Bingo History



In the 1500
Bingo history actually started back as early as the 16th century in Italy. It originates from an Italian lotto game named Lo Giuoco del Lotto d Italia.

1700
the bingo game began to gain popularity in france in the 18th century. The French invented their own type of bingo familiarly known as Le Lotto, in 1778. The Le Lotto cards were split into many squares ( three horizontal and 9 vertical ). Horizontal rows had only five numbered squares and the vertical columns included numbers from one to ninety. Le Lotto was also played with chips, numbered from 1-90, so as to cover the squares. Each player was given one card and after numbers were pronounced, players would place chips on the relevant numbers. To win, players were needed to completely cover a horizontal row with chips. The 1st one to completely cover a row was proclaimed the winner.

1900
Beano was a game that gained popularity in 1929, this version of the game most resmbles the game we play today. Another version of Lotto was adopted in Germany, only the game was called Beano because this time the players covered the squares not with chips but with beans. Irrespective of whether a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row had been covered, the first player to cover his card would announce Beano. Right after that, Beano was introduced in America by a traveler named Ed Lowe, who picked up the game on a trip to Germany in that period. In 1929 there had been a rise in the popularty of bingo due to the crash of the market. The decline of the stockmarket caused lots of people to turn to bingo as well as ther sorts of gambling to earn additional cash to help their families survive. Bingo in education; later in the 19th century, the game of bingo was adopted for tutorial purposes. For example, in Germany, tutors used lotto so as to teach youngsters to spell, multiply and for example. 2000 Bingo numbers as we know them: A Pennsylvanian pastor, attempting to find methods to deal with his parish’s finance difficulties came up with the concept of taking advantage of bingo’s renown so as to raise funds. The priest bought several bingo sets, but after launching the bingo games, discovered a major quandary there were just too many winners. So as to answer the problem, the pastor enrolled the aid of Carl Leffler, a professor of mathematics at Columbia Varsity , who added new bingo number mixtures, making it far harder to win. This solution helped rescue the pastor’s parish from its fiscal problems. The Bingo game became so popular that an Instructional Manual was even broadcast. 2010 Today the game of bingo is enjoyed in bingo halls and online. Online bingo has hit the gaming industry by storm over the past decade. Many people enjoy the social aspect of online bingo and they are always glad to find free bingo sites where they can play for fun while networking with others who share the same passion for the game.
