There are probably very little people in the world who don’t know how to play Bingo, but there are however many people who don’t know how Bingo came
into the world. On this page you can read a brief history of the world famous game BINGO.
Researchers can trace back Bingo to the 16th century, to the period of the reunification of Italy. This was the beginning of the Italian Lo Giuco del Lotto d’Italia, the national state lottery. Up until now, the Italian state lottery filled up the country’s treasury. The national lottery looked a lot like the way we know the game Bingo today and it was hugely popular all over Italy. In no time, this popularity crossed the Italian borders and all over Europe people started to organize lotto’s.
The first country that got effected with the Italian lotto craze was France. The French version of lotto was a beloved game, especially by the French intelligentsia.
The French game resembled Bingo in many ways, the only difference was that they used chips instead of balls and there weren’t any pattern’s yet. The only way to win the game was by covering horizontal rows.
Years later, the Bingo game became even more popular when it was
presented as an educational tool for children. The numeric character
of lotto, was considered an educational instrument for a long time.
It took until 1929 before the game was brought from Germany to the
United States. At that time the name of the game was “Beano”, because
it was played with beans. In America the name changed into BINGO,
Bean-Go. When the game was played in Georgia, a business man
named Edwin Lowe took interest in the game, making the game into
an incredible business success.
Interesting fact is that Bingo has never been seen as a ‘sinful activity’ like many other betting Togel Hari Ini games. Somehow Bingo managed to keep a clean and light image.
