It used to be that bingo was associated with more mature ladies and was not generally seen as a very classy pursuit. How times have changed!
Nowadays, bingo is enjoyed by a much wider range of people: men and women, young and old, of all classes, creeds and races. It is not at all unusual these days to see a mixed group of work mates enjoying a staff night out at the bingo, a young couple having a first date in the bingo hall or a group of young friends enjoying a night out there. Who plays bingo?
There are a few reasons for bingo’s increased popularity and wider appeal. One reason is the emergence of online bingo, which has allowed many to try out the game for the first time; no matter how near or far they are from a real world bingo hall.
Online bingo is much more accessible to many people than real world bingo as it can be played wherever you live, however able bodied you are and however little time you have. After all, a quick game of online bingo can be played first thing in the morning or in the middle of the night if the mood takes you; you don’t need to get dressed up and ready for a night at the bingo hall.
A big part of the appeal of online bingo sites is that they usually offer other games too, such as slots, scratch cards, casino games and arcade games, as well as various forms of bingo itself. As a result, new players have discovered the joys of bingo by playing a variety of other games. Casino games often draw in male players who then discover they love bingo too.
