The Great Gatsby and the American Bingo Dream

The premier of The Great Gatsby has arrived and audiences have waited in what is expected to be a blockbuster hit. A novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1925 became one of his greatest works but unfortunately not until after he died in 1940.

The great writer went to his grave believing the Great Gatsby was a miserable failure selling only 20,000 copies. It was during World War ll when his book became part of the high school curriculum and gained noted popularity in stage and film adaptations.

The Great Gatsby depicts American society in the 1920's and a culture that believes in the land of opportunity. It was and still is a society driven to succeed and achieve the American dream.

The Bingo Dream landed and planted firmly on American soil where it flourished like a well- kept garden that grew into a landscape that swept across the country.

75 ball bingo was introduced in the 1920's right around the time that The Great Gatsby was hot off the presses and put on book shelves. Edwin S. Lowe invented the Bingo card as well as changing its name from 'beano'.

The 75 ball Bingo card measures 5 x 5 inches with 25 squares featuring a Free space in the center. Winning a bingo is accomplished in several ways including filling numbers across, diagonal and a Coverall.

Over time the game advanced from the simplicity of straight line wins to patterns. The pattern designs are creative and have hundreds of possible winning shapes, symbols and pictures. The popularity has spread across the UK offering the best of Bingo integrating 90 ball and 75 ball gaming options. Swimming across the pond is upstream all the way with two dynamic ways to play.

Whether or not The Great Gatsby released cinema hitting the silver screen in theatres today is Academy Award winning Oscar material, one thing for sure is the novel will live on forever and a day.

Legends are not born every day and success is enduring the test of time. Reaching millionaire status like the Gatsby himself or by winning a million dollar Coverall at an online bingo site doesn't make the man.

What does is what touches the foundation of who we are and the effects these great icons leave behind in their path. Making your way to the top is a vision we all wish to attain and with true grit talent or a dream we put into reality it can be done.

Fitzgerald and Lowe would have never predicted the success of two phenomenal sensations that are in the fabric of the American Dream.
