Hello

i have just a little question.
Why are there so many Online Bingo Sites from UK (mostly UK some from Sweden).

Is it very popular in the UK or why ?

Bingo is a very traditional pass-time in the UK for (am I allowed to say this?) the older generation - particularly women.
Most arcades used to have a live bingo going on all day in the dim & distant past.

Tried it online a few times - but it doesn't really "float my boat". However I can understand why many people love it and can get addicted...

You should see them in the land based rooms.

I used to go to Mecca bingo with some friends for a laugh every so often and the noises people make when someone else wins is unreal. Zimmerframes flying everywhere :laugh:

I sometimes play bingo but only if I'm doing the slots for the £1,000,000 slots giveaway they do on VF sites. Can get some good cash prizes from them.

I once was asked to leave my bar staff position and call bingo for roughly 150 customers.
Those eyes i was getting for continuously not adding the number "nicknames" still haunt me 15yrs on.

Another thing to note here is in relation to Regulations & perhaps more specifically, advertising...

Currently bingo is considered a recreational activity (not gambling), so the controls on advertising are a lot more relaxed. (E.g. You can only advertise gambling (casino's) on TV after 9pm. This doesn't apply to bingo). As such, you see many adverts for bingo, but this is frequently more about brand awareness & securing registrations. Sites can then specifically target (via emails etc) additional promotions on their other sites and products. (The reality is, they're going to make a lot more from players on .40 spins on slots than they are on .01 bingo cards).

I like to put on a bit of slap, dig out that little dress and hit the town with the girls for a spot of Bingo. "Two Fat Ladies!"

Perfectly normal pastime. Actually, tell a lie, the part about going out was fabricated. Nothing beats a spot of online Bingo wagering with an empty lobby, no players and placing £10's worth of bets to win the available £6, for example. The rush is unreal, as my numbers come in like clockwork. BINGO!!
