Bingo: A Perfect Leisure Activity

by Administrator 24. February 2012 10:10

Truly said, “the most enjoyable moments of our life are the ones in which we are most engaged”.

Instead of wasting our leisure time watching television, surfing the web, eating and sleeping, getting involved in active leisure is a smart option.  Active leisure refers to the recreational and fitness activities which involve the exertion of both physical and mental energy. However, there are certain leisure activities which involve no physical activity, but do require significant mental effort. The best example is the game of bingo played in bingo halls. 

Bingo is one of the most popular games played across the globe, particularly in the United States. This game is played in large bingo halls which have mushroomed all over the state. When players play bingo in bingo halls, they get an opportunity to meet their friends and interact with new people. This game is for every age group. Whether you are an unemployed, employed or a retired individual, bingo halls are best places to spend quality time and relax.

The game of bingo is very simple. The players have to mark off numbers on the bingo ticket as they are randomly called out by the host. A bingo ticket usually contains twenty-seven numbers arranged in three rows and nine columns. The players are supposed to achieve a winning combination and shout out ‘BINGO!’ The first one to complete the combination wins the game.

Play Bingo And Stay Young!

by Administrator 17. February 2012 09:30

Today, almost every one of us is obsessed with staying young. We opt for several scientific methods like exercising, intellectual stimulation, meditation and also a number of surgeries like Liposuction, Botox etc. Stress and hectic life schedule are the main reasons why a person starts looking older than his/ her age.  Bingo has emerged as one of the best stress busters for people who want to relax and spend quality time. 

Bingo, also known as housie, is very relaxing and fun filled game. It requires a sharp and fast brain to locate the numbers being called out within a quick span of time. This energizes the brain, boosts the concentration power and flow of thoughts and energy. If you delay in locating the numbers being called out, you tend to lose your chance of winning the game.

Bingo is specially beneficial for the elderly people. As their age advances they encounter blood-thinning which reduces the brain reflexes and slows down the brain and body functioning. For them the game of bingo keeps the mind alert and fresh.

However, keeping up the pace with other players and the host calling out the numbers is very important. This creates excitement and competitive spirit among all the all players and makes them compare their energy levels with any youngster. This further boosts the alertness and sharpens the focusing levels.  

Bingo is also called a community game because it is a common game at churches, social functions, and other places involving large gatherings. You can do away with your loneliness and catch up with lots of your friends at such places. This not only saves you from boredom but also helps you in keeping a healthy mind as well as body.

Common Terminology Used In Bingo Halls

by Administrator 6. February 2012 08:15

We all know that every game has its own jargon which facilitates easy communication amongst the players while the game is being played.

Bingo is no exception. This game has a number of peculiar terminologies which are used by the bingo players. Some of them have been mentioned below:

  • Breaking the bubble: The bubble refers to the least number of balls which are required to complete the bingo pattern. Whenever a player reaches bingo using the least number of balls to complete the bingo pattern, it is termed as ‘breaking the bubble’.
  • Wild numbers: These numbers enable the players to start with multiple called numbers.
  • Ready/Waiting: Whenever a person is just one number away from completing the bingo pattern and win the game, he/ she are said to be ready, waiting, cased or set.
  • Jumping the gun: When a player shouts ‘bingo’ before having a valid bingo or out of eagerness of the next number to be called out, the situation is called jumping the gun.
  • False alarm: It is very similar to jumping the gun. Whenever a player calls bingo and has not completed the bingo pattern, it is termed as false alarm/bongo/social error. It often happens when the players mishear the called out number.
  • Standard:  The numbers ending with the second digit of the first number called out is a standard number.
  • Forward/backward: This refers to the numbers which are either beginning or ending with the wild numbers.
  • Crying number: Once the game of bingo is wrapped up and is officially closed, the numbers which would have been drawn next are termed as crying numbers.
  • Wrap up: This term refers to the last game of a session.
