How To Play Bingo

Each of us has played bingo before right? Well, have you played it since you turned eighteen? As we get older we get to experience a different variety of things such as what I like to call “adult bingo”. Keep reading, I would like to introduce you to my world of BINGO.

Bingo is played on player cards which have five columns, each with five squares. Every square on the card has a number, except the center space. It’s typically marked FREE. The goal is to listen as the numbers are called and to cover any numbers that you have. The first person who completes a pre-determined pattern on his card yells “BINGO,” and upon confirmation, wins the prize. You’re only allowed to use special BINGER markers that are given to you to mark your card.

You must purchase your cards up-front before the game that you want to play. In some cases, you buy just one card. More often, though, your buy-in will cover disposable, tear-off sheets of paper that contain several card faces. The wise player knows that he/she increases the odds of winning by buying multiple cards.

Here are a few details provided by Agen Judi slot that you might inquire about while playing this game. Two straight lines which consist of you filling in one of your B.I.N.G.O columns at the same time. Coverall means you cover the whole sheet. Front and back mean the caller will call two numbers at the same time. Being that there are 75 balls with a letter from “bingo” if the caller calls N 45 you would also mark G 54. These are just some of the games you will complete during a session.

Once you have called bingo a floorwalker or a bingo assistant will read your card ID number to the caller. Once he or she has entered the numbers into the computer it will verify or deny the bingo. If you are the only one that won you get paid all of the money. If two people call “BINGO” the pot is split evenly between them. Same if three or more people call it.

The prize at bingo is just about always cash, from $25 or $500 for a simple bingo. I have heard of prizes being bigger such as a car, a trip, or even coupons for a drink. The most I have ever won at a time was $124.00. I have also lost money but it’s the excitement that keeps me coming back. The jackpots are based on the amount of money that is coming into the hall. The halls must payout at least 50% f their pay. Most bingo halls have different ways of getting people to come and play. The more people the more money they can give out which means the jackpots are bigger. If you had to pay only fifteen dollars for a session pack which is twenty bingo games and the jackpot is worth $5,000 dollars wouldn’t you want to play?

Bingo players are friendly and are willing to talk you through any bingo problems you might have. But don’t forget that some people take this game seriously. Think before you call bingo. Always double-check even though the floor walker calls your card number. It really does frustrate others when you call bingo and don’t have it. Don’t take your frustration out on the caller. Just as we make mistakes so do they. Last but not least, I don’t smoke and really hate it when others come into a bingo hall and sit down in the non-smoking areas. Please only smoke in the designated areas.

Now that you have learned about how to play bingo, what your cards look like, what daubers to use, and some tips on how to make it easier for yourself and others in the bingo hall why don’t you try entering the real world of bingo? Play bingo online or pull out your phone book nearest you, look up the bingo halls closest to you, and check your bank account. Make sure you have enough funds in there to last you about three hours. Once you have confirmed your account spending grab your keys and head to the BINGO hall!
