Bingo is a game of chance played with different randomly drawn numbers which players match against numbers that have been pre-printed on 5×5 cards. At Westwind, the cards are printed on paper and are referred to as cards. The game concludes when the first person achieves a specified pattern from the drawn numbers.
The winner is required to call out the word “Bingo!”, which alerts the other players and caller of a possible win. All wins are checked to make sure the person has not made a mistake before the win is officially confirmed at which time the prize is secured and a new game is begun. In this version of bingo, players compete against one another for the prize or jackpot.
