Bingo is a game of long tradition; there are a few theories about where it came from. Some even indicate it was born in the heart of the Roman Empire. However, the prevailing theory refers to an Italian game of XIV century denominated “Lo Giocco del lotto d’Italia” (Italy lottery game)”.With time the game-still not baptized as bingo- arrive in France where people started to play it with the same rules that are usually used at the present time: numbered cardboards and someone with an elevated tone of voice read the numbers.
Bingo started to spread around Europe thanks to high-class society and by a few that found in the game away of teaching children.
Another great jump that took the game (we cannot call it bingo yet), was its crossing through the Atlantic Ocean: it was taken to America and settle in festivals, fairs, and squares. As the players marked the cardboards with beans, they shouted “Beano” when the cardboard was full, because of the derivation of the word “beans”.
At least, that what the legend indicates. The same one that says a New York manufacturer of toys felled in love with the game when seeing a group of people playing “Beano” in a fair at Atlanta in 1929 and started to practice with friends. One of them was the one who shouted, in the middle of the incomparable emotion to win, “Bingo” instead of “Beano”. Since then, that name stayed.
