these newer bingo games are entertaining a whole new generation of players my verdict is it can never outperform the greatest success of 75 and 90 ball games.
