Knowing bingo – Calls used in traditional Bingo

In the earlier days there were no bingo cards with a 5 x 5 square grid with which we are very familiar now. The Lotto or Housie game as they were known then had tickets which were normally sold to the players in bunches of six. Each ticket had a 9 x 3 square grid where each row having 9 squares were filled with 5 numbers and the rest 4 were left blank. The player would mark the numbers when they were called out to get a single line, a double line or a full house or three line bingo.

To increase the excitement of the game, calls were devised in such a fashion that the players would immediately recognize the number being called by listening to their descriptions, e.g. when the caller called out “a pair of fat ladies” the player would immediately know that he was mentioning the figure 88. The explanation for this type of call was quite apparent because the figure looked somewhat like two ladies sitting side by side. As the number 2 looked like a duck swimming in the water the call which described it was usually “One Little Duck” or “Me And You”. Similarly, the figure 22 became to be called as “Two Little Ducks” and the figure 11 was called “Legs” signifying a pair of slim legs.

In the same way the figure 3 came to known as “A Cup Of Tea” and the figure 33 as “All The Threes”. The figure 4 was called “Knock At The Door” while the figure 44 was described as “Droopy Drawers” meaning the number looked like a sagging pair of trousers. The number 10 was referred to as the British Prime Minister’s “Den”, whoever he was at the moment and living at 10 Downing Street while the number 7 was called “Lucky Seven”, the number 12 was called “One Dozen” and the number 13 was referred to as “Unlucky For Some”.

The number 16 was denoted by “Sweet Sixteen” while the number 18 was called “Coming Of Age”. In a similar way the number 65 was called “Stop Work” signifying the age at which everybody retires in UK while 89 was called “Almost There” and 90 was called “Top Of The Shop”. Lists of all the typical calls are available at all the bingo halls or on the internet.

The descriptions came to be known as the “Bingo Lingo” in the UK which still prevails to this day. The style of calling these numbers was different in different land based bingo halls. In some halls the caller would call out the description and the numbers together for the players. In some other bingo halls the caller would call out the description and the players would shout the corresponding number in chorus as they marked the tickets. While in some other bingo halls the caller would call out the number and the players would say the corresponding description in chorus as if they were reciting a rhyme.

Any avid player worth his salt who visited the land based bingo halls regularly had to be familiar with the descriptions of these calls as otherwise he would be late in marking the number on the ticket and lose precious moments. He could also miss winning the game by being late to call out “Single or Double Line” or “Full House”. The player could not ask anybody to correct his error because disturbing a fellow player was absolutely prohibited while the game was in progress.

Teaching numbers with Bingo

To teach the numbers to a group of young children you can use the concept of bingo game which can appeal to the minds of the young people as it is a game. This game will definitely appeal to both the sharp and the not too sharp students as it is luck rather than intelligence which is involved in the game. The not so sharp students can easily overcome the sharper students thus finding the game very interesting.

Bingo Game

Bingo Game

You have a large number of rhymes and poems which you can use to teach the numbers 1 to 9. But when the number goes beyond 9 it becomes very difficult for the young children to comprehend. The numbers from 1 to 50 can be the starting point for the number learning class. Since a 3 by 3 square matrix is very easy to understand, you can use this simple matrix to teach the numbers to the children.

To play a game of bingo you need a set of cards which have these 3 by 3 square matrices filled with the numbers from 1 to 50. You can take a blank A4 sized paper and make 4 equal pieces from it. Next you can draw the 3 by 3 square matrix on the 4 pieces you have made and fill them with numbers randomly from 1 to 50. The number of such cards you need depends on the number of students you have.

Making these cards for the first time may be a small hassle but once you have created the various combinations then you do not have to repeat the process. You can also take the help of some sites from where you can directly print these educational cards. You can also get the cards laminated so that you do not have to make them or print them over and over again. If numbers beyond 50 are also used then the number of probable combinations also increases thus increasing the number of bingo cards.

The next part of the process is the preparation of the tick list where the numbers which are called out are to be marked. It is very simple to make such a list by dividing an A4 blank sheet into a 5 by 10 square matrix or grid with the numbers 1 to 10 in the first column, 11 to 20 in the next column and so on to have five columns.

The third part of the preparation needed for this game is how to mark the numbers. For marking the numbers on the cards you have to issue 9 buttons to each student. This avoids the cards being defaced by marking them with pencils and pens and they can be used repeatedly for subsequent bingo games.

Next comes the part of calling out the numbers which you can accomplish by using a book which has at least 50 pages. You open the book randomly and call out either the even page number or the odd page number. For each call you have to open and close the book every time. You have to tick the number you have called with a pencil to keep a track of the numbers you have called.

