You can play bingo for a very long time; it is a very old game, but now you can also play bingo online! Initially bingo comes from 16thcentury Italy, where it sprouted from the lotto. The current name comes from the word beano, or bean, because in former times beans were used cover the numbers in the boxes. Beano became popular in Germany in 1929. Aside from the fact that the game was played with wooden shelves back then, the bingo game rules were very similar to the way we play bingo these days.
After an American named Lowe brought the game to America, the game was quickly called bingo, and became very popular. Paper sheets replaced the wooden shelves, because there were little possible combinations. A mathematician named Carl Leffer subsequently made over 6000 number combinations, which increased the popularity of the game even further, and the game, as we know it was born.
