Bingo is a game of pure chance, involving no particular skill or requirement other than to keep up with play. Formerly known in the United Kingdom as ‘housey-housey,' Bingo is a traditional game and a long-time favorite of the British holiday camps and cruise ships for many years now. It is said to have originated in Italy in the 1500s before migrating to the UK, France, and other European countries in the 1700s. Now it's here for you to enjoy! A caller calls out letter and number coordinates that you mark on your card - the first player to mark a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line yells "Bingo!" and wins the pot. It's a fun way to spend time in the afternoon and meet some new people.
