Thursday night rolls around again and so does Bingo in Moyvane. Did you know that Bingo is good for you? It helps retain and improve our mental health and brain dexterity, it is a way to exercise those little grey cells. A researcher from Southampton University told a British Psychological Society conference that bingo players were faster and more accurate than non-bingo players on tests measuring mental speed, the ability to scan for information, and memory. Her research found older players even outperformed younger counterparts, suggesting keeping the brain active keeps it sharper for longer. So there you go, no excuse, head for bingo, enjoy a night out, meet friends and win some money. You may even get to spin the wheel and take home that €2,000.
