Changing minds about what a typical gaming hall may look like today, the 'Rise of Bingo' infographic details a generational change in the way people gamble.

Focusing on the typically senior and female-focused game of Bingo, this chart highlights the way in which an online version of the game has changed the face of who plays. Now dominated by younger females who partake online instead of in Bingo halls, this industry-focused chart marks a major shift. Mostly attributed to the smoking bans in many places, the online Bingo industry was born once halls no longer appealed to the typical customers. The online gaming sphere has a huge economic impact in and of itself, so it's no surprise that this typically in-person game would make such a profitable shift.

Enlightening and full of unlikely and surprising statistics, this infographic is a great way to see what's going on in the online gambling industry.
