Where have all land bingoers gone at Mecca Bingo (17/04/2011)

Where have all land bingoers gone at Mecca Bingo

HEART BINGO

I recently took a trip down to my local Mecca bingo and as usual i could count the players in about 30 seconds. I understand that in the recent financial state the country is in, many leisure activities have been cut to bare minimum. (Including my own) I just think it is such a shame as land bingo can be great fun. We can meet new people, have a drink, even a meal and have a good evening or afternoon playing bingo.

Most things are cheaper and more convinient online these days and i myself take advantage of offers and bargains online. I love online bingo, i love the chat and the games, its great, especially here at OMB but it is such a shame that the bingo halls like Mecca Bingo are struggling. As i sat ringing my numbers i started to think about how many people in that moment in time were playing online bingo, and then i looked at the empty tables that surrounded me.

For people that enjoy both land bingo and online bingo paysites, endeavour to do both where possible. If you have a free night and a bit of free cash, go out to a bingo hall with some mates and have a laugh. Cos i fear very shortly we won't have the option anymore.

Good luck wherever you play your bingo everyone xxxxxx

Your right is is such a shame i remember my mum used to take me to land bingo when i was young. I think land bingo will end up shutting like many others around here just lately. My local bingo hall has now gone live online, i think this may be a bad move for them also, we will have to wait and see. Im glad i found omb lol

yes i agree it is far more easier for ppl to play online bingo and it is a shame bingo halls are closing down because of this however i would say the smoking ban is one thing that killed this as a smoker myself i did stop going as often to land bingo as it was hard to nip out for a cig and go to the bar between games lol but yeah it is a fab night out with good friends

i have to say that my local mecca bingo is doing quite well and they did have record profits this year however how much of that is down to on line bingo remains to be seen
