How do I play bingo ?
Bingo is an enjoyable fast paced game where players match numbers drawn to those on their cards. Though seemingly easy to play, bingo can take the form of many different variations requiring players to match rows, columns, patterns or even cover the entire card for various prizes. Most games take the form of pre determined patterns on the bingo cards. When playing for the first few times it can appear daunting, especially if you miss a number! However here at Bingoport we have made a handy guide to help you enjoy your bingo experience. The most popular bingo variation in Colorado is 75 ball played with cards made of 24 numbers in 5 rows and 5 columns with an an empty square in the middle. The cards are normally coloured and set to the letters BINGO with balls numbered 1-15 being for the letter "B", 16-30 for "I", 31-45 "N", 46-60 "G" and finally 61-75 being for letter "O". In every hall there will always be a bingo caller, normally seated up front, who will draw the balls from a bingo machine for you to mark off your cards. Cards can normally be purchased from the purser in strips and often come with a dauber included. More modern halls now offer the ability for tickets to be purchased online and played out by a tablet device in the venue. For newbies to bingo we would suggest this option as it gives an advantage to players as they do not have to daub the numbers manually when called. Once you have purchased your tickets and the game starts, players simply mark off the called numbers on their cards. When any of the predetermined patterns are fully marked players must call "Bingo" to the caller so he can stop drawing further balls. They will then check the players cards and verify their win and pay the prizes. Sometimes games can take the form of multiple patterns building towards a coverall whereas others will simply be for a four corners and then a new game will commence thereafter.

Is gambling legal in Colorado ?
Currently Colorado law permits bingo in both charitable and commercial environments and there are over 30 land based casinos in the state, based predominately in Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek. There are also two further tribal operated casino venues in Southwest Colorado. Most charitable events seek to raise money as opposed to offering cash prizes, so these typically take donations, raffles or door covers in order for players to participate. At present Colorado does not allow any forms of online casino based gambling, the state has a lottery but again online ticket sales are not allowed. In May 2000, the Colorado Constitution changed its laws to allow online sport betting across multiple platforms. To celebrate this historic milestone the Majority Leader Alec Garnett placed the first legal ceremonial state wager. Unfortunately for him his choice of the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl at +4000 did not make him rich, although we certainly like his sentiment!
