Bingo

23 05 2011

Bingo is possibly one of the funnest games that I have played, think about it, everyone, even those that don’t play often who take the lotto still stare at the TV with hope and anticipation as the numbers are called out. Now imagine that this can be done with a far greater chance of winning and all day, you don’t have to travel to a bingo venue you can just play online bingo if you would prefer.

Its a simple game to play and basically you have a grid to play which is normally 5 rows x 5 columns and of course you pick your numbers and let the matches happen vertical horizontal or at  a criss cross, you get the picture it is easy and fun, if you don’t just check out the rules. Its not just for old people and with the online bingo promotions that I see all over you can just get the picture at how much this game is growing.

There are two main different types of bingo and those are ones played with 75 balls and 90 balls, the 75 ball in normally played in the US and Canada, while the 90 ball is played in Australia and the United Kingdom, but there places where this can vary of course. Many versions conclude the game when the first person achieves a specified pattern from the drawn numbers, usually in a straight line or at least with the games I have played, Then the winner usually has to Shout out the word “Bingo!”, this can be embarrassing especially if you scream like a girl hence why I play online Bingo. The numbers which are called in a game of bingo may be drawn utilizing a number of methods to randomly generating the ball call, now obviously with computer technology this has made it all the more easy.

You can’t really say you are good at bingo as there is very little you can do to influence or predict the outcome at Bingo. Bingo is a game of luck and is played primarily for fun, well that’s why I play it, you get a rush like you do when you go bungy jumping as you hit that final number. It may be seen as a game that is played by old people and the fact that my grandmother did teach me fits the stereotype, but it is a game that really is going in the younger generation and in the gambling community, so why not give it a bash.

I am going to the fun capital of the world and I plan to love every second, all I can say is that they better have Bingo or I am getting straight back on that plane….lol
