When you win at bingo it is common for the winning to yell "BINGO" loud enough for the caller to hear. He will then come over and check your bingo card to see if you did indeed win, the bingo manager usually has the final say.

If more than one person calls out bingo on the same number, the winnings are then divided between them.

Know The Rules Before You Play Bingo

Be sure to read the posted rules before beginning to play bingo. Never try to modify a bingo card! It is not worth it, and all experienced bingo managers or callers will pick it up. Follow the rules and be honest.

Common Bingo Rules

  • No under 18 years of age.
  • Reserving specific cards are not allowed.
  • Friends or family are prohibited to watch you play.
  • If you have bingo it is purely your decision whether you want to call it or not before the next number is called.
  • Bingo MUST be claimed on the most-recent number called.
  • If the next number is being announced it is too late to call bingo.
  • Bring a photo ID in case you win a large jackpot, as players are required to supply a Social Security card and fill out earnings and tax reporting forms on the spot at some bingo halls.
  • The hall may reserve the right to promote winners or winning cards.
