Michael Hess: Flutters Bingo, Hinckley

Flutters Bingo in Hinckley is located in the old Regent Theatre which became the Vogue Bingo and Social Club in 1968, and was later taken over by Flutters Bingo. As you can see from the photographs the venue retains the original decor and thankfully a false ceiling wasn't put in during the conversion for bingo. There's a lovely shot of the 'Elvis purse': many players have their 'lucky charms', this one probably keeping a lady company whilst dabbing. The other photos show players in the main session, and playing on the cashline boards and slots during the interval.
