Playtime Nanaimo Bingo closes its doors


On October 27, Playtime Nanaimo Bingo closes the doors on its bingo facility in Nanaimo's downtown core.

The facility closure is a result of decreasing attendance and reduced player demand.

Nanaimo players still have bingo and gaming options in their community, including Harbour City Bingo and Casino Nanaimo.

Playtime is a private company that owns and operates a number of gaming facilities in British Columbia for BCLC. No other facilities are affected by the closure.
