Earning Points in Bingo Bango Bongo
If you can get your head over the point system, then you will be able to play this game straight away. If you enjoy placing a bet on a game, this is a game that you can do that with and it suits golfers of all abilities. The Bingo Bango Bongo point system is as followed:
- Bingo Point – Awarded to the first player in the group to get the ball on the green
- Bango Point – Awarded to the player with their ball closest to the pin when all balls are on the green
- Bongo Point – Awarded to the player to get their ball in the hole first.

Who Does this Game Suit?
Bingo Bango Bongo is suitable for golfers of all skill levels. This is because it offers all kinds of players (best and weaker ones) an equal opportunity to earn points. For instance, the bingo points depend on being first on the green.
Likewise, the bongo points depend on being first in the hole. Therefore, if a player is farthest from the green, he/she plays first and gets the first chance at claiming the bingo points. Likewise, once all balls are on the green, if a player is farthest away from the hole, he/she putts first, again getting the first chance at claiming the bongo points.
The best chance for amateur players in the game, however, is with the bango points (which are awarded to the first player to get their golf ball nearest to the pin). These points are awarded only after all balls are on the green.
As the seasoned players may be on the green, the weaker player might be sitting just off the green and chipping. This can be a great opportunity for that player to grab the bango points.
