Like all of today's more traditional gambling games, bingo has a long and illustrious history. The game we know so well today being played in bingo halls up and down the UK is a very different beast from its beginnings. Probably the first real iteration of the game we know today was formed during the Renaissance in Italy in 1530 or thereabouts. Since then the game has morphed into the internet sensation it is today. In fact, it's one of the most popular games at all modern online casinos.
When it comes to finding the most sociable games of chance, then bingo is up there with the best of them. Sitting elbow to elbow, with all your friends on a Friday night at the local town hall is a great way to spend an evening. With the additional excitement of being able to win some great prizes including real cash, it's no surprise that bingo has spawned an online version that's now proving equally popular. In recognition towards the social aspects of playing, there are live dealer versions.
