Here we are again and the Bingo Detective cracked another case! This time he went ahead and investigated on a question left by one of our players on our previous blog post. Another month has arrived and more Bingo clues need to be deciphered. How much do you know about Bingo Consoles?

Bingo consoles are the box, machine or big metallic circumference where the winning numbers or little balls come from. As you know, they can be manual or nowadays, electronic.

Since its beginnings in Italy in the 1530’s, Bingo, its rules and equipment have definitely come a long way. You might be surprised at the array of consoles that are out there and how modern they can actually get.

Bingo consoles are a serious business to people who play weekly or who run a bingo group in their neighborhood. In my search for the perfect console, I discovered that there are many different brands that work for different needs. If you take bingo as seriously as I do, then join me in this fun investigation.

The Ambassador Console: This console is perfect for people who play in small groups of two to fifty people, one or less session per week.

The Senator Console: The Senator is your match if you play in groups of two to one hundred people, three to five sessions per week.

The Presidential Console: This one might be yours if you play in groups of fifty to three hundred people, three to five sessions per week. This one is very similar to the Senator Console.
