The gaming industry in the Internet has existed for more than 20 years, but online bingo sites have only started to become popular recently.
Traditionally, Bingo is perceived as the game of elderly people, but online Bingo has started to change the statistics. Research taken by the major online gambling software provider “Parlay Entertainment” showed that 58% of the online Bingo players are people younger than 45 years. 29% of this amount are people aged 18 to 34 years and only 2% of all online Bingo lovers today are elderly users (65 years and older).
So what are the differences between online and live Bingo games? What attracts people to play this game in the Internet?
The biggest difference between live Bingo halls and online Bingo is the accessibility of the latter. To play Bingo in the real world, you need to go out and get to a certain place at a certain time, where the game is organized. It is not necessary when playing Bingo online – with the help of your computer you can start playing in minutes without leaving home. You can stop worrying about how to dress or where to get the cash - you can even play in your pajama. The main thing is to have a credit card or some cash in one of the “virtual wallets". So you can play whenever you want, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Nevertheless, Bingo is not just the game. Many Bingo players will confirm the fact that this game is not only an opportunity to play and win, but also the opportunity to meet friends and socialize. People may wrongly think that online Bingo is absolutely devoid of communication. However, it is not true as online providers have taken the importance of social interaction into account, and the majority of Bingo programs include a chat function. This allows players to meet and chat during online games just like in the real life.
Another difference occurs in bonus programs. In live Bingo Halls , you will not receive bonuses, while Internet casinos offer cash deals on first deposits in almost every case. Of course, to win a really big amount of money, you should definitely stick to playing online. Only online Bingo can give you the opportunity to play against 50,000 other players at the same time. As a result, jackpots here are larger, not only because of the huge amount of participants who take part in one game, but also because a lot of online Bingo operators offer fixed jackpots.
As a disadvantage of online Bingo the speed of the game can be mentioned and of course, when a computer program is taking over almost every action for you, the sense and beauty of the game can easily be lost as well.
