Bing Bing! Bingo (ビンビン!ビンゴ?, "Sweet! Bingo")[2] is a Japanese Bingo game released on December 22, 1993 for the Super Famicom system. The player can play Bingo through a slot machine, while skydiving, and he or she can even play a game of Bingo with Santa Claus. And there's a special added bonus: There is also an option to play Bingo on a pirate ship. There is also arm wrestling and a mode where players get to gamble on the horses in case the player does not like Bingo. A party mode is present for two players.

This game was never scheduled for a North American release, because video games over there at that time were made for adolescent males. This specific demographic of players in North America had a strong preference towards action games and sports games. Releasing a Bingo game in the North America would have been considered to be committing financial suicide. There was a Bingo-like Game Boy game called Panel Action Bingo which was a puzzle/action game where a bird has to avoid a cat.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

However, the numbers are announced in Japanese rather than English, so knowledge of Japanese numbers is vital for multiplayer action. Full card Bingo is mandatory for single player games but party games can use any variation of Bingo that the players consent to.
