Need a social media vacation? Ditch your smartphone for some retro fun

We’re a plugged-in society, living for the internet, consumed with getting the latest gossip first, tapping into trends while they’re hot and, gaining instant access to the lives of celebrities.

While we’re there for it all – we’ve become overwhelmed with non-stop real-time notifications from the Twitterverse, obsessing over Instagram selfie likes, eye-balling comments sections and, shielding our self-esteems against internet trolls.

Let’s face it, the internet isn’t going away. So, if you’re viewing the world through a smartphone screen, it may be time for a social media cleanse. What is it?

A social media cleanse is just a fancy buzzword for deleting your social apps and, switching off to maintain some level of sanity. Think you can do it?

Why not give Bingo a go? Here’s why Bingo is gaining a younger generation of fans.

1. It’s a social game

It’s a chance to mingle – something we rarely get to do these days! There’s nothing like an old-fashioned bingo evening to bring friends together and, an opportunity to forge new friendships. Everyone can play together, and is a therapeutic way of handling anti-social behaviour.

2. It helps improve your memory Although it’s pretty simple to master, playing Bingo is a great way to improve your short-term memory. It helps you boost your cognitive abilities because the game requires you to concentrate and remain alert.

3. Bingo jackpot: a pot of gold

Ever wondered why Bingo players are so competitive? There’s a guaranteed jackpot at stake and, who doesn’t want to win it? Did you know that many people have become millionaires by playing bingo jackpots? You should try it.

Think you’re up for the challenge and, ready to give up your phone for a few hours? Hit the casino floor to try Silverstar’s new and exciting Bingo, every Monday! No sign-ups needed, just buy a ticket for R10 and, you could stand the chance to win the jackpot.
