I’m always obsessed with trying new things. I had so much fun at the Rainbow bingo hosted by the fabulous Sylvia O’Stayformore. It was during St Patrick’s day, and I definitely recommend checking it out. It’s one of those things you want to try at least once.

*One of the most important facets in life is trying new things.  Some activities that may or may not be beneficial for you in the long run might offer a fun experience. Novelty is the spice of life.  Take playing bingo, for instance. According to Strange Life, bingo traces its origins back to the early 1500s. It started as an obscure Italian lottery variant.  It then penetrated mainstream society. The simple rules, nail-biting finishes, and of course exciting prizes make it fun.

Other than being a pastime played in huge gaming halls, bingo is now also online. Online bingo offers different promotional endeavors and themed games. It even stepped up its prizes, deviating from the usual cash incentives. Gala Bingo, for one, has a promo called Rainbow Riches. It offers gadgets, event tickets, and best of all, European tour packages.

Local bingo games also have their share of followers. Sno-Valley Senior Center is one of the many assisted living centers offering bingo. They arrange themed bingo parties complete with a costume contest and a light dinner. The best part of these bingo events is  the effervescent host named Sylvia O’Strayformore. It’s obvious why the game is the go-to activity for a lot of senior citizens. What’s not obvious is the handful of benefits. These factors might get you hooked with the game before reaching your golden age.

Here are 4 hidden benefits of Bingo!

Bingo Enhances Your Cognitive Skills

Simultaneous things happen during a typical round of bingo.  Playing it on a regular basis can enhance your cognitive skills. There have been tests showing how bingo players performed better than non-bingo fans. These tests were on memory, mental speed, and information retention.

Bingo Sharpens Hand-Eye Coordination

You can slow down the decline of your reflex and coordination by playing bingo. This is due to the quick pace of the game coupled with its repetitive nature. These can sharpen your hand-eye coordination. It’s like playing video games albeit with a more personal twist.

Bingo Improves Social Aptitudes

Bingo is a social game altogether. As you play and interact with your peers, you can build community for years to come. Furthermore, these shared interactions are important elements to maintain a happy and healthy life. Community has a positive effect on longevity.

Bingo Enriches Physical Health

We all know laughter is the best medicine. Bingo events usually offer many opportunities to laugh.  Everything from witty lingo, the over-the-top enthusiasm of players, and of course winsome hosts. Laughing activates plenty of physical changes in the body. These changes can reduce pain, reduce stress, and boost your immune system.

There are so many reasons to book a bingo night for your next date night or girl’s night out! If you can’t get out of the house, you can even get your dose of bingo online.
