Three to go

If you need three more matching numbers on your online bingo card, you may tell other players you have 3TG. It is one of several acronyms and abbreviations used by bingo players, and similar to 1TG and 2TG.

Where did 3TG come from?

Bingo is a game that became popular in the mid-20th century and persists in popularity, especially among older adults. The game is typically played in person, partially because it's mentally undemanding and provides an opportunity to socialize with others.

The game moved online in the 2000s and became popular as a mobile game. Players still wanted the social aspect to stay intact when playing online so most bingo games provide a messaging option to communicate with other players. Bingo players then created acronyms and abbreviations for common phrases to make it easier to socialize during the game, like 3TG for "three to go."

Who uses 3TG?

Online bingo players of all ages may use 3TG. While in-person bingo players are typically older, online bingo opened up the game to younger players, especially those who gamble and play on social sites.
