Bingo fans across west London were due to march down to Downing Street and hand over a strong 300,000 signature petition to get bingo duty reduced, today.
Nearly 200 customers from across the country are expected to be joined by MPs to tell the Treasury to lower the excessive tax burden from 20 per cent to 15, in line with other gambling pursuits.
The Boost Bingo campaign, spearheaded by The Bingo Association, has been strongly supported by management of local clubs, customers and the general public.
"Bingo is a much loved game in Feltham and across the country so we are not surprised that hundreds of thousands of people have signed the petition and we are happy to know we have the support of the country behind us," added Mr Ellis.
"The excessively high bingo duty is putting financial pressures on clubs like mine, and preventing investment and the creation of new jobs.
"Bingo supporters across the country have signed the petition and we really hope that the Government listens."
Miles Baron, chief executive of The Bingo Association, said: "Reducing bingo duty will enable clubs to invest in their future. More investment means more jobs and more thriving bingo communities.
"If bingo duty is lowered from 20% to 15%, the industry as a whole has committed to substantial investment in modernisation and jobs.
"We hope that when the Government receive the hundreds of thousands of petition signatures, they will realise this is something that really matters to the British public and lower bingo duty."
