Bingo lingo itself goes back many years to the popularisation of bingo in the British Isles in the 1960’s and holiday camp Butlins, in conjunction with a Professor of Popular Culture, devised new calls in 2003 to freshen up the game. Every bingo player has their favourite numbers and their favourite bingo lingo calls. Here are some bingo calls from Butlers Bingo games site. Ours are as follows:
