If you’re one of those people who simply adore the royal family — bad gossip and everything — then you’re in for a treat. We’ve come up with a new way to make you learn about (and remember!) the royal family: through bingo.
The classic game of bingo has recently seen a rise in activity, with 3.5 million active players across the country. That said, we thought it would be fun to make a game and lighten the mood amidst the tense reports of drama amongst the royal family (let’s leave Meghan Markle and Prince Harry alone for once!). The classic game of bingo is the best way to do this, as it is said to be around since the 1920s, or the time of King George VI. Not to mention, there are more options now than ever. Players can choose from the classic 90, 75, 80, and 30-ball bingo variations, with Foxy Bingo highlighting that there are plenty of rooms to choose from, with many offering jackpots. Sometimes, however, it’s fun to look for even more alternatives to the game, which is why we’ve decided to put a fun twist on the classic game by incorporating our favourite royals! Instead of calling out the usual bingo names, try using the names of different royals instead, as listed below. We hope we haven’t missed any of your favourites!
