How to play bingo?

30 March 2010

Bingo is a beautiful game of luck, which involves patience, rapid coordination between hearing and searching out the numbers and lots of fun. As all gambling it is totally addictive and you should be careful of its grip on you!

In BINGO, each player will get a sheet, which has six cards with a total of 90 numbers. On each one of these cards, you will find 27 spaces grouped in 9 columns x 3 rows format. Each number is unduplicated; hence, it will not be repeated anywhere else in the sheet.

What you have to do is, coordinate the numbers that are called out by the host with what you have on our sheet, aiming at filling up a pattern reading BINGO. The pattern would be announced at the beginning of the game, so you have to be careful to know what pattern you are looking out for. The bingo cards have the B-I-N-G-O letters on rows and numbers running as a column. A host would call out a letter-number combination, which you would have to mark on your sheet. For example if I-34 is called, you will have to look at the I column down to search for number 34. In case you have it, you place a market on it, and so on.

Your aim would be to cover the prescribed pattern with the BINGO letters, by coordinating the letters and numbers called. The patterns can be anything like, U shape, T shape, etc, though it usually is horizontal or vertical. As soon as you get the pattern, you should shout “BINGO” and you get the prize. In case there are others who shouted at the same time as you, the prize will be shared among all winners.

BINGO is usually played in special halls where many players can play at the same time. The actual fun is the tension building up seeing other players closer and closer to “BINGO” finish line. However, with the advent of the Internet, BINGO has gone online as well. There are many ways to play on the net, though the basics remain the same. You will have to complete a given pattern before anyone else in order to win. Over the net, you need not “shout” the computer will flash it out for you. Some online games also have chat attached to the games where you can speak with other players online and have fun right from your home, office or any other place where you can get on the net. Chatting is a bit distracting though.

With online BINGO your cards are randomly selected by the computer and you can play with a great number of cards sometimes as many as 100 or more. Ordinarily you will need no more than three or four cards. A display board or a caller will flash your BINGO numbers and you will need to fill the pattern displayed to win the game. Some online games will have the computer automatically search and fill the numbers for you. Some people find this automation a kill-joy but some actually love the fact that all they have to do watch for the “BINGO” flash!!! Now that you know how to play online bingo it's time to find out where you should play your bingo games.
