New Balls Please!

Since we all like a flutter here at The Tennis Tipster, it’s time to have some fun with Bingo!

How does Bingo work?

For instance, 75-ball Bingo is the typical game of Bingo played across the United States in Bingo halls everywhere, and online at sites like Most often it is played on a card that is five by five. Your goal is achieve the pattern designated and mark off that pattern as you go, or the computer does it for you. Once you have the designated pattern you have Bingo. There will be 75 balls that could potentially be called out, thus the term “75-Ball Bingo”.


By now, you may be familiar with the sports betting community so hopefully this blog is helping you make informed decisions about your bets! Boris Becker has been involved with YouWin for a while and comments:

Betting has always been an integral part of sporting culture and can create as much excitement for sports fans as the results do. So whether it’s backing Bayern or looking forward to the French Open and Wimbledon, our aim is to ensure we continually engage fans.

Back to the topic of Bingo, you can get some practice in by playing some John McEnroe bingo before laying down some cash. It’s easy, just check off every time Mac Daddy references these topics, using this handy Bingo card courtesy of Yahoo’s ‘Busted Racquet blog‘. Of course, they could also mention Big Mac’s flirting with Sue Barker or underplay how bratty he was when he played. You could also add a “says player should come to the net more often” square.

This is the kind of game that would work with a few others, perhaps Mary Carillo or Brad Gilbert including one of my favorite Bradisms, “Taking him to the woodshed for a beating”. My new favorite commentator is Robbie Koenig with his South African lilt and coining the term “Roddickulous!”.
