Abstract: Bingo is a popular past time with many older Albertans. However, little is known about older adult lifestyles within the gaming context and little attention has been paid to the positive gambling issues among the elderly, and especially women given that they are the dominant social stereotype in bingo. The objectives of this study were: 1) to identify the social and health characteristics of elders who play bingo; 2) to understand the lifestyle patterns of a bingo ‘way of life’ among weekly players in later life; 3) to capture the personal meaning of, and motivation for, the bingo experience and its contribution to a ‘good old age’ (health, wellness and quality of life).
