I was first introduced to Bingo when I was about eight years old. At the time, I thought Bingo was a game that only young kids and old people played. During grade school, I can remember some of my teachers distributing bingo cards and game pieces to our class. It was part of our ‘fun time,’ and the winnings were usually some type of cheap toy, crayons, watercolors, or coloring book.
By the time I entered high school, teachers had stopped including Bingo into their format. However, I can remember one of my friends actually played real bingo. Of course, I teased her, since in my fourteen-year old brain it was something only little kids and old people played. She laughed along with me, and said, “I thought the same thing!” “However, I really had fun!” So what got her into playing bingo? Food! The local Bingo group (where her mother was active) was having a crab feast, with a percentage of the proceeds being donated to a local charity. Since she loved seafood, she went along with her mom and begrudgingly played Bingo. Surprisingly, she enjoyed it, much to her mom’s happiness, since they now had a weekly mom/daughter outing. Occasionally she won cash too.
Over the years, I’ve met several young people that play Bingo, so earlier assumption was inaccurate. For my friends the big draw is hanging out with friends, and the winnings that some of them receive is a nice bonus. While many play at a local location. There are few that play bingo online also.
