Bingo Fans are Getting Younger

15.08.2010

It wasn’t that long ago that bingo was associated with a blue rinse brigade, women in hair nets, copious cups of tea and the occasional sherry! Bingo certainly wasn’t seen as something a younger crowd would dabble in. But oh! How the times have changed as bingo halls online (and land based) have, over the years seen the average age of bingo fans plummeting.

It’s clear with the TV advertising and ubiquitous marketing that Bingo has now got a much younger more stylish image. A number of the bingo clubs have invested quite significant sums in a bid to give their clubs an image that appeals to a younger fresher audience. In terms of the land based halls the clubs themselves are being updated with more money being spent on the food and drink offering. Plus, more money has been spent on technology bringing in younger people.

In times of old, players would mark their tickets off with something like a marker pen. However the introduction of hand-held units at clubs replacing this more traditional method have made the game more attractive to younger players.

The company secretary of the Bingo Association, Cherry Hosking says bingo is now attracting a wider audience from a broader demographic, and is no longer perceived as a game reserved for the olds. She also says that online bingo has successfully married the social element of the game with the game playing itself, and this is a winning feature as socializing is very important to bingo players. She went on to comment; “online bingo is also a more socially acceptable game despite the gambling element, because of this.”
