Play bingo at Palace Bingo

One evening last week, your author unexpectedly found himself at the Palace Bingo Club in Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre. It was hard to tell whether the experience was good or bad, and it is best described as like going numb in a vast room void of natural light.

An expanse of humanity seemingly sits up there at all hours, listening to the trundle of numbers coming from an apparently disembodied voice, and repeated on screens as far as the eye can see, occasionally hooking up with other clubs around the nation who are presumably playing with similar disinterest.

That said, there's something vaguely exciting about the experience, and whilst your author would have been too worried about getting it wrong to actually call out, the playing was the main thing and the whole experience was relatively cheap. There are also vendors to keep you fed, watered and to fulfil any sort of gambling habit you may have.
