Online Bingo Players in the UK

Mar 7, 2008
There is a multitude not only of online bingo sites, but of networking bingo sites that game players across the UK are hooked up to. Through the bingo networks, players can chat to one another, find out about new sites and new games, big winners and tips, and virtually everything to do with online bingo.

Through networks such as these, UK players are able to sidestep the boredom that may set in from only knowing and playing one specific bingo site; and god knows how quickly the glamour can dissipate from online bingo without the steady chat and support of other fanatics out there. Networking is the way to keep online bingo light, exciting and part of the daily routine - assuming that's what you want!

Demographics

Apparently for young women in the United Kingdom, bingo is the most popular leisure hobby and given the tendency of women 20-25 to spend a lot of time on the internet, it follows that this demographic group spends a lot of time playing online bingo.

To cash in on this trend, big name companies on the internet have begun their own sites, networks and chatrooms. Even traditional bingo parlours have moved their services online, determined not to miss out on all the virtual money that's flying around. It is estimated that 50 000 people are playing online bingo instead of showing up to their local parlour these days and by far, most of these players are women under 50.

St. Minver Ltd. surveys showed that the UK was third overall for the most online bingo players, behind the US and Japan. That said, the UK was dubbed the fastest growing market for online bingo, and this has advertisers and foreign bingo companies swarming all over the country via your telephone and wireless connections.

Despite the stigma of the bingo parlour, current statistics show that people over the age of 65 only make up 2% of the total bingo-playing population. The highest number of players, some 29%, are between the ages of 35 and 44. Given the unusually high number of online bingo players in the UK, this means that most of them are quite young and not at all destined for the nursing home at the end of the day and maybe knowing this will spread the hobby even further throughout the country. Clearly, no one wants to admit to playing a grandmother's game. But bingo is obviously (according to the statistics) a young woman's game these days.
