The start of London 2012 is little more than 200 days away and Bingoport, the leading online bingo portal in the UK and Europe, have got into the spirit of things by releasing a special Bingo Olympics infographic.

Olympic fever is sweeping the nation as the build up to next year's sporting extravaganza gathers pace.
Hundreds of thousands of people, many of whom regularly play online bingo, are expected to flock to the 32 venues staging everything from archery to wrestling in London and other cities such as Manchester and Newcastle.

The record books are likely to be rewritten in many of the different events as the likes of Usain Bolt prepare to do battle on the track, which got the people at Bingoport thinking about a few interesting bingo-related records.

Hours of thorough research reaped rich reward as the bingo boffins at Bingoport unearthed a host of fascinating stats about the nation’s favourite hobby.

So, in true bingo style, eyes down as we run through some of the fascinating facts and figures to emerge from the 'Bingoport Olympics'.

Like did you know the three biggest bingo wins ever are £1,167,795, £1,101,686 and a cool £1million respectively? Imagine walking away with enough money from something as simple and straightforward as a game of bingo so that you could retire from the winnings! Well, that dream is a reality for a few lucky bingo players.

Here's another bingo nugget from Bingoport for you to digest - If you line up all the bingo balls used in the last three months it would actually stretch the length of more than 300 marathons. A marathon is classed at 26.2 miles, meaning the bingo balls would line up for more than 7,860 miles. That's a fair old line of bingo balls right there?

Bingoport also discovered that a total of 493,820 people went head to head in the largest ever online bingo game. That works out six times the capacity of the London Olympic stadium, which will play host to the opening and closing ceremony as well as a plethora of other high-profile events and medal ceremonies.
