Old News - Playing Bingo
Over the years, Playing Bingo has taken various guises and forms on the web. With our latest revision we had to move a number of our old sections into this Old News archive. We used to use blogger.com to create our blogs, but they took away support for FTP publishing back in 2010 which meant we could no longer use that service to continue our blog sections here at the site.
This old news is collected here as an archive for future posterity. There are a number of interesting old posts in there that may still be of interest as well as other bingo info that now is no longer news. You can search it using the google search box in the top right, or navigate through via the links in this archive section.
