Bingo Romance

Friday, Feb. 17th 2017 11:02 AM

It’s love week! St. Valentine’s Day may have passed, but surely ‘amour’ deserves more than a paltry day to celebrate the union of souls! So we thought we’d continue the celebrations with a couple of bingo romance stories to warm your cockles. With thousands of people playing bingo in halls across the country every night it’s inevitable that eyes will meet across crowded tables and nature will take its course.

Two couples who met at the bingo have celebrated meeting at the bingo in their own special way this week. Read on with a Kleenex handy!

Saturday, Feb. 4th 2017 2:50 PM

We’re really pleased that land based bingo is still notching up the big wins in the clubs, as just like online bingo, the the allure of a life changing win is a real draw that keeps the players playing bingo. The latest big land based winner is an anonymous granny who bagged and impressive bingo win of £233,000 at Mecca Bingo in Sale.

The National Game, which the lucky lady won is a linked game that is played across clubs in the UK simultaneously. This means that you are unfortunately playing against thousands and thousands of other players, not just the few hundred that may be sat around you in your club.

Puppy Power In Glasgow Mecca Bingo

Thursday, Jan. 19th 2017 2:09 PM

Over the past few years we’ve seen some strange promotional activities in bingo halls, strippers at Mecca Ayr is one that immediately springs to mind! And the latest one is also in a Scottish club, cute dogs to cheer up players with the winter blues in Mecca’s Glasgow Springfield Quay club.

Mecca Bingo have got together with Guide Dogs Scotland to offer bingo players the chance to ‘cuddle a mutt’ to help uplift their spirits during the month that for some people is just plain depressing. The stripping night did end in complaints (not from the customers…), but we doubt that there will be any complaints this time around.

Bingo Hall Slots

Are B3 Machines
A Scourge?

B3 machines, a harmless distraction during session breaks or the scourge of bingo halls? Well, according to the Christian Institute, they constitute ‘legalised mugging’. Recent legislation has allowed the pay outs on free standing slot machine to increase in both bingo halls and casinos. Great news, but, at the same time the machines are allowed to accept higher stakes (potentially bad news for some…).

They noted that as reported by the BBC that the machines are positioned within clubs so that patrons cannot cannot enter without passing them (perhaps in the same way ‘impulse buys’ are located at the checkouts of supermarkets). Underlying this is the notion that problem gamblers will find it difficult to pass without stopping and punting.

Mecca Bingo’s Lucky Black Cats

Thursday, Oct. 27th 2016 4:47 PM

I always thought that black cats were an unlucky portent of doom, specifically because of their preferred location at the heels of witch, or riding on the back of a broomstick with their mistress flying across a full moon filled night.

Looks like I’m completely wrong though, as historically they are seen as good omens. But this may also be a regional thing, maybe Scottish black cats are luckier than Welsh black cats (I’m sure one crossing your path used to be bad luck!). However, Mecca Bingo in The Forge, Glasgow are taking this literally by adding two black cats to their team in the hope that it will bring the club and it’s players luck.
