10 Bingo Hall Etiquettes

by Administrator 29. June 2019 13:34

Learning about bingo etiquettes is equally essential as knowing the rules of the game. Maintaining good etiquettes while playing bingo contributes to a pleasant experience and ensures the game progresses smoothly for all players. Bingo etiquettes involve mannerisms like the right tone for shouting bingo, preparing for the game, choosing seats, being silent when the game is on and more.

Listed below are 10 bingo hall etiquettes that players should imbibe:

  • Maintain Silence: Maintaining silence during the game is one of the most important bingo etiquettes. Bingo requires focus and attention for listening to the numbers being called out by the host. If you have any pressing doubts, be sure to clarify them before the game begins and not while it is on.
  • Non-smoking Area: Most bingo halls have designated non-smoking areas. Refrain from smoking there to avoid making non-smokers uncomfortable.
  • Call Bingo Loudly: Be attentive while playing bingo and shout out “Bingo” loud and clear when you complete a pattern.
  • Avoid False Bingos: Calling out “Bingo” halts the game for checking the accuracy of the caller’s bingo card. Before calling “Bingo”, be sure to check whether you have made a pattern or if you are mistaken. This is important as false calls disrupt the game’s rhythm and interrupt all players.
  • Do Not Alter Numbers: Maintain good ethics while playing a game of bingo by not altering the numbers on your card in order to win.
  • Avoid Too Much Movement: Be considerate about your fellow players by avoiding unnecessary movements in and out of the bingo hall. This not only irks other players but it also drags the pace of a game.
  • Do Not Sit On Booked Seats: The seat you choose to sit in should not be already booked by another player. Always confirm whether a seat you intend to occupy is available or not.
  • Respect The Caller: Address the caller respectfully and never use inappropriate language. If you feel the caller is too fast, too slow, or not loud enough, you should be polite while conveying the inconvenience being faced by you.
  • Mind Your Age: Adhere to age restrictions imposed by a bingo hall. Respect the rules set by the bingo halls and confirm the age limit before the game starts.
  • Do Not Repeat Numbers:  Resist the urge to repeat the numbers being called even if it helps you concentrate better. Your fellow players may find this habit distracting and irritating.

Facts About Bingo Daubers

by Administrator 18. September 2018 15:03

A bingo dauber is a pen used to mark the numbers being called during a game of bingo. Daubers can also be called dabbers or dobbers. They are an intrinsic part of bingo as a tool, an accessory and for some even their good luck charm.

Listed below are some interesting facts about daubers that every avid bingo player should know:

  • Characteristics Of A Dauber: A special characteristic of a dauber is a distinct round circle they make which looks like a bingo chip. It is a little plastic bottle with a sponge-tip that is filled with non-toxic and non-staining ink. Daubers usually contain around 45 ml of ink but are also available with a capacity of 80-120ml of ink which can last from 4 to 8 sessions of bingo without being re-filled.
  • History: Bingo originated in Italy in the 1500s and spread to parts of Europe in 1700s. During this period, players marked their cards with beans. In the early 20th century, when bingo made its way to North America and gained immense popularity, people progressed to using cards with sliding windows and brightly colored plastic disks. It was in the late 20th century that daubers came about.
  • Types Of Daubers: Daubers are available in a variety of themes, colors and shapes to suit different personalities. They can also be customized to reflect your personality. There are disposable daubers, novelty daubers, plain daubers, daubers with different nibs e.g. simple round nibs or nibs with the shape of the sun, stars, moon, etc.
  • A Good Bingo Dauber: A good dauber’s ink is transparent and flows freely. One should be able to see the numbers after they’ve been marked. The dauber should be a big and colorful one. In the end, it should feel good to you.
  • Types Of Inks For Daubers: In addition to the affordable standard bingo ink, one can also use fluorescent daubers in magenta, purple, pink, aqua, lime green, coral, teal, orange, etc. These colors are a favorite among younger players. The colors are non-toxic and can be safely used by players who have kids around. An interesting observation regarding daubers is that the color used by many players is purple.
  • Where To Get Daubers From: Daubers cannot be found at stores. They are available at bingo halls and on online portals as well.

Steps To Play Bingo Effectively

by Administrator 21. August 2018 13:40

Bingo is often considered a game of luck. However, there are certain factors which make some players more effective than others. Players who take these steps seriously and follow them religiously have greater chances of winning. Anyone interested in raising the bar of success at the next bingo game can do so by following the following steps:

  1. Prepare: The first and foremost step to a successful bingo game is to prepare yourself for the game. This requires the player to arrive at least half an hour before the game starts. There are players who arrive one or two hours prior to the beginning of a session. On arriving, purchase your cards, relax and talk to those around, have some refreshments and set up your space. Everything you may need during the game should be close by e.g. your phone, a drink, etc.
  2. Arrange Important Supplies: Supplies like highlighters, bingo daubers, masking tape, glue stick, and even lucky charms can greatly increase the chance of success in the game. Bingo daubers help players mark the numbers which have been called. Masking tapes help secure the cards together so that you don’t have to waste time adjusting them. With all your essential supplies around, you are likely to be less distracted.
  3. Choose A Seat: It is believed that choice of a seat in a game of bingo has a huge impact on the performance of player. It is best to sit close to the caller. This will help you remain focused and listen to the numbers clearly. Try to sit on a seat with minimal distraction in order to stay away from talkative players and friends.
  4. Be Alert: It is crucial to remain alert during a bingo game as missing out on even one number has the potential of pushing you further away from winning. A little bit of light exercise prior to a game of bingo can be helpful in stimulating your senses. Also Take scheduled breaks.
  5. Useful Strategies: There are certain strategies for making a bingo game more effective. Some strategies are:
  • Play with more cards or buy few cards and play more games.
  • Use a highlighter to mark your cards in special pattern games.
  • Choose cards with not many common numbers
  • Select cards with an even distribution of numbers and a symmetric order (Granville’s strategy)
