Where can I play a game of bingo in Greenbelt, Maryland?

Bingo is played in venues called bingo halls. In many states, you'll find commercial bingo halls that run bingo games all day as a business, but not in Maryland.

What happens during a typical bingo game?

If you've never played bingo (or just need a refresher), you might be wondering how it all works. Bingo is fast, but it's easy to learn, and you'll be playing like a boss in no time! Here's your easy guide to exactly what happens during a game of bingo. Before the game starts, you'll get your bingo cards. The bingo card has a 5x5 grid on it, and the middle square is a free space. In the other squares are numbers between 1 and 75. Each card will be different. The idea is to daub out the numbers on your card as they are called. As the game starts, the bingo caller will announce the winning pattern. This tells you which squares on your card you need to daub to win. It could be a line, a blackout, or a fun shape! Then the game can start. The caller will shout out numbers one at a time as they are drawn; daub the number on your card if you have it. The first player to daub every square needed for the winning pattern must quickly shout BINGO to declare that they have won and stop the game!
