# Learn How to Play Bingo

In the game of Bingo, the objective is to attain a series of numbers in a card to run in a pattern of 5 numbers in a line. What you will need to play Bingo would be some Bingo cards, Bingo game set, markers, and an announcer. The Bingo cards typically have the word “BINGO” spelled out horizontally on the top of the card. Directly below it would be a series of 24 random numbers and a free space in the middle, placed in 5 by 5 grids. The Bingo game set usually comes with either balls or coins with numbers on them is used to be drawn randomly later. The markers can be something like a pen or small, flat round objects that just cover enough of a number on the Bingo card.

To play the game, first take a Bingo card from the host and grab a seat. You will need to mark the free space in the middle of your card with your marker. This free space that is marked is counted in the game, so if you form a series of 5 numbers including the free space, the win is yours. But Bingo is a game of luck and reflex. The game begins by the announcer calling out a letter and a number, for example “B-5”. The first reaction to take is to look at the grid column under the letter “B” of the word BINGO. Then, look through to see if you have the number “5”. If you do, mark it with your marker, but if you do not, then wait for the next number. Basically, this is how the game goes, until someone gets 5 numbers lined in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally. When this happens, the person will need to mark the last number that the announcer mentioned, and then call out “BINGO!” Once your numbers are verified by the host, you can claim your prize. However, if someone else calls Bingo before you, they win.

This exciting game can be played with friends and family, but if they do not have the time, you can look for free bingo games on the Internet. Simple type “free bingo games” in your search query ad you will find a variety available.
