Costa Bingo Brings Bingo Languages Closer to Players

Widely used bingo calls graphically translated

In order to make it all easier on its punters, the British online bingo site Costa Bingo has introduced an interesting feature - an explanation of the often puzzling calls used in the game, illustrating them with a graphic interpretation.

The company has titled its new product the Bingo Lingo and it's presented as a glossary infographic which will serve as a point of reference for both bingo beginners and veterans, explaining how each number got its own unique call.

According to Costa Bingo, since bingo is a mostly British pastime, each call-out has been influenced by a diversity of elements in British society.

For example, number 64 is given to The Beatles for their lyric "When I'm 64;" also, The Bee Gees have received a bingo call-out with the 85 being known as "Staying Alive".

In addition to many other cultural and society relations, many call-outs carry names of famous Brits, such as Bobby Moore, Ned Kelly, Tom Mix, and Danny Le Rue, as well as some fictional characters like Oliver Twist and Herbie.
