When Movies and Bingo Meet

Movies that contain an element of gaming are usually a perfect combo of drama, comedy, thrill, action and suspense. Gaming movies have central characters who are portrayed to be dealing with self-destructive psyche or bordering on manic-depressive disorder. No one can refute that movies often portray gaming in negative light and they also brand gaming as another form of gambling. However, when we think about online bingo or its traditional version for that matter, we can say that movie-makers haven't given the game its due importance. If you have played bingo online on any of the myriad UK sites, you would know that it is a passive game of chance where odds are not high but payouts are rewarding. Having said that, it must be surprising to you that such an amazing game was ignored by the screenwriters till now.

As already mentioned, online bingo is a pure game of chance – a fact which is solely responsible for its irrevocable popularity in several countries including UK. Taking its popularity into consideration, bingo should have been represented in a cinematic piece. Sadly, Hollywood hardly had a love affair with bingo. Let's take a look at some of the movie plots which barely skim the surface of this wonderful game that we all love. Hotel Transylvania – It's a movie that tells the tale of Dracula, who is the owner of the said hotel. This is a special kind of hotel where the monsters of this world take a break from the rest of the world. In short, Transylvania is a getaway vacation hotel for the monsters. Frankenstein's monster, Mummy, a werewolf family and an invisible man are the revered guest of this hotel. However, the story takes a turn when an ordinary traveller named Jason turns up at the hotel. When the guests get e bored, bingo is played in the hotel to kill time. This pass-time, of course, is short-lived as plot keeps on twisting and turning.

Big Momma's House 2 – This is another movie where bingo is played in the movie, but it merely appears in the background of the film. A cop goes undercover as a nanny (female) in a house, full of children and other interesting characters. Now he must juggle between his nanny jobs and completing his mission. In the movie, there is a little boy who is considered mute by everyone. But in one scene, while playing a game of bingo, he shouts out “bingo” to the surprise and shock of everyone. Needless to say, chaos ensues after that and there we have it – a plot twist. These were just two of the mainstream movies that made an effort in picturing how much importance a game of bingo has gathered over the years in their own subtle ways. However, as bingo has gone online and gained immense popularity via the various bingo UK sites, we can easily say that movies have not really captured the essense of the game and the happiness it bestows on the bingo players.

Online bingo games have become a crowd favourite. As film makers continue to hunt for good stories with realistic characters, one can hope that bingo will be showcased in a better manner in movies in the future.
