    What’s Behind These Bingo Calls?

    Each of these alternative bingo calls has a unique and varied history. Many are used because they rhyme and just plain sound fun!

    Some of the entries in this list, such as “me and you” for 2 and “you and me” for three, are straightforward romantic rhymes. Others are even more self-explanatory – so “half a dozen” and “one dozen” may be used to refer to six and 12 respectively.

    Then, there are the various cultural references, both familiar and obscure. “Dancing Queen” for 17, for example, will probably bring to most people’s minds the mention of the number in the lyrics of the well-known ABBA song, while “Heinz Varieties” for 57 relates to the “57 Varieties” slogan historically used by the baked bean company in its advertising.

    Finally, some risqué or downright rude bingo calls have also made their way into the game’s lexicon, including “getting plenty” for 20 and “dirty whore” for 34. We’ll leave you to make your own judgements or create your own alternative bingo calls.
