Bingo is a fun and popular chance game where players mark off numbers on pre-made cards that have been made with numbers. As numbers are drawn randomly by a caller, the winner is typically the first person to mark off five numbers in a row. The term "bingo" is an exclamation used to express exhilaration and happiness when a positive event or result occurs. Thus, it is appropriate to yell "Bingo!" when you are about to win the game.
This game has been around since the 1920s and is often used as a form of gambling where the winner can collect a prize or jackpot at the end. There are many variations of bingo including U-Pick'Em, Shotgun, Quick Shot, Bonanza, and dozens more.
