Could no one live long enough to print all possible BINGO cards? How is this possible?

In the game of BINGO there are seventy-five numbers divided into five groups of fifteen numbers each; B-1 to 15, I-16 to 30, N-31 to 45, G-46 to 60 and O-61 to 75. The BINGO game card has five columns corresponding to the letters BINGO. The bingo game player’s card has twenty-four numbers; five preprinted numbers in four of the columns below the BIGO and four numbers below the N. Calculating the total number of possible combinations gives the result that there are 552,446,474,061,129,000,000,000,000. (That’s 552 million trillion or 0.5 quadrillion) possible BINGO game cards. There would be 111,007,923,832,371,000 sets of bingo cards with 4,976,640,000 cards (nearly 55 billion) in each game. Each card in each set would have the same twenty four numbers, but in a different arrangement on each card. If we assume that there are six billion people in the world today, that means there are 92,074,412,343,521,400 bingo tickets for each and every person in the world. If you could print one million bingo game cards per second, it would take 17,505,972,382,599.7 years to print all possible BINGO game cards. If you placed four BINGO game cards on a standard 8-1/2 X 11 sheet of paper, and if you spread all of the BINGO game cards over the surface of the earth, they would cover the earth to a depth of more than 800 feet. miles If there were a million bingo game cards per inch of height, and all possible cards were put into a stack, the stack would stretch 1485 light years. (A light year is 6 billion miles). Alpha Centuri, our closest star beyond the Sun, is only 4 light-years away.

Here is more evidence.

You can have 120 different arrangements of the five numbers under each of the four columns under B, I, G, and O. You can have 24 different arrangements of the four numbers under N. So 120 times, 120 times, times 24 times 120 times 120 equals 4,976,640,000. That is the number of bingo game cards that could exist, all with the same twenty-four numbers, but in a different arrangement on each card.

So, doing the math, there are 111,007,923,832,371,000 possible unique BINGO combinations where no two cards have the same twenty-four numbers. (That’s 111 million million.)
