Merkur Bingo Live
Merkur Bingo began life as Beacon Bingo in 1963, when it was founded by Jimmy Thomas. After the first of the company’s bingo clubs opened in 1966, Beacon went from strength to strength, opening the first new build bingo club in the UK in 1978 and opening the biggest bingo club in the world in 1995 in Cricklewood.
Beacon Bingo became part of the Praesepe Group in 2010 an in turn Praesepe was acquired by Gauselman in 2012. It wasn’t until 2020 that it was rebranded as Merkur Bingo, and Merkur Slots was also launched. At present, Merkur Bingo operates three bingo clubs located in Lowestoft, Cricklewood and Northampton, plus a number of arcades across the country.
The bingo experience you can expect will differ depending on which Merkur Bingo club you choose to visit. At the recently rebuilt Merkur Lowestoft, for instance, you’ll be able to enjoy air-conditioning, two bars, a diner serving delicious grub, views of the harbour and tons of comfortable seating while you play, while at the flagship Cricklewood club you can play games throughout the day, feel part of the bingo community with space for close to 3000 players, and be in with the chance to win whopping cash prizes. In fact, Merkur Cricklewood is a Guinness World Record holder, as it paid out the biggest single prize of a massive £100,000! Fancy your chances of winning big?
