Where can I play bingo in Elkton, Maryland?

Bingo is played in venues called bingo halls. The thing is, anywhere can be a bingo hall! As long as it hosts a bingo game, it's a bingo hall. That means your nearest bingo hall could be your local veterans' club, church, or fire station! Bingo halls are rarely a for-purpose venue in Maryland. That is because bingo must be run for charity in this state, and so having a permanent bingo hall would be a big expense. More commonly, a venue is rented for the game, or organizations use their own space. Despite all their differences, a bingo hall tends to be set up in the same way ready for a game. There are tables and chairs for the players, a bingo caller at the front, and of course, plenty of excitement!
