According to UK Bingo.net, there are more than 100 million players of bingo worldwide. However, 80 percent are women. Did you know that only 20% of men actively play bingo?
Bingo is very feminine-focused with most ads directed at women. You can think about how many TV ads for bingo show groups of women having a drink and chatting while their friends play a few lines. Online bingo still offers chat, which means it is still female-focused.
Simon Jones, who rebranded WhichBingo and relaunched it, believes that major bingo sites’ advertising is too feminine and discourages men from playing. “All these pink websites and TV ads of women playing bingo while their husbands go to work would not change anyone’s mind about who is truly for online bingo. There are many programs that bingo sites fund on daytime TV. All of them tend to be female-oriented shows such as Loose Women and Away.
It is time for men to be more equal in bingo. Here are four ways to make bingo more masculine, whether you play online or at a bingo hall.
Have fun with your beer
Bingo is a social game that can be enjoyed with friends. You can enjoy a cold beer in most halls or social clubs. If you need one, staff members will always have a new one.
If you’re with a large group of friends, it could be turned into a contest. For example, the person who gets the most drinks in a round can win. Do you want to go to the lobby? You might also make your own booze bingo sheets from your favorite beers. You can also relax and play online with just a few beverages at home.
Play a game of football
Many bingo sites and halls continue to struggle to attract men players. However, this does not mean that you shouldn’t add your manly touches to bingo halls and websites.
You can watch the match live if you are a football fan. You can ask the TV screen to change channels in most bingo halls or social clubs. You could also watch the game using your headphones and a low volume on either your tablet or phone. After all, you don’t want your numbers to be missed!
Let’s face the facts, men love lifting weights. Why not incorporate this into your next round of bingo?
Online gaming allows you to visit the gym, or do a workout at your home before heading to the bingo hall. You could also include your trainer buddy in creating ‘weightlift bingo’. You can also include your training buddy in the creation of ‘weight lift bingo. The bingo caller could be your trainer and call out different weights, ranging from light to heavy. And you must lift what is called.
Men love swearing, whether they’re watching football or just hanging out with friends in the neighborhood. You could even make it a bingo game! This might not be a good idea at a bingo hall because some players take it very seriously. It might also not work well in a bar.
You should not allow anyone to use any word on your bingo card that isn’t already there. You can mark your bingo cards using a variety of swearwords. The person who crosses off their swearwords the fastest wins the game.
