The Presentation View for your Bingo Game is a centralized display that your entire crowd sees at your event. This view shows all the details of your Bingo Game like the most recent called square, the last five called squares, Game Notes, and Live Rankings, and also displays the instructions and URL on how your crowd can access your Bingo Game on their mobile devices.
Your crowd uses the Presentation View to "follow along" while using their mobile device to play.

Set the Presentation View to Full-Screen Mode
After opening the Presentation View in a new browser tab, you can detach the browser tab and move it to an "Extended Desktop" area on your computer that is connected to a projector, HDTV, or other display sources. These are often connected to your computer's external display ports via HDMI, DVI, VGA, etc.
Once the external device is showing the Presentation View's browser tab, click the Full-Screen button in the lower right-hand corner of the Presentation View. This will put the Presentation View into full-screen presentation mode.
