Great movements in Bingo player stereotype
Bingo has always been considered a favorite pastime of elderly people, but its demographics have recently been going through such variations that this generally accepted notion should be changed. Some research studies conducted lately show that, even though bingo is still a popular social activity for the middle-aged, it is becoming increasingly appealing to younger players, as well.
Specifically in the UK, the popularity of online bingo has been experiencing a considerable growth, especially among younger generations of professionals. The 62 percent increase in the number of 45-under players in the past ten years is mostly owed to technological development, social opportunities that bingo offers, as well as the recent recession, which forced people to turn to inexpensive entertainment.
In terms of numbers, the UK bingo market has a player pool of around 3.2 million. Of this number, 700,000 are professionals between 18 and 25 years of age. Most of the players are women, aged around 47, whereas the male part of bingo population is somewhat younger, around 37. The tickets sold in the UK per year exceed the sum of GBP600 million.
Speaking of online bingo boost, its UK popularity is exceeded only in the US and Japan. These numbers only speak in favor of the claims that bingo is no longer reserved for pensioners, but that it's become a blooming business which attracts millions of players worldwide.
