How to Play Bingo:
is a popular game that is enjoyed by millions of
people worldwide. Thanks to the internet, the game
isn't just limited to bingo halls anymore. You can now
play the game of bingo online anytime you feel like
it. There used to be a time when you had to fight
through traffic and hope you got to the bingo hall in
time to get a good seat. Those days are gone. Now you
can play in your pajamas in the middle of the night if
you choose to do so. But perhaps you are new and don't
know exactly how to play the game of bingo. Well let's
get you filled in on what the game of bingo is about
and how it is played.
To play bingo you buy a card with numbers on it. The card is a 5X5 grid that has the letters B-I-N-G-O at the top. Numbers are then drawn at random. For instance, the number B-6 means that you would look for a number 6 in the B column of your card. The numbers are called until one player gets BINGO. That is a line with five numbers in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row. There are 75 total numbers in American Bingo and 90 in the Australian and British version of Bingo.
The bingo card contains one free space and 24 numbered spaces. All numbers on the bingo cards are random. The numbers are as follows: Column B = 1-15. Column I = 16-30. Column N = 31-45. Column G = 46-60. Column O = 61-75. This means that for column B any number from 1 to 15 can appear there.
Each bingo card you get will be unique. You can play multiple cards at a time to increase your chances of winning. Prizes can vary greatly and it depends where you are playing. Stakes can be very high or they can be low. If you choose to buy into a higher stakes game, you will get a much bigger prize if you win than you would have if you participated in a low stakes game.
Bingo is a fun game to play. It has been enjoyed for ages and is now taking online gaming by storm. Now that you know how to play, you can get started in the fun with everybody else. Remember, thanks to the internet you can now find a bingo game at any time of the day. Have fun!
