The current climate throws up much uncertainty, but while we carry on as usual in a haze of confusion and in need of a distraction, online casinos continue to give us a form of entertainment and release. Those that are craving Bingo halls to re-open will be able to pursue digital alternatives and for long-standing traditionalists, there are plenty of advantages to online Bingo. Not yet tried it for yourself? Read on, as we list the top reasons why you should make it your new favorite pastime.
Play anytime and anywhere
There’s no fear of online Bingo rooms closing down because games run every minute. You won’t have long to wait to join your favorite one and you’re able to purchase your Bingo tickets in advance too. If you’ve purchased a ticket and then forget to play your game, you needn’t worry because the software continues to play your card for you. If you’re a winner, you’ll have the welcome bonus of money in your account when you next log-in. Online Bingo can be played anytime and anywhere, so long as you have a decent internet connection, you can play from any location – near or far. Eyes down…
Socialize with your fellow roomies
Some say the art of Bingo is the social aspect – and that is very true. Bingo callers like a laugh and audience participation is often a must. But online Bingo is equally as sociable. Each game will have a chatroom, run by a host or moderator, and whether you’re a newbie or a regular, you’ll be welcomed. Much like traditional Bingo with its own lingo through the ball calls, the online equivalent has a very different language too. Chat is often formed through acronyms, so you may need to learn your 2TG from your WTG before you play. Otherwise, have some fun, try and win some real money and chat to your new virtual friends to your heart’s content.
Small prices – big prizes
Whatever your budget, there will be an online Bingo game to suit you. Super Bargain rooms offer tickets from as little as a penny or 2p – and of course, you can buy as many tickets as you like. Games will have a guaranteed jackpot, but the total prize is often determined by the number of players entered, or the amount of tickets purchased. Bonus jackpots are also available if you’re lucky enough to win a full house within a certain number of calls. Most of the time, there are multiple prizes to be won – for landing a single line, a double line, or a house – and even additional side games too. As the phrase goes, you need to be in to win it!
Variety is the spice of life
Unlike a dedicated Bingo hall that plays out the traditional 90-ball game, playing online Bingo offers up so many alternatives. 90-ball Bingo remains the most popular variation online, but if you fancy something new, find a different way to play. There’s 75-ball Bingo which is played on a 5×5 card, with the middle square kept free – meaning you just need 24 numbers for a full house. Or 80-ball Bingo, with each ticket made up of 16 squares on a 4×4 grid. No free spaces though – you need to mark all 16 numbers to win. Alternatively, mix things up with a variety of games with differing numbers of balls and styles of tickets. Once you get into the swing of things, you’ll find the right game for you – and in the meantime, keep trialling them.
You don’t need to be a Bingo regular expert to get into the online equivalent. There are barely any rules and the aim of the game, is of course, to try and get a full house – or land all the numbers on your card. Typically, you’ll win a smaller prize by landing a single line, double line, or random pattern. As we’ve mentioned new games are constantly starting and games only run for a minute or two, so it’s hardly time-consuming. If you’ve bought too many tickets and can’t keep track, or time is not on your side, the auto daub function will be your best friend – it marks all your chosen numbers without you needing to do a single thing. For those with fast-paced lives, online Bingo offers a quicker, slicker version of the traditional game, so why not give it a go today?
