Bingo, also previously known in the UK as "Housey-Housey", became increasingly popular across the UK following the Betting and Gaming Act 1960 with more purpose-built bingo halls opened every year until 2005. Since 2005, bingo halls have seen a marked decline in revenues and the closure of many halls. The number of bingo clubs in Britain has dropped from nearly 600 in 2005 to under 400 as of January, 2014. These closures are blamed on high taxes, the smoking ban, and the rise in online gambling, amongst other things. Bingo played in the UK (90-ball bingo) is not to be confused with bingo played in the US (Bingo (American version), 75-ball bingo), as the tickets and the calling are slightly different. In Quebec, this game is called Kinzo. In India, it is known as Tambola. History The game itsel ...

The use of random permutations is often fundamental to fields that use randomized algorithms such as coding theory, cryptography, and simulation. A good example of a random permutation is the shuffling of a Playing card, deck of cards: this is ideally a random permutation of the 52 cards. Generating random permutations Entry-by-entry brute force method One method of generating a random permutation of a set of length ''n'' uniform distribution (discrete), uniformly at random (i.e., each of the ''n''! permutations is equally likely to appear) is to generate a sequence by taking a random number between 1 and ''n'' sequentially, ensuring that there is no repetition, and interpreting this sequence (''x''1, ..., ''x''''n'') as the permutation : \begin 1 & 2 & 3 & \cdots & n \\ x_1 & x_2 & x_3 & \cdots & x_n \\ \end, shown here in permutation#Cycle notation, two-line notation. ...
