Heading out the door to play Bingo is very popular in the UK. One of the reasons maybe the clubs are diverse and not limited to seniors. Younger crowds are lining up to grab their electronic bingo or paper cards to find enjoyment for a couple hours away from home.

There is a much larger following of bingo lovers in the UK than in the United States and quite easy to understand why. Whoever said location isn’t everything was way off because in the world of Bingo it can make all the difference in the world.

While UK halls offer brightly colored carpet, furniture and comfortable seating, the US on the other hand are typically dark, dingy church basements, metal folding chairs and rows of long folding tables. It is enough to make any bingo fan turn around on their heels and go home.

The UK will look forward to a brand spanking new venue opening very soon in Southampton with a 1,000 seat capacity. It will have the night club attraction offering nice comfortable seating, music to bebop to and an atmosphere that screams fun times!

It is estimated that nearly 45 million residents in the UK play bingo on a yearly basis. With that kind of traffic experts are predicting that by 2019 the amount spent on bingo will rise to a staggering £30m a year.

So what is the secret that keeps bingo alive in the UK? The answer is most likely a simple one; don’t remain stagnant. Draw in new generations of players by having unique themes, parties and club that is robust in color, light and merriment.

According to CEO Simon Wykes of Gala Bingo “There is no chance of this industry dying. We are very much alive, kicking and ready to grow."
