In the beginning there was our analog gaming-show called "Bingo & Schampus" ("Bingo & Champagne"), taking place on several occasions like the Dockville Festival (https://www.msdockville.de/) or at.tension (https://www.attension-festival.de).
Hosted by our passionate "stage hog" Johannes the show always livened up some company events or just helped to raise some funds for good causes (e.g. https://sea-watch.org/).
In 2019 during the first COVID-19 lockdown, with all event- and cultural-locations beeing forced to shut their doors for an indefinite period of time, we needed to adapt the concept of playing bingo and win a bottle of sparkling wine into digital surroundings.

bingobingo.bingo was born: a platform for remotely gaining a bingo-ticket on your smartphone and to join a hosted streaming-event. Starting with our local resident club, we've soon been approached by other institutions, looking for an easy way to interact with their viewers in online-streaming events and to brand this process for any respective purpose.
And since we participated in numerous streaming-events for locations, clubs, etc. like "Ritter Butzke" (https://club.ritterbutzke.com/) or online festivals like "Festival für Festivals" (https://festivalfuerfestivals.de/) we have been wondering about further improvements and how to keep this "vibe" alive - even when COVID-19 will be over some day.
So we expanded, kicked out the need for streams to be watched (sorry, Johannes - less spotlight-moments for you...😝) and transformed into an automated service-platform, providing the user with a full "Bingo"-experience: Custom show-/roomname, custom logo, custom background, custom or random number-draw, no need to follow any online-stream.
