Bingo as a National Favorite

Bingo is one of the most popular games in the UK. There are many different factors behind the popularity of the game of bingo in the UK. The wide spread playing of bingo began several hundred years ago and started as a game called beano. The name bingo didn’t come along until someone mistakenly yelled bingo instead of beano upon winning. After that people began to use the word bingo as it was catchier. Since then bingo has gained so much popularity in the UK that it is now one of the most popular games to play. In fact, the game has become so popular in the UK that a national bingo game was started in 1986 for people across the country to play in. Even further helping the advancement of bingo is the internet.

Playing internet bingo is a favorite of many people in their twenties. The average online bingo player is a female between the ages of twenty and twenty five. There are also very many young men who play and even middle aged people under the age of fifty. Playing bingo online is done two different ways. Playing for money is the most popular way to play online bingo. However it is possible to get a free trial membership to most of the larger bingo web sites and play many games of bingo without having to deposit towards the web site. Many people prefer free bingo over stakes bingo simply because they wish to have fun but not squander their money. How you choose to play bingo is a personal preference as the game is meant to be enjoyed.
