Having lived in London for more than 5 years without ever having played Bingo, I thought it is about time to finally give it a try. And since it is much more fun together with a bunch of nice people, I need you. Many of you :-)

Let's enjoy an evening of Bingo at Mecca Bingo in Camden.


Bingo !!!


Here's how a typical Bingo night looks like...

• before 19:30 early session

• 19:30 - 20:00 first half of main session

• 20:00 - 20:30 break to get some drinks

• 20:30 - 21:00 second half of main session

• after 21:00 late session

During the early and late session 3 games are played, while in each half of the main session 6 games are played. Players tick off the numbers called by the caller on their scoring cards and hope to win by being the first to complete 1, 2 or 3 lines of 5 numbers. During each game there will be 3 winners (1 line, 2 lines, 3 lines complete). Prize money can be up to several hundred or even thousands pounds depending on the number of players participating.

We will join the 2 halfs of the main session (plus optionally the late session, if you can't get enough :-) ). The Bingo tickets for ALL games of the main session cost 15 pounds. There are no hidden costs !!! We can use the break at 20:00 to get some drinks and to talk about our respective winning strategies :-)

We will meet at 18:30 at the exit of Camden Underground station. If you can't make it in time, please come directly to the venue. Once at the venue you will have to become a member of Mecca Bingo (membership is free). I will explain the game to you in more detail at the venue.

It's a very traditional British pastime. I hope to see many of you at the bingo :-)

      well, all agreed that Bingo as a one time event is fun :-) It surely was an interesting experience. Miena even won 70 pounds. If you find a bunch of people, it is fun for as a night out, but as a regular event... I don't know... :-)
