Bingo was founded in Italy around 1530, but it wasn't always known as bingo or what bingo is today, it was a variation of a lottery called "Il Gioco del Lotto d'Italia".

In the 18th Century, the French came on board retitling it to "Le Lotto" and adding cards and tokens along with the calling of numbers.

It wasn't until 1933 when the word "Bingo" was copyrighted in the official rulebook.
