If you go back twenty years, most people would say that bingo is a game reserved only for elderly women. However, in recent years the game has seen a rise in popularity and is now enjoyed by people of all ages, races and genders.
Before the 21st century bingo had a real bad image problem. The only people who seemed to enjoy the game were old people. There was not many bingo halls, they were mostly old cinemas that were converted into make shift bingo halls and were filled with smoke and old people. Not an appealing environment if I say so myself.
However, bingo is naturally a very social and enjoyable game to play. In the 21st century more and more people became interested in bingo. With the introduction of online bingo you will now find people of all ages playing online bingo, even men.
Young people have started to enjoy playing online bingo. The online variation is seen to be much trendier, fast paced and exciting. They are attracted by the flashing graphics, high speed action and the big money prizes on offer. The thought of risking only a few pennies and winning a massive jackpot prize is appealing to everyone.
Men are also starting to get into online bingo. They cannot miss out on a quick flutter and love the idea of hitting a big jackpot too. Also, online bingo is a great way for men to meet women, since women are the primary demographic. Each of the bingo rooms has chat rooms and it’s a great way for men to talk to women online.
That being said, you would think the primary demographic for online bingo players is old women. If you thought that, you would be wrong. In actuality women of ages 20-50 years old are the most prolific players of online bingo. I think the main reason for this might be because senior citizens tend to be less tech savvy and might just prefer to play bingo in a bingo hall. Whereas young women are very tech savvy and are very busy people. They may not have time to play bingo at a bingo hall and would just prefer to unwind playing a few games of bingo online with a glass of wine in hand.
In conclusion, bingo is a game that is loved and adored by almost everybody. It’s not age, race or gender discriminate. It is a very entertaining game and a fantastic way to spend time socialising. No wonder millions of people around the world love the game.
