In Bingo, game cards are distributed to players, and each card contains a unique combination of numbers. Prior to the game beginning, a bingo card pattern is announced and can be in various arrangements such as Straight Vertical,Bow Tie, Diamond or many other combinations. Bingo Players must match their card numbers with the numbers randomly called by the person manging the game, also known as the bingo caller. Once all bingo players get their cards, the bingo caller begins to randomlly draw balls, one ball at a time from a basket of 75 balls, 80 balls or 90 balls.
Each player of the bigo game searches his or her card for the called number, and mark it with a bingo card stamping untecil known as a bingo dauber. Once a number on a bingo ball is called, it is marked and set aside so that it cannot be called again. Eventually someone will win the game by filling his or her game pattern and yell “Bingo!”. That person’s bingo cards are checked for correctness by a bingo spotter, that particular game of bingo is over. The balls are also returned to the machine, and players purchase new bingo cards for the next game.
