When the game reached North America in 1929, it became known as "beano". It was first played at a carnival near Atlanta, Georgia. New York toy salesman Edwin S. Lowe renamed it " bingo " after he overheard someone accidentally yell " bingo " instead of "beano." By 1930, Leffler had invented 6,000 different bingo cards.
