With 126 locations already operating across Great Britain, Buzz Bingo may sound like the new bingo brand on the block - having 'launched' in September 2018 - but in fact, it has a substantial head start over lesser-known rivals. This is because this land-based bingo club was initially known as your local Gala Bingo Club until the rebrand in September 2018 (though it is still gradually being rolled out across the UK).
Not to confuse with the Gala online bingo website which is actually owned by a separate company, Buzz Bingo is a new fantastic modern rebrand with fabulous bingo and slots which can be enjoyed at any land-based club as well as online.
Buzz Bingo : Online & Clubs
Re-branding the local Gala Bingo hall to the new hip new Buzz Bingo has helped reinvigorate the brand with its Glitzy new look which now engages with millennials. The aim of the brand was for Britain to 'fall in love with bingo again', and the name change to 'buzz' seems a slick way of escaping the slower paced, stereotype attached to the game. But the brand doesn't discriminate as it is still a brand which can be enjoyed by all types of bingo loving players no matter how old.
To help with this crucial rebrand they've also partnered with Playtech, who are among the top software providers for online bingo sites and Casinos in the UK which means they can offer the same level of excitement to players online at BuzzBingo.com alongside local Buzz Bingo Clubs.
Buzz Bingo Clubs
Hundreds of Gala Bingo Clubs have already been rebranded to Buzz Bingo, is it one of yours? If not then one could soon be heading your way!
Buzz Bingo are working to make this game as 'cool' as it has ever been, with your local bingo club serving up a fine social experience.
In terms of the main event - the bingo itself - there are both paper and electronic formats for players to choose from based on preference. The former is arguably more for traditionalists, much like myself while the latter involves an electronic touchpad and is easy to pick up for the technologically savvy. Multiple prizes are on offer, keeping the buzz alive even if you don't get full house during the game.
As well as providing traditional bingo books there are slot machines with which you can play at leisure. A sense of competition among players is important; various regional and even national slot tournaments allow players to compete against each other across the 126 clubs nationwide.
Not sure where your nearest club is? Simply type your town, city or postcode into the search tool on the BuzzBingo.com website, and it'll show you where to find it. You'll find one in or near most major cities across the UK; unfortunately, though they have no clubs in Northern Ireland as of yet. However, this doesn't mean you can't still enjoy their online experience if you live in that region.

In addition to engaging with a new generation of bingo players into land-based halls across the country, they have developed a strong online presence for those that prefer a more electronic approach to the game.
