Print multiple bingo grids per sheet

How to print 3 bingo grids per sheet having numbers 1-75 on each grid?

In the text box, enter bingo numbers from 1 to 75 on their own lines.

Choose a grid size of 15 rows and 5 columns making 75 cells in total. If there are 10 players and you want each to have 1 printed sheet with 3 grids, enter 30 as the number of sheets.

In the print options you would have to select 3 sheets per page. Unfortunately, some browsers only allow you to select 4 or 6 sheets per page. If you select 4, each sheet should have an extra grid scraped off after printing. Especially if you have the option to print on a large A3 sheet, you can select 6 pages per sheet and cut the paper in half.

The best option is to download the bingo grids from the browser’s print view as a PDF file, having the default 1 page per sheet. The PDF file can then be opened in the free Adobe Acrobat Reader , which has a print option of 3 pages per sheet.

Wedding bingo

Bingo has been one of the most popular programs it the recent weddings of my friends. Weddings are also the main reason to implement this bingo generator, as the need has been so obvious. Almost all the couples who got married have done their own wedding bingo in Excel.

It easily takes several hours to implement and print the unique wedding bingo cards. Now the job can be done with a mobile phone in a few minutes.

Especially at a wedding of more than ten people, making bingo cards by hand would take ridiculously long time compared to a party of a few people. That’s why the bingo ticket generator makes it especially easy for wedding planners.

The bingo generator is perfect for making wedding bingo, as the text field contains wedding-themed bingo texts by default (in Finnish at the moment…).

Excursion bingo

Bingo tickets may be needed for student excursions.

No need to go into details about how students use these bingo cards. Those how need to know… they know.

Bingo tickets for a company evening

In one of my employer’s parties, bingo was a way to introduce people to each other.

Various hobbies and personal characteristics were printed in the bingo cards. The task was to find a person who fits the description.

Beer bingo

You are watching a sprots match from TV with your friends. Write down all commentator’s mannerisms and betting items to the bingo slip. The toughest gamblers include odds for each box!

Spice up by sipping beer each time you tick a box.

Why is the bingo generator free?

The application for printing bingo forms was relatively quick to make and the need is huge. Even after a few usage times the time spent on development has paid back in the scale of the society.

The server technology used is extremely resource and cost efficient. The popularity should skyrocket, so that the costs of the bingo application would rise to even one euro per month.
