Bingo is more often thought of as an old-fashioned game, played in retirement homes by the nation’s nans and grandads, or occasionally perhaps a fun party game.
I don’t think many people would call bingo a hip or trendy game, however a modern twist on the unfashionable game has led to the revival of the bingo scene in Britain.
There has been a new tendency across the UK to combine one group activity that might seem a little boring and spicing it up with a guaranteed winner: alcohol.
There are still prizes to be won, although winning is certainly not the point.
People from all walks of life can just relax and have some innocent fun, with drunken antics sure to ensue.
This injection of youth and freshness into bingo has reinvigorated it across the nation physically, but also online.
Online betting companies have used bingo for a while but up until recently it hasn’t been a big hit.
Now however, more and more websites are being created with only bingo as the sight, both for free and for real money.
The correlation is obvious, as bingo returns to the public spirit once again, it becomes a more desirable activity online at the same time, and the bingo market is growing constantly.
This trend is becoming more and more pronounced, with crazy golf, bowling and other activities combining with alcohol to create a more chaotic and fun atmosphere.
With big events specifically for bingo, the demand and supply is going up, and the simple twist of adding alcohol has transformed bingo from an old-fashioned game and reinvigorated it into a new and exciting group activity!
