In the UK, Bingo is called Housie and is typically played in a Bingo club rather than a Bingo hall.
The game is similar to the United States version; it has a caller and large groups of people playing. The caller at the UK Bingo club will typically start the game by announcing the prizes and then say, "Eyes down", to let the players know he is starting to draw.
UK Bingo cards have 90 numbers on them, which is more than the United States version. UK Bingo halls often sells books of tickets (Bingo cards) and typically people playing in the UK clubs play between one and six books during the night. Play is separated into sessions throughout the evening with different books for each session.
