Bingo is played in halls. Bingo rules and payouts and play variations vary from place to place. Bingo brochures detailing particular games, rules and payouts are usually available at each respective location.
A series of bingo games usually takes more than an hour to play and can provide more fun at a lower cost than the same time spent at blackjack or craps. A typical set of games might cost $20 for 10 games with four cards for each game. Prizes usually run $100 or more for each game. You must listen carefully as each game may require something different to win: a diagonal line, a number in each corner (four corners), four, six or even eight numbers together (picture frame), or a cover-all where you play until somebody covers every number on their card.
Stand in line and buy your game packet from the cashier. Find a seat, spread out your game cards, and listen for which game (usually with a color) is first and which cover wins. There are light-up bingo cards on the walls to help.
It used to be that those who wanted to play bingo needed to get to a bingo hall. Bingo halls often had limited open hours and the nearest one could be a decent trip away.
