MetadataShow full item record
AbstractFunded by the Economic and Social Research Council, one of the UK’s main academic research funders, the three-year project selected four case studies of bingo in England and Wales, Canada, Brazil, and online in the European Union. We wanted to gain a good overview of the diverse ways in which bingo is played (online versus land-based; in commercial halls versus in charitable facilities), and of legal approaches (e.g. criminal prohibition, licensing as charitable activity; licensing as commercial activity).
