Amazingly enough Lips - I was looking at bingo trivia yesterday and I recall it was 60,000 combinations or it could be 6000 - one of the two I'm sure.

I know it was called "beano" before but I don't know how it became "bingo".

 

Johnny beat me up to this one. Let me just say that the beano name was introduced because they used beans to cover the called numbers. The story goes that once, someone got really excited and instead of shouting Beano! said Beango, people liked it, and the rest is history...
