The World’s Top 10 Bingo Halls Rated by Seating Capacity

For decades bingo has been a very popular game on both sides of the Atlantic so it should come as no surprise that the world’s largest bingo halls are located in the United States and Great Britain. At today’s Foxwoods casino and bingo hall players find it hard to believe that the mega casino started out as a humble bingo hall. In 1991 Malaysian developer Lim Goh Tong helped the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation to start the bingo hall that evolved into the Foxwoods resort and casino. The resort has 344,000 square feet of casino space making it the largest bingo hall on the planet. Here are the top 10 Bingo Parlors ranked by seating capacity;

1.    Foxwoods Resort Casino – 4,000
2.) San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino – 2,500
3.) Isleta Casino & Resort – 2,500
4.) Cherokee Tribal Bingo – 2,000
5.) Penobscot High Stakes Bingo – 1,800

8.) Potawatomi Bingo Casino – 1,354

Foxwoods has a definite edge as the largest bingo hall but 340 miles north of Foxwoods the Penobscot High Stakes Bingo Hall can seat 1,800 players. The San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino is located 60 miles west of Los Angeles and can easily seat 2,500 players. The San Manuel bingo hall features special games and promotions such as the Beat the Taxman Bingo where 15 regular games will pay $1,199 which is exactly one dollar less than the amount players would have to report to the Internal Revenue Service. The Isleta Casino and Resort specializes in high stakes bingo and can seat over two thousand players.

In the UK Gala is the largest operator of bingo halls. The company operates a chain of halls throughout the UK and the Gala Bingo Peterborough Westfield is their largest bingo operation in the UK. In Great Britain huge bingo halls are common and the game is a firmly entrenched part of British culture. The Potawatomi Bingo Casino in Milwaukee is undergoing expansion and the tribe plans to open a large hotel in the very near future. In the United States bingo halls and casinos have brought prosperity to formerly impoverished reservations.
