Charity Bingo Sites
We all love to do our bit for charity (mate) and some bingo brands like to help out and do their bit too. By playing at selected sites you can play bingo as usual, but donations will be made to a chosen charity. Some brands such as Tickety Boo and Pink Ribbon are run solely to support specific charities. Others like Tidy and Mecca for example have a chosen charity and will support it through various games. Note that playing in these games doesn't effect the price you pay or the jackpots on offer - donations are made from profits.
Gala Bingo players have been helping charity, raising money through 52 Lives Bingo games each week.
Mecca are supporting The Carers Trust through charity games being played online and in clubs. In 2018 they raised over £300,000 for this good cause.
Give Back Bingo donates profits from it's bingo games every month to a featured charity. Past good causes have included Save The Elephants, Giraffe, Dogs Trust and Paws.
Details correct at time of publication.
Interestingly since we first created this section there's been a number of changes on the charity bingo scene. Tickety Boo Games which supported Marie Curie has closed down, whilst Tidy Bingo's Help For Heroes games ended in August 2016 when the site changed hands. Charity Bingo has also changed hands but doesn't seem to be updating with regards it's charitable activities.
Whilst we admire sites that help raise funds for charity, we are sceptical about how players actually perceive them. In other words if Site A and Site B are on the same network we're not sure if a player is more or less likely to choose A over B simply because A supports good causes.
We do feel that players are likely to play specific games within a site like Mecca, Foxy or Wink rather than choose a site such as Pink Ribbon. We may be wrong so we'd be happy to hear your views on charity bingo sites and games.
