Where can I play bingo in Damascus, Maryland?

When you want to play bingo, you'll need a bingo hall! A bingo hall is a name for any venue that offers bingo games. Some venues are bingo halls permanently; they run bingo games most days of the week, as their main business. Other venues just become bingo halls temporarily for one night a week/month! For example, your local fire station, veterans' club, or school might become a bingo hall temporarily to host a bingo fundraiser! Because of this, there can be quite some variation between bingo halls, but this just means there is more choice for players like you! Whether you opt for a permanent bingo hall or a bingo game at another local venue, you're sure to have tons of fun. And best of all, you'll also be raising money for a good cause, as all bingo games in Maryland must be in aid of a charity!

What happens during a bingo game?

Bingo is beloved all around the world, and it is the mix of simplicity and fast-paced excitement that forms the winning combo! Bingo may look intimidating if you've ever watched a game, but the secret is that it's surprisingly easy to pick up, and a ton of fun once you do. It's always a safe bet to arrive a little early for a bingo game. Before the game starts, you'll need to get your bingo cards, and find your seat. You may also find that your hall is quite social; being early may allow you to chat or get refreshments before the game starts. You will get bingo cards for each game you will play. Each card has a 5x5 grid, and each box on this grid has a random number between 1 and 75 in it, except the middle square which is blank. At the beginning of the game, the winning pattern will be announced, which tells you which boxes on your grid you need to mark to win. Then the caller will start drawing numbers one by one, shouting them out. Mark the number on your card if you have it. The first player to mark every box needed for the winning pattern must shout BINGO!
