Where can I enjoy bingo in Dunkirk, Maryland?

Bingo is played in venues called 'bingo halls'. The thing is, anywhere can become a bingo hall! All it has to do is host a game of bingo, and it's a bingo hall! Some bingo halls are commercial halls; they just run bingo games all day, and that's their thing. However, in Maryland, bingo must be not-for-profit, so many charities host bingo fundraisers on their premises to raise money. That means that your local veterans' club, fraternal organization, fire station, or church may become your local bingo hall too from time to time! Playing bingo only for charity means that many non-profit organizations can use bingo to help raise money for their cause, and players can support the charity by having a great time and enjoying some bingo! Although bingo halls might look very different at first glance, once they're set up ready for a bingo game, you'll see a lot of similarities!

What happens during a bingo game?

During a game of bingo, the atmosphere is tense, the excitement is high, and the numbers come fast! It can be a little crazy to watch if you're unfamiliar with the game, but don't worry. Whether you're a pro or a total beginner, everyone can enjoy taking a little time to re-familiarize themselves with the rules of bingo! Here's how a typical game will go: Players tend to arrive early for bingo. Once you arrive, you'll need to get your bingo cards and find a seat. You may also wish to socialize before the game, and some halls offer snacks or meals to enjoy while you are there. Once you have your cards, just wait for the game to start. Your bingo card will have a 5x5 grid, with a blank center square. The other squares will each feature a number between 1 and 75, randomly selected. Each card will be different. Before the game begins, the bingo caller will announce the winning pattern- that is, which squares on your grid you must mark to win. Then they will draw numbers one at a time, calling them out so players can mark their cards if they have the number. The first player to match the winning pattern must shout BINGO!
