Play Bingo Online

To play Bingo online is the newest gaming opportunity,
online free bingo is being enjoyed by an ever-increasing number of players throughout the world. We've uncovered the history of Bingo, and two great places to play Bingo online;

History of Bingo

Bingo as we know it today is a descendant of the Italian Lottery, created early in the 16th Century. As Lotto was developed in Europe each player was dealt one card with a selection of numbers from 1 to 90 marked on the card, not dis-similar to the modern day Bingo card.

A token would be drawn from a cloth bag by the caller and, as today it would be read aloud and the players would cover the numbers that were on their own card. The first player to have completely covered a horizontal row was the winner.

There have been many variants of Lotto, and Bingo developed for educational purposes. As is the case with games such as Dominoes, the numbers are replaced with animals, or letters, to help children learn through play. This type of game helps children to learn to count, recognise images, and also read.

"Beano"

In the late 1920's an American by the name of Edwin Lowe visited a carnival. One of the attractions had a huge amount of interest, a variation of the original Lotto game called Beano where instead of today when a number is called out one marks their card towards winning the game in Beano the actual "marking" was done by the placing of a bean over the called out number, thereby creating re-usable cards without any markings on them.

Once a player had completed a line on their card by covering each of the numbers with a bean - in whichever direction - a big shout of "BEANO" was to be heard.

From "Beano" to "Bingo"

Mr Lowe decided he would try out this new game, even though he was unable to get a game at the carnival. He purchased dried beans, a numbering stamp and some cardboard for the cards. One of the players, a lady, became so excited that when the winning bean was placed on her Beano card she shouted "BINGO" instead of "BEANO" - and that is where the name Bingo originates.

Mr Lowe brought the Bingo game to market, and there were many copies out there too but it wasn't for a few months until he realised that for the game to have many players, and therefore many cards, he would need a system of cards that would help to ensure that there were not so many winners in each game. For this help he enlisted Professor Leffler, a Mathematics Professor, who was charged with devising a system with six thousand Bingo cards without repeating number groups - no small feat indeed. In fact Bingo is accredited with turning the Professor insane after devising the six thousand card system so the next time you hear somebody mention they are Bingo mad have a little smile to yourself about the above!

Bingo of the Sexes

Did you know that Bingo is the only gambling activity in which women are more likely to play than men. According to recent studies 70% of players are women and only 30% of players are men.

There are many places to see online bingo sites reviews, to research a bingo site before you decide to invest any time or money into it.
