Julia Eddy has volunteered at bingo games for more than 20 years. She remembers the glory days.

'It used to be 180 to 200 (people) whenever you opened the doors. It didn't matter what time of day,' says Eddy, 39, who manages three charity bingo games a week in Aurora, Colo., near Denver.

Now on a Saturday morning, fewer than half that number show up. Several bingo halls in the area have closed in the past year for lack of business, she says."
