UK Bingo Plays will soon be shouting ‘Condo!’ instead of house when they win at Bingo. Today the UK’s government will release its report into the EU’s requests that the UK’s Bingo games be changed from the standard 90 Ball UK style game to the 75 Ball USA style game.
The traditional UK game will be phased out from the start of 2008 with the big chains having to re-tool their calling machines to do the new style of game. Grass roots Bingo fans are expected to start complaining and arranging petitions shortly. The move will harmonise the Bingo industry throughout Europe and the wider world.
