The game bingo is thought to originate in Italy back in the 14th century it is a very popular game which is very easy to play. You select the number of cards required to play and with your dauber(pen) in hand you wait as the host/bingo caller calls numbers usually draw from a revolving ball/cage which has balls numbered 1-75 in the case of 75 ball bingo and 1-90 as in the 90ball bingo game.
As the numbers are selected in a random fashion you mark the corresponding number from your game ticket. Once you have marked all the numbers required in that particular game and if you are the first to do so you would call BINGO/HOUSE the game would stop play and you would claim relevant prize. Our at home bingo game you have the option of selecting which type of game format you prefer.
