Bingo in United States
Invented in 1929, Bingo has since developed a number of variations. In general it is played with 75 balls in the US, and cards are squares of 5x5 with a Free square in the middle. The game is often played in churches or charity organizations as fundraisers, but it is also popular to play for money. Commercial Bingo games are offered in most states’ casinos and Native American gambling establishments.
Overall, offline US Bingo is mostly a low stakes game, with a higher level of continuous popularity among middle-aged and elderly female players than among other segments of the population.
Online Bingo in United States
US Bingo online, however, is a different story. A recent study suggests that the US is paired with Japan for first place when it comes to online Bingo players, and is even ahead of the Bingo-crazed UK. While there are not any online Bingo sites hosted in the US, there are still plenty of sites that accept US players, and finding one is easy.
The best part about playing Bingo online in the US is that the games keep the social element that is so important to Bingo. Chat rooms let players talk with each other all through the game. In the end, playing US internet Bingo is just like playing regular Bingo, the only difference is that the players never have to leave home.
