The History of Bingo
Bingo’s history is fiercely debated, but many believe it was invented in Southern Europe and eventually crossed the Channel in the 16th century. The century that witnessed the bloody conclusion of the Hundred Years’ War, the inevitable collapse of the Eastern Roman Empire, and the unrivalled genius of Leonardo da Vinci also birthed one of this country’s most popular pastimes.
These Renaissance-era games eventually gave rise to state lotteries, used by Kings and Queens to generate funds for the war effort. In the 1900s, they inspired an American carnival game known as “Beano”, and it’s from here that modern bingo really began to take shape.
Beano was played with numbered cards on which players would place beans. When the cards were full, the call of “Beano!” would bring a halt to festivities, prompting a quick check, a prize, and the commencement of yet another game. Beano eventually became Bingo when it was commercialised by American toy salesman Edwin S. Lowe in 1930.
According to legend, the name “Bingo” was a happy accident stemming from a minor misunderstanding. After discovering the game of Beano at a local carnival, Lowe is said to have arranged a quick game with friends, only for the eventual winner to mishear the rules and yell “Bingo” upon completing her card.
It makes for an interesting story, but the name had already been in use elsewhere, including here in the UK, and Lowe may have taken inspiration from these shores. The exact origin of the term is unclear, but what we do know is that modern bingo card designs were patented by Lowe in the early 1940s, and by the 1950s this game could be found throughout the United Kingdom.
Some fifty years later, the first online bingo games were developed, riding a wave of online gaming popularity orchestrated by developers like Microgaming and Playtech and that’s just about when we came along…

For a limited time only, Bingo Games is offering new players 10 Free Spins on Diamond Strike on registration. No Deposit is required but players will need to register a valid debit card. T&Cs apply, 18+ Only.
How Many Numbers are in a Game of Bingo?
Numbers vary from 75 to 90, with some (usually online brands) offering less common variants such as 80 ball bingo! In the UK, 90-ball bingo is one of the most common and popular forms.
How Do You Play Online Bingo?
Your numbers will almost always be marked off automatically (varies from brand to brand), so you don’t have to worry about making a costly mistake. Some sites do still offer the option to switch off ‘auto daub’, in case you want a workout with your mouse, trackpad or touchscreen, clickety-click! If all your numbers are called first, you’ll win, it’s as simple as that, making online bingo far easier to play than its offline counterpart. Interested in setting up your own virtual game of bingo?

Can You Actually Win Money on Online Bingo?
Of course! Bingo players walk away with jackpots every single day that they’ve won playing at various online bingo sites.
In What Bingo Games Can You Win Real Money?
Generally, the titles that don’t include the words ‘free bingo’ are played for real money. Of course, you should check out the terms and conditions relating to the game in question at the relevant bingo brand.
What are the Odds of Winning at Online Bingo?
It depends entirely on how many cards you buy and how many players are in the game. Unlike lotteries, someone has to win in a game of bingo, so the fewer players there are and the more cards you have, the greater your chances of success will be. But remember, it only takes one card to be in with a chance of winning.
