Why is bingo legal gambling?

Why is it allowed while other games are not?

That's an excellent question. Thanks for asking. It really depends on where you're residing. Some countries allow bingo simply because it's a game that's based on pure luck and you don't need special skills to win big, unlike other games.

Moreover, games like bingo and lotteries are typically regulated by the local government, just like in the UK, http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2005/19/contents/enacted

Also, bingo is associated with raising funds for charity, and they are usually held by non-profit organisations, and there's a strong social aspect to bingo.

Playing with friends or joining a community of bingo players is more highlighted than the intention of winning a huge prize. Hope this helps.
