Historians have found similar games in bingo and lotto that has been played at the Roman empire on public places. Unfortunately, there are only very few writings left in this respect even. It's hard to find what were the rules of this old game.
In the Middle Ages, there was no trace of bingo, yet it may have continued under a new form. But the game still appeared during the 16th century in Italy under the name "Lo Giuco de Lotto", which gave birth in the name Loto.
Lo Giuco of Lotto had the rules very similar to those of the bingo. This game was also played in public litters and markets. In addition, profits were generally distributed to charity. After a while the name has changed again to become "Beano" and that's where the bingo name comes from. The name Beano means the beans that were used to mark the numbers.
During the 17th and 18th centuries, the bingo made its first appearance in Australia. At first, it was an exclusive game practiced only by the elites. Little by little BINGO started to conquer the world from the 19th century in different variants. In Mexico Bingo gains were redistributed to the Church.
The creation of modern bingo
During the 20th century, an American toy merchant named Edwin Lowe perfected the bingo. It is he who created the form we know and love today. That's why this game is very popular in the United States. To create the multiple combinations found on the bingo grid, he asked for help to a mathematical teacher, Carl Leffer. He would have created more than 6 thousand and, according to the legend, that made him lose reason.
Today, bingo is very popular among enthusiasts of betting games around the world. Especially in the United States, Canada and Belgium. Thanks to technological advances today, it is available on the Digital Game Platforms. That is to say, you can enjoy this classic game at home while comfortable with your sofa!
