What safety measures will be in place?
Our teams have developed a robust plan to put in place the highest standards of health and wellbeing measures to ensure the safety of guests and our teams when we reopen.
Key measures include:
- • Social distancing will be introduced, with clear signage throughout to help guide customers
- • Some tables, chairs and slot machines won’t be in use, with clear signage to help customers know which to use
- • A capacity cap will be in place with Mecca limiting the number of players in the bingo halls at one time
- • Enhanced cleaning routines will be established with members of our teams cleaning as they go and all tables, machines and touchpoints will be cleaned regularly throughout the day
- • Visitors will be asked to clean their hands with hand sanitiser stations readily available around all clubs.
Clubs are going contactless including playing and paying, but you still have the option to use cash. Customers will be able to order food and drink using their mobile or MAX screen at their bingo table.
Will it only be possible to pay with a contactless card now in clubs?
We are encouraging all customers to use contactless payment wherever possible, but we will still accept cash payments in all clubs. Customers will also be able to order food and drink using their mobile or MAX screen at their bingo table.
What extra cleaning will be done?
Enhanced cleaning routines will be established. Our teams cleaning as they go and all tables, machines and touchpoints will be cleaned regularly throughout the day. Customers will be asked to clean their hands, with hand sanitiser stations readily available around all clubs.
How will you enforce/respect social distancing in clubs?
To help with social distancing measures, we will have clear signage throughout the club to help direct customers as part of their experience. Some tables, chairs and slot machines won’t be in use, with clear signage displayed to help customers know which to use.
A capacity cap will also be in place with Mecca limiting the number of players in the bingo halls at one time.
What will happen if the club has reached capacity?
In order to ensure we’re adhering to social distancing measures; we will be putting a capacity cap on our clubs. If any of our clubs are at capacity, then unfortunately customers will not be allowed to come inside and will be asked to come back later or on a different day. However, will be launching a pre booking service in July which will allow customers to secure their space to play and avoid disappointment.
Can you reserve to play/visit?
We will be launching a pre booking service in July which will allow customers to secure their space to play and avoid disappointment.
