Leap Year an Extra Bonus Day for Bingo Players

21 February 2016

It happens but once every 7 years and February 29th, 2016 is around the corner. Lear year came to be over 2000 years ago when Julius Caesar introduced it. After such a long wait there are certain traditions that take place on this noted day:

Ladies Purpose to Gents - According to an old Irish legend, St Brigid made a deal with St Patrick to allow women to do the proposing. It is the one time that ladies can get down on bended knee and ask the love of their life for their hand in marriage.

Bachelor’s Day – If a gentleman refused a marriage proposal from a lady they are expected to pay a penalty of money if he refused. In some European countries particularly the upper crust of society refusing marriage on Leap Day means he would have to purchase 12 pairs of gloves. These were to be worn by the lady who was turned down and to hide the finger that has no engagement ring on it.

Bad Luck – Legend has it in Scotland if you were born on February 29th, it is a sign bad luck. The Greeks also believe it is not only a curse day but year too and couples who marry during this time will be doomed.

And what does it mean for the Bingo community? It is another day to add on the calendar for more Bingo entertainment, bonuses, promotions and exclusives. Enjoy the extra day this year and may the Leap year fairy bring you lots of luck.
