With Bingo taking place at brick and mortar Bingo halls around the world and at online Bingo halls, you'd better know how to play Bingo if you're going to get involved, and the good news is, it's an extremely easy game to play!
To get started with playing Bingo either in person or online, you need to grab your Bingo cards. Many Bingo halls allow you to play with any number of Bingo cards, starting with one, and usually going only as high as a maximum of 24 and all Bingo halls will have a price per card which you will need to play; however, sometimes there is a discount for players who choose to use multiple cards, like buy 2 get 1 free to reward those who up the ante.
Once you have your cards you need to use a card marker or a Bingo blotter to cover the free space in the middle of the card, and this will need to be completed for every single card that you're playing with. Once that's done, you simply need to wait for the Bingo host/caller to turn the Bingo ball that randomizes the numbers and letters which they will announce out loud. With online Bingo, the number and letter combinations will automatically be displayed on the screen (i.e. B-3), and you need to check each of your cards to see if those figures appear. Anywhere the letter and number combinations appear on your card, you need to use your markers or blotters to cover those spaces. If you are playing online Bingo and don't want to have to search each of your cards to mark them, you can have your gameplay made even easier since many online Bingo halls have an auto-blot option that ensures all announced figures are automatically marked so the whole game is virtually played out automatically.
In order to win at Bingo, you need to complete a winning Bingo pattern on at least one of your Bingo Cards. Often this is a straight line going horizontally, vertically or diagonally. However, in some cases Bingo cards that don't include boxes in a square shape may be distributed and specific patterns can be set at the beginning. When playing Bingo at a brick and mortar Bingo hall, when you have a winning pattern on at least one card you need to call out "Bingo!" With online Bingo, your prize money will be distributed at the end of the round according to your number of winnings. In order to win money at real money Bingo games, you receive part of the prize pool indicated at the beginning based on the number of Bingos you received, and in some cases, specific patterns might be worth more than others. The prize pool is of course split between all of the players who had winning combinations during the round.
Bingo is a fun game that couldn't be easier to play; it's appropriate for people of all ages, but naturally, for real money games, players must be the legal gambling age in their region in order to participate!
