What You Need To Play Bingo
Bingo is one of the more simple pastimes in the UK. It’s why generations of player have flocked to bingo halls and continue to do so both online and offline.
The beauty of bingo is that you need very little, and what’s more you can play at home or anytime, anywhere relatively easily.
But what do you need to play bingo?
Check out our guide below so you can start playing bingo in no time at all…
If you’re looking to play bingo with friends and family from home, then you really don’t need much to make it work. There are a number of essential items, but you can make it fun and fair in a number of different ways.
Of course, first things first you need some bingo cards and pencils or dabbers for all your players. You’ll find plenty of examples of bingo cards online, while you can create your own, with you simply needing to create a series of grids. For 90-ball bingo you need a 3×9 grid, with five boxes containing numbers on each row. For the 75-ball variant, you’d need a card that’s 5×5.
You then need a device for drawing the numbers. You can essentially be as inventive as you like with this, all that’s required is that the draw is made fairly. It could be balls out of a bingo machine or bag, while you can even write the numbers on pieces of paper and draw them out of a hat or box.
The opportunities are fairly endless with this, the only other thing you need is a dedicated bingo caller and a prize.
