Bingo is one of the most exciting King Casino games to play, whether it be online or in the brick-and-mortar bingo hall. Part of the excitement, and what keeps it so interesting, is the classic bingo call. A bingo call usually revolves around nicknames for the numbers of the balls that are chosen, but we will have a look at what that means in closer detail shortly.
For this reason, the bingo caller is fundamental to a game of bingo. This is why it is often the case that you will have real people calling out the numbers in online bingo as well as bingo in the flesh, and these online bingo callers will be live-streamed alongside the game, making the experience more authentic overall.
Therefore, it is important to understand what the bingo caller is talking about regardless of whether you choose to play bingo in the physical hall or its virtual counterpart. A good place to start is to take a look at a list of the bingo calls. But where can you find such a list?
What is a Bingo Call?
In a game of bingo, there are 99 balls in a dome (physical or virtual), and each of these balls will have a different number written on them, between 1 and 99. The job of the bingo caller is to choose a ball at random.
Players will have 9 numbers, and every time the bingo caller calls out one of their numbers, they will mark it off on their sheet of paper, or it will be automatically chalked off if playing online.
The interesting thing is, each of these numbers will have its own nickname. And it’s these nicknames
Where Can I Find All the Bingo Calls?
The good old internet will show you all of the bingo calls. Just have a quick Google search and you’ll find them!
Nevertheless, you do not ever actually have to know all of the bingo calls. Sure, bingo callers in the flesh will likely spend more time repeating the nickname of the bingo number as opposed to the number itself as they will assume that people know most of the calls, but if you keep an ear out you will always hear the original number being called as well.
If you are playing online, you really do not have anything to worry about. The reason for this is that in most bingo games, as soon as your number is called, it will be automatically chalked off of your scoreboard or counting sheet.
Even if this is not the case, you will see the number displayed quite clearly on the display in almost all cases, which means that you don’t actually have to listen, although you still do need to keep your eyes open so you don’t miss out!
Anyway, bingo calls are a lot of fun and if you are going to become an avid bingo player, it’s good to know what they are. Either way, you’ll find out some time. Have fun!
