Bingo: The hobby of the stars.

Bingo is a game loved by many, even if they don’t want to admit it. It’s won its place in shelves at homes from all over the word. We all had a Bingo game one way or another, either by improvising with a “print and play” version, or that plastic version your aunty gifted you for your 10th birthday.

Luckily enough, the game goes way beyond that. There are thousands of bingo halls around the word and all welcoming adult players from all age ranges, putting them all together as pears into a massive congregation that feels unique. Even now, that the summer is almost over, and a trip to the beach will not be considered anymore, BINGO will give you something to do during upcoming rainy days.

Fortunately, now it’s more accessible than ever before. There are bingo halls scattered all over the globe and if you don’t feel like leaving your house, as an example you can play online bingo at 888 ladies and enjoy the game at the comfort of your home.

Having people in their twenties sharing a match with elderly citizens is not something that happens in many means of entertainment.
