General gambling games, especially games of luck and chance, have been developed over centuries, Bingo not being an exception to the rule. Bingo originated as a Lottery game, Lottery games having spread throughout Europe during the 16th and 17th Centuries. Bingo started out as a game with its outcomes determined purely by the selection of completely random numbers.
