National Bingo Week 2024 - What's On

Sue Dawson

What is National Bingo Week?

National Bingo Week 2024 is an expansion of National Bingo Day and runs from 24th – 30th June.

National Bingo Day itself is a fairly recent addition to the UK calendar; the British bingo industry imported the idea from the USA (where there’s a national day for pretty well everything) in 2021, as an excuse for a big celebration in bingo clubs as they reopened after more than a year of enforced closures.  Now, it’s an awareness raising exercise.

27th June is the actual day and this year it falls on a Thursday.  Historically the biggest bingo promotions, on and offline, have been run at the weekend when players have more time so it makes a great deal of sense to extend National Bingo Day into National Bingo Week.

National Bingo Week in clubs

The National Bingo Day website has a list of participating clubs, and the National Bingo Game website has a banner advertising National Bingo Day, but this year they largely seem to be leaving it to the individual clubs to decide how to celebrate.  A couple of National Bingo Game promotions is running – half price tickets on National Bingo Day and a community share of £50,000 for the winning club on Saturday 29th – but apart from that it’s a case of checking with your local club to see what special events they have during the week.

For example, many Buzz Bingo clubs have a National Bingo Week promotion of half price bingo in the Evening Main Event on Friday 28th June, and most Mecca Bingo clubs are giving players one set of tickets free in the Main Game on National Bingo Day.

National Bingo Week online

In the world of online bingo, there’s several promotions designed to make the game even more entertaining than usual.

At Foxy Bingo there’s a cut price bingo tickets promotion running all week in the Foxy Fortunes Room, for 24 games running from 7pm – 8.55pm every evening.  Buy a bundle with 6 or 12 tickets for every game in advance and get a massive 65% off.  There’s £12,000 to be won in all during National Bingo Week.

Playtech bingo sites are marking the occasion with a rerun of one of their most popular promotions ever, Deal Or No Deal escalator jackpots!  Each escalator jackpot is a guaranteed £25,000 and they run from 8pm till 10pm in Deal Or No Deal 90 on 27th and 28th June.

At Jackpotjoy and Double Bubble Bingo there’s special deals all week on 75 ball bingo, extra features in 75 ball Superlinks and two free games in 90 ball Superlinks on National Bingo Day itself (1.45pm and 8.45pm).  They’ve also designated Saturday 29th June as Winners Day, with extra features randomly added to games in the 80 ball room and an extra £2500 of guaranteed prizes in the 11pm Session Bingo.

At tombola the Best of Bingo promotion sees guaranteed prizes in a different bingo room every day of National Bingo Week, and they’ve also given their classic bingo90 game a new look and feel.

Pragmatic Play bingo sites are celebrating for the entire month of June with the seasonal special Double Take bingo room (aka June Jamboree) which is open from 7pm till 8pm every evening.  Why Double Take? It’s because you get double the number of tickets, as long as you buy a multiple of 6 (B6G6F rather than BOGOF).

Dragonfish bingo sites are keeping it super simple this year with just one special game to be played at 8pm on National Bingo Day itself.  Tickets are 10p each and there’s a prize pool of £1000, split £600 full house, £300 2 lines, £100 1 line.  It’s a cash only game and if you don’t have at least 10p cash in your account you will not even be able to enter the bingo room.

Of course, National Bingo Week is not just about promotions – it’s all about the joy of playing bingo.  To that end, we’re delighted to be able to bring you an exclusive offer for the innovative new bingo product Bingo Plus, just in time for National Bingo Week.  Bingo Plus is the only way for online players to join in the National Bingo Game.
