Scots Cash In On Online Bingo Success

Share Article

More than 1,500 Scottish bingo players have shared £300,000 on Scotland’s first dedicated online bingo website – http://www.bingoscotland.com – since it launched last month.

In excess of 1,700 players from Shetland to Selkirk are now registered with the website and 80 per cent of those playing have already experienced a win. Not surprisingly, the majority of registered players are female (82 per cent) with an average age of 37.

http://www.BingoScotland.com is the first regional bingo website of its kind to offer players the opportunity to compete against one another and to chat online with fellow Scots all across the country.

Created by the founders of the UK’s leading bingo website, ThinkBingo.com, players lay stakes from as little as 10p up to £1. The site features three virtual ‘bingo halls’ giving players the choice over where to play, who to play against or even who to chat to.

BingoScotland.com spokesperson Dylan Schlosberg said: “Scottish players are scooping up to £15,000 a day. Currently 20 per cent of the Scottish adult population are regular bingo players and we envisage that five per cent will be playing online by the end of 2006.

“The arrival of BingoScotland.com has not stopped bingo lovers from continuing to visit traditional bingo halls but it does mean they can play at a time that suits them, and extend friendships without having to think about what to wear!”

The soothing voice of Edinburgh’s Peter Russell, 2004 Scottish Bingo Caller of the Year, provides the bingo calls, and Scottish Chat Moderators look after 100+ players competing for up to three bingo jackpots between £30 and £80 on average with at least one jackpot running 24/7.

The minimum purchase to sign up is £10 and the balance is topped up or reduced as players win or lose. Special cash and non-cash prizes feature throughout the day including weekly £10,000 ‘coverall’ jackpots and quizzes.
