Bingo was an ancient Earth game. The term was also used as an interjection by Humans in reference to a success.
In 2364, Data, unaware of the usage as an interjection, failed to see the relevance to the game bingo when Doctor Beverly Crusher said "Bingo, Data." The doctor had just made an inoculant by which she could counteract a virus spreading on the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Angel One")
In 2366, Geordi La Forge cried "Bingo" when a pulsar was discovered which enabled the location of John Doe's homeworld, Zalkon, to be backtracked. (TNG: "Transfigurations")
In 2375, Harry Kim exclaimed "Bingo" when the USS Voyager achieved partial sensors following a power loss caused by the Night Aliens' dampening field. (VOY: "Night")
In 2376, Kathryn Janeway said "Bingo" after B'Elanna Torres determined that a dark matter asteroid was affecting a graviton ellipse. (VOY: "One Small Step")
