Bingo has been played since 1920 and has become a favorite pastime. The game is played using a cards with 4 sets of numbers. An announcer reads out random numbers which the players compare to the numbers on their cards. If a player has the same numbers as the
announcer calls out arranged in a row, then they win. A player with a winning card then calls out “Bingo” to alert other players of their win. The announcer then checks the card to confirm the win which brings an end to that round of playing and starts another.
Players are always out to get the right arrangement before each other. Getting the right sequence of numbers wins the player a jackpot which may have accumulated to a sizeable amount during play. The game is based purely on chance as players cannot apply any sort of strategy to determine what numbers the announcer calls out. This is one of the reasons the game is so popular since not much thinking is needed and even a novice has a good chance of winning.
