Where can I play bingo games in Chester, Maryland?

In Chester, you can enjoy a great selection of bingo venues. But where can you find bingo? Bingo is played in bingo halls; some bingo halls are permanent, whereas others may be a social club, church, or fire station that has become a bingo hall just for the night. This means that your nearest bingo halls may not always be easy to spot! The nice thing about this is that each bingo hall will be different, and will have its own atmosphere, schedule, and setup. Differences aside, you'll definitely see some similarities within bingo halls; the room will be laid out in a similar way each time, with tables and chairs for the players, and somewhere for the bingo caller to stand.

What happens during a bingo game?

Bingo is fast and exciting, but it's surprisingly easy to learn! If you've never played bingo before, it may see confusing, but here's your simple guide to understanding how bingo works. It's always best to arrive early to a bingo game. You'll need to find your way in, get your bingo cards, and settle into a seat before the game begins. A bingo card has a 5x5 grid on it. The grid is filled with random numbers between 1 and 75, with a blank space in the middle. At the beginning of the game, the bingo caller will announce the winning pattern. This tells you which boxes on your card's grid you must mark to win the game. Then the caller will draw numbers randomly, announcing them one at a time. Players mark their cards if they have the number on their grid. The first player to mark all the squares for the winning pattern must quickly shout BINGO before the next number is called out. This is how you win the game and claim your prize!
