Though, bingo doesn’t belong to America by origin, it originated in Italy, bingo acquired its present form only after it entered America in late 1920s. It was Edwin Lowe, an American toy salesman, who changed the early name of beano to bingo, after he overheard someone unexpectedly yelling bingo instead of beano. He with another gentleman Carl Leffler, a Columbia university math professor, made great efforts to modernize and popularize bingo. By 1930, Leffler created as many as 6000 unique bingo cards. Rumors has it he went insane after completing the job!
