Many faces of bingo

Most of the people are familiar with bingo and know how to play it. But perhaps not all of them know that there can be much more to bingo than what you can find in a local bingo hall.

For most of us, bingo is a game played with 75 or 90 numbered balls, which are drawn randomly and the players have to keep a track of each drawn number and seek and mark it in their bingo cards. The player who achieves a pattern required in a given game should shout “bingo!” and thus let the caller and the other players know about his win.

But the fun doesn’t end there. In a quick shot bingo game the numbers are pre-drawn and then players compare their cards with the picked numbers. Then, if one or more players get a chosen winning combination they are declared winners and receive a prize. Such bingo rules make the game faster, though in a way deprived of the whole number calling ritual.

Last but not least, we should not forget the most popular recently variant – online bingo. While rules of this game are the same, as in a regular bingo, numbers are “drawn” by a random number generator and then automatically marked on cards of the players, leaving them more time to spend playing side games or chatting in lively chat rooms. Because, maybe apart bingo slot machines, playing bingo is not only about winning, but also about having fun and enjoying good company.

And don’t forget that the online casinos also offer the game Keno which is very similar to bingo providing lots of fun and great prizes.
