Bingo and Poker are, without any doubt, the preferred games of chance in the States. Among the casino games, Poker is the one chosen by men, and bingo is the selected among women. Regardless the difference between these two games, now you can play a hybrid made with some aspects of each game.
“Dab It Poker”, a game created by Denny Tribout Jr. from Belleville, Illinois, has the best of Bingo and Poker, so it would be reasonable to think it would please everyone. From the Bingo game it took the dabbing element, from Poker, the hands rank.
How do you play “Dab It Poker”?
To play the game you must buy a ticket with five numbers on it. The player has to mark each number that is drawn and is on his/her ticket. Just like in Bingo. The difference is that when the player marks a number on the ticket, he receives a Poker card.
The first player to call “Bingo” (when the five numbers on the ticket are marked) won, just like in regular Bingo, but depending on the results of the cards the players get, they can claim different prizes according to the rank they obtained by completing the ticket.
The game was played for the first time a month ago, but it has been through its perfecting process for a year or so. Tribout has already patented the game and plans to introduce it at the next “Bingo World Trade Show” that would take place in Las Vegas.
