Bingo is an easy and fun game that takes very little time to pick up and provides an immensely pleasurable experience. People flock to bingo halls on weekends to have a good time playing this wonderful and simple game and to meet new people to make new friends. The strong point about bingo is that it is not a game that encourages stiff competition or gives you complex rules and techniques that you need to practice and master over time. Rather, it gives you a simple game with no complexity which enables you to have a good time and relax without straining yourself too much. If you want to indulge in a good game of bingo, here are some basic rules –

  • You need to keep in mind that different bingo halls might have their own sets of variations of the game and its rules, and you need to be aware of the rules specific to the Hall that you are visiting.
  • A game of bingo starts when you buy a bingo card – a ticket with a grid of five rows and five columns, corresponding to the five letters in the word bingo.
  • Of the 25 spaces in the grid, 24 are filled with random numbers ranging from 1 to 75. Each card has an empty space exactly at the middle of the grid.
  • Every call has its own range of numbers. For example, usually houses random numbers between 1 and 15. The second column contains random numbers from 16 and 30, and so on.
  • The game commences when the bingo caller selects random numbers and calls them out one by one. If a number that is on your card is called out, you are required to mark it out on your card.
  • The winning bingo pattern is announced before the game commences and the player who completes the winning pattern first is declared the winner of the game.
  • The patent can differ from one game to the next or from one hall to another hall. Common patterns include straight lines, either vertical or horizontal, diagonal lines, a full house which includes all the numbers, or the outline of any symbol, digit or letter.

With these simple rules, it is very clear why the game of bingo is so enjoyable and provides relaxation of the body and mind.
