Why are Bingo games so popular?
What's great about playing Bingo is that by its nature, it's a social game. It brings people together, whether it's family or a group of friends or people from the community. And because it's a game of chance above skill (though some would beg to differ), pretty much anyone can win.
Whether played for charity fundraisers at schools, in college dorm rooms for bragging rights, in retirement communities to help keep the brain sharp or as high roller Bingo at Bingo halls like the one at Turning Stone, its popularity is enjoying a resurgence.

How do you play casino Bingo?
In the classic game of Bingo, the first one to match numbers drawing a line horizontally, vertically or diagonally wins the part of the prize being played for in that game. The fun - and the challenge - comes in playing multiple sheets at once.
Because Bingo is a game of speed, too many sheets and you may not spot your winning number in time to beat another player. Too few sheets and you have less of a chance of winning. The first person with a winning sheet to call out Bingo wins that game and its prizes.
Newer-approved game patterns took casino Bingo up a notch when they debuted, with names like Crazy Chevron, Letter X, Filled Champagne Glass and more. Some are played for fixed prizes, others for a generous percentage of sales, which make the stakes even more thrilling.
When was the first Bingo game played?
The game of Bingo has been around since at least the 1500s. It originated with the Italian lottery and was layer enjoyed by French nobles.
What does Bingo mean?
The word "Bingo" derived from the original way the game was played - with ordinary beans on a simple sheet of paper, thus the original name of "beano".
But it was a clever American salesman who gets the credit for the name we know today. The story goes a toy salesman from New York named Edwin S. Lowe overheard someone shout our the name "Bingo" by mistake, and his marketing mind latched on.
In a brilliant move, Lowe enlisted the help of Columbian mathematician and professor Carl Leffler to increase the number of combinations on Bingo cards. The year was 1930, a year before gambling became legal in the United States. By then he had invented 6000 unique Bingo cards, which meant fewer people could get Bingo at the same time.
