We all know what to do if we have "bingo" on our card - yell "BINGO!"
What's important is how loud you yell. You need to shout "Bingo" loud enough for the caller to hear you so that he/she stops the game to determine if you are indeed the winner. Otherwise, the game continues and you could lose your winnings. In some games, the caller will turn on flashing lights to verify that a "BINGO" has been heard. If the lights aren't flashing, continue to yell "Bingo" until the lights begin to flash.
