Bingo has been around for years and it continued to grow and develop as it’s one of the most entertaining and easiest games around. However, there’s more to Bingo than just the game!
Way back in the 1990s, Bingo was called “Beano” and it was played by using dried beans, a rubber stamp and a cardboard sheet. Edwin S. Lowe was a toy salesman which saw this game being played in Georgia. He organised this game for his friends, and whilst playing, one of his friends mistakenly yelled “Bingo” with excitement.. and this is where the modern Bingo Game all started.
Lowe got some help from Carl Leffler, a University of Columbia Mathematics Professor, to produce a number of bingo cards with non-repeating groups. This was quite a difficult task but he did succeed in coming up with 6,000 different bingo cards.
Are you now wondering about the amount of winning combinations? Hmm… the amount totals up to 552,446,474,061,129,000,000,000,000! No wonder so many players win with Bingo!
