Bingo as we know is a game of chance which originated during the 1500s and became hugely popular among all the Italians, who are ardent fans of it even today. From Milan it spread across various places and eventually made their way to the streets of London.
Have you ever wondered, why do we shout ‘Bingo’ whenever we win? Then, let me tell you, there’s a very interesting story behind the origination of this epic word. It started from a carnival in Georgia, where a U.S toy salesman, Edwin S. Lowe came across a game, where a lucky participant fortuitously exclaimed ‘Bingo’ instead of ‘Beano’. Since then, Lowe started promoting this game of cards as Bingo all across the world.
The name bingo was so wonderfully branded, that people started relating to it in a massive way. This game became the most important medium of socializing and relaxing for most players world wide.
A couple of weeks ago Travel Lodge invited me and my husband to spend a night in Liverpool, due to work commitments we could only stay the one night, but it was still nice to spend some time together away in a different city for the night which we really appreciated.
Liverpool is a 60 minute journey away from our home town near Manchester so it was quite easy to hop on the train round the corner and see what there was to see in Liverpool.
