In order to play Bingo, you must understand the rules of the game. Although it does not take any set skill to play the game understanding the rules is necessary. In Bingo, players are given cards that have both letters and numbers. Bingo is spelled out across the top of the card and each letter is a column with numbers below it. The middle position on the card is a free position which helps the player to win a line. Numbers are called that are drawn by the dealer, such as “B5”. The player would then check their card for a B5 and should they have it cross it off as a box earned. A winner wins when they fill all the positions in column either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
