Land Bingo Is Alive And Well!

Saturday, Mar. 11th 2017 10:59 AM

The past couple of decades have been tumultuous for the land based bingo industry. The only real reprieve came from the taxation reduction in the 2015 budget which was literally a lifeline for many struggling bingo halls.

One main perceived threat to bingo halls has been the growth in online bingo. We say ‘perceived’ as we have yet to see any research which ‘proves’ that Foxy and friends are actually stealing customers from the halls.

Saturday, Feb. 4th 2017 2:50 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.

The stripping night did end in complaints (not from the customers…), but we doubt that there will be any complaints this time around.
