Bingo is a game which has a relatively high Return To Player percentage, and since the cost of the tickets is relatively low, usually 1p or 5p, the amount a player loses is not much in comparison. The players may also purchase fewer tickets per session if they choose to.
The main reason why people indulge in a game of bingo is the socialising aspect of the game. Sitting on a table surrounded by many players, and gossiping about their lives, discussing current events etc. creates a community of bingo players who are familiar with one another. This social aspect of the game has now moved to online bingo where a chat function exists which is moderated by Chat Hosts and where players know each other on a personal level.
