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.
Back in the day, a typical working-class Friday and Saturday evening would be spent with hundreds of others packing a town or village hall hunched over their bingo cards. But thanks to improvements in internet speeds and data costs, it's now possible to play bingo online. But before you begin either an online or offline game, it's good to know the different types of bingo on offer. All the rules are going to be similar. But the gameplay, in the manner the cards are completed, may be different.
