Next week, the UK is celebrating its second-ever National Bingo Day. The annual event, which has been big in the US for quite some time, was a resounding success in 2021, and The Bingo Association and its bingo operator members are hoping that 2022 will see even more bingo fans come together to enjoy a series of special games and compete for super-sized prize pools.
What is National Bingo Day?
National Bingo Day is a day that is specially dedicated to the game of bingo, and it falls on the 27th of June. The event brings together both online and land-based bingo companies, the majority of whom organise extra-special events and promotions.
The event is backed by The Bingo Association and is promoted via leaflets and banners that are displayed on online bingo sites and in bingo halls across the UK.
This year, National Bingo Day will be marked on Monday, 27th June 2022, and The Bingo Association’s CEO Miles Baron has just announced that there will be an extra-large prize pool, as well as the chance to raise funds for charity.
What events will be taking place?
While National Bingo Day is on the 27th of June, this year’s celebrations will be starting early.
On 24th June, many land-based bingo halls will be welcoming their local MPs who will be joining customers for a special charity bingo game that is set to raise at least £15,000 for good causes. On the same day, National Bingo Game tickets will be half-price for both the afternoon and evening games.
On 27th June, clubs across the UK will participate in an exclusive National Bingo Game with an enhanced prize of £100,000 that must be won. Both the afternoon and evening games will also feature a £50,000 Community Prize that will be awarded to the bingo club that wins the game in the fewest calls.
Many operators will also be taking the opportunity to help their customers celebrate National Bingo Day 2022 in other ways. For example, Mecca Bingo is offering new players the chance to play bingo and grab a drink for just £5 on the 26th of June while Mecca’s online bingo site is hosting a £100k Winners Weekend that will create 2,000 winners.
Here at WhichBingo we are providing something a bit different for our readers and hosting a live interactive quiz with special guest host Greg Scott. Great prizes for top scorers, don’t forget to set your alarm and join in 7.30pm Monday 27th June.
