03 June 2024: National Bingo Day celebrations are set to return on Thursday 27th June 2024, with the Bingo industry joining forces to celebrate the love of the game and everything that makes it special.

Following the success over the last three years, operators from both retail and online will be coming together again to celebrate National Bingo Day, with a series of exclusive games, events, activities and promotions taking place in clubs and online throughout National Bingo Week (Monday 24th – Sunday 30th June) and National Bingo Day (Thursday 27th June). Bingo players can enjoy £10 off their next bingo game for bringing a friend or bingo newbie to any bingo club across the country over the duration of the week.

To further mark the occasion, a mystery celebrity bingo caller will be surprising players at one lucky club by hosting a special game of bingo ahead of National Bingo Day. This comes as new research commissioned by The Bingo Association revealed the nation’s favourite voices traits and accents as bingo goers know more than any the importance of a clear and distinct voice for calling the numbers. Irish accents came out on top as Britain’s favorite (15%), and warmth (38%) and smoothness (27%) were voted the most attractive voice traits.

On Friday 28th June 2024, bingo clubs up and down the country will also be hosting a charity bingo game held in support of The Bingo Association’s charity, Variety - The Children’s Charity. The game, played in each bingo club, is expected to raise over £20,000 for the charity, which will contribute to the total £1.8m charitable donations made by the industry since 2015.

Miles Baron, Chief Executive at The Bingo Association says: “We are thrilled to celebrate National Bingo Day and see how the industry and public come together for the love of bingo. This year’s celebrations give us a unique opportunity to celebrate the voices behind the game, as we invite a mystery celebrity bingo caller to host a unique game of bingo. We are looking forward to celebrating and supporting the best bingo callers in the country and continuing to provide players with a fun, sociable and inexpensive day and night out.”
