The Debate over "Two Fat Ladies” Bingo Name: What New Research Shows
When you think about online bingo, do you think about the nicknames given to some of the number combinations like lucky seven and two little ducks? While bingo names have been around and actively used for years, new research shows that the debate about Two Fat Ladies' suitability is still being discussed.
Paddy Power recently conducted an online poll of about 2000 British people and asked them whether the Two Fat Ladies' term was offensive and whether it should stay or go.
The results found that 24% of Brits believed that the Two Fat Ladies' bingo call was offensive and should not be used anymore. Although this was the overall opinion, how Brits voted differed depending on location and age group.
Londoners are the most concerned individuals in the country, as 1 in 3 want to scrap Two Fat Ladies, followed by those in Cardiff.
Newcastle, however, were more supportive of the bingo name, as only 1 in ten said it should be revoked.
Regarding age, only 16% of Baby Boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) think the term should be cancelled, compared to 19% of Gen X (born between 1966 and 1980) and 24% of Millennials.
Generation Z (18-24-year-olds) were least supportive of the term, but only 37% said it should no longer be used in bingo games.
So, it seems that although the bingo name Two Fat Ladies continues to create debate, its supporters stand strong. With less than half of those questioned not ready to ditch the term, it looks set to remain as one of the popular bingo names.
