An electronic bingo game is disclosed in which a memory is provided for storing all of the numbers called in a last set until the current set is completed and the next set begun. A claim to a late bingo game can then be easily verified by recalling the numbers from the last set. A preselectable time interval is provided to determine the rate at which the bingo numbers are called. A true random number selection process is provided to select the bingo numbers called. A randomly selected seed number is provided at the start of each set, and the seed number used in each random selection for that set. Additional memory is included for storing the game patterns that will be used in each set, and each pattern will automatically be called up and displayed to the players as each new set is begun.
