Understanding the game
Bingo is a game of numbers. There are tickets that are handed over to players and there are numbers on these tickets. There is a caller or a machine that calls out, reads out or displays numbers that are generated by the balls from a machine, by pulling out counters from a bag, or are generated by an electronic random number generator.
The design of a ticket has 27 blocks which are in 9 columns and 3 rows. Not all of the blocks are inscribed with numbers. These 9 columns have a set of numbers to cover. That is like the first column would cover numbers from 1 to 9, the second would cover from 11 to twenty and it will go on till the 9th column which covers numbers from 80 to 90.
Every line has that is every row has minimum and maximum of 5 numbers and the other blocks thus remain blank.
Now, when the players are all set with their tickets the caller starts with the calling of numbers and the players start with striking off the numbers if they appear on the ticket. The moment any player finishes a line he needs to call saying for example first line or first two lines and so on.
The caller also does the job of verifying the tickets and thus declaring the winners. The first player to finish the complete set of numbers on the ticket is the winner and he needs to call out saying bingo.
