Bingo Fun Facts

  • There are two main versions of Bingo, the British version and American. It is believed that the British version goes all the way back to the 16th century, originating from the Italian lottery called Il Gioco del Lotto d'Italia. From there Bingo spread to France and, in the 18th century, to Great Britain and other European countries. The American version of Bingo, on the other hand, originated in the 1920's and was originally called 'Beano'. First played in carnivals, a traveling New York toy salesman by the name of Edwin Lowe changed the name to 'Bingo', worked with a math professor to create roughly 6,000 unique bingo card, and manufactured and distributed the game to households across the country
  • The same Edwin Lowe also developed and distributed Yahtzee and, in 1973, he sold his company to Milton Bradley for $26 million.
  • It's well known that Bingo is commonly played in churches, which also happens to trace back to Lowe. Not long after first distributing the game, a priest from Pennsylvania reached out to Lowe about using Bingo to raise money for the church. Fast forward a few years and by the middle of 1930 about 10,000 church based bingo games were being played weekly
  • Many casinos offer their players the opportunity to play bingo. And yes, Lowe himself built a casino hotel on the Vegas strip called the Tallyho Inn. Fast forward to today, and it is estimated that $4.6 billion dollars are spent annually in just North America.
