Bingo 1-0-1

Bingo is undergoing a resurgence in popularity, this is thanks to the fact that this game is constantly releasing new and innovative games, such as rainbow riches bingo which combines Irish folklore with prizes and bonus offers. Originating in Italy during the 1500s, this game has certainly come a long way.

Legend has it that the modern name for the game was coined by New York inventor Edwin S. Lowe. who got the term from a travelling fair. While it is mostly played in halls as it has grown, online offerings have cropped up alongside brick-and-mortar establishments.

When you visit a bingo hall in Thunder Bay, there are very few things you need to do. Take some cash with you for drinks, as most halls will have refreshments to offer, and you will need to buy your bingo books. Some people like to bring their own bingo dabbers, making it easier to cross off numbers as they are called out.
