Bingo is a lotto game. It’s a probability game. But, if we put aside the probability, there is another important argument to be made that should be categorized with Bingo. I think that the odds of winning the game are so remote that it is very doubtful anyone would be interested in playing just to lose money. Besides, what other game gives you the opportunity to receive a substantial amount of cash from your Lotto ticket investment? In other words, if you buy a Bingo card with the words “win the house,” what is the chance that you will win the game?
As far as this article is concerned, we’ll leave the decision on the probabilities of the game as a exercise for the reader to decide. I think that Bingo Mythos has been stated enough in the title. Let’s look at Myth #1: that Bingo isn’t a game of chances. Let’s look at Myth #2: that the game isn’t a good game. Let’s look at Myth #3: that the game is much more complicated than a simple game of chance. Does the reader look at the causes of the winning? Does he check the conditions? Does he compare the requirements for winning to the costs of playing? Does he replicate the conditions in other games? Does he know the history of the game?
Bingo is a gambling game that involves a device that draws a numerical result from a mechanical device that has a wheel and a ball, thereby controlling a mechanical device that produces a mechanical movement such as a wheel and a ball. Much ink has been spilled on the subject of the origins of Bingo. Most of it has been devoted to the supposed centuries old origins of the game. Black History has Redefined Bingo. Most of the Educators, unfortunately, have neglected the subject of the history of Bingo.
Did you ever wonder about the history of Bingo?
Did you ever wonder about the history of Bingo? Most people do not know that the game began life as a lottery game. When the game was first brought to the US just like the majority of other lottery games, it was marketed under the name of “Beano.” The caller would draw discs from a cigar box and the players would mark their cards with beans. If they contained the number of their card, they would shout “Beano!”; if they containing the number “Jackpot,” they would shout “Pot!” The game was such a favourite at the country clubs.
But, as you can imagine, it got out of hand. The players were beginning to play the game more seriously as did the US Bingo companies. They began to develop new expressions and to demote the game in favour of more serious games such as Roulette or slots. Before long, the discs were replaced by discs, and the cigar box was replaced by the Bingo cage. We have Roulette and slots; we have disc bingo, now we even have electronic bingo machines. The money has gone from a mostly unheard of pastime to the forefront of the social calendar.
Truly, Bingo has undergone a phenomenal transformation and in many ways a whole new monster has arises; online bingo. This is a game of wonder, scale and complexity; a gaming sensation in the making, and looks set to be a huge hit.
