Bingos' history can be traced back to 1530 and an Italian lottery called "Lo Giuoco del Lotto D'Italia," It was introduced to France in the late 1770s, where it was called "Le Lotto".

When the game reached North America in 1929, it was known as "beano" and renamed "bingo" by Edwin S. Lowe when someone accidentally yelled "bingo" instead of "beano".
