The Bingo phenomenon is sweeping the nation. Everywhere you look, there’s another Bingo hall or party. The cards are coming out in the mail. The TV ads are promoting Bingo. But the real question is: How can you play Bingo from your iPad?
The official term for Bingo is “Baccarat” and it’s game basically is an over-the-top version of “pass the word”. Bingo is a simple, fun game to play with your friends, is easy to learn, and will help you practice anything from basic language vocabulary to historical fact and math. Plus, everybody can play the game with you, no matter how low of a skill you may have. And best of all, with an iPad, you can make your own, custom Bingo cards using nothing more than a hot new iPad and some blank Bingo card sheets.
You can get the free Bingo sheets online (the links are at the end of this article) but if you really want to win big, you need some practice. A lot of people get into bingo playing because they think it’s easy. They think that all you have to do is enter in a bingo number, tell a bingo operator what that number is, and hey presto, the numbers are coming up. However, winning real money is a different thing.
Real money games like bingo are based on pattern recognition. When you play free Bingo, you’re not using pattern recognition. You’re simply sorting random cards. If students find certain squares on Bingo cards, the chances are that these squares can form words. And students find word pairs on the Bingo cards – they click on one pair and read what the words look like.
The way the bingo game works is simple: players accumulate cards. They pile them up in front of them. Then, students find words and place their mouse over them. When students find a square with the letters they’re looking for, the corresponding number is added to the students’ bingo sheet. The person who wins gets the square – and the pot grows. It’s that simple.
Now, let me tell you a little bit about how the game is played in a casino. Most casinos, of course, don’t have anything on the floor other than the standard Bingo cards. The only items they have are the standard Bingo squares. Players take turns rolling the balls over these squares until someone hits them, which triggers a loud beep. If there’s no winning bingo when the last ball hits the square, the player gets a “low” and is out, as well as the prize money.
