Popularity of bingo is proved by the number of people (660 entrants) who took part in PaddyPower.com’s inaugural European Championship of bingo in June.
Robert Robinson from Nottinghamshire (England) became a winner and walked away with a Chevrolet Aveo car which was a top prize.
There was a weekend in Paris, a home makeover, a year of free flights and bingo, laptops and flat screen televisions among other prizes.
However, Robinson admitted that it had been hard for him to qualify online for the final event on June 29.
PaddyPower.com has announced that the event will be held next year.
