Gone are the days when Bingo was something your Nan played down the social club on a Saturday night.
It’s becoming increasingly popular with youngsters and, recognising this, Mecca Bingo has given their names for numbers an overhaul in-keeping with the 21st century.
The company has unveiled a whole host of new ‘modern’ calls and is trialling them in its clubs.
Bingo fans and Mecca members across the UK have been voting on which new calls they want to see replace traditional shouts such as “two little ducks” and “legs eleven”.
Among the updated calls are ‘Tinder date’ for 8 and “Netflix and chill” for 69 – the less said about that one the better.
Pssst, if you don’t understand the significance of Netflix and chill representing 69, maybe ask a ‘worldly’ friend (but not your child and/or parent).
Below are a list of other Bingo calls replacing the more traditional ones. Let us know which you prefer in the poll below.
Top 10 new Bingo calls
Little Mix – 6 (previously Half a Dozen)
Selfie Queen – 17 (previously Dancing Queen)
Tag A Mate – 48 (previously Four Dozen)
Netflix & Chill – 69 (previously Anyway Up)
Tinder Date – 8 (previously Garden Gate)
Dabbing machine – 15 (previously Young and Keen)
Hipster Heaven – 27 (previously Duck and a Crutch)
Lads on tour – 24 (previously Knock at the Door)
Adele – 25 (previously Duck and Dive)
YOLO – 1 (previously Kelly’s Eye)
Spokesperson for Mecca Bingo , Caroline Webb, said: “With bingo attracting record numbers of younger players, we wanted to tap into the resurgence of interest in the game, and what better way than by refreshing one of the most iconic things about bingo – its calls for the numbers!
“Bingo calls are rarely used in Britain’s bingo halls these days, so the trial of 21 century inspired calls is sure to ignite excitement amongst regular players.
“Likewise, the references to modern culture phenomena and trends, such as hipsters and Tinder, and massive stars, like Adele and Little Mix is likely to appeal to the increasingly younger crowd which can be found playing bingo.”
