Whether you’re organizing a fundraiser at your local church, bingo hall or an event at the senior center, you can’t go wrong with playing a round or two of Bingo. Even if it’s just a family night, playing Bingo is a nice and, fun way to spend the time.
My memories of Bingo start from an early age of helping my Gran play bingo when on holiday. I have loved it from that moment. Now you or I no longer need to visit a bingo hall to play this fun game, you and the family can play this game at home with a home bingo set. Below are 3 of the best bingo sets. We have split them into 3 categories – a budget version, a mid-price version and large quality game set perfect for seniors, large groups and regular use.
Best Home Bingo Sets
Budget Version – Royal Bingo Supplies Deluxe 6-Inch Game with Colored Balls
- Great value package, excellent bang for the buck
- Comes with a plastic ball holder
- Very helpful customer service
- Instructions for several varieties of Bingo included
What we’d Improve:
- The cage could be larger, but then the price would increase
The Deluxe Bingo Set from Royal Bingo Supplies comes with everything you need to start playing Bingo right out of the box – you’ll be getting the cage itself (solid metal construction), 50 Bingo cards (cardboard, blue) 300 Bingo chips (in place of daubers), and, of course, 75 Bingo balls (blue, red, white, yellow and green, 15 of each).
Granted, the cage is a mere 6 inches tall (that’s just the cage itself, the overall height is still not over 7 inches, however), which is a bit small when it comes to bingo sets. On the flip side, this makes it quite portable, as well as easy to store, so you can bring it with you to an event and then tuck it up in the closet when you’re done. On that note, the entire set is somewhat downsized, and the numbers themselves might be difficult to read for those with some sort of sight impairment. Still, they’re large enough for seniors to read. For the price you pay, the cards are very much up to par, and should last a good long while – they’re not particularly sturdy, but they aren’t flimsy, either (think of the cardboard on a box of cereals).
Mid-Price Version – Royal Bingo Supplies Jumbo Bingo Game with 100 Bingo Cards
- Excellent value package
- Reasonably priced for what it is
- Comes with everything you need to get you started
- Quality craftsmanship
- Comes with instructions for several Bingo varieties
What we’d Improve:
- Some purchasers have mentioned the letters and numbers on the balls can wear away over time
The bigger cousin to the Deluxe set, the Royal Bingo Supplies Jumbo Bingo Game is another great choice if you’re looking for Bingo sets that will be ready to play right out of the box. The full offer includes a solid metal cage (12 inches in height, including the base, and 7 inches in diameter), four sets of Bingo cards (red, blue, green and black, 25 of each for a grand total of 100), 500 multi-color Bingo chips, as well as 75 Bingo balls (just like with the Deluxe set, this one comes with 15 of each red, white, blue, yellow and green). Speaking of colors, you’ll also be getting 500 Bingo chips, 100 in each blue, red, purple, yellow and green.
The cage itself is sturdy and secure (the balls won’t fall out of it in a hurry), and the cards are up to scratch. Again, just like with its smaller cousin, the Jumbo Bingo Set comes with cards that are neither too flimsy nor too sturdy. That said, the lettering on the balls is a bit of a downside – it’s easy to read, to be sure, but it also wears off sooner than you might like it. Other than that, there’s nothing to fault here.
Bingo Set for Seniors & Large Groups – Regal Games Jumbo Professional Red Bingo Cage
What we like:
- Large size set
- Heavy-duty construction
- Comes with a board
- Easy to use thanks to the weighted cup
- Secure clasp prevents the balls from falling out
What we’d improve:
- Doesn’t include chips, daubers or cards
The Jumbo Professional Red Bingo Cage from Regal Games is pretty much what it reads on the tin – just a metal Bingo cage of high-quality craftsmanship. It has a strong clasp to ensure the balls don’t pop out when spinning and it comes with a weighted cup that automatically selects the balls when spinning. In addition to the cage, the kit also includes 75 pastel Bingo balls (15 of each red/pinkish, blue, white, yellow and orange), as well as a Bingo Master board to hold the balls and keep track of the game like the professionals use.
Admittedly, this Bingo set is a bit on the expensive side, but it more than makes up for it with the quality of the build, particularly in regards to the clasps that secure the balls within the cage. On that note, the entire rig as a whole is very well-made, from the coated drum & base to the stained wooden handle. It would be nice, however, if it also came with throw-in Bingo cards and chips or daubers, especially at the price point. That being said, it is perfect if you want a well made large Bingo set for large groups to play. This is bingo set is also large enough for seniors to see and use easily. You can pick daubers and cards easily on-line.
So there you have it – cup of tea, number 3 of the best bingo sets we could find to satisfy a number of price points and different requirements. So whether you’re a senior wanting to play bingo, a local group or family, one of the three bingo set reviews above should work for you.
