Bingo was once an industry in decline with venues across the world closing down because of poor attendance figures and declining revenue. Today, thanks to online bingo sites, the industry has experienced a boom and while it may not be as big of a draw as it once was in the live arena, a growing number of people are enjoying the game on the internet.
However, despite this recent growth in participation across Europe, there are still a number of abandoned bingo halls across the UK. Looking like scenes from an Alfred Hitchcock movie, these once bustling venues now sit desolate and dilapidated, but not empty if some people are to be believed.
Tales of spooky goings on are always fun and some of the UK’s finest ghost stories have come from the UK’s bingo halls. Whether real or fake, these stories have captured the imagination of bingo players and ghost hunters alike.
The UK’s Most Haunted Bingo Halls
The Sutton Spirits: Sutton Bingo Hall has long been connected with the legend of a grey ghost known as The Grey Man. Located in the Rosehill part of Sutton, the abandoned hall is a grade II listed building that was once a cinema and in 2011 it became the site of a séance by the Ghost Club. Getting permission from the bingo venue’s owner, the team of investigators used a crystal ball to tap into the spiritual energy of the place.
After a few hours of investigation, the team reported a series of inexplicable events, including lights flickering, doors slamming and noises. Looking into the history of the building, the team found that a man had reportedly committed suicide in the building back in 1965 and it is this grey figure who allegedly torments players while they play their favourite bingo games.
The Phantom Caller: One of the more interesting bingo-related ghost stories from the bingo world is the phantom caller of Huddersfield. Although the details are scant, the story goes that a lucky player’s luck instantly turned sour after they won the jackpot. After filling their card and calling their full house, the player reportedly dropped down dead in the middle of the game due to the shock of winning. Today, the player is said to continually walk the halls at night in search of their winnings.
The Invicta Tragedy: The final story of haunted bingo halls comes courtesy of the Invicta in Kent. The former bingo hall and cinema was used during the Second World War to house families during the most intense period of fighting. Unfortunately, the building suffered a bomb attack during the blitz and three children and two adults were killed.
Those deaths allegedly still reverberate in the hall today and since the 1970s a man in green has been spotted on numerous occasions lingering around the building. Quite what he’s looking for is unknown, but if it’s a game of bingo then he’s out of luck. Of course, he could always try and connect to the internet from the spirit world and play on some bingo sites. But we’re not sure how fast the connection would be in the afterlife!
