Bingo Caller 75 is a great home bingo game for fun sessions with family and friends. With physical bingo games, when you want to play you find that half the pieces are missing. Bingo Caller 75 is always right there, ready for an exciting game. So how does it work?
The first thing you’ll see is a smart bingo board with the word “BINGO” down the left hand side. There are five rows of numbers – 1-15, 16-30, 31-45, 46-60 and 61-75.
Click the “Start Game” button and the Current Call box lights up with a coloured ball and inside the ball, a letter and number. The letter / number combination is a great idea because it makes it much easier to find the number on the card. For example, if the number is N36 it means you go to the “N” of “BINGO” on the left hand side. 36 will be in that row. This is much quicker than having to search the whole card.
You’re in control of the play
You have control over how fast or slow the gameplay is because you have a Pause button that will freeze the play on the current ball. (There’s a handy reminder in the “Current Call” box, of how many balls you’ve called so far). With Pause on, you can be as creative as you like in entertaining friends and family with your special calls for each ball. When you’re ready, just click “Next Ball” to continue.
As the caller, you can see all the numbers that have already been called, highlighted on the card in front of you. And you can reset the board after someone wins, simply by clicking the “Reset Board” button.
Timing is everything!
The timer slider is a great feature that allows you to set how quickly the next ball comes up. Move it to the right for faster play – perhaps a group of adults who have played before. Or move to the left for slower play, to allow younger players time to find the numbers. When you click on the slider button, a small balloon appears that tells you the seconds before the next ball appears. The shortest interval is 5 seconds, the longest 16 seconds. If you move the slider as far leftwards as far as it will go, the timer is turned off, and you are effectively in manual mode.
Of course you can also use the Pause button and the “Next Ball” button to control the game manually.
You can print your own bingo cards. As you call, the players, fill in their cards. The first person to get all their numbers, traditionally shouts “House” but you may have your own, better versions!
For children, there are special simple bingo cards with just twenty numbers. These are great for children’s parties or rainy days at home. Of course, you’re going to want to add small prizes for the winner – just make sure it’s something the winner can share with the other children!
The game is actually a good educational tool for children who are beginning to recognise numbers, as they get to practise their new skill in a fun environment.
Simple to learn and use
The great thing about Bingo Caller 75, is that the makers have avoided the temptation to put too many features on it. Instead, they have a clear and simple screen which will have you up and calling your first game in seconds. In fact, the children can take turns as callers!
So that’s it – a great game, quick to learn, fun to play, with a few easy to use controls that put you in charge of the gameplay – an all round winner.
