Bingo Hideout, one of the UK’s leading bingo portals, launches new social network for online bingo
6 April 2009 – With an estimated 500,000* Brits playing online bingo every month – and numbers
continuing to grow – Bingo Hideout, one of the UK’s leading bingo portals, has launched a new
Facebook-style social network for fans of the web-based game.
Bingo Hideout already features offers and news from over 50 top bingo websites including Foxy Bingo,
Wink Bingo and Gala Bingo, with the new social network designed to offer an online community where
members can chat about everything from the latest bingo deals to weekend plans.
Joining is free and members can create their own profile page where they can upload photos, write
messages, contact friends, write on ‘walls’ and form common interest groups.
Ben Thorns, director of Bingo Hideout, says: “Social networking sites have become an important part
of people’s lives as they offer an easily accessible, free and user friendly method of keeping in
touch. What we have seen with online bingo is that the social side is an integral part of its
popularity, so we wanted to offer our members the opportunity to make the most of the interaction
in a fun and convenient way.”
Established in 2006, Bingo Hideout has grown to become one of the UK’s leading bingo portals and
now has over 25,000 members.
Ben adds: “Just like sites such as Facebook, our new social network allows members to keep in
touch with friends, share photographs and catch up with gossip. On our site they can be part
of a community that shares a love of bingo, with the added extra of finding out the best offers
and promotions from the world of online bingo.”
