Bingo Is No Longer Just For The Retired
We have all grown up playing maths bingo in school on days when we could not go out to play. We learned the basic ideas, and we were shown how it is random. Some of us have grown up around bingo playing Grandparents, and we have learned that the game can be considered nearly a sport for those who play often. We may have seen rituals performed for luck, or trinkets that were considered to be good omens.
The common image of bingo is rows of retired people in folding chairs with collections of daubers lined in front of them on the folding picnic tables. It is often imagined to be a slow game, with a monotonous number caller. Depending on your location you may envision the game to be held in a Church, or in a smoke filled warehouse.
What most don't realize is that bingo and especially online bingo, it has grown to far more than a retired person's pastime. There is a whole new attitude in the game. The games are often fast paced with high energy. More and more younger people are taking part, and spreading the word that the game is not what it once was believed to be. With the birth of the internet bingo has also exploded online.
If you decide to check out a bingo game in your area what you are likely to find is that you have the choice of electronic or paper and dauber. You will likely be located in a Bingo Parlor or Hall that offers refreshments, and maybe a meal, unless however you find bingo sites online. You are likely to find there is a good mix of ages that are there to play. Often times it will be 21 and older only if there is any type of monetary gain.
You may find that after a few games you are bringing your friends, and you are creating your own rituals. While bingo is truly a game of chance, you may find you ask Lady Luck for a lot of help. With the younger players taking part you may make a few new friends, and even plan on meeting each game night at a certain table. You may find that you have a favourite pattern or round, and that Bingo really is no longer only a game for the retired.
