FINALLY: Bingo During Christian Holidays No Longer Illegal In Iceland

Icelandic bingo fans, rejoice! Parliament passed a bill recently that now allows bingo, along with other lotteries and games, to be played in various public places on Sundays and other Christian holidays for the first time in 20 years. Before this bill's passage, it was common for some organizations to conduct bingo during these times as a display of civil disobedience.

Are there any bingo regulations in your area you would like to see overturned, or any you'd like to see implemented? Let us know in the comments or on our social media!
