National Bingo Day


TODAY.. IS NATIONAL BINGO DAY! THE GAME USED TO BE CALLED “BEANO” IN THE UNITED STATES. ACCORDING TO LEGEND — A TOYMAKER WAS CALLING THE NUMBERS FOR A GAME OF BEANO IN 19-29 WHEN SOMEONE ACCIDENTALLY YELLED “BINGO” INSTEAD OF “BEANO.” HE LIKED THAT WORD BETTER, AND IT STUCK AS THE NEW NAME OF THE GAME. YOU CAN CELEBRATE NATIONAL BINGO DAY BY PLAYING ON AN APP ON YOUR PHONE — OR FINDING A LOCAL BINGO HALL TO PLAY AT.
