Bingo is a game of chance where randomly drawn numbers are matched against numbers printed on a card or on a card that is on a computer. It is one of the easiest games to play. It takes about a minute to learn and provides a lifetime of fun! The Bingo game you are playing refers to a specific “pattern” you are working to cover. For example: “X” bingo refers to blacking out all squares in a diagonal “x” pattern from corner to corner.

The first person to have a card where the drawn numbers form a specific pattern win the game and calls out “bingo”. In most halls, players can either play the game on paper or on computers. Each bingo player receives a bingo card marked with a grid containing a unique set of numbers. In some countries there are also some blank spaces. The caller randomly selects a numbered ball from a container and announces the number to the players. If they find that number on their card, players mark the card. Players will come more skilled at the game and search the card for the called number in the time before the next number is called. Players on a computer that has numerous cards will simply type the number in the computer and it automatically finds the correct number on the computerized cards.
