Bingo has been a stalwart of British gaming since its huge rise in popularity during the 1960s. Dedicated Bingo Halls can be found up and down the country and although popularity dipped over the decades, with the rise of online Bingo, it has again come back into favour with the British Public.
Bingo is a relatively simple game of chance and probability. Players may be armed with a card or several cards or numbers. British game cards typically have 9 columns and 3 rows containing 15 numbers between 1 and 91.
Column 1 contains numbers 1 to 9 (or 10), column 2 contains numbers 10 to 19 (or 11 to 20), column 3 contains numbers 20 to 29 (or 21 to 30) and so on up to the last column which is numbered from 80 or 81 to 91. Game tickets are typically arranged in groups of 6 games as this will allow every number between 1 and 90 to appear across all size games. This means that if a player has opted to buy into all 6 games, they are guaranteed to strike off a number each time one is called.
The beauty of online Bingo is that ‘dabbing’ can be automated to save you time and prevent you missing any of those all important numbers.
When the numbers are called by the ‘caller’ at random they are either electronically generated at random or drawn from traditional bingo machine.
