Where can I enjoy bingo in Hollywood, Maryland?

If you want to play bingo, you'll need to find a bingo hall. A bingo hall is any venue that hosts a bingo game. In many states, you can find commercial bingo halls which run bingo as a business, but not in Maryland. In this state, bingo must be for charity, so most bingo halls are not permanent, for-purpose venues. It's more likely that a charity will use their venue to host a bingo game fundraiser, making the space a temporary bingo hall. Because the venue might just become a bingo hall once a week or once a month, it can be difficult to spot where your nearest bingo halls are. That's what BingoPort is for! We list all your local bingo halls, along with useful info and reviews of the halls so you can decide which to visit. Think of BingoPort as your ultimate guide to bingo halls near you!

What happens during a game of bingo?

Bingo may be fast, but it's surprisingly easy to learn how to play. If you're completely new to bingo, reading over how the game works before you play will mean you have a much easier time playing your first game. Here's a rundown of how your average bingo game will go. Before the game starts, the players will arrive, collect their bingo cards, and take a seat. A bingo card has a 5x5 grid, and in each box is a random number between 1 and 75. The middle square will be a free space. Each bingo card will be different. At the start of the game, players will be told the winning pattern. This demonstrates which boxes on your bingo card you must mark to win the game. The pattern could be a line, a blackout, a shape- or anything! Then the game can begin, and it's eyes down. The bingo caller will draw and announce numbers. If you have the number they call on your card, mark it. The first player to mark every box needed for the winning pattern must shout BINGO before the next number is drawn. This announces that someone has won and stops the game.
