BINGO: The game of chance

It is said that the only permanent thing in this world is change. And included in our everyday lives are the problems and difficulties that people come across and will continuously encounter in life's never ending battle.

It is always proven that even though people come from a long day of work, they still find time to relax just to ease the pain and take away the stress. Some prefer to watch movies, go to the spa or even simply dine out and a conversation over a cup of coffee. However, other people find enjoyment and a way of releasing stress through playing bingo.

This is one of the most popular and simplest forms of recreational games. This game doesn't require a person to have an educational degree before they can play bingo. As a matter of fact, it can be played anywhere. We can see people playing this game on the side of the street with neighbors using an improvised cards and a small bottle with numbers on it. Or it can also be played at a place where there is a big screen with numbers that was already called and players need to follow a certain pattern.

The game bingo is what many call "the game of chance". Each player has one or more printed bingo cards that have a set of numbers on it and they just need to place markers when the number was drawn and announced by the caller or the host. The first person to complete the five letter word B-I-N-G-O in a given pattern like vertical, horizontal, diagonal will be declared the winner.

Since bingo is played anywhere, the prizes vary and depend on the entire contestant's choice and the price of each card. But regardless of its prizes, people find this game addictive just like other recreational games because a player has a tendency to participate and take part in this game even after repetitive losses.

People who are playing bingo have their own reasons for playing. Some people play just for fun and release of stress. But, unfortunately some are getting too addictive to this game and make it a part of their daily routines that causes them to lose more money or worst some of their assets and properties.

We need to bear in mind that bingo and some of the other recreational games are made for a single purpose - simply for fun and enjoyment. So let us not abuse ourselves by putting so much attention to this game and ended up being addicted to it.
