Bingo Sites Releases New Info-Graphic on the History of the Game of Bingo
With over 100 million players worldwide, Bingo is still the game of choice for many
According to the infographic, the game emanated from Europe back in 1530. It also shares a common bond with an Italian lottery game known as “Lo Giuoco del Lotto d’Italia.” While this lottery game is still in existence, Bingo as we know it has certainly evolved over the years. No longer is this game relegated to smoky bingo halls and senior citizen centers. In the last few years, bingo has seen resurgence in popularity on all levels.
While online bingo is certainly all the rage, only 1% of land based players have transitioned into this burgeoning gaming trend. While this is somewhat disappointing, it appears most players simply love the traditional aspects of the game. This includes the cards, along with the excitement of having their numbers called. While the modern version of the game has strong European influences, bingo was popularized by an American salesman named Edwin S. Lowe.
The infographic also states that bingo was derived from “Beano.” The latter was a similar game that utilized dried beans to mark cards. While bingo spread throughout America in the 1930’s, the game continues to dominate countless church socials and clubs across the nation. With the advent of the Internet, players can now enjoy bingo from the comfort of their homes or offices. The game has become the most popular leisure activity in the UK. In fact, 85% of all bingo players in the UK are women.
According to the infographic, 90% of bingo players are also under the age of 50. This dispels the myth that bingo is dominated by elderly players and seasoned veterans. Of the 90%, about 85% of players play online bingo. An additional 50% ok players play bingo everyday as well. As the game continues to expand and grow, online gaming sites are now including bingo as an option for millions of players.
