Where did Bingo Begin?

It All Began in Italy

Italy is known for its high end fashion and its many talented designers, but did you also know it was where the game of Bingo originated?

In 1530, an Italian lottery existed that was referred to as "Lo Giuoco del Lotto D'Italia" or the Italian National Lottery. This lottery was held weekly in Italy and brought out many players. Bingo is a direct descendent of this lottery.

The Italian State Lottery today is still played in Italy and contributes 75 million to the Italian government.
