The World's Most Haunted Bingo Halls

It’s officially the creepiest day of the year – Halloween!

We have the perfect story to get you in the spirit (sorry, had to do it!), since we discovered that it’s not only houses that go bump in the night but, believe it or not, bingo halls!

The Mirror has featured 3 of the most haunted bingo halls, and we thought we’d help share the chills around! 

Chatham Kent – “The Man in Green”

Now with a bingo hall in its spot, The Invicta in Chatham was originally a cinema. But during the Second World War it was turned into a shelter for those who had lost their homes as a result of Blitz bombings.

Spooky noises were reported in the building throughout the 1940’s, but no sightings occurred until the 1970’s.

In 1974, the first account of a ghostly man in green emerged. He was apparently always seen during the evening and had been witnessed on several occasions by an all-night cleaner.

By 1975 interest had grown to the point that a clairvoyant was brought in to assist with further investigation.

The sensitive heard the name Bill Malan and stated that this man was associated with the building when it had been a cinema. The fact the ghostly figure had been sighted wearing a military style green uniform would suggest that he worked as perhaps an usher.

This was confirmed when further research was done and a Mr W. Malan was recorded as having been a commissionaire at the cinema for over 15 years, until his death in 1955. He had always worn a green uniform!

How spooky!

Rosehill, Surrey – “The Grey Man at the Bingo Hall”

Also originally a cinema/theatre, this bingo hall was built in the late 1930’s.

Now a Mecca Bingo club, the hall was first known as The Gaumont.

Since the 1960’s there have been stories about unexplained noises and sights, but until recently nothing had ever really been looked into fully.

Most of the reports feature sightings of a shadowy figure called the Grey Man.

In 2011, the operators agreed to let a team of ghost hunters spend the night at the hall.

A crystal ball was used to try and contact the mysterious figure and those at the séance experienced doors slamming and weird noises, as well as unexplainable lights moving across the walls.

Despite not making an actual appearance, the investigators believe the Grey Man may be the spirit of a regular hall attendee who committed suicide in 1965.

Quite a sad story really!

“Inexplicable footsteps at the Bingo Hall” – McLaughlin, South Dakota

Still a functioning hall called Bear Soldier Jackpot Bingo, staff have reported the sound of a child crying, footsteps echoing throughout the building and furniture moving – all after the last bingo player has left!

Rumour has it that the hall was built on top of a former cemetery!

Many employees have been forced to leave their jobs at the bingo hall due to just being too scared to work there.

We don’t blame them!