The game can now begin and every time a student gets a bingo win he is awarded with a chocolate. Gather the cards after each game and redistribute them to the students so that they get a different card every time.

Bingo Wings and what they are for online bingo fans

It is believed that the tension faced by women at home and the workplace can be reduced by either having a drink or going on a shopping spree. The first option is unhealthy while the second one can be unwise. Taking part in sports activities irrespective of age, financial status or ethnicity is regarded all over the world as the best form of relaxation. A game which involves your mind and requires your full attention is online bingo which is one of the recent forms of relaxation from stress.

Online bingo can easily replace women’s most attractive form of entertainment like shopping. Most of the ladies who play bingo do not find it useful to waste almost 19 per cent of their money on articles they may never use. They think that they are better off playing online bingo within the comforts of their homes.

But with the spread of online bingo the part of the bingo culture known as “Bingo Wings” is getting relegated to the history books as people have stopped going to the bingo halls like in the past and are not able to experience this typical phenomenon. Staying at home to play online bingo is like losing your wings to fly.

A brief description of what the “Bingo Wings” is all about is given below.

If you have gone to bingo halls earlier then you surely know about Bingo Wings. Actually they are not wings and they are not related to the game of bingo at all. Old and middle aged women who have not been able to maintain their shapes usually have these bingo wings.

The name “bingo wings” was given to the loose fat under someone’s arm. Whenever the lady raised her arm to signal a win, these bingo wings would come into plain view of the other players.

There is no need to worry if you have bingo wings. To get rid of them you have to exercise a bit, improve your diet and wait patiently for it to go away.

The bingo wings produced by fat and loose skin which hangs from your upraised arm can be easily reduced by avoiding fast and oily foods and by doing exercises to tone up your arms. A totally 100 percent health food or crash diet is not necessary to reduce this extra fat. By being careful about what you take and by exercising at least three times every week is enough to do the job and very soon you will find that your bingo wings have disappeared.

The best way to avoid getting bingo wings is to keep in shape which may be difficult to do sometimes. The best thing which can be done otherwise is to stay at home and play online bingo where you do not have to raise your arms to signal a win and nobody is able to see your bingo wings. You can also avoid the fast foods offered by the restaurants in the bingo halls and you will be able to maintain your shape by reducing your weight.

But if you do have to go to the bingo halls anyway, then solve your bingo wings problem by dressing up in full sleeved shirts so that they are not visible to anybody when you raise your arms to call out bingo.

Playing a game of Online Bingo in virtual bingo halls

In the recent past bingo halls were considered as a central place where people in a community would come to meet and talk with their friends and also get a chance of winning some money on the side. People used to come to the bingo halls in both casual attire and also in formal dresses and suits as if they were going to a formal gathering. The bingo halls were earlier used by the people for socializing, making new friends and to earn some money. But there have been drastic changes to the scenario since then.

Bingo Halls

Bingo Halls

The spread of online bingo has been very drastic due to the fact that it is simple to play and the attractive jackpots which it offers. With help of the internet and modern technology you can play online bingo on your own home computer. There are no time constraints for playing bingo and you can play online bingo wherever and whenever you choose to. The claims made by some of the players suggest that more money can be made by playing online bingo rather than going to the bingo halls. You are allowed to chat while playing online bingo which was not allowed in the bingo halls.

The best way to find out how to play online bingo is to attend the various chat rooms that are provided by the online bingo sites. You have to be completely sure that your style of playing is similar to the way the other players in the room are playing before you can start. Once you are sure of this you can start to play immediately. You are also given the option to play any type of game you choose to at a particular moment depending upon your frame of mind at that time.

The options available in an online bingo site are far greater than what was there when your forefathers played a game of bingo. The games offered can be a 75-ball game or a 90-ball game. You have the freedom to choose from any of the birthday bingo, luckygem, odds & evens, dodgeball, bullseye or keno games which are being offered.

Using the feature which allows you to chat with the other players is also an advantage. You can have a great time by making new acquaintances and getting your doubts about the game cleared by them.

The Massacre of Bingo on Valentine’s Day

Is there any relation between bingo and underworld? Romance and passionate love is normally represented by Valentine’s Day but the atmosphere of love on this day was marred by an event which occurred some time ago. Instead of the arrow from Cupid striking your heart it was a hail of bullets which brought down some men on this day. On a cold day in winter in Chicago, on the 14th of February, 1929, Al Capone’s henchmen posing as police officers gunned down George Moran who was known as “Bugs” and was the arch rival of Al Capone. Along with Moran they also killed seven of his gang on that Valentine’s Day by carrying out a garage style execution. Gangsters proliferated in all the big cities in the United States during the days of Prohibition when bootlegging or illegal manufacture of liquor was prohibited. Ultimately all the states in America had to lift this Prohibition one after another and had to make the manufacture of liquor legal only after 1966 to stop organized crime from flourishing any further.The saying that history repeats itself came true when Prohibition was forced upon the game of online bingo and all the bingo halls. The Prohibition on bingo gave rise to markets which had no regulation resulting in the loss of huge amounts of revenue which could otherwise have been generated and also restricted the rights of the bingo players. This was another form of massacre which was faced by the bingo players who were deprived of the right to play bingo wherever and whenever they pleased.

