ANYONE FOR A GAME OF BINGO?
When I first started going out with my boyfriend Darren, I remember nervously going to his house for the first time to meet his Mum and the first thing she ever said to me was 'Oh, hello! Don't mind me love, I'm just playing my Bingo!'. I'd been so nervous to meet her but that definitely made me feel much more at ease very quickly! She's a total lover of online Bingo and to be honest, I never saw the attraction, I've had friends go to local Bingo nights and all sorts and until now, I didn't get it. Until I tried some Free Bingo online and honestly, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it!
Bingo Extra offers games of free Bingo with no deposit required (so no risk!) and I have to say, it's actually a lot of fun. I actually saw something on Pinterest (I'll edit in the link if I find it!) about budget date nights/ nights in with friends and one of the ideas was an online Bingo night, where you get a bunch of people over and all play online Bingo against each other the same room - yes you'll spend a little money playing, but you may also win a fair amount back! It's like a competition between you and your friends and as it's in a group, you can set a limit to how much you all spend and keep tabs on each other to make sure you're being careful - very important!
I think Bingo is considered one of those typical older lady things, but playing online is far from hugh Bingo halls full of blue rinses and sensible shoes, it's actually quite a lot of fun with friends and I think if you do limit it to just the odd occasion or set yourself a maximum limit for how much you can spend, it's a bit of harmless fun that may actually have a huge reward at the end of it. Personally, I've not played enough to win huge amounts, but I do know people that have won a few hundred from spending just £10 or £20 - not bad for a night in on the sofa!
What do you think? Does a Bingo night in sound like something you'd fancy doing with your friends?
