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.