Bingo Game

Bingo Game

If history has its way with the future then a day will soon arrive when gambling will be legalized and just like Prohibition was lifted in the case of liquor, it will complete a full circle when one state after another and the ultimately the whole of United States will declare gambling as legal.

The political process of “yay”s and “nay”s decide whether gambling should be made legal or not. This process will come to an end when both the camps realize that revenue and economy is the actual source of power. If the climate of duress continues there can be no generation of revenue and hence the only way the economy can survive is to close the gap of misunderstanding between the two parties and agree to make gambling legal.

Since the inception of the game in the 1500s, a long time before the formation of the New World, the game of bingo had become quite popular. It has been forecast that bingo will go from strength to strength, often with newer and better options being added, and become even more popular among the masses. You will soon find parks, coffee shops and homes filled with people playing online bingo on their laptops. As the crazy idea of gaming on mobiles start catching up, more and more mobile phones will be used for gaming rather than for receiving or answering calls only.

The boom in the bingo industry will usher in huge amounts of job opportunities and the large number of jobless people will be reduced. The big cities which are already in the red by having legalized bingo will take on a colour mixed with red, blue and white and the gambling community will have got back its stature in the society with justice being done to it.

You have only to wait and watch at present…..

Women play bingo more than men

For many years running the game of bingo was believed to be the sole domain of women players. This is true to some extent but in the last few years the game has seen more and more men players joining in to play bingo. At the last estimate it was found that 10 percent of the population are women players while 5 percent of the population who play bingo are men. These figures sometimes seem unrealistic with so many bingo halls and online bingo sites around and the great amount of advertising done on bingo by the television channels and internet sites.

The game had a traditional group of old ladies who were called as the Blue-Rinse Brigade. They visited the local bingo halls regularly to play bingo whenever they got the chance to do so. But as the game became modern, the demography of the players started to change from the aged to players from different age groups and backgrounds.

Women players were especially attracted by the game of bingo and 90 percent of the players in the bingo halls are sometimes women. On the other hand online bingo has a ratio of 80:20 of women players to men. From these figures it is clear that men do love to play bingo but only when they have the privacy offered by their homes to play in.

The women players can be normally divided into two categories. The first group comprises of women who have a formal university education. The second group comprises of women who have children. It is interesting to note that 30 per cent of the 2.72 million women players are educated and have university degrees while 50 percent of them have children.

When a no smoking ban was implemented in the bingo halls of UK, it had a huge repercussion on the players who came to the bingo halls as almost 60 percent of players were smokers. A large number of players who came regularly to the bingo halls to play bingo and enjoy their smoke at the same time found it very difficult to play without being able to smoke. This caused a fall in the number of players who used to frequent the bingo halls earlier. The players who stopped visiting the bingo halls started playing on the online bingo sites as now they could smoke to their utmost satisfaction while enjoying their afternoons and evenings with a game of bingo sitting surrounded by homely comforts.

The difference in the average age of the women players is 11 years where the 47 years is the average for women players and 36 years is the average age of the men players.

As per the above statistics women still hold the majority over the men in the bingo world. The players who play bingo on the internet are however quite younger on an average. It can be easily seen that online bingo is considered as an in thing by the modern players. The gaming sites on the social networks will help the game of bingo to spread more and more among the people of this world. The figures show that the popularity of the game of bingo has a further chance of growing which comes as a great bit of news to both the operators of the online bingo sites and the players also.

Facts about Online Bingo sites

Just as other games which can be played online on the internet, the game of online bingo is also available to players around the globe and is one of the most popular online games played in UK. This online game is played on online bingo sites by the maximum number of individual players looking to pass some time.

The game of online bingo is the same game played in the bingo halls the only difference being that it is played online. The revenue collected from the game of online bingo round the world except from the United States reached the huge figure of USD 500 million in the year 2006 and was expected to reach a fantastic USD 1000 million by the year 2010. Just imagine what the revenue figure would be by 2020.

There is a slight difference between online bingo and the bingo played in land based bingo halls. One of the differences is that the numbers in an online bingo game are generated by a random number generator whereas in a bingo game held in the bingo hall there is a caller who calls out the numbers. The other difference is that unlike the bingo halls which hold only bingo games, the online sites offer other online games along with online bingo or direct you to sites which hold these online games.

