The origins of bingo have been traced all the way to 1530 to a lottery known as Lo Giuoco del Lotto D'Italia. It means “the game of lotto in Italy” and was an early form of bingo played traditionally on Sundays. This game was very similar to what we associate with bingo today — players pick a set of numbers, another set of numbers is drawn from a drum, and the player who hits the most numbers wins.
Bingo then went on to become popular in several countries and continents and even changed local cultures. For example, it became popular among the French aristocracy as Le Lotto, though it was played a little differently using game cards and wooden chips. It became an educational tool in Germany in the 19th century. It was used to help children improve their maths and spelling skills.
The game jumped continents when Hugh J. Ward came across bingo during one of his trips to Europe and created his own version for the American carnivals. But the bingo as we know it today came about when Edwin S. Lowe turned the game into a mass-market product and published an official bingo rule book in 1933. World War 2 popularised bingo even more and at one time, one million people were playing bingo in more than 1,000 bingo halls per month. Over the years, however, bingo participation rates dropped off and bingo halls were closing. This was also the time when Online Bingo was stepping into the scene.
However, since the inception of the online gambling industry about 20 years ago, online bingo has developed massively and become a hugely popular pastime. Today, you can delve into this fun game right here at Sailor Bingo. Enjoy the thrill of bingo games online whilst also developing long-lasting friendships with our community, and of course, all the time hoping that you get the pleasure of being the first player to shout Bingo! Bingo games in the UK surprisingly contributes about 32% of online gambling revenue generated in the nation, according to some stats.
If you’re absolutely new to Bingo, you’ll need to learn the basic rules before you start playing for fun. If you’re a professional, feel free to skip this section. Let’s start with your objective.
Objective - The main objective in Bingo is to mark off numbers on a card and complete a line or a full house before others to win a prize.
To play bingo online at Sailor Bingo, you need to first visit our game library and choose a Bingo game. Upon you enter the game and pay the required fees, you’ll receive a virtual card. The card will have a series of numbers on it marked in various rows and columns. When the round starts, the caller will start drawing numbers. In this case, the caller is a programme that picks numbers randomly.
Your job is to listen to the caller carefully and mark the numbers off accordingly. If you need assistance, you can use one of our features called the “Auto-Dub” feature that crosses off numbers automatically so you can lay back and enjoy. Depending on the variant and type of Bingo game you’re playing, you may need to cross off a line, multiple lines, or all the numbers on the card. Even the patterns in which numbers are marked off vary from game to game —
Regardless of the pattern requirements, once you’ve met them, you’ll win a prize. The game is over when any one player gets a full house. You can win three types of jackpots at Sailor Bingo. You can win a fixed jackpot which is a preset amount to be awarded at the end of a game. You can win a progressive jackpot in which the bet amount accumulate with the jackpot to increase it over time. Finally, you can win a community jackpot that rewards everyone playing the same game at the time.
At Sailor Bingo, you’ll find several bingo variants to keep it fresh and exciting.
This traditional variant of bingo is played with 90 squares on the card. The card has three horizontal lines and nine columns with a total of fifteen numbers on the card, five on each card. These numbers will be distributed as follows: column one contains numbers one to nine, column two contains numbers ten through nineteen, and so on up to 90.
As suggested by the name, this variant played commonly in the US and Canada has 75 squares on the card. It has five horizontal lines and five columns and each column is headed by one of the letters in BINGO. In a 75 Ball Bingo card, the first column has numbers from one through 15, the second is occupied by 16 to 30, and so on. The space in the middle of the card is devoid of numbers.
This variant is considered to be the happy medium between 75 Ball and 90 Ball Bingo by many players. It’s a relatively new addition to our game library as well. The card in this game has four horizontal lines and four columns, each marked by a different colour.
