A blackout in Bingo occurs when all 25 spaces on your Bingo card are covered, or "blacked out". This variation of the game Bingo is a bit more challenging, usually needing between 50 and 60 of the 75 Bingo numbers to be called that will result in the entire Bingo card being covered.
Don't forget; if you are playing blackout and you cover all of your spaces, what must you yell? BINGO, of course!
