  Brief History of Bingo

Bingo History Lesson

 

Bingo Conception?

At the minimum, Bingo has been developing for a sliver shy of 5 centuries, tracing back to 1530 in Italy. It was then a �lottery� game called �Lo Giuoco Code Lotto�. By the 1700s you could find it maturing in France where they were using playing cards, tokens and added the reading out of numbers. The 1800s saw bingo widely used in Germany for educational purposes, to teach children spelling, animal names and multiplication tables.

Bingo Makes History in America

At a carnival near Atlanta Georgia in 1929, Beano was being played with dried beans, a rubber stamp and cardboard sheets. Edwin Lowe, was watching this game and noticed how engaged the players were. The Carnival worker had to kick the players out at 3 am. Lowe, took the idea with him to New York where he introduced the game to his friends. He conducted bingo games similar to the ones he had witnessed, using dried beans, a rubber numbering stamp and card board. His friends loved the game. It is said that one of his players made bingo history when he was so excited to have won that he yelled out �Bingo� instead of �Beano." The Lowe Bingo Game had two versions; the first a 12-card set for $1.00, the second a $2.00 set with 24 cards. Bingo was a wild success. By the 1940s Bingo games were all over the country. Lowe had many competitors and all he asked was that they pay $1.00 a year to conduct the games and of course to use the name Bingo.

Modern Bingo - Still Making History

Today Bingo is a global game, there is an estimated 60 million Bingo Players all over the world and 50,000 Bingo Halls throughout North America and probably more in the UK. Bingo has enjoyed massive growth in the UK since the 1960s. Most UK bingo halls sport electronic equipment and a much faster calling pace than American Bingo halls.
