The Benefits Of Bingo Over Other Gambling Games

Do a Google search using the word “gambling” and you will get thousands of pages of results featuring all sorts of games ranging from poker, blackjack and other casino games to bingo, horse racing and football – and these are just a few possibilities! Assuming that you’re a novice who simply wants to try out a gambling game, how would you know where to start?

A simple answer to this question is to figure out what the “best” game is and simply play that. But among the multitude of results displayed by Google you will find contradicting information: one website might advise you to focus on horse racing because it’s fun, while another might tell you that casino games are an excellent way to pass free time. In actuality all of these games have pros and cons. But depending on what your goal is, some of them might be less appealing than others. The position of this article is that for the novice gambler who simply wants to have some fun, bingo is the best choice.

The main reason why we chose bingo over other gambling games is because the potential loss from playing bingo is usually smaller than that associated with other gambling games. When playing bingo you pay a fee for each one of your cards, mark your numbers and then wait to see if the numbers marked on your cards are winning numbers. If they’re not winning numbers, you only lose the money paid for your cards; if you win, well, who can complain? Other gambling games involve greater risks – for example poker, blackjack and many other casino games do not involve flat rates, but rather amounts that players are willing to bet. If you’re a beginner who does not yet grasp the magnitude of potential losses, you might end up losing more that you can afford. Betting on horse racing or football brings good results to players who have good, up-to-date knowledge about these games. For example, betting on a specific horse should involve careful analysis of the results the horse has had over the past few races – otherwise it really doesn’t make sense to throw money away blindly. Similarly, when betting on a football team you should take into account many factors, like whether a top player is injured and cannot play, or how the team you wish to put your money on performed historically against the opposite side.

Another reason why bingo qualifies over other gambling games is the social factor: many if not most bingo rooms are social spots where people basically hang out, talk and joke amongst themselves. On the other hand, have you ever seen a poker table where one of the players puts his or her cards down and cracks a joke? Most probably not, and chances are you won’t experience it any time soon because poker involves a lot of stress, similarly to horse racing and football. These gamblers often wait with their breath held to see whether they will win or lose and the consequences have been more or less pleasant, depending on the stakes involved. The stakes in bingo are usually much smaller than in other gambling games and therefore players are not as affected when they lose a game.

In the end, it’s up to each and every individual who wants to gamble to choose a game; this article simply attempts to be a starting point for those who have not yet made their choice.

An Historical Overview of Gambling Games

Since the dawn of civilization people have enjoyed gambling on games of chance and skill. There are archeological and anthropological evidence from ancient China dating back to 2300 B.C. and ivory dice that were found in excavations in Greece from 1500 B.C. Through carvings, writings and archeological artifacts it can be established that most ancient cultures provided some form of gambling for their people.

From Egypt through India and ancient Europe, all the way to ancient American civilizations on one side of the world and Asian cultures on the other side of the world; people have always enjoyed the entertainment and fun that gambling has provided.

Most modern gambling games can have their roots traced back to ancient times. For example card games such as Poker and Blackjack can be traced back to the practice of shuffling money notes from 900 B.C. China that has slowly evolved into card playing. These games were later on brought to Europe by the Mamlukes who were Muslim so they were not allowed to have their cards carry human images. Instead they were decorated with intricate designs.

When playing cards finally made their way to Southern Europe and became popular in monarchies such as Spain and Italy, cards were given a more human feel and represented royal hierarchy in the characters it was adorned with and when playing cards reached France the notation of Prince (Jack), Queen and King became a standard in playing cards and formed the basis for the generic 52-card deck we are familiar with today.

Europe has a rich history of settling foreign and domestic disputes using gambling. When kings and Emperors could not agree they often turned to gambling to help them reaching a resolution. Like the famous story about the kings of Sweden and Norway who could not agree on who should claim the area of Hising. When they met they were unable to reach a diplomatic solution and turned to dice to help settle the dispute. The Swedish king has lost but the parties parted on good terms.

There are even stories of gambling being banned as it was so popular and some monarchs saw it as a distraction. For example King Henry VIII who prohibited his troops from taking part in gambling games so they are not distracted from their military duties.

Over the years more games have been created such as the Roulette game, which roots are somewhat ambiguous and some credit it to the French and others to the Chinese and that it traveled to Europe with Dominican monks. However the game’s popularity did not peak until Prince Charles of Monaco has introduced the game into gambling halls of his little kingdom as a means of generating revenue for Monaco.

In America gambling has been popular since it became an independent country and used gambling as a means for generating income for the state. Many people mistakenly think that mobsters like Bugsy Siegel who built the first casino in Las Vegas and other mobsters that came before him and acted as bookies are responsible for the burst of gambling in the US, when in fact it was the state itself that used gambling in the 18th century.

Later on gambling was made illegal in most US states and it wasn’t until the early 20th century that states like Nevada made gambling legal again as a means of generating revenue for the state.

Gambling is one of the common threads that connect humans from all over the world and from different eras and civilizations and shows us that people are more similar than different no matter what their cultural background is. All humans require recreational activities and the excitement that gambling has and can provide.
