How does bingo work?

Bingo is fast, but it's surprisingly easy to play once you've got the hang of the basics. Whether you're totally new to the game or just want to brush up your bingo skills, you'll be a pro in no time. Here is your simple guide to a game of bingo! It's always best to arrive in good time for a bingo game. As well as arriving at the venue and getting in, you'll need to get your bingo cards and find a seat before the game begins. Bingo cards are 5x5 grids, and in each box is a number. Every card is different, and the numbers are between 1 and 75. When the game is about to begin, the bingo caller will announce the winning pattern. This tells you which of the boxes on your card you'll need to daub in order to win the game. Then the bingo game can begin! The caller will draw and announce numbers one by one, and if you have the number on your card, daub it. The first player to daub every box needed for the winning pattern must shout BINGO! This will stop the game and announce that they have won.
