In a previous post, we talked about how online bingo is crossing generation lines. While 30 years ago a typical bingo hall was nothing but a sea of grey hair, today’s online bingo sites are filled with online bingo players as young as 21, all looking for their next big score.
But even though bingo is now anyone’s game, regardless of age (as long as they’re over 21, of course), senior citizens still have a love affair with playing bingo, online or live. Here’s a look at the main reasons why senior citizens just can’t get enough of playing bingo.
It’s a great way for seniors to mingle
Many senior citizens find themselves incredibly bored in retirement. Sure, we all dream of hitting it rich, no longer having to work. But the truth is, a lot of us wouldn’t know what to do with ourselves. Senior citizens who play bingo know this first hand. That’s why they love the game. Bingo is a great way to enjoy life with friends—and meet new ones, too. While retirement can get a little boring, bingo halls offer seniors a great escape from monotony.
It’s a fun, non-threatening form of gambling
Because bingo halls tend to attract an older generation, senior citizens playing bingo don’t have to worry too much about younger folks being aggressive with vulgar language or excessive noise. That’s not necessarily true in other community games like poker.
Online bingo is a great alternative for non-mobile senior citizens
Today’s senior citizens are doing a lot more than reading old copies of Reader’s Digest and playing bridge with their friends. Today’s tech-savvy seniors are making their way online to play online bingo with other senior citizens. And it’s happening more than you think. As senior citizens age and become less mobile, online bingo is a great way for seniors to continue playing the game they love with friends—old and new.
Whether you’re young—or just young at heart—online bingo brings you a great opportunity to have a blast, enjoy life, and win some money along the way.
