Bingo-It’s Not Just For Old Ladies Anymore
Bingo is no longer a game for little old ladies sitting in a smoky church basement or bingo club staring intently and daubing furiously at reams of bingo cards in front of them. Bingo has attracted a much younger stylish crowd and in the UK is quite common to see celebrities playing at bingo clubs across the country. Many of these celebrities have become hooked on the online version of the game. Supermodel Katie Price is a regular in the internet bingo world. Ms. Price not only plays online bingo she is the bingo ambassador for Foxy bingo which is widely known for their humorous television ads featuring Foxy the fox. Katie has been known to take over the duties as chat room monitor and also is a regular participant on Foxy Bingo’s forums. Katie has been known to answer questions from fans and has attracted many younger female players to the site.
Katherine Zeta Jones is known to be a bingo fanatic. One of the best actresses of her generation Ms. Zeta Jones is a big fan of American style 75 ball bingo. Ms. Zeta Jones hosts Christmas bingo parties in her home and provides her guests with holiday themed bingo cards. The games are rumored to be very popular with friends.
Probably the most famous bingo celebrity of them all is Sharon Osbourne, wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne, and a star in her own right. Given Ozzy’s reputation as a wild man most people would not suspect that Sharon would be a bingo fanatic. Sharon is ambassador for bingo giant Gala Bingo, one of the oldest bingo providers in the UK. Gala has been providing land based bingo in the UK for decades and entered the internet bingo market a few years ago. Sharon also has her own bingo information called Sharon Osbourne Bingo. Sharon’s site will take you to some fabulous games at gala Bingo.
Irish model Glenda Gibson is the bingo ambassador for Ireland’s Rehab Bingo. Rehab Bingo is a fundraising site for a leading social services group and all the money goes to fund good causes. Glenda has her own 90 ball bingo game and also provides a special weekend game. English actress, singer and television personality Denise Van Outen is a big bingo fan. Denise van Outen can be found playing at her favorite Essex bingo clubs. As can be seen bingo both land based and online has attracted a much younger crown who enjoy the camaraderie and fun that a good game of bingo provides.
