HOW TO QUICKLY START THE BINGO KARAOKE GAME

If you want to try playing BINGO Karaoke now, without analyzing in detail every function of the software, here are the main steps to follow. In any case, we suggest you to read the rest of the tutorial to discover all the other functions and the various game modes that will allow you to make the most out of this program.

Step 1. Create a playlist in the program

To create a music playlist, browse through the folders on your PC from the “Explorer” section at the top left of the program. Once you have found the folder with your midi, mp3 or cdg songs, select it and click on the button  to load all songs in a playlist. Or select one song at a time and click on the button  to add it to the playlist.

Once the playlist is created remember to click on SAVE (), and choose a name for it. Be sure to add at least 30 songs to the playlist because the bingo game works with at least 30 songs and a maximum of 90 (one for each number).

Step 2. Print the bingo cards

Choose the game mode based on the songs loaded (30, 60 or 90):

Then you can proceed to print the bingo cards to be distributed to all participants. To print these cards (with the numbers and titles of the songs) click on top TOOLS –> STAMPA CARTELLE BRANI

Then click on STAMPA (PRINT) and the software will generate the cards:

Print and distribute all cards to users.

Step 3. Start Playing to Bingo Karaoke

Now everything is ready. To start playing click on the red button NUOVO GIOCO / NEW GAME 

The scoreboard on the program will be numbered. Below that scoreboard you will notice an EXTRACT button. By clicking on this button you can start extracting the bingo numbers. A human voice will say the number drawn.

The extracted number will be colored red and you will decide whether or not to make the person with that number to sing (each number is associated with a song in the playlist). To make it sing you have to click on the PLAY button (bottom right). The lyrics of the song will appear on the karaoke screen.

NB: Both the numerical scoreboard and the Karaoke screen can be played on a DUAL MONITOR. All you have to do is double click on the TABELLONE button and then drag the two screens onto the second monitor

WHAT IS THE SCALETTA BACKGROUND

 

THE “SCALETTA BACKGROUND” ALLOWS YOU TO FILL THE MUSIC EMPTY DURING A PERFORMANCE.
