Randy’s Bingo Lingo

What did he just say?

Buy-In or Package:

All customers must purchase a paper package and/or electronic computer.  This “pack” is sold at a given price and is generally required to participate in some bingo session(s) or play certain optional games.

Border Colors:

Bingo halls typically use colored paper to distinguish the various games played from each other.

Double Action:

A bingo card that has two numbers in each square.  Players only need one number to complete the square.  Since each card has twice as many numbers as a regular bingo card, you get double the daubing action!  Also called dual daub.

Crazy Way:

Means the bingo pattern rotates in 90-degree increments.

Easy Way:

A bingo pattern that includes the “Free” space.  In double and triple bingo, it allows the four outside corners to count as a bingo.

Faces or 12 On, 18 On, 24 On:

The number of cards per bingo sheet.

Hard Way:

A bingo pattern that does not include the “Free” space.

Wild Number:

Some bingo games are played with wild numbers.  When a wild # is used, a player marks (daubs) all the numbers that end with the wild #.  For example if the caller announces that the wild # is “33”, the player marks out all of his/her numbers that end in a “3” (3, 13, 23, 33, 43, 53, 63, 73)


Same idea as Wild #.  The first ball called determines if odd or even numbers are wild.  If the first ball is an odd number, all of the odd numbers are marked out (1, 3, 5, 7, etc.).  The same idea applies if the first ball is an even number.
