There is almost constant news about how dire the land based bingo halls are doing, online bingo appears to be on the up and up and yet the mother of the game appears to be in the doldrums. Gala Bingo at Peterborough however is currently defying the trend. The regular bingo players at Gala Bingo Peterborough have been joined by more and more people keen to take part in the atmosphere, special offers and of course the excellent bingo games and facilities, so much so that the management of the Gala bingo Club at Peterborough have even needed to turn bingo players away as they have reached capacity.
This reversal of fortunes for Gala Bingo at Peterborough has been astounding, from attendance numbers dropping to only 100 in 2007 after the smoking ban the club has strived to put things back on track and now the club attendance figures have risen by an outstanding 400%. This huge turnaround has been by the dedication and hard work of the Gala Bingo club Peterborough staff members but also by the implementation of special offers and promotions to attract new players.
The management team believe that the change in promotional tactics has helped put the Gala bingo club Peterborough firmly back on the map. However they also note that local people are trying cost cutting, and in attempt to save money spent on their usual expensive nights in town at restaurants and clubs, are choosing instead to socialise more locally with friends enjoying a few drinks in a fun and lively atmosphere and a few games of bingo, which potentially could bring some extra cash in.
Whatever the reason for the improvement in fortunes for the Gala Bingo Club in Peterborough we hope that it not only continues but that it also is repeated in other clubs around the country.
