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.
