Where can I enjoy bingo in Finksburg, Maryland?

Bingo is played in venues called bingo halls, but there's a catch- anywhere can be a bingo hall! A bingo hall doesn't have to be a specific building that only runs bingo; if your local church holds a bingo fundraiser, it temporarily becomes a bingo hall! Because bingo in Maryland must be for charity, lots of charities hold fundraisers at their own venue, or in a nearby rented space. Your local fire station, church hall, or veterans' club could become a temporary bingo hall for the night! Despite the differences between them, once they are set up for a game of bingo, bingo halls will feel very familiar! There will be tables and chairs for the players, somewhere for the bingo caller to stand, and of course, lots of bingo players.

What happens during a game of bingo?

If you've never played bingo, you might not be entirely clear on how it works. That's okay! Bingo is fast and exciting, and it's easy to play once you know how! Here's your simple guide to bingo. Before the bingo game starts, players will get their bingo cards. Each card is a 5x5 grid with a blank space in the middle. The other squares are filled with numbers, randomly selected between 1 and 75. As the game starts, the caller will announce the winning pattern. This tells players which squares on their card they need to mark to win the game. Then the game can start. The bingo caller randomly draws numbers, announcing them to the room. Players mark the number on their card if they have it. The first player to mark every box on their card to match the winning pattern has to shout BINGO to announce their win. You have to call bingo before the next number is drawn, or you've missed your chance!
