Proposal

To mark bingo halls, buildings designed for playing the game of bingo (aka Housie or Housie-Housie)

Rationale

New

Currently, such features mapped as amenity=gambling + gambling=*. In fact, amenity=gambling is used primarily for bingo (casinos and slot machines have their own tags). Uniform scheme for gambling facilities is not exist, so replacement amenity=gambling make sense.

Old

Bingo halls are common buildings in the UK. The game's popularity has recently surged, with new halls being built.

Possible icons

I would think of this as a node or area to show the building.

I drafted an icon (SVG available):
