The Italian lottery game spread to countries all over the world with the basic concept of a card with numbers arranged in to horizontal and vertical lines.テつ The pitchman calls out numbers and the first person to complete a line is the winner.テつ A New York toy salesman saw enormous potential for the game but thank goodness he didn’t stick with his game’s original name at the time.

In 1929 Edwin Lowe witnessed a variation of Lotto called Beano.テつ Players would placed dried beans on their card if a number was called out that they had.テつ Lowe began playing Beano at his home with friends.テつ It was during one session that a female participant won the game but was so excited that instead of calling out “Beano” she yelled “Bingo!”テつ Lowe took the name for the game and the name stuck.

Good luck at qualifying for our World Record Rock & Roll Bingo!
