Different variations of Bingo
The game of Bingo has always been popular, and as time went by it
mutated, evolved, changed and spawned a plethora of variations giving
the enthusiast plenty of games to choose from. Here are a couple of the
most common types of Bingo that one might encounter.
Bingo is a common variation of Bingo and it sort of works the other way
around when compared to the normal idea of a Bingo game. Instead of the
players marking down numbers that are randomly selected, they mark down
whichever numbers they wish and then see if they’ve won.
Quick Shot Bingo is a variation of Bingo where numbers are drawn
before the players get their cards, and in this variation of the game
the players purchase sealed bingo cards. These sealed cards are then
compared with the already drawn numbers and when a certain pattern is
realized then the owner of the card wins a prize. There are also
variations on this variation based on different patterns, or whether or
not the game is played till a player achieves a top level prize, this
means that a game of Quick Shot Bingo can last from a few days to maybe
even months depending on the difficulty of achieving a top level prize.
Bonanza Bingo is similar to Quick Shot Bingo in that there are
forty-three numbers that are pre-drawn at the beginning of the game and
then players purchase sealed
which are matched against the numbers. The caller will then ask if
anyone has Bingo, and if no one does, he will then draw one more ball.
This variation of the game is usually played as a “progressive” game,
meaning that the jackpot will increase as more cards are sold and if
nobody has Bingo after the single ball is drawn. The players have to
keep their cards for the next session of the game which may be taking
place the next day or following week or even later. In each following
session a single ball is drawn and players are allowed to purchase more
sealed cards until someone achieves a cover-all.
Horse Racing Bingo is a fast paced variation of Bingo which implies
that fifteen players are randomly issued a number from one to fifteen
which correspond with the top row of the bingo flashboard. Numbers are
then drawn and the first person to have all five numbers in their column
