There are few games that aren’t elevated by a fitting soundtrack. Licensing music to each video game is big business and the Super Bowl halftime show, this year Rihanna headlines, has become as big as the sporting event itself.

Bingo, the game that continues to take the country – and the world – by storm, can also be made more exciting with the right music. It’s heads down and full concentration mode during rounds, and the choice of music, if any, should not hinder people hearing the calls but between games you can set the tone with your favourite playlist.

Online bingo providers like Jackpotjoy not only offer exhilarating traditional bingo action but also a full library of bingo slots for when you want a change of pace. The music at these sites is unobtrusive, so you can remain focused on the game, but with the option to autofill your bingo cards, even if you’ve purchased dozens, you’re free to blast whatever tracks will get you in the mood for winning without missing a single call.

We explore the best genres of music to accompany your bingo sessions.
Known for its catchy beats and energetic rhythms, pop music makes the perfect match for the thrills and spills of a bingo game. Popular pop songs from past and recent years can be a great addition to your game, raising energy levels for everyone in the room.

"I Gotta Feeling" by The Black Eyed Peas – This upbeat party song will keep spirits high as you play. The optimistic message might just be a prediction of your fortunes for the evening.
Oldies can be a great addition to bingo as they are well known and easily sung along to. Even if some oldies numbers are a little cheesy you’ll have to dig pretty deep to find a genre of music that brings people together in quite the same way.

"We Are the Champions" by Queen – This classic rock anthem is perfect for those moments when you are about to bring in the big cash prize. You can sing it on repeat on your journey home!
Unlike most music featured in this list, at moderate levels, jazz music can be mellow enough to not interfere with your game. It can add a more sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere to the game with its smooth melodies and upbeat tempo.

“Take Five” by Dave Brubeck – “Man alive…number 5”. This stone cold classic of the jazz world sets the scene for the ultimate in laid back cool. If The Monte Carlo Casino had bingo, we’re pretty sure they’d be playing this.
For those that like their music a little rougher around the edges, rock has all the elements to make sure you’ve got the grit and steely focus needed to win your game of bingo. Classic rock songs from bands like Queen, The Beatles, or The Rolling Stones are great for bingo as they have a high energy and a catchy rhythm that can get people moving and singing along.

"Eye of the Tiger" by Survivor – This iconic rock song from the movie Rocky is perfect for when you are feeling competitive and ready to win. It’s sure to give you all the courage you need to yell “HOUSE!” at the top of your lungs when the time comes.
Dance Music
If you’re lucky enough to have the winning ticket, you might already feel like dancing, so having the right tunes to move to is a must. Dance music is high energy and exciting just like a quick fire game of 30 ball bingo.

”Get Up (Rattle)” by Bingo Players ft. Far East Movement – what artist could be better suited to get you amped up for your gaming session. The Dutch EDM superstars were joined by LA group Far East Movement to deliver a high octane slice of feel good fun.
Disco music is known for its uplifting tempo and catchy beats, making it perfect for bingo. Classic disco songs from the 70s and 80s add a fun and energetic atmosphere to the game and are reminiscent of the glittering disco halls of yesteryear.

"Celebration" by Kool & The Gang – everyone immediately recognises this disco megahit from the drum roll intro alone. As the name suggests, it’s perfect for when your numbers come up and you’re celebrating a big money win!
Country music is also a great fit for bingo as it often has a fun, lively tempo and can be easy to sing along to. With its sometimes outlandish themes, there’s a country song for every occasion.

“9 to 5” by Dolly Parton – bingo is all about getting away from the monotony of your day job and enjoying some well earned gaming time, and the Queen of Nashville does an excellent job of reminding us of this.

Ultimately, the best genre of music to accompany your bingo nights will depend on your own tastes and preferences but generally upbeat and easy to sing along to songs are the best fit for the game.
