Bingo players in Blackpool can take part in a free game tomorrow to celebrate the success of a tax busting campaign.

Chancellor George Osborne recently reduced the duty on bingo clubs from 20 per cent to 10 per cent to allow them to invest in new premises, modernisation and jobs.

The Bingo Association will be holding a ‘Bingo is Boosted!’ celebration at Mecca bingo, Talbot Road, with two free games at 2.30pm and 8.30pm, after the campaign gathered more than 330,000 signatures.

Miles Baron, chief executive, said: “On behalf of The Bingo Association, I would like to say an enormous thank you to the 330,000 people who backed the Boost Bingo campaign by signing our petition, to the dozens of MPs who visited their local club and asked questions in the House, and to the Chancellor for recognising the importance of bingo clubs in nearly 400 communities across Britain.”
