Bingo at Home was a bingo game show with people playing at home and in the studio.


Unlike the 1950s version of Bingo at Home, this version had a different gameplay. There are only 5 contestants that make the word bingo. To mark the squares, they would have to answer questions correctly in order to put a number (1-9) on a spot in their column representing their letter on the bingo board; if not, he/she was eliminated from the next question and the other contestants would have a chance. The scoring was in points. The player who gets bingo wins the game and won money in dollars & cents based on their winning line. The winning digits could be a prize for someone at home. If the contestant is playing at home, he/she has to dial the digits on the screen on the telephone to win a prize.

Bonus RoundEdit

Later shows had the winner play a bonus round in which they answered questions to move a decimal point from left to right and turn the 5 digit number they won with into cash. After 3 correct responses to questions, they could stop with hundreds of dollars (three decimal places), or risk the amount on a 4th question that could win thousands of dollars (four decimal places). If they continued and missed the question, they lost it all.
