OnlineBingo.co.uk is giving bingo fans a chance to take part in the UK’s first ever official National Bingo Day with a week of exclusive content designed to bring bingo back into the conversation after a tough year for bingo halls and the industry at large.

During this week, the UK’s biggest bingo comparison site has already released an overview of National Bingo Day, with a list of reasons to love playing bingo at home or with your friends.

OnlineBingo.co.uk has also collaborated with some of the UK’s most well-known bingo halls, including Buzz Bingo and MrQ.com, to give readers an insight into how the industry has handled the countrywide lockdowns over the last 18 months. It was also an opportunity for these bingo-heads to share their favourite bingo memories and talk about how they will be celebrating the big day

National Bingo Day is being championed by the industry as a way to revitalise the game, and it’s clear from the interviews that bingo is clearly near and dear to staff and players alike.

Though National Bingo Day is about celebrating bingo as we know it today, OnlineBingo.co.uk’s bingo boffins have also produced a prophetic look into the future of bingo and what the future may hold for players, as technology improves and attitudes towards the game evolve and change. VR bingo party anyone?

National Bingo Day is being recognised in the UK for the first time this Sunday, June 27th. Whilst this will be Brits’ first chance to shout about our national love of bingo, fans in the US have been celebrating this national holiday for years.

This event comes at the end of a tough time for the industry, as bingo halls have been closed for most of the global pandemic. For many, bingo is more than just a game – it is a chance to socialise, catch up with friends and maybe bond over a house win.

Max Wright, editor of OnlineBingo.co.uk said: “We are proud to commemorate and support the first National Bingo Day this year. The past 18 months have been turbulent for the industry, especially for bingo halls which have been closed for most of the pandemic. This new, annual day of appreciation has presented us with a fantastic opportunity to work alongside bingo-industry members who operate land-based bingo halls for the first time, to celebrate the game of bingo however the fans choose to play.”
