Bingo and Gaming Establishments Reopen After a Year Break

Bingo and Gaming Establishments Reopen After a Year Break

The past year has been challenging for the hospitality industry in the UK, with thriving businesses forced to close their doors for the greater good. 

With the various limitations hitting the nation, no one has been able to venture out to socialise in public for the best part of a year. But as restrictions began to lift, bingo and gaming establishments were left waiting for the green light. First came permission to gather in small groups outside, and finally, in May, indoor establishments were given the go-ahead to reopen.

With the successful rollout of the vaccine, there are desperate hopes that this will be the last time venues will have to shut down, with many teetering on the brink of survival. In Newcastle, bingo and gaming establishments can now welcome customers back, albeit with some restrictions. 

The Big Reopening

Newcastle has a reputation for being a city that likes to party, and it’s renowned for its thriving nightlife. With restrictions easing, it’s now possible to go out and enjoy a drink and perhaps a game of bingo. 

For fun, there’s nothing quite like Bongo’s Bingo, and that’s coming to Newcastle in June. With two events scheduled at Boiler Shop on South Street, Newcastle is set to enjoy a raving bingo party!

If you’re looking for a gaming establishment where you can play right away, there’s Buzz Bingo on Clifford Street. With new seating groups and sanitisation to make the venue as safe as possible, you can play with complete peace of mind. 

And of course, Buzz Bingo is more than just a bingo establishment – it’s also got slots, with big jackpots waiting to be won. Open till late with Twilight Bingo and the Slots Club; it’s never been easier to enjoy playing your favourite games. 

If you’re all about the total casino experience, there are plenty in Newcastle to choose from. Genting, Aspers and Grosvenor Casinos have all thrown their doors back open – and in the case of Grosvenor, there’s the chance to play 24/7. All of the casinos have made some changes to ensure patrons are safe, and if you want to read more about this, details are on their respective websites. 

The Rise of Online Play

During 2020 when all the venues were closed, players had to look elsewhere for their entertainment. Many turned to online casinos – and were surprised at just how immersive the experience was. 

Figures show an explosion in popularity with online play, and even as venues open back up, many players are opting to stick with online casinos. Huge providers like Hasbro, who released their Monopoly Live casino game, have been very popular over the last year, with players able to access an enormous selection of titles online. 

Part of the reason for the popularity is that online casinos have evolved and developed since they were first launched and now offer a range of options, including live dealer play. This brings an authentic casino atmosphere into the online world, allowing players to chat and interact just like in a real casino. 

Big brands have recognised the value in partnering with casinos to create new games, just like Hasbro has with Monopoly. This means that players are constantly being offered new titles, with the selection online ever-widening, which physical casinos simply can’t keep up with. 

Therefore, even as the real-life casinos in Newcastle open, you can expect the appetite for online casinos to remain. Could this be the future of casino play? Watch this space…
