Bingo – The Biggest Celebrity Addiction Right Now

The Socialite discovers there’s no secret to playing bingo and that it may just be the biggest celebrity addiction right now, check it out…

Bingo may sound dowdy, outdated, and it’s the kind of stuff that only pensioners and geriatrics play. You might imagine a group of little old ladies gathered in your local church basement, but you might be surprised that there are a lot of players out there not just in your dingy bingo halls but more so online too. There are also health benefits that you can get from playing bingo. According to the British Psychological Society, playing bingo improves memory and increases mental speed of those who play regularly as opposed to non players. Bingo is indeed a universal game and the rules are pretty basic. It transcends all cultures and there are no physical requirements for you to be able to play.

Celebrities aren’t just playing bingo for charity events and such but they thoroughly enjoy this game. Right now, celebrities are finding their own sweet time to play bingo with their friends and family. Now, many are getting into it because they can access their game via their android phone or tablet with just a swipe of a finger. Celebrities like Katie Price and Emma Bunton are nominated as Celebrity Moms of the Year by FoxyBingo and  there are around 60 million players online in the US alone.

Catherine Zeta Jones is famously known for hosting bingo games during the holidays with friends and family. U2’s Bono is also known to dabble in bingo where he used to hang out in a café in Dublin that doubled as a bingo hall. Russell Crowe and former Take That member Gary Barlow are also splendid bingo callers. Rockstar families like the Osbournes and the Jaggers are also big bingo fans and are known to host bingo parties every so often. So as the bingo craze sweeps the nation it’s nice to know that it’s not just us mere mortals who have caught the bug…
