Glamorous bingo prizes Bingo gets a pretty bad wrap. It often conjures up images of old ladies with coiffed blue rinses and cigarette smoke or slippers (worn outdoors!) and flowery smocks (not the new age hippie kind), but that was in the decades gone by and thankfully now times have definitely changed.
Nowadays the average bingo player in the UK falls into the 25 to 40 age category, which is surprising, compared to the 50 to Zimmer frame age group that springs to mind. The technology has also come into the present day; now many women prefer to play online bingo, that way they can still keep their slippers on without committing a huge faux pas (comfy). The online bingo providers have also noticed the shift and are catering more to younger women with more exciting prizes focusing on fashionable items that young women want. The game prizes have really stepped up from drab to desirable; they now range from hip and trendy brands such as TopShop and BodyShop, to more glamorous offerings such as gorgeous YSL perfumes, “Touch of class” luxe hampers and an Exclusive Red Wine gift box set.
The games themselves haven’t changed; it’s still as simple as ever which is probably for the best, as if it were any harder it wouldn’t be any fun. Winning is pretty easy, just match the numbers on your strip to the numbers that have been called out and once you have a full line of numbers you can call bingo. Strips of numbers and daubing away at the matching ones is quite standard, although you can add a little bit of glam to the number strips by changing the dauber to a heart or a star, which is pretty cute. I think the biggest way that bingo has advanced is by adding a chat rooms feature to the online games. Over the past few years social networking has blown up and most of us spend more time talking to other people online than doing anything else, so it makes sense, and much more fun, to join the two.
Also if you enjoy the talking and the winning more than you do the number daubing, the website can do the daubing for you, leaving you free to carry-on talking. So, next time you’re looking for a glamorous game to play, try bingo, heck, you might even win a Luxury foot spa and trade up from those old slippers!
