Are you addicted to bingo?

Are you addicted to bingo? One in 10 people who play bingo are at risk of developing a gambling problem according to the Responsible Gambling Trust.

Iain Corby from the charity said that although many people go to bingo for a "cup of tea and a moderately priced meal" there are some who have a gambling addiction.

He added that whilst bingo is a "great opportunity to get out and keep the braincells going" steps are being taken to "raise the profile" of the risks and encourage people to "ask for help" if they need it.
