Edwin S. Lowe was a toy salesman who launched it at a carnival in Atlanta. He renamed the game as Online bingo sites
as he accidently heard someone shout beano as bingo. Seeing the popularity and interest of people he joined hands with mathematician Carl Leffler to produce around 6000 bingo cards. This was also done because there were cases arising where there were more than one winner per game and this led to confusion. With so many card combinations it became virtually impossible for more than one person to win and reduced the odds of repetition. He then started a company and produced Bingo cards.
