We’re now midway through October and things are beginning to feel distinctly autumnal. The leaves are turning brown and falling, there is a chill in the air, and, of course, the shops are full of Halloween-themed merchandise. Trick or treating can be a huge amount of fun; however, it is far from the only way to celebrate Halloween. If you love playing bingo online, then there are some excellent ways of adapting the game for the season, so read on to learn about them.
The easiest thing a bingo fan can do on Halloween is give the classic game a spooky twist. All you have to do is replace the traditional numbers with Halloween-themed images and words. It might be a bit of a stretch to come up with 90 Halloween images or words, so it may be better to adapt a game of 30-ball bingo. However, if you think you can come up with 90, then there is no reason not to.
You could use images such as witches’ hats, cats, pumpkins, broomsticks, spider webs, haunted houses, gravestones, cauldrons, ghosts, zombies, monsters, vampires, chocolates, bats, and so on. If you are playing with kids, then you can use chocolates or sweets to mark the cards, and then the winner of each round gets to keep them all. Alternatively, you could find some cheap Halloween themed bingo prizes.
The game will take a little bit of preparation. However, if designing your own Halloween bingo cards sounds like too much work, then the good news is that there are plenty of free versions available online. All you have to do is download, print, cut them out, and you’re ready to start playing. If you want to make the experience truly spooky, you could play the game in a dimly lit room and create glow-in-the-dark bingo cards and markers.
There are a number of ways you could incorporate bingo into your Halloween celebrations. For instance, if you live somewhere where the children tend to go out trick or treating, then you can create costume bingo cards and have a competition with the neighbours. Create bingo cards with typical Halloween costumes (witch, vampire, zombie, etc.), and mark them off when they appear at your front door.
You can do the same thing if you are going to or hosting a Halloween party. Compete with friends to find all the costumes. Shouting out ‘Bingo’ in the middle of the party may scare a few people, but that’s okay; it is Halloween, after all.
You don’t need to organise your own Halloween themed bingo nights. There are plenty taking place. For example, Hijingo, the popular London bingo venue, is running ‘Ghost In The Machine: Halloween Bingo’ nights, which invites people to “enter an alternate reality of dystopian horror as you join the ultimate high-octane, immersive, multi-sensory bingo experience. Expect disruptions, surprise alerts, and major system failures”.
If you prefer to stick to online bingo, then there are plenty of options. To begin with, you’ll find that the top online bingo sites are running plenty of Halloween-themed promotions offering the chance to win cash, bingo bonuses, and more. There are also Halloween themed rooms and live games taking place, with some huge cash prizes up for grabs.
In other words, there are plenty of ways for bingo fans to celebrate Halloween. Whether you want to create your own bingo game and invite your friends round for a Halloween bingo party, or you simply login to your favourite online bingo website, there is a full house of options waiting for you.
