What is a bingo hall?
A bingo hall is any venue that hosts a bingo game for people to come and enjoy. A bingo hall could be a for-purpose commercial bingo venue, or it could be somewhere that serves another purpose too, like a church, a school, or a social club. As long as it holds bingo games, it can be called a bingo hall! The great thing about bingo halls is that often, each one is different. There is so much variety and personality, players can choose a bingo hall that suits them. Bingo halls may differ, but they will all be set up roughly the same when it comes to bingo night. There will be chairs and tables, somewhere to buy your bingo cards, and a place for the bingo caller to stand where they can be seen and heard. Aside from that, bingo halls can be very different from one another! But one thing they will all have in common is that you can enjoy a fantastic game or two of bingo there.
How does a game of bingo work?
Bingo is a fast game, and so many of those who play it play regularly enough to become experts. It can be kind of intimidating to watch a game of bingo if you don't know what's going on! Luckily, bingo is a lot more simple than it looks. Here's your guide to exactly how to play bingo! When you arrive at the bingo venue, you'll need to buy your bingo cards. Each bingo card is a 5x5 grid full of numbers between 1 and 75, with a blank space in the middle. When the game begins, the bingo caller will draw numbers randomly and call them out. Players must daub the number on their card if they have it. The aim is to daub all the boxes required to match the winning pattern. The winning pattern could be any number of things- a line, a full house, or a shape- so check at the start of the game which boxes you're aiming to daub. The first player to complete the winning pattern needs to quickly shout BINGO before the next number is called! That's the way to declare that you've won but you must be fast. Once the game has been won, the player will receive a prize, and then a new game can begin!

What makes a great bingo hall?
Bingo halls are so varied, and especially in Washington where both commercial and charitable bingo is legal! That means players have a great range of halls to choose from. The main thing is that your bingo hall is right for you. There's no such thing as the perfect hall, only the hall that's perfect for you. If you love a big, crazy bingo hall with huge prizes and plenty of competition, a commercial hall might be a good fit for you. But if you prefer a smaller, more close-knit bingo hall, a charity game might be ideal. There are all kinds of things to consider when looking for your ideal hall. Do you want big prizes on offer? Would you enjoy playing in support of a charity? What facilities does the hall offer? You may like a venue that offers a smoking shelter, a parking lot, or refreshments. See what's available, and choose a hall that offers things you like!
Washington and Gambling
Washington is incredibly strict when it comes to online gambling, which is a felony in the state. However, there are plenty of forms of gambling that are permitted in Washington. Tribal casinos are very common, and are popular with fans of table games and slot machines alike. Technically, the machines are 'lottery machines' rather than slot machines thanks to a legal technicality, but for a user, they operate just the same. There are no casinos other than tribal venues, but there are many poker and card rooms across the state, both tribal and private businesses. Sports betting is illegal in Washington, though pari-mutuel betting on horse racing is permitted both on- and off-site. Lottery tickets are permitted in Washington, though there is no multi-state lottery that includes Washington currently. Due to the strict online gambling laws, tickets must be bought in person, not online. Bingo is legal, both for charity and through commercial bingo halls, but again, not online. This is great news, as it means there will be plenty of bingo venues available to choose from in Washington!