The chat room in an online bingo site is the most attractive feature to be found in these online sites where you can play other games along with the game of bingo. The chat rooms have been designed to give you the same sense of belonging to a community and surrounded by friends as found in the land based bingo halls. The chat rooms enable the players to socialize just like in land based bingo halls.

There is another difference between the land based bingo and the online bingo which is a novel concept introduced by these chat rooms. Talking between players was strictly prohibited when a bingo game is in progress in the bingo halls to prevent disturbance to the players who have to listen keenly to the numbers being called as missing one number may cause the player to miss the bingo. The chat rooms on the other hand encourage the players to chat between themselves especially the female players even when the bingo game is going on to lessen the tension and to make them feel at ease.

The players are encouraged to talk among themselves so that they can vociferously congratulate a bingo winner whenever he wins to boost his bingo game. The communication in these chat rooms is carried on with the help of acronyms in place of the sentences used in normal conversation.

The online bingo sites employ a Chat Monitor or Chat Moderator called CM in short or a Chat Host called CH in short to oversee the conversation in the chat room. The CM or the CH has the responsibility of welcoming new players to the chat room and the site, see that a feeling of community is maintained, etiquette is followed in conversations and there is no untoward bad behaviour adopted by any player towards the other players. They have to keep the environment in the chat room friendly and flowing similar to other online forums where people gather to socialize.

The experience of a winner on Cyberbingo while playing bingo

This is the story of one of the players who took to playing bingo to pass sometime. She was a regular visitor to the bingo hall which was near her home and she loved every moment of the time she spent there. The excitement of the game and the friends she met and chatted with lifted her mood and she never thought of giving it up.

But she was not aware that age was catching up with her very silently and very fast. One morning she woke up to find that she could not get out of bed because of excruciating pain in her knees and ankles. The doctor said that she was suffering from acute arthritis and prescribed complete bed rest.

She was completely devastated. Gone were her daily visits to the bingo hall. Gone was the excitement of the bingo game which she loved so much. Gone was the opportunity of chatting with her friends. Her world had come to a stop.

It was then that somebody presented her with computer with an internet connection and showed her how to operate it. He knew that she had a fascination for bingo and told her about the sites which offer online bingo games.

She could not wait any longer and immediately launched into the web and started searching for the sites which offer the game of bingo. At first she was doubtful about the sites which were offering a game of online bingo. She did not want to waste her money by playing bingo on sites which did not have proper credentials. She went on doing research on site after site to find out which was the best one for her. She read through the reviews and bulletins about the sites to take the correct decision.

None of the sites seemed good enough. Her eagerness turned to despair when suddenly she stumbled onto a site called Cyberbingo. The reviews were good, the credentials seemed genuine and the payment procedures seemed secure. She immediately registered her name with the site to play a game of online bingo.

As soon as she joined the game she was warmly greeted by the Moderator who was also a lady and she was invited to join the discussion in the chat room. She was introduced to the other players already there in the chat room who welcomed her to join them. Being new to the chat room she was wondering how to find her way about when the players in the chat room started guiding her on how to play the game of online bingo.

With the help of her new found friends and a very considerate and helpful Moderator she soon became familiar with all the aspects of an online game of bingo. She was very impressed when she was felicitated by the other players when she won a bingo. She found many people in the chat rooms with habits, like and dislikes similar to hers. She was overjoyed with this new group of friends and the way the game of online bingo was conducted by this site named Cyberbingo.

She was excited by the size of the progressive jackpots and the promotions offered by the site on special days. She even won a sum of 1000 dollars in one of these promotional games where a laptop was also being offered as one of the ten prizes to be won.

Sitting at home she savored the world of online bingo and the various attractive features spread out in front of her by Cyberbingo and never felt lonely again.

Let us see what she has to tell the other players or visitors to the site

“Dear Cyberbingo,

I love Cyberbingo. I have visited other sites in the past but they do not compare to cyberbingo. I love the animations in the rooms, the people that host the rooms are the best. They are helpful, patient and oh so very friendly I love them all. Customer service is always there to help. The people in the chat rooms all root you on and if they can’t win they are glad you did, they are all good sports. They have many different rooms to choose from in all different amounts. They have excellent promotions and large deposit matches.

What else could you ask for in a web site?

I used to go to bingo but can no longer go because of disabilities. I really missed it so when I found this site I was thrilled. Instead of going to bingo I can play from the comfort of my own home. Cyberbingo has huge progressive jackpots, special holiday promotions. In fact they just had one for St. Patricks Day called st. Paddy’s day laptop that you could win .one of ten prizes.

Fortunately I won 1st place I chose the $1000.00 instead of the laptop. So if I can win you can win. You should give it a try you won’t regret it. Cyberbingo is #1.
