This weekend, bingo clubs in Preston will be offering customers the chance to play free games to mark the nationwide launch of the Boost Bingo campaign.

It’ll be eyes down in the afternoon and evening of Friday 17, Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 January, as customers play for the chance to win cash prizes in the Boost Bingo free games.

Nearly 400 bingo clubs across Britain will be taking part during the launch weekend.

The Boost Bingo campaign, led by The Bingo Association, calls on the Government to bring tax on bingo in line with other popular leisure pursuits. Most other gambling activities are taxed at 15%, but the bingo industry has been subjected to bingo duty at 20%.

The Boost Bingo campaign is calling for the Government to lower the excessive tax burden, which is preventing investment, modernisation and job creation.
