Bingo calling is an art form unto itself. A great caller can make or break your experience. So what skills do you need to be the ultimate bingo caller?

Since bingo hit the web, it's had something of a resurgence, changing seemingly overnight from an activity almost exclusively reserved for the blue-rinse brigade to one that's popular amongst players of all ages and backgrounds. Bingo websites aren't the only new development though; smartphone apps can bring a whole new dimension to your enjoyment of online bingo.

As you may have guessed by now, we’re nuts for all things bingo, and love any excuse to squeeze an extra game into our day! Bingo is tons of fun for everyone, and also makes a fantastic ice-breaker at a party or event. Bingo comes in all shapes and sizes (we’re rather fond of all of them) so how about getting creative and throwing your friend a bingo-themed baby shower? Here are some ideas for things to include on your own DIY boards. Gift-guessing the bingo board How about creating a board full of prospective gifts? You can hand out empty or partially-filled bingo cards and get fellow guests to fill in the squares with the gifts they think the mum-to-be will most likely receive. An extra special prize for the most obscure - but correct - gift guess!
Bingo lingo then and now
F Fabien   January 07, 2017   1531   0   1   0   0   0
The bingo world has a language all of its own - we like to call it 'bingo lingo' - and it goes back to the earliest days of the game. Bingo callers would liven up proceedings by using rhymes or descriptions of each number as they called it out, and many of these have made it into our everyday lives. There's the politically incorrect 'two fat ladies' to describe the shape of the number 88, which then became the title of a BBC2 cookery show featuring Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson-Wright. 'Legs eleven' is another descriptive term, for obvious reasons when you look at the number 11 - and it's unusual in that the number itself forms part of the call. Other classic bingo calls were based on rhymes rather than descriptions, such as 'Dirty Gertie' for number 30, while the round numbers are still often...
A funny thing happened at the bingo...

In the days before online bingo swept the nation, some weird and wonderful things happened at local bingo games across the UK. Read on to find out how one player's bingo bonus had four legs and a bell. Weirdest bingo prize ever Many years ago, a small rural pub held a bingo night in aid of worthy causes and local residents donated prizes, including a portable television and other electrical items. One smartly-clad business woman, stopping off at the pub merely for a bite to eat on her way home from a business meeting, was persuaded to try her hand at bingo. Fate played a hand when the lady, a city-dweller, won the star prize of a milking cow. Sadly, she had to return her prize, as the likelihood of fitting a cow in her hatchback was slim. Welcome to...
Bride-to-be bingo!

When it comes to organising a hen party, you already know what you're up against. Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to ensure the hens (and bride-to-be) have the night of their lives, that everyone gets along (making sure that nobody gets left out of the gang) and that the bride-to-be can thoroughly de-stress after all the challenging wedding organising she's been doing. You want to make sure there are enough laughs that everyone gets a great abs workout and that it's a brilliantly memorable night for all the right reasons. But choosing hen events is difficult, especially if you've got a group of ladies that all know the bride-to-be really well but not each other.
How much do you know about the history of bingo?

Bingo is one of the most popular games in the UK, with more and more people signing up to play, especially online, every day. However, although it is one of our nation's favourite pastimes, lots of people still don't know too much about the history of bingo, and how it became so popular. So, with that in mind, here's a short history of bingo, from its inception to the modern day! The Beginnings of bingo Bingo began in Italy as a lottery called Lo Giuoco del Lotto d'Italia. The Lo Giuoco del Lotto d'Italia was first organised in 1530, to celebrate the unification of Italy and help to develop a new national culture. It worked, and soon the game was being played across the country. It then spread to France and Germany, where it was played both as a lottery game, and used...

Charles Darwin, the English Naturalist and geologist brought us the theory of evolution. He established that all species of life have descended through time from common ancestors. Many years later Sir David Attenborough has explained that he feels the evidence all over the planet clearly shows evolution to be the best way to explain the diversity of life. Charles Le Brun, a French painter, art theorist and philosopher studied the relationship between facial features and character. In his work, ’’Treatise on facial expression,’’ Le Brun painted surprising images showing what humans would have looked like if they had directly evolved from different animals. The results are fascinating. Do you recognise anyone? LION BEAR BOAR BULL CAMEL ...

"Some people don't like change", write the daring people at Rebel Bingo, the bingo-cum-avant garde performance collective that is currently shaking up the gaming world with an experimental breed of sequins, glamour, noise and hype. With a manifesto that outlines their humble origins, as well as the numerous opponents the group has come to terms with, it's clear that there's a new and unorthodox player in the bingo world, a rebel with a cause who is not playing quietly.

Christmas is right around the corner, and yet this time of year can feel bittersweet for many families. It’s easy to forget how recently technology began to dominate our lives. When we were growing up, most of us didn’t have mobile phones, computer games were a fad rather than a way of life, and the internet was something that was alien to us. But now, every Christmas I look around at my family, each isolated in their own little world, face lit up by the glare of a screen, and I wonder how we came to this point. Now, family time means being in the same room but the only connection that is made is an internet connection.

The days of playing bingo merely for the chance of winning the price of a good meal now seem firmly in the past. As technology has marched on in our ever changing world, so have the stakes that we play for. Bingo was initially a game which presented the opportunity to win a few pounds while enjoying a night in the local bingo hall or social club. It was a great way for people to get together and to socialise, but perhaps not a way to make their fortunes!
