For years I’ve thought bingo was just for old people, something your Nan would spend her days doing. I never once thought it would be something I’d enjoy doing, or would actually have regular nights out with my friends to do so. When my friend first convinced me to go play bingo with her I was a little hesitant at first, and didn’t really think I’d have a good time, but I soon started to get into it and found myself actually having fun.
When I first played bingo I was worried that it would be a little too fast and I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the numbers being called out, but I found with the help of my friend I got into it pretty quickly. My friend and I started to get a little competitive with it as well, trying to be the first to finish a line and get a full house.
Of course my favourite thing about bingo is that you can win money. Sadly the most I’ve ever won is a fiver, but I’ve seen people win £100’s, and I even saw a lady win £10,000 in the grand national game which just seems like crazy money!
Since I’ve become a bingo convert I have many great nights out with my friends, and I’m even having one this week to catch up with my old work friends. Our local bingo hall serves food as well, so we often get there early to have a bite to eat before our game. It’s a great way to catch up with friends, have a laugh and a night out for fairly cheap.
I’ve become such a fan of bingo that sometimes I prefer to play it online instead of going to my local bingo hall. There’s several online bingo sites where you can play more than just bingo, you can also opt to no deposit slots games which can be a great laugh too.
