What is a bingo hall?
A bingo hall is the name for anywhere that hosts a game of bingo. That could be a commercial bingo hall that has no other function, but in South Carolina, most bingo halls are actually other buildings that are just borrowed for bingo occasionally! Your local bingo hall might actually be your church, a nearby school, your town's fire station, or a local veterans' club. This can often mean it's difficult to know where bingo games are available near you; luckily, this is where BingoPort comes in! We list all your local bingo halls, along with information about the venue, the games, and the facilities on offer so you can make an informed choice when picking a bingo hall to visit. Whether your bingo hall has a day job as a business, a charitable venue, or a pillar of your community, you'll be able to find all the information you need about bingo near you in South Carolina right here.
How to Play Bingo
Bingo is a game that looks complicated because it's fast, but in reality it's quite simple to play! You need to get a couple of things sorted before the game begins, so it's good to arrive a little before the start time. You'll get bingo cards with a grid on; the grid is 5x5 with a free space in the middle. The grid will be filled with randomly-selected numbers between 1 and 75. When everyone is ready, the game will begin. The caller will usually announce the prize, as well as what the winning pattern is. This is simply which squares on the grid you need to mark in order to win; it could be a line, a diagonal, a full house, or something else! Once the game begins, the caller will draw and shout numbers from 1 to 75. Blot out the numbers called on your grid if you have them. The first player to match the winning pattern must shout BINGO before the next number is called in order to win! It's that simple! Often, there is more than one prize per round (like a line and a full house), and usually multiple games per night. Once the game ends, take a quick break, and then get ready for eyes down again!

What makes a bingo hall great?
Your idea of the perfect bingo hall is probably very different compared to other players'. That's why there isn't really a 'perfect' bingo hall that suits everyone; rather, you're looking for YOUR perfect hall. And what makes a hall great is really up to you! A great hall is going to be one that suits your needs. Whether that's a practical requirement like a parking lot, disability access, or nearby public transport, or something you'd just enjoy, like big jackpots, free entry, or snacks available, your perfect hall will fit your requirements. Consider the atmosphere; do you want a big, busy venue, or a quiet little hall with just a few regulars? All of these things can help you understand what you really want from your bingo experience, and will make choosing the right bingo hall easier for you.
Can I gamble in South Carolina?
Gambling is very restricted in South Carolina. The state is one of very few to have no casinos at all, including tribal casinos, and this is due to the very strict laws that do not permit many forms of gambling. There is a gambling cruise that leaves from South Carolina, but it is quite expensive. Even social table games (like a home poker game) are not permitted within the state. Strangely, a loophole in the law has led to "slot parlours" springing up in some cities, where players play for tickets, which they then exchange for winnings. Lottery is permitted in South Carolina; there is the South Carolina Education Lottery, as well as multi-state options. Charitable gambling is about the only other kind of gambling permitted in the state, and even that is very restricted. Many games are not allowed at all, even for charitable gambling. Luckily, bingo and raffles are both allowed if they meet the charitable gambling criteria!
