Despite remaining central to the balls and number core, the beautiful game of bingo has taken some twists over the last few years. In fact, it would be fair to say, that over the last five years, how UK bingo is played has taken more twists than a Chubby Checker concert.
Comedy, music, and dance have all been seamlessly infused into the bingo world. Now, high-tech bingo brand Hijingo has unveiled a new cinematic and immersive bingo experience – ‘80s Power Trip’ featuring live entertainment, cutting-edge sonic effects, captivating footage and motion graphics.
Bringing the whole experience to life, is custom high-tech cloud-based software, costing over £1 million, designed to deliver an immersive feeling for consumers, utilising state-of-the-art technology comparable to the software employed at major events such as the Super Bowl and Eurovision.
Available for a limited run starting 19th July and ending 25th August, the ‘80s Power Trip,' is a multi-sensory futuristic bingo concept designed to combine the excitement of bingo with state-of-the-art technology to create an unforgettable journey of neon filled ‘80s nostalgia and surprises.
Players will be guided through the cinematic immersive experience with the help of the ‘80s Hijingobots (other-worldly masked dancers), on-screen characters, and state-of-the-art technology, during a 90-minute session including six rounds of the best bingo with six chances to win, plus prizes of up to £500 cash and a European holiday for two.
Located in London's Shoreditch, the 8,000 sq ft space can accommodate up to 200 players, featuring the exclusive “Neko Box” area, two cocktail bars, and a podium-like stage where winners are showered with glory and stand a chance to win jackpots and holidays.
