Bingo, especially when played in a professional environment, wouldn't be complete without a flashboard. A flashboard is used in Bingo to make the numbers and letters easier to see and play.
The flashboard is an electronic device that shows the called numbers and letters on a board that lights up. People playing the game of Bingo can easily see what number has been called after it is called. There are even flashboards that come equipped with a ball catcher, so the caller doesn't have to do anything more than take the ball out of the catcher, call out the number and proceed. The flashboard will light up with the number and the caller moves on.
Flashboards range in price from basic models to expensive boards priced around $8,000.
