Bingo is an incredibly popular parlour game that has been played in various forms for centuries. While Bingo Balls are a relatively new addition to Bingo, Bingo as a game has not changed much since the 1500’s where it was played in Italy. While Bingo balls are typical now, the game used to be played predominantly with paper tickets and stubs.
Bingo is a game of chance, where random numbers are drawn from a bingo drum that has been spun by a game master. Players match the numbers called by the game master to the numbers on their card, which consist of 25 numbers in five rows of five numbers each. These numbers are normally printed on pieces of coloured paper or cardboard and are issued completely randomly.
As technology has gradually improved, the cards have become electronic, with the majority of newer casinos, where the game is incredibly popular, using electronic card systems instead. To win the game, a player needs to achieve a specific pattern from the numbers drawn. Upon doing this, the player will shout “Bingo” to notify the other players and game master that they have possibility won.
The card is then checked against the draw, with the winner being awarded a prize attached to the game. Players compete head on against other players, making it a fun game of chance.
What Are The Different Types Of Bingo Balls
While the game is standard to a degree, there is much a game master can do to add variety and excitement to the game. The game has evolved into multiple variations, often dictated by local law. At the same time, the variations are used to attract bingo players to the various forms of the game, attaching different prizes and rewards to the various variations of the game itself.
Crucial to the variations are the bingo balls. The bingo balls come in multiple colours, which can be attached to cards too. Likewise multiple sides with multiple numbers on specific balls are also quite common.
There are two major variations to the game, that being 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo. The variations in the number of bingo balls equates to different sized cards that are issued, all with different winning patterns associated with the game.
Bingo is an easy and relaxing game to play, enjoyed by people all over the world of all ages.
