Guide to Bingo Number Names

Now, let's be honest, the first time anyone ever heard a bingo caller shouting out the bingo number names would have sounded very odd indeed. With ninety numbers getting called out and each having a quirky little nickname. It really does mean that you have an advantage marking your numbers quicker if you know all the names off by heart. The bottom line is that many callers will say the name first, so you could be calling house before the number itself is called.

The history of bingo number names goes back a very long way, with some of the names relating to terms used during the second world war. Most of the nicknames simply rhyme with the number, but there are a good few of them that are a little more abstract. There have been some attempts to update these numbers to give a fresh feel to the game, but this has not proved popular for obvious reasons. It's hard enough to memorize them in the first place, without some fool changing the names willy nilly.

I know what you are thinking, where do I start? Well, we have a list right here for you to take a look at in a nice convenient way. So the next time you hear “Jump and Jive” it won't get you “In a State”.
