In the early days of bingo, women’s involvement has shaped the sense of belonging in clubs. Women are key to organizing bingo in many clubs since the bingo game was often ran through women’s committees. They often enlisted man as a caller, out of the widely held belief that calling required loud male voice, and the ability to control a sometimes-energetic group of female players.

However, the work of selling tickets, working out prize money, verifying winners, and paying out was and is usually women’s work.

Eventually, bingo ended up in women’s hands because they were regular players, and because no one els would reliably do it.

There is an entire history of why bingo is more attractive to women.

Bingo is a popular pastime that is has been played for decades and is very popular in Britain, the USA, and of course with the help of online gaming, all around the world. This gives the opportunity to be regularly played both online and in bingo halls or casinos.

As a matter of fact, bingo is one of the most popular games in the UK! People all over the world associate the game with the Brits.

There are around 3.5 million bingo players playing online in the UK, with numbers increasing year on year. Especially players in the online bingo sphere.

The UK Gambling Commission has been actively involved in ensuring all online bingo players located anywhere in Great Britain can play online bingo online is a safe and secure environment, and they have done this by insisting that any bingo site offering their services to the UK must obtain one of their online gambling licenses.

This year Prince William and Kate Middleton have spent a lot of time getting in touch with care workers in the UK and just like many other Brits, the members of the royal family like to be in the spotlight by enjoying a nice game of bingo. While searching for a good location, Shire Hall was picked by the royal couple as the best destination where they to the opportunity to play bingo with the residents.

The winning, of course, will go to charity as in the UK you can raise money for charity by running a poker night or a bingo night. There are of course rules you need to follow in the non-commercial equal chance gaming activities such as:

  • In non-commercial equal chance gaming the money is raised for charity by charging an entrance fee, participation fee, or through other payments related to the gaming.
  • The maximum amount that a player may be charged is £8 per day (this includes entrance or participation fees, stakes, and any other payments in relation to the gaming).
  • You must ensure that the total amount paid out in prizes remains below £600 in total across all players. However, where an event is the final one of a series in which all of the players have previously taken part, a higher prize fund of up to £900 is allowed. (Source:

Here is news for you, it is often said that the game of bingo actually originated in Italy, so it might not be too surprising that you can find bingo halls and online bingo sites galore in Italy.

The earliest game of bingo was called Gioco del Lotto and was around as long ago as the 16th century! Even today, Italy is a top place to enjoy a few games of bingo, and you will have no difficulty finding somewhere to play.

America is home to Sin City, one of the top gambling destinations anywhere in the world, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that the USA is known as one of the nations to truly love bingo. Actually, America claims that it is the birthplace of modern bingo after the game was introduced to the nation during the 1920s.

It very surprising that it was the Catholic church that helped to cement the popularity of the game amongst the population, using bingo as a method of generating funds. Charities, too, seized on the game to raise money for their organizations.

Even today, commercial bingo games can be found running in casinos, while in American schools, bingo is used as an educational tool.

There is one difference between the game as it’s played in America and in the UK, however. In the USA, 75-ball bingo is most popular, while the original 90-ball game is still the top choice in the United Kingdom.

And you’ve to guest it, the top crowd is women!

As you can see, bingo is not just a UK phenomenon! No matter where in the world you are, you are sure to find a game going on somewhere near you, even if it’s through an online bingo site!
