Talk about reinventing the wheel! The UK’s wildly popular and highly unexpected cult event, Bongo’s Bingo is launching in Sydney and Melbourne.
Bongo’s Bingo is a games night like you’ve never seen before. Part club, part rave, and, of course, part bingo night, this unlikely fusion event has been hugely popular in the UK since 2015. Now, they’re taking the show on the road and launching in Australia this June.
In partnership with Wats On Events, Bongo’s Bingo Down Under is throwing a massive bingo rave in Sydney’s Paddington on June 23, then launching a national tour the following week in Melbourne’s Collingwood.
If you thought the use of PET’s (Personalised Electronic Terminals) were progressive when it came to bingo games, Bongo’s Bingo includes rave intervals, dancing on tables and a loose kind of bingo game. The victorious players can win everything from cash prizes to a Hills Hoist. Check out this video for a better sense of this crazy night out and discover why the term Bingo Break takes on a whole new meaning.
The Sydney launch event will be presided over by founder and comic ringleader Jonny Bongo who, also holds the world record for the biggest ever pub quiz.
Australia is the second international location for Bongo’s Bingo, which recently launched in Dubai and, based on popularity, is expected to continue to expand around the globe.
