Bingo Calling names - what is the caller saying?

The modern day Bingo calling game has a fairly specific calling patterns, and rather boring. To aid recognition of the numbers and ease of fast delivery, the old names have sadly been eliminated. The numbers will come at you at a great gust of knots in a modern club - the patterns are like this. All double digit numbers (with some exceptions), let's say 45, would be pronounced as such: Four and five, forty five. If its a single number, such as 2, then its: Two, on its own, number 2. The exception to the double number pronunciation rule, is when a double number is with both numbers the same, such as 88, this would be pronounced as: All the eights, eighty eight.

Online Bingo Games are not any different in the way that they are called to land based Bingo Hall games. Although the games is electronic, each number that comes up is called by voice also. But sadly once again with online Bingo there is absolutely no interaction between the number called and the old style calling names.

Most modern day callers pretty much stick to this pattern, but there are variations on it - and occasionally you hear the odd echo of the old name. I've heard some callers do a nine oh, blind ninety, but they are few and far between in my experience.

Whether you prefer bingo, poker or casino games like online roulette at online casinos, you never need to leave home again to get your gambling fix.
