How Has Bingo Evolved for the 20-Something Audience?
The game of bingo is a classic household game of chance that has been popular for decades. Bingo and variations of bingo can be played in places ranging from event halls to classrooms. Traditional bingo halls are typically associated with older generations and bingo is a common event held in retirement homes. Despite this, recently, there has been a rise of interest in bingo amongst those in their 20s, which could be for a variety of reasons.
One reason for the rise in popularity of bingo could be down to the growth of online bingo. The access to online bingo has made the game more easily available to players, as they can access the game through smartphones, laptops and tablets. The influence of online bingo across other forms of casino games is also evident, with games like bingo jackpots becoming popular, as seen at https://bingo.paddypower.com/c/bingo-jackpots. The crossover with other casino-based games has helped to grow bingo’s audience and introduced millennial players to the game. Research by YouGov has actually shown that the age group most likely to be playing online bingo is 24-35-year-olds. The research has also shown that people who have played online bingo are also visiting bingo halls, so the online accessibility is actually leading to a growth in players of the live game of bingo, as per https://yougov.co.uk/topics/lifestyle/articles-reports/2018/09/24/full-house-who-driving-online-bingos-growth.
It’s not just the impact of online casino that has driven a bigger crowd towards bingo – another reason is due to the colossal growth in popularity of events such as Bongo’s Bingo. This live event has gained international traction and has been held in almost 50 locations across the world. Bongo’s Bingo is a blend between bingo, a dance-off and other activities involving audience participation. Bongo’s Bingo is known for its crazy and immersive experience which has been a hit amongst university goers and rave fanatics alike. The blend of traditional bingo with a night out environment has made for a popular event – however, it has been especially popular with the 20s to 30s crowd. Tickets for this event tend to sell out very fast proving how much demand there is for it. More information regarding Bongo’s Bingo is available at https://www.bongosbingo.co.uk/.

Events such as Bongo’s Bingo and the emergence of online bingo have been good for the game in general. Bingo had been declining in popularity throughout the 1990s, with the national lottery and the internet providing alternative options for players. Since then, traditional bingo halls have been shutting down, however with the growth of online bingo and its accessibility for players, bingo has regained popularity and also attracted a new audience. In addition to this, innovative events like Bongo’s Bingo have kept the live game of bingo growing and introduced even more people to the wonderful game of bingo.
