Rules of Bingo
Basic rules of bingo
The game starts when all the players buy bingo tickets. A bingo ticket is a card with a 5x5 grid. 5 columns on the card correspond to 5 letters of the name of the game "B-I-N-G-O". 24 numbers per each card are random from the limits of 1 to 75. The center of the card is an empty space. After that the game begins, and the caller selects numbers at a random and calls them.
As soon as the caller calls one number, all the players mark it on their tickets. The winner is determined when one or several of the players complete the winning bingo pattern. The pattern can be different depending on the hall the game is held. As in one real money casino it can be a line, either vertical, horizontal or diagonal, a full house (when all the numbers are to be covered) or any symbol, letter or digit.
The numbers in the columns of a Bingo ticket are selected at random and printed according to the range - numbers in the B column are from 1 to 15, in the I column between 16 and 30, in the N column (that contains four numbers and the free (blank) space between 31 and 45, in the G column between 46 and 60, and in the O column between 61 and 75.
Players are provided with series of unique cards, that sometimes count 4,000 or 6,000. Some manufacturers produce cards with a series number that means that the cards with the same series number will have the same numbers in the same places.
The Bingo game ends when a player has completed a row of numbers, not before. After the game has started, you need to pay attention to the numbers being called, and find the number on your Bingo card, and mark it so you can later recognize the mark.
