Bingo Bloggers

Two Little Fleas wanted to create a page where anyone could voice their views on any issue related to bingo, gaming or gambling; that’s why we created Bingo Bloggers in July 2014 to provide a space where bingo lovers could write without constraint about the game they love. If you think you have what it takes, we would love to hear from you! All you need is a strong passion for bingo and a word processor. Email us at introducing yourself and let us know what you would like to write about!

Gala Coral has a great 2014

Citing the impact of the 2014 Fifa World Cup national Football team tournament and the reduction in bingo duty in the UK, Gala… Read more »

To Share or not to Share: Bingo Prizes

Bogus Bingo Bonuses It seems a lot of Bingo sites are offering a ‘share’ of large bingo prize sums in order to be able to share a large unattainable figure that will bring in the crowds. We saw it with the chance to win £1,000,000 from Mecca Bingo, players we drawn in, hoping to win the… Read more »

Taking No Hostages: The POC Tax Strikes Again

Hello Roomies! Today we here at Two Little Fleas would like to take the opportunity to get up on our soapbox because there are some big changes being made in the bingo world— not all of them good, and some of them downright scary. No this isn’t an article about Halloween… it’s about the upcoming… Read more »

Why it’s better to bet with friends

“We’ll be Friends forever, won’t we, Pooh?’ asked Piglet. Even longer,’ Pooh answered.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh   In the past week, Two Little Fleas has carried two stories of friends sharing their winnings. In one instance, a pair of middle-aged bingo players split their winnings between themselves, each working away with a tidy £25,000…. Read more »

When is government intervention warranted?

As regular readers of my Two Little Fleas column will know – I don’t particularly like governmental interference with the personal liberties of the British people. This is the case whether concerning the gambling industry, alcohol industry, or smoking industry (my three vices, you see). However, this week, there has been one particular call for… Read more »

Cheap gimmicks from Labour

Ah yes, it is that time of the week again when politicians once again feel the need to attack the gambling industry. Damn, just when we so very nearly made it to the end of the week, you may very well think to yourself. Well, you didn’t honestly believe they were going to leave us… Read more »

Gross double standards regarding the gambling industry

We often hear about the immorality of tax evasion. Certainly, it is an issue that irritates people. And, in all fairness, why shouldn’t it? People work hard, and don’t necessarily like the government taking from them. I know I certainly don’t. And, I suspect, you don’t much, either. Tax is one of those life certainties,… Read more »

The government’s online gambling legislation will backfire

People don’t like gambling, of that there is no doubt. It is hardly a badly-kept secret that people view betting with disdain. Reader, you know what I mean. That visceral judgement you see people pass on you when they know that you gamble and it’s not something which passes their bien pesant morality. It seems like little… Read more »

What happened to bingo?

Do you remember the days when bingo was a nice quiet, peaceful game? I’m sure you do. Even at my tender age, I certainly do. Back when I played with my Nan as a kid, I recall it was always a peaceful and joyous occasion. However, looking at the bingo news over the last week… Read more »

The EU can bog off

It seems the bureaucrats at the European Parliament are now focusing their energy on a new vice. Reader, is it my imagination or do they ever stop pontificating from atop their pedestals? It would seem that a day doesn’t go by nowadays when they are not lecturing sovereign states about something – whether cigarette packaging,… Read more »
