Many people have the perception that Bingo is a game played by little old ladies in a nursing home. However, this is far from the truth!
Lo Giuoco del Lotto D’Italia was Bingo’s original name in 1530, and it was played every Saturday in Italy. Frenchmen became enamoured with the game in late 1770, when it received the name “Le Lotto”. The game was originally called Beano, but a New York salesman renamed it Bingo.
In the United States, a bingo ticket’s number is randomly chosen from 75 possible numbers, whereas in the United Kingdom, it is randomly selected from 90 possible numbers. Many bingo sites offer a variety of bingo variants accompanied by great bonuses, making online Bingo an increasingly popular form of entertainment.
There is no learning curve in Bingo, it is an easy game to play with the whole family, and it is based on luck.
