The game of Bingo has seen many an overhaul over the last few decades. From rave-infused bingo events to the advancement of online bingo, the UK bingo scene has seen it all. However, there could be a big change coming to a bingo venue near you.

Foxy Bingo has said it is considering redesigning its game later this year after millennials apparently demanded fresh phrases. The online bingo company polled its customers to get their preferred terms for a “millennial bingo” version of the game, which it is considering releasing later in the year

The idea of ‘woke bingo’ originated from the Foxy Bingo website’s chat rooms, where bingo players would sometimes use alternatives instead of the traditional bingo calls. The website then surveyed its customers asking them to vote for their top 20 favourite new bingo calls after compiling a list of suggestions from the chatrooms.

New Woke Bingo Calls:

  • Get an Uber from mine………………number 9
  • Not another Brexit Debate…………..number 48
  • Avocado on a plate……………………number 38
  • Haters gonna hate…………………….number 78
  • Wills and Kate………………………….number 88
  • Amazon Prime…………………………number 49
  • Recycle More…………………………..number 74
  • Love Island time………………………number 39

Jonathan Bowden, a director at Foxy Bingo said:

 “We’re seeing a record number of younger players visiting the site to play bingo and the new wave of bingo calls is switching things up.”

“I’m sure it won’t be long before Megxit is being used,”

Meanwhile, the potential change to the bingo calls isn’t to everyone’s liking. 12-time winner of Bingo Caller of the Year, Blake Robson, 54, who works in South Shields said that the new calls would not work for a traditional live bingo audience. Blake said:

“It would be a real shame to see traditional calls disappear.

“Rather than new calls, we should teach the younger generation about the old calls. Bingo is part of Britain’s tradition.”

  1. You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I to find this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me. I’m having a look forward for your next submit, I?¦ll try to get the hold of it!
