Membership of The Bingo Association is open to all organisations directly involved in and/or interested in the licensed bingo industry in Great Britain. All applications for membership are considered by the Association’s Executive Council and are subject to conditions.

There are two grades of membership, Full and Associate. Only those directly engaged in the operational aspect of the bingo industry, and who have confirmed that they meet all current and relevant GB licensing requirements, may apply and be put forward to the Executive Council for consideration for Full Membership.

Associate Members provide products and/or services to the land-based bingo industry but are not bingo operators. For more information please visit our Associate Membership page.
