The activities enjoyed by the younger generation are more diverse than ever before and a lot of young people don’t enjoy going out as much as they used to. Staying in is more common than ever and games such as bingo facilitate this. However, it would be unwise to assume that young people don’t enjoy making a trip to their local bingo hall as this is simply not the case.

Some of the bigger land-based bingo brands are reporting an increase in the number of young players visiting their bingo halls and although they are not as popular as they used to be, the variation of players visiting them is wider than ever before. Bingo is quickly on its way to becoming a game that is more diverse in terms of the players that it attracts.

Online patterns will tell if the popularity of the game remains with the younger generation but things certainly aren’t looking as bleak as they were a couple of years ago.
