Numbers are down for Bingo Halls but growth for online Bingo

By Becky Mosley - September 26 2008

The current economic situation along with the smoking ban has affected player levels at many land based bingo halls across the country.

Bingo halls have noticed a decline in players and a huge amount of clubs have closed their doors.

Sir Aubrey Brocklebank, non-executive chairman of Top Ten Holdings said in a pre-released statement before the companies AGM ” The spend per head has recovered to that of last year.” However he further went on to say
that the economic climate is “affecting the number of times customers visit the clubs.” Top Ten Bingo have bingo halls throughout the UK and also have online bingo games.

Current trends are showing that online bingo is still growing massively and we have already seen that some large bingo halls have launched their own online bingo sites which have proved to be profitable for them. There are around 3 million online bingo players in the UK at the moment it is estimated.

You will probably have noticed the amount of television and radio advertising for some online bingo sites which is enabling the sites to grow further and increase their player bases. Some of the bigger sites are now even sponsoring television shows at peak times in order to raise their profiles and gain more players.

There is also Mobile bingo which has really taken off, it is widely available. You are able to easily download the bingo games to your mobile phone handset and you can play on the move.

Not to forget the new craze of bingo being played on the television. The popularity of bingo on TV is increasing daily and it can all be done from the comfort of your favourite armchair with just your TV remote to hand. It is proving to be great entertainment for the whole family and is great fun.

Bingo players have realised there is no need to trek out to visit a bingo hall, when they can play online bingo at any time of day or night in the comfort of their own home.
