So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the most popular bingo cities in Europe, with a look first at perhaps the most significant bingo city of them all.


The undisputed bingo capital of Europe, the UK has had a love affair with the game ever since it was brought over from the US in the 1950s. Really, is there a more quintessentially British sight than a sprawling bingo hall packed with stern faced gamers sipping on lager and battling it out for a juicy jackpot?

Nowhere is the British love for bingo more evident than in the nation’s capital of London. Here, players can enjoy not only the largest bingo halls in the nation but the widest variety including enormous modern spots and little locals-only places where everybody knows each other's name!


As we have mentioned, Italy is the birthplace of bingo. Back in the middle ages, the “lottery game” was played by folks across the land’s various city states who bought in for a chance to win.

Today, Italians remain enamoured with bingo, with the capital of Rome the best places to play in the nation. The 90 ball version is the most popular of all, with this the most widely enjoyed across the 300 official halls across Italy today. In Rome, young people are even getting involved in the bingo fun!


The third and final entrant onto our list may surprise some readers, with Russia not necessarily the first place you think of when it comes to bingo. However, there is one element in particular that makes Moscow a popular European bingo city.

In Russia, particularly in Moscow, TV bingo is enjoyed by a wide audience. Day to day, players call in to enjoy television versions of this beloved game, allowing for an interactive experience from the comfort of players’ own home!

Overall, it can be said that Europe remains a bingo hotspot and, although these three cities are among the most popular, the entire continent adores this historic game!
