Rock Out With Rock and Roll Bingo !

Bingo is a 500 year old game is constantly evolving. Bingo has been adopted for a variety of purposes and the modern version of the game was first used in Germany to teach various school subjects. In the late 90’s bingo went online and the rest is history. Today there are hundreds of bingo sites online providing players with several versions of the game. There are 90 ball, 75 ball, 80 ball and 30 ball bingo games. Last year one enterprising bingo fan in Ireland offered drive in bingo as a way to beat the national smoking ban. The game was well received and has spread to other areas of the UK.

Now a bingo fan from Leeds in the UK has come up with a new twist on an old game’ Rock and Roll bingo.  Mike Walsh is a bingo fan from Leeds who loves rock and roll. He has created a game which combines the two and many bingo experts are predicting a very bright future for rock and roll bingo. The game appeals to baby boomers that are entering retirement age and fit the typical bingo demographic. Boomers were the first generation to grow up with rock and roll and most still listen to classic rock. Many are predicting that rock and roll bingo will appear at bingo sites very soon.

In traditional bingo the game is played on numbered cards arranged on a grid. Numbers are market with a dauber and at bingo sites numbers are marked using the auto daub feature. Numbers are marked as the caller calls out the numbers. Rock and roll bingo cards are a little different. Instead of numbers rock and roll bingo cards contain song titles and the names of famous bands. Instead of calling a number the caller plays a short part of a song from a special CD with 90 tracks that match the printed cards. The tracks are selected at random using a process similar to the auto shuffle available on most CD players. Rock and roll bingo still uses card patterns but players are no longer limited to numbers and letters.

Walsh has tested the game at pubs and reports that now tens of thousands of people are playing rock and roll bingo. Rumor has it that a version for online bingo sites is in the works and will be available in the near future. A television version of rock and roll bingo has been proposed and it looks like Walsh’s new game has a bright future.
