Bingo is relatively new to the Internet, with one of the earliest games played in 1996. But the simplicity and easy rules of the game have made it an Internet hit over the past decade with people from all over the world playing in the masses every day.
In UK, bingo is popularly known as Housey Housey where as in Australia and New Zealand it is known as Housie, where unlimited numbers of players can join in this game. Each player is provided with a ticket that has several numbers. The game conductor calls out a number and players have to tick off that number from their ticket. Very similar to online poker, with online bingo everything is virtual and can be played whatever your age. Bingo is a game of luck and chances that can be played anywhere, from a charity function to birthday parties.
Two Types Of Bingo Played Around The World
75-Ball Bingo: In 75 ball bingo, the game starts with a simple line and carries on to more complicated patterns. The objective of the game however remains the same, i.e. to mark off numbers and achieve the desired theme or pattern.

The first column has numbers 1 to 10, the second numbers 11 to 20, and the third numbers 21 to 30. This continues all the way to the final column, which has numbers 81 to 90.

You need to think about what you want from a bingo game before you can choose which one you think will be the best for you to try. You may like a game where you can win a prize. Although when you play for free, it is harder to find these, there are a few free games around which have prizes. These will not be anything like as big as the big jackpots offered on the pay to play games, but you could still have a chance of winning something. You will need to take a look at the different games to see what you can win. Some sites will allow you to play free games once you have played a certain amount of paid ones. Some are financed by advertising and so will have a small prize paid for by the advertising revenue.
You may want to play free bingo just for the fun or it and not be bothered about prizes. Then you may have other features that you like from a game. You may like a theme or a fun site and perhaps you might want a friendly chat available while you play or want games that can be won easily.

Looking for every bingo site and comparing jackpots can be difficult, particularly if they change. However, you could find that some sites keep their jackpots consistent and you will be able to know which of those are low or high once you take a quick look at them. You may find that on some bingo review websites they will list the jackpots on there and so you will be able to compare the sites using this. Jackpots will change over time though and so you will need to make sure that you have up to date information. This is trickier and will mean that you will need to keep a watch yourself. It can be worth having a list of the top five jackpot sites and then you will be able to check them regularly to see if they change at all. It is worth checking out several sites that have this sort of information and comparing them as they may not all be the same. Continue reading “How to Find the Best Bingo Jackpots”
Many people might think that this refers to winning a jackpot. Obviously winning an online bingo bingo jackpot could be a life changing but it is a very unlikely thing to happen. It is far more likely that you win a small prize if you win anything at all. It is the fact that you have access to a mobile game which could make a big difference to your life.
If you are a big bingo fan then you may have found that you spent a lot of time going to bingo halls in the past but you could not do it that often because they were not open that much. Many have even closed down lately and so it can be difficult to even find a place to play bingo in some places. Continue reading “Why Mobile Bingo could change Your life”
One big drawback about playing online bingo for many people is the fact that it is not as social. Many people would have gone out for an evening to the bingo with a group of friends, had a few drinks and chat while they played and maybe even gone on to another venue afterwards to continue the fun. However, with online bingo there is not this social element but you can still have fun with friends even if you are not going to a bingo hall.
One way to have fun is to have your friends over to your house and all play the same online bingo game together on your mobile devices. You can still chat and have a few drinks at the same time as playing and this can be a great way for you all to have fun. You could all play one game together or you could all play within the same bingo room and have your own individual bingo cards. It all depends on what you think will be more fun for you. If you cannot all get together in the same place, you can still play the same game but just in different venues. You will be able to still chat either using a system in the game if there is a chat room or your own messenger or VOIP systems. This can be great for you if you have young families and cannot get out easily or if your friends live a long distance away from you and so it is difficult for you to meet up.

Playing bingo online can be great fun, but it may not feel the same as playing in a bingo hall. You miss out on that socialising, even if there is chat in the bingo. You also miss out on the eating and drinking that you may normally do when you pay in a bingo hall. However, it is possible to do this even if you are at home playing an online game.
It is important to carefully consider drinks. You want to make sure that you do not drink too much alcohol or you may end up spending more than you intend to. If you have had a few drinks you may not be so worried about how much money you spend on the games that you are playing. You may be more tempted to gamble more money than you can afford and you may end up losing a lot of money. It is important to remember that playing bingo should be about having fun rather than about trying to win money. It may be harder to keep this in mind when you are playing.
