Big cash prizes are up for grabs, along with more random items, like a celeb cardboard cut out

First launched in Liverpool in 2015, the raucous event has since grown in popularity and is now popping up in a wealth of locations across the UK - including six dates in Leeds throughout March.

Those who attend are told to expect "an insane mix of a live show, a rave and heads-down bingo, with dance-offs, rave intervals, plenty of heckling, lots of audience participation and countless anthems throughout the night."

How does the game work?

In each game, players have three chances to win.

The game consists of six hours, each with three lines, and the first prize can be won when all the numbers in one horizontal row are called out.

The second prize is for completing two lines, which must be horizontal and within the same house, and the third prize requires all three lines within the same house to be completed.

For one and two lines the first person to call bingo wins the prize.

For the third prize, however, if there is more than one caller, all those with the completed cards will be invited onto the stage to compete for the prize - which is usually in the form of a dance-off, sing-off or musical statues.

What prizes can you win?

A whole host of prizes are up for grabs throughout the night, ranging from big cash prizes of up to £600, to random items, like a Henry hoover, or a cardboard cut out of a celeb to take home.

When is it coming to Leeds?

There will be six Bongo's Bingo events taking place at Canal Mills in Leeds throughout March.
